Audio Design Desk and Frame.io combine to ramp up efficiency in sound design
Pull video assets and comments from Frame.io straight into the post-production DAW.
AI-assisted post-production software Audio Design Desk (add.app) has announced the integration of Frame.io. The collaboration will allow users to speed up their workflow when creating cinematic audio and music for video.
Frame.io is the world’s leading video review and collaboration platform, allowing teams and colleagues to leave comments and suggestions on video projects. The integration with add.app means that sound designers can pull video assets and comments straight from Frame.io, then upload their results back to Frame.io to present to collaborators – all without ever leaving the timeline.
Audio Design Desk boasts a library of 2,500 free sounds – 25,000 for paying customers – to make use of, with AI-assisted creative tools that make applying music and sound effects a breeze. Coinciding with the Frame.io integration is an update to v1.3, dubbed Audio Design Desk Collaborate. This includes an optimised codebase that increases performance by up to 70 per cent, with a new AI-assisted importer. It also introduces perpetual licensing, where customers can now pay a one-time fee, with the option to upgrade at a discounted rate for full point upgrades.
“Audio Design Desk and Frame.io were built for one another because they were both invented to enhance and streamline your workflow,” comments Gabe Cowan, co-founder and CEO of Audio Design Desk. “Sound is half of what you see, and with add.app you can create sound for video at the speed of thought. But imagine if you could take this incredible creative tool and collaborate with people all around the world to get their ideas without ever leaving your timeline? This is now possible with the Frame.io integration. Using Frame.io’s Version Stacks, clients can now review and compare different sound and music cues against one another from virtually any online device, anywhere in the world”
Max Baehr, developer relations and partnerships at Frame.io says: “I love this integration. Audio Design Desk uses two key concepts to deliver its creative experience: real-time, frame-accurate, keyboard shortcuts for adding sound effects, and a robust AI backend. A user can search for their desired feel, come back with entire sound sets, test and review in Frame.io, set their markers, and then swap entire soundscapes on the fly. It’s an incredibly smooth integration that fits perfectly with Frame.io,”
