SmartSound Sonicfire Pro 5 Workshop

with Jeff Foster

Video: Welcome

(music playing) Hi, I'm Jeff Foster. I've been a video and commercial motion graphics producer for nearly 20 years. And I've been using Smart Sound since the late 90s. And I've watched them continue to grow over the years. In this video workshop, I'll show you how to find just the right music soundtrack for your production, using Smart Sounds online library, and the customization capabilities of Quick Tracks. We'll explore their standalone software editor, Sonicfire Pro, with incredible features like timing control, and mood mapping, to control various instruments and song arrangements within multi-layer tracks.
