I ran across this at:
Not something we composers might want, but useful for making soundtracks for home videos or such. Mac only. After "creating" a track - you can send it to GarageBand or other programs and tweak away. Sounds to be interesting - I have not listened to the demos yet. A little busy now.
Abaltat Muse™2.0 enables anyone, regardless of musical ability, to compose royalty-free, multi-part soundtracks that are perfectly timed and aligned to edited video. Now, Abaltat continues the evolution of video driven soundtrack creation with the release of Abaltat Muse™2.0. New features including dual composition methods, new bands with presets, easy to use User Interface and much more, make short work of composing temp to final soundtracks - and all 100% royalty-free.
The second stage is where the fun begins because Abaltat Muse™2.0 allows you to arrange the soundtrack using already familiar keyframe events and keyboard commands: change instruments; alter scales; fade parts in and out; stereo panning; add harmonies based on color; assign principle or secondary colors to control the melodic and bass parts; and more.
Abaltat has joined with two of the leaders in the audio sample production business, Native Instruments and Garritan Libraries, ensuring the highest standard of audio and authentic instrumentation with a natural live feel.
Finished compositions can be exported as .AIFF, .WAV, as a mixed track, individual tracks, as MIDI or as QuickTime.
