With scores, anyone can create compelling music and atmospheric soundtracks for video and Adobe Flash. Choose from dozens of score templates in a wide variety of styles, and then customize compositions for specific projects. Automate parameters such as Intensity and Melody with keyframes, creating dynamic soundtracks that evolve over time.
Install and preview scores
Soundbooth installs two scores by default. To access additional scores, do the following:
In the Scores panel, click More Scores At Resource Central.
If you need to change the location for the two default scores, click Browse in the General section of the Preferences dialog box. Then move the Adobe Soundbooth Scores folder to the new location.
Score template (SBST) files determine score parts and parameters. You can preview these files in the Scores panel or Adobe Bridge.
To automatically play selected scores, click the Auto Play Toggle icon .
