By Jeff Foster | August 24, 2012

SmartSound Sonicfire Pro 5 is not only amazing soundtrack scoring software, but also a collection of royalty-free music clips that are fully customizable, with features like Mood Mapping and Timing Control. You can easily pull out select instruments and "write" a complete score of any length you wish. With the Sonicfire Pro 5 software and the Premiere Pro or After Effects plug-ins (CS5 and above), you can streamline this workflow with simple export functions and double-clicking the audio files right inside your timeline.

This video is part of my new SmartSound Sonicfire Pro 5 Workshop online video training title from video2brain. In this workshop, we'll explores the process of selecting and editing the various customizable music libraries using both the Web-based "Quicktracks" and the professional Sonicfire Pro 5 software. You'll also learn a round-trip workflow with a few nonlinear editors and get tips and tricks for further customizing your soundtracks. I've used the SmartSound libraries in my own productions for over a decade and have watched their library expand over the years while their Sonicfire Pro software has become more sophisticated and a powerful multi-track music editor.
