Nashville, TN (Vocus) June 19, 2010
Beamz Interactive, an interactive music products company that develops innovative musical instruments and music software, today announced a software bundling agreement with Sony Creative Software at the 2010 Summer NAMM Conference in Nashville (Booth #405). In addition to demonstrating the new Beamz Player at the show, the company is also launching the Beamz Studio Premium Bundle Edition, which combines full versions of Sony’s ACID Music Studio 8 (which includes 3,000 high-quality royalty-free loops), plus Sony’s Sound Forge Audio Studio 10 with Beamz Studio Software for $149.95. The Beamz Studio Premium Bundle Edition is available for purchase at http://www.thebeamz.com or in selected retail outlets beginning August 1, 2010. Beamz created this Studio/Sony Software bundle to provide consumers, amateur musicians and DJs a comprehensive solution to make innovative music creations triggered by breaking the laser beams on the Beamz Player hardware.
Beamz Studio software transforms the Beamz Player device into an interactive laser controller for creating music with dynamic possibilities. Users can import music clips and samples from their songs into the Beamz Studio software, break them down into their basic components, then assign and trigger components by breaking beams of light.
“Sony’s ACID Music Studio 8 and Sound Forge Audio Studio 10 applications combined with Beamz Studio software in the Beamz Studio Premium Bundle Edition offer consumers a comprehensive suite of tools to get started in the world of electronic music making,” said Beamz CEO Charlie Mollo. “We are delighted to partner with Sony Creative Software to provide these powerful music making and editing tools for our customers to create extraordinary music, triggered by light.”
Comprehensive studio solution suite
The Beamz Studio Premium Bundle Edition includes full versions of Sony’s ACID Music Studio and Sound Forge Audio Studio to create a comprehensive studio solution suite for original song creation, audio recording, MIDI production, studio-quality mixing, effects processing and audio mastering.
Beamz Studio Premium Bundle Edition offers users flexibility and gives them a diverse set of tools that expand with the users’ skill level. Users looking for even more advanced features can upgrade the bundled software to Professional versions directly from Sony Creative Software. ACID Music Studio and Sound Forge Audio Studio each retail for $69.95. However, when bundled with the Beamz Studio application, consumers receive a $140 value for an incremental $50. Beamz Studio Software is available now from http://www.thebeamz.com for $99.95. For the Beamz Professional model C6, which features 6 laser beams, you can purchase the Beamz Studio Premium Bundle Edition separately for $149.95, or bundled with the model C6 hardware for $349.95.
“Whether an amateur musician, music educator, adult or child, the Beamz brings true benefits in exploring music,” said Peter Erskine, Grammy-Award winning jazz artist. “The Beamz offers a very easy way for people to deconstruct and reconstruct compositions. I’ve enjoyed creating music with the Beamz and being a part of this phenomenon.”
