The latest update for the Filmstro music-scoring app offers an extended library and a host of useful features for their standalone version.
If you find scoring music to your work a bit frustrating and can’t quite make those licensed music tracks fit your film, then Filmstro may be a good alternative. It is a music-scoring app that’s useful, intuitive and fun to use, and we have used it extensively in the past with some very nice results. Check out our review HERE!
The app has now received a major update for its standalone version that offers a few new additions to the interface to make the overall user experience a little bit more streamlined.
Filmstro Update – What’s New?
In addition to a general aesthetic update, the Filmstro library now houses over 60 albums of music ranging across a variety of genres. Of course, with an ever-expanding library, it can be quite easy to quite literally “lose track”. Filmstro have included a Collections feature to allow for easier navigation across their catalogue, as well as a Favourites feature to keep track of potential candidates.
A growing library also means a lot of downloadable content, which may be a problem for editors on the go who like to keep their laptops lean in terms of storage. A new feature also allows you to download individual albums or tracks instead of a whole new batch of music. Also new is having all those new tracks grouped together in one place to find them easily if you’re looking for something fresh to add to your video.
While Filmstro may seem a little limiting to some of the more demanding users, having the option to taylor the rise and fall in energy of a track to the pace of your video with a simple 3-slider interface is just a really useful tool for most situations, and really does bridge the gap between having a fixed music track or hiring a composer. Also, the app has become a lot more useful through its recent integration with Premiere Pro, doing away with the need to export a video edit to work with in the standalone version.
