Pro Scores FAQ

Until I get a chance to post the video demonstration, I thought I would answer a few questions first.

1. There are 500 audio tracks, how many are actual music tracks
As a music toolkit, Pro Scores includes over 50 full length musical tracks approximately 1-2 minutes with various styles. In addition to these tracks you also get access to hundreds of music design elements such as tension building fx and atmospherics. One example would be television dramas use intense backgrounds and ambiance to set the mood and Pro Scores offers a vast library of elements to choose from.

For those who have purchased production music, you know that a SINGLE track can cost anywhere from $25-$100 with premium stuff well into the hundreds of dollars and they don’t include layered versions. The music track for the Evolution Promo ran over $150 just for the specific use in a web advertisement… it’s not even royalty free.

2. Are the music tracks loops or fully orchestrated?

Pro Scores music tracks are NOT short loops but rather fully composed production music with the more complex tracks available with separated key tracks such as, Percussion, Orchestra and Choirs, etc. This allows users to customize and even extract tracks such as percussion and mix with other atmosphere elements but maintain the climactic builds like you hear at the end of movie trailers and promos. Of course the music tracks are just one part of this collection.

3. What program can I use Pro Scores with?

You can use Pro Scores with any audio application. This includes professional applications such as Logic and Cubase, but also video editing applications such as Premiere, Vegas and even Final Cut Pro. The DVD training focuses on the concepts of mixing and all the steps can be reproduced in almost any program. I personally demonstrate the audio portion in Vegas Video because the waveforms are very prominent and make it easy to see the music but I also show you how you can achieve the same functions in Premiere Pro as well as After Effects.

4. Will there be a full demo, what is the quality?

We will do our best to show off this product in several ways including a promo video scored only with audio elements from this collection. You can also access our audio guide with examples to illustrate the various categories of sounds and music. The sound quality is 24bits and uncompressed.

5. Your posts are always early in the morning are you a robot?

Yes. Living Tissue Over Metal Endoskeleton.

December 3rd, 2008 @ 2:21 pm
awesome. I'm buying first!
December 3rd, 2008 @ 2:26 pm

I knew you would be back but I didn’t expect it this soon. Thanks for all the details. It sounds like something I’ll want. Once I see the demo I think I’ll be ready to order (or pre order). I’ve yet to be disappointed with any of your products.

Guess I’ll have to buy second behind aidan.

Anyone edit sound in Soundbooth CS4 on the Mac. It came with my CS4 Master Collection but I haven’t used it yet.
December 3rd, 2008 @ 2:34 pm
LOL! then I'll buy it again after you, so I'll have two!

It's just so shiny, I have to have it.

Looks exciting. But in your last post you said:

"As we approach the release of Pro Scores, I wanted to share some of the great features before Tuesday."

What is the significance of Tuesday? The 9th is a Sunday, as I'm sure you know.
December 3rd, 2008 @ 2:53 pm
GREAT!!!!!!!!!!! i have been working on a movie and no one to do music....this is perfect than you sooooo much!!
December 3rd, 2008 @ 2:56 pm

Sounds cool. Can we expect the promo this week?
December 3rd, 2008 @ 3:08 pm
Can't wait, Andrew.

Soundbooth is great... for basics. It does have a pretty amazing sound removal tool, however. I was able to completely remove the sound of a truck backing up (you know, the beep beep) from a track that had dialogue through it using the simplest tools in SB. The truck was at the end of the alleyway we were filming in nestled between two buildings. It was at most 20 yards away. The final track sounds totally clean and didn't affect the overall quality of the dialogue. It was pretty fast as well...

Im sure there's better, but if you have it... use it.
December 3rd, 2008 @ 3:10 pm

December 3rd, 2008 @ 3:14 pm
"Yes. Living Tissue Over Metal Endoskeleton."

sounds like a cool tutorial, having living tissue ripped off to expose the metal endoskeleton.
December 3rd, 2008 @ 3:18 pm
Sense of humor :)..... You rock Andrew :):):)
Very interesting product & Good Post ;)
December 3rd, 2008 @ 3:40 pm
Nice product Andrew!

December 3rd, 2008 @ 4:14 pm
I always figured you were a robot. I'm online around the same times and figured I wasn't the only Living Tissue Over Metal Endoskeleton AE user.
December 3rd, 2008 @ 4:16 pm
very are on fire mr. robot, 4 updates in 2 days!
December 3rd, 2008 @ 4:25 pm
I wanted to make a comment on the price. All of your products are priced extremely affordable compared to what's out there.

