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.

I'm Sorry Shape Layers! I love you!
I must confess… I was never a big fan of shape layers…  we just didn’t get along.  I was used to using masks but suddenly (around AE CS3) the same mask tool began creating Red vector shapes. At first, they seemed cool enough but after accidentally adding shape layers to my comps, instead of masks, I lashed […]

This effect is fully customization and can be used to create many cool FX! In this tutorial: Create a dripping water displacement map Simulate realistic camera DOF […]
Destruction Experiment!
What is this thing! I’ve basically combined a bunch of stuff into one experiment! I might have been inspired by the amazing planet explosions from The Force Awakens but wanted to see if I could get a cool version inside Element 3D. Few Notes on this experiment; I added smoke elements, shockwaves using CC Sphere, and even […]

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.

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.

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...

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.

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.

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.
