Sony Cinescore 1

Sony Cinescore 1 is a program designed to create professional soundtracks for video or audio, in a quick and simple manner. It is not an audio editor or a looping program. Here, you can define the style, length of time, etc., and Cinescore creates a melody spanning the given length of time.

Cinescore 1 uses the theme concept in creating music, and is capable of changing the style, mood and intensity over time. As the song is progressing, you can direct the program to change any of these aspects. The transition between intensity and mood remains smooth and nice, as long as you allow it.

There are twenty themes that range from Rock and Electronica to Polka and Klezmer. ‘The Monaco Diamond’ is a theme that allows variations and styles to be used in any scene, and it is flexible and easy too. Cinescore 1 provides an additional track to add in hits and audio transitions along with a large number of sound effects and musical effects.

Further, a facility to add one or two extra audio tracks, is preferable, to get some extra space to play. Lastly, a few of the themes, which are more orchestral, are not as accurate as a few other themes. Moods, intensity and tempos can be varied only after completion of the musical section, and on longer sections, more complications are possible.

The cost of Cinescore 1 is a mere 175 dollars. It may not have the type of music you require for any given project.
