See your markers in Sonicfire Pro

SmartSound provides Final Cut Pro users with thousands of music selections that can be automatically edited to fit any length of media and dropped into your Final Cut Pro timeline in THREE simple and easy steps.

Step 1. Mark It – Using our new Final Cut Pro Plug-In, Sonicfire Pro 5 automatically reads your Final Cut Pro markers and in/out points and calculates the exact amount of music needed to compliment your visual media.

Step 2. Score It – Quickly search through thousands of tracks using keywords, categories, Sensory Searching (“More Like This, Faster, Slower, More Intense, Less Intense”), or our Tap Tempo feature, which searches using the tempo created by clicking your mouse. Once you find the music track you like, Sonicfire Pro automatically scores it to fit within your Final Cut Pro markers, while preserving the orginal beginning and ending of each music track so your SmartSound selections sound like they were uniquely composed for your project.

Sonicfire Create Soundtracks at Any Length you need Step 3. Send It – Once you have customized your music track in Sonicfire Pro, simply click the “Send To” button and your music selection is added directly to your Final Cut Pro project.

Roundtrip Editing that Works!

We know projects can evolve over time. That is why Sonicfire Pro 5 offers advanced editing and fine-tuning controls that allow you to reopen your SmartSound music directly from your Final Cut Pro timeline for quick and easy edits, from readjusting the lenght of the music track to adding a cymbal crash for an added effect.

Simply select “Open in Editor” when clicking on any SmartSound music track in your Final Cut Pro project and you’ll find yourself editing the music directly in Sonicfire Pro 5.

Having been working in the video business since 1988 I have amassed a great amount of knowledge of both the kit and production values over the last 30 years.
