SongFrame coming to OS X
Tanager AudioWorks has announced the release of SongFrame Songwriter's Toolkit. The application is currently only available for Windows XP/Vista but a Mac OS X version is expected to be released by the end of 2008. The aim of SongFrame is to provide help in developing interesting chord progressions, melodies, rhythm and overall song structure. SongFrame features an audio track that provides a fast way to capture ideas, and a Lyric track that organizes the songwriter's developed lyrics in a musical context. The user is able to listen to the son as it is being written, drag and drop new ideas, and create alternate versions of any section.
SongFrame is available (Windows-only) for $180 as a download or a packaged DVD-ROM, either from company's webstore or a variety of music equipment retailers worldwide.
