[prMac.com] Portland, Oregon - Bitnotic is pleased to announce the release of Bitnotic chill 1.0 for Mac OS X. Chill is easy-to-use software that creates 100% computer-generated, user-adjustable ambient music. Though purely machine made, Chill's music is both relaxing and listenable.
Chill plays endless songs or, in chill Radio mode, an uninterrupted stream of unique tracks. Once played, songs can be saved in a variety of audio formats. Albums can be exported straight into iTunes to download to iPod or burn to CD. Each song is unique and royalty free, and can be used in any public space or project without licensing fees.
Anytime soothing music is required, Bitnotic chill can be put to work:
* Around the house for a relaxed atmosphere
* On-the-go for commute-time iPod nirvana
* As background music for presentations, slideshows, and digital videos
* In-store music for shops, cafes, yoga studios, etc.
* For music studio projects and live performances
Nick Vardalos, owner of Cafe Bido in Sydney, Australia uses chill as a royalty-free music alternative for his cafe and in music projects. He says, "It's simple enough that you can turn it on and let it go do its thing, but for the electro-geek in me it goes deeper. I can export the songs it creates as MIDI files into pro production software and build on them, replace instruments, edit tracks, collaborate with friends."
Created with musicians, as well as listeners, in mind, Bitnotic chill has a variety of features that allow songs to be used in the studio or live. Individual tracks can be saved in MIDI, WAV, and AIFF formats. Count-in, song key and tempo info, and MIDI output allow performers to collaborate with chill in real-time.
Scott Burgess, Bitnotic's principal, says, "Chill's music is influenced by Eno, Debussy, and musique concrète, with some New Age thrown in. The songs can be mellow or they can be evocative, but they are always music."
Bitnotic slowly works towards creating a world where music is composed by computers and sung by robots. Other Bitnotic products include VX-323 MIDI Voice Synthesizer for Macintosh and Decypher puzzle game for iPhone. An album of electronic pop songs featuring The VX-323 will be available on Bitnotic Music in Spring 2009. Copyright 2008 Bitnotic. All Rights Reserved.
