(September 07, 2007--AMSTERDAM, The Netherlands -- IBC Tradeshow Booth # 9-131)Sony Creative Software, a leading provider of professional audio and video editing software applications, today announced the availability of "Hyperculture: New Media Soundtracks" and "Urban 24/7: City Soundmaps", two new royalty-free Theme Packs for its popular and powerful soundtrack production software application, Cinescore.
These two titles add a total of 20 distinctive new Themes to the Cinescore music production system, thus delivering thousands of new options for generating unique, royalty-free music.
"Taking advantage of the superior soundtrack technology inside Cinescore software has allowed us to construct two new Theme Packs that are perfect additions to our growing catalog of royalty free music titles," said Dave Chaimson, vice president of global marketing for Sony Creative Software. "Themes are an integral part of the Cinescore system. These two new titles further expand the creative options available to media producers, helping them to quickly create powerful, royalty-free music that can establish a consistent thematic tone across an entire project."
Urban 24/7: City Soundmaps delivers the audio experience of a major metropolitan cityscape directly into your studio. Cue audiences to react to inner city scenes with royalty-free music maps that are as rich in character as the locations they represent. From block party action to intimate nightclub atmospheres, Urban 24/7 reflects the true diversity of the public and private spaces we use to conduct modern life.
Reflecting the range of the category with the diversity of its content, Hyperculture is the ideal Theme Pack for documenting the New Media experience, blending genres in proportions controlled directly by the end user. Open one of the ten Themes on Hyperculture and create perfectly integrated music by working intuitively with an intriguing set of easy to understand controls. Jazz and symphonic backdrops, rock, pop, hip-hop, electronica, world music and expansive cinematic forms only begin to document the variety found within the Hyperculture Theme Pack. With Hyperculture, producers can easily merge authentic sounds from the global village in ways that resonate with the true spirit of any project.
Cinescore Theme Packs such as Hyperculture and Urban 24/7 are used exclusively within Sony's groundbreaking Cinescore software application. Cinescore offers media producers easy control over an extremely sophisticated music production environment that operates on audio material in real time to create seamless mixes complete with variable signal and effects processing. All Cinescore Theme Packs contain an enormous assortment of music resources that can be customized to suit the demands of any project - with no experience in music composition or recording studio engineering required.
With Cinescore and Sony Creative Software Theme Packs, the music's time and tempo, intensity, variation and repetition can be easily connected with associated video or voiceover down to frame level accuracy to create the perfect soundtrack without requiring any specialized musical knowledge or technical skill by using just a few simple, intuitive controls.