I for one have no problem spending the money you people charge because of one project I did for a local TV show using Evolution when it came out, I made $500 for a 10 second graphic spot.

Evolution paid for itself FIVE times over on my first gig.

Keep it up...

December 3rd, 2008 @ 5:08 pm
Can't wait :D Your the one Andrew , many many tanks :D
December 3rd, 2008 @ 5:25 pm
yes tank you Andrew, tank your very much.

December 3rd, 2008 @ 7:25 pm
Will it work with Sound Track?
December 3rd, 2008 @ 7:38 pm
yeah Tommy, all of their products work together great!
December 3rd, 2008 @ 7:54 pm
It is a full sized DVD over 4 GBs, we recommend the DVD version but it will be available as a download.
December 3rd, 2008 @ 8:28 pm
Man I love this website. It keeps me going ;)
December 3rd, 2008 @ 9:16 pm
I could not help but to notice your price point of $95.95

Would you be willing to flat rate it at $95 even as I normally do not carry that much loose change?
December 3rd, 2008 @ 9:51 pm
What am I doing?... You can't negotiate with a robot! :)
I'll just pay $96 and you keep the change.
December 3rd, 2008 @ 10:33 pm guys still expecting for a change? its chirstmas time dude! Pro Score is one of the most valuable gifts that we can recieve this coming christmas from VCP! thanks andrew! Please send 1 shirt here in UAE! i'll give you a camel tied with ribbon!

December 4th, 2008 @ 6:42 am
Hallo Mr. Kramer.

Just a little more Question. What´s about using the tracks in commercial products like promo-video for web or dvd. Are there any licenses I have to pay to GEMA, AKM, SUISA

By the way: Thanks for your great products an tutorials!!!

Sounds a little like Sonicfire Pro's "mood-mapping" but at a WAY better price. Can't wait!
December 4th, 2008 @ 7:06 am
Just the fact that you're going to do the tutorial in Sony Vegas makes me want to buy this. Love Vegas. Love VideoCoPilot.
December 4th, 2008 @ 7:15 am

December 4th, 2008 @ 7:23 am
its will be and standalone version...or a plugin version...?
December 4th, 2008 @ 8:56 am
I think will help many people with no experience in playing an instrument or want to compose a kewl soundtrack.
It's kind of the same idea as with sony ericssons' MusicDJ.
December 4th, 2008 @ 9:48 am

I love this new product of yours. My question is, can we use this product to our productions publicly like in youtube? or perhaps in commercial?

I guess there is term of rights andrew should provide.
December 4th, 2008 @ 9:51 am

I forgot to mention. Once this release and I notice your big sale on your banner. That would be still active right? Since it says "all DVDs and Bundles" 25% off? :P
December 4th, 2008 @ 10:39 am
GREAT! a little bit expensive :( but anyway.. i'll buy it

December 4th, 2008 @ 1:54 pm
The tracks are all royalty free the only limitation is that you can't sell to other artists like on stock sites etc. The license agreement will be online Monday with all the info too.
December 4th, 2008 @ 2:24 pm
So if I wanted to buy it, how would I do that?

AWESOME AWESOME AWESOME! can't wait to see how it all fits together!
December 4th, 2008 @ 5:32 pm
Very cool! I can't wait. I hope that you make several series similar to this one. With so many moods to cover a multi disk series an an absolute must!

Since I just bought your entire dvd collection do I get any bonus points good for discounted rates on the new product? :)
December 4th, 2008 @ 7:09 pm
I have a question, who is designing these sound effects and music tracks? Is it you or are you buying it off of someone and reselling it?
December 4th, 2008 @ 8:08 pm
Andrew I am going insane!!! I can't wait for this! #1 on my Christmas list this year. Very cool and sounds extraordinary :D

Andrew - what file types will be used? AIFF? WAV? Anything else I can't recon right now?
December 13th, 2009 @ 7:22 pm
Is there anything other than Pro Scores I can use? I have the product, I just wanted a little bit more. There were some themes in my movie that didn't quite match to the selection of the songs.
February 8th, 2010 @ 6:54 pm
Am I allowed also to use the music for commercial or for my movie? Am I allowed to earn money? im not selling the tracks. I am just using them in my movie for theatres.
thanks and greetz from germany!
