SANTA MONICA, CA — Universal Production Music (www.universalproductionmusic.com) and Adobe have been collaborating to build a specialized music application panel that’s designed specifically for Premiere Pro and Audition users. The tool enables users of the Adobe programs to access Universal Production Music’s entire catalog — without leaving the applications.
The new panel works with the current versions of Premiere Pro and Audition, which are both part of the Adobe Creative Cloud. The tool launches as a window inside the editing software, turning a portion of the editing workspace into a search tool with access to the entire Universal Production Music catalog. In it, users can browse playlists in their accounts, and search, play and download new music files. 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,” says 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,” adds Sue Skidmore, head of partner relations for video at Adobe. “Universal Production Music’s new panel is a wonderful addition to that toolkit, placing a virtually limitless selection of outstanding music at users’ fingertips.”
The panel is available for free download from the Adobe Marketplace and the Universal Production Music website.
