SmartSound Sonicfire Pro FCPX Plug-in

Use Apple's Generator Function To Access SmartSound's Powerful Technology and Create Perfect Music Soundtracks In Your Final Cut Pro X Timeline

Use Apple’s Generator Function To Access SmartSound’s Powerful Technology and Create Perfect Music Soundtracks In Your Final Cut Pro X Timeline.

 

SmartSound’s new plug-in for Final Cut X represents a breakthrough in NLE music workflows. Taking advantage of Apple’s Generator technology, our new plugin starts where it should – inside an FCPX* project. From there, our smooth workflow has you creating placeholders for the exact timing that you need; click the Generate Music button and you go instantly to Sonicfire Pro. There you will find powerful features to customize music you choose from SmartSound’s curated library of thousands of tracks, and send your results directly back to FCPX with your new timings intact.

*Sonicfire Pro 6.0.2 or 5.8.7 and Final Cut Pro v10.1 or higher are required.

 

Simple to Use … Powerful Results

1. Drag a SmartSound Music Placeholder from the Generators section onto the FCPX timeline where you want to add music, and extend it to the desired length.

2. In the Inspector, click the “Generate Music” button to launch Sonicfire Pro as a plugin. Optionally, you can select a Library, name the new Event that will be created, name the audio clip, and add Keywords.

3. Select or Purchase the music you need inside Sonicfire Pro. The Length is automatically set so you can directly experience our unique music customization features. We always offer multiple Variations matching the desired length, and our multilayer tracks allow you to adjust the Mood to find the perfect instrument mix. When ready, click the “Send” button to import your customized soundtrack into FCPX as a new Event.

4. In Final Cut Pro X, drag the newly imported SmartSound Music Clip onto the existing SmartSound Music Placeholder and choose either “Replace” or “Replace and Add To Audition”.

Advanced XML Import for Full Sonicfire Pro Timeline Control

SmartSound’s new FCPX plug-in also includes the ability to import Final Cut Pro X XML project files so you can take advantage of Sonicfire Pro’s powerful timeline features. The SmartSound Placeholders and any markers from your FCPX project can be imported onto the Sonicfire Pro timeline to allow complete control over your soundtrack.

The new FCPX plugin for Sonicfire Pro requires Sonicfire Pro version 6.0.2 or 5.8.7 and Final Cut Pro 10.1 or higher and will not work with any previous version of Sonicfire Pro or Final Cut Pro X. SmartSound is thrilled to offer this breakthrough-approach to working with FCPX. We worked hard to develop new technology utilizing Apple’s Generator technology creating the best music workflow for any NLE available. As such the new FCPX plugin does not have an upgrade path from previous versions of SmartSound’s Final Cut plugin.
