Universal Production Music and Adobe Inc. have partnered to create a specialised music application panel designed specifically for Adobe Premiere Pro (for video editing) and Adobe Audition (for audio editing).
The new tool enables users of the Adobe programmes to access Universal Production Music’s entire catalogue, allowing them to search, play, download music, and view playlists without leaving Premiere Pro or Audition.
The tool launches as a window inside the editing software, turning a section of the editing workspace into a search tool with access to the entire Universal Production Music catalogue. It also integrates with Cue Sheet Helper, the library’s tool for automatically managing cue sheet reports.
“Our panel is the most robust music integration for Premiere Pro and the first ever for Audition,” said Patrick Appelgren, VP Continental Europe, Universal Production Music. “With deadlines in television, advertising, podcasts and other media growing ever tighter, editors need tools that can help them work faster, smarter and more intuitively. Now, they no longer need to leave their projects to grab and spot music to picture.”
“Creative professionals who use Adobe products expect a rich experience and to work as efficiently and intuitively as possible,” added Sue Skidmore, head of Adobe partner relations for video. “Universal Production Music’s new panel is a wonderful addition to that toolkit, placing a virtually limitless selection of outstanding music at users’ fingertips.”
“This innovative tool saves time, enables users to work more creatively with music, and is a great feature for client sessions as editors can build pre-selected playlists to try out with the video content,” continued Appelgren. “The panel also allows for greater creative experimentation. Editors no longer need to rely on the same old tracks from the bin because they are already loaded. Now, fresh tracks are at their fingertips.”
The Premiere Pro version has been used on a limited basis over the past year by clients and further refined and extended through customer feedback.
