Abaltat today announced the release of its new Abaltat Express, an entry-level algorithmic soundtrack composition tool.
The workflow for Abaltat Express is straightforward. The user simply drops a QuickTime file of the edited video sequence into Abaltat Express, clicks “Compose,” and selects parameters for composition. The soundtrack is composed in a matter of seconds, and the arrangement can be refined through adjustment of keyframes on the timeline. Once the project is complete, it may be exported as an .aiff, .wav, or MIDI file.
Abaltat Express comes bundled with three Abaltat Bands: Atmospheric One, R&B One, and Ensemble. For a limited period, Abaltat is also bundling these three bands and a further four bands—Minimalist One, Minimalist Two, Dub Reggae, and Percussion One—with both Abaltat Express and Abaltat Muse. A special upgrade price will be offered to users who wish to upgrade from Abaltat Express to Abaltat Muse.
“This software will wow anyone who works with video,” said Siun Ni Raghallaigh, managing director at Abaltat. “Abaltat Express offers an affordable entry into the world of software-aided soundtrack composition without having to be a musician.”
Abaltat Express is available for download or in hard copy for 350 euros per single-user license. A 14-day free trial is available to download.
