Take time and cost out of finding the right track

Automatically edits an existing original music track directly to a brief.

MXX Audition Pro enables anyone to edit music against video with intensity rises, fades, dropouts and climax points, load any track, and immediately listen to the edited track.

Audition Pro is the only adaptive auditioning software and it will re-define how to find and select music for video. By creating re-usable brief templates and having the software cut tracks to a video, Audition Pro takes much of the time and cost out of the music-to-video process.
