But in searching for some special music for a recent project I ran into a problem. I found two or three pieces that would work, except that they had no satisfying conclusion. They just end with a chord, and that's it. Music I had downloaded previously, as far as I saw, did have a good ending. So, that's something I had not noticed about SmartSound. Fortunately, I was able to find a song that was acceptable, but it took some out-of-the-box searching.
For what it's worth (not much), it's something to keep in mind.
if you have Smartsound software "SonicFire Pro" - (latest free upgrade version is 5.75 )- you could "slice-and-dice" each music segment into individual pieces & combine it together with other segments from same - (or even other) - melodies.
Also it is possible to add ANY sound or effect (like: bang, whoosh, etc...) to the main melody - on separate track.
The potential with SonicFire is interesting, but it does not work miracles. I haven't use it much; but when I did, it didn't give me what I wanted. Even if the song DOES have a conculsion, the time length selected in SonicFire affects whether you get that conculsion or not. So you have to experiment with the time. I do need to figure out how to slice and dice, as you say. Thanks for the tip on the upgrade.
that feature "Slide-&-Dice" is called: "Smart Razor" (it is pulldown in "Timeline" Menu).
You also need to see the parts of melody (called "Smart Blocks") to see in a "Bin" (pulldown in "View" menu).
.... "Bin" is usualy hidden on the bottom - you need to pull it out & up.
From these "Smart Blocks" you could construct almost new melody - with ending which will fit the need.
The advantage of Smartsound music & SonicFire Pro software is this flexibility and combination.
.... (I'm no selling it - just using a lot....)
