Hi there,

Thanks for posting the news about our exciting partnership! We're thrilled to be working with AudioMicro to allow people to easily add music and sound effects to their presentations. It really increases presentation effectiveness - those that have audio are viewed 2-3 times longer than those without.

Thanks again for posting the news, and we hope to see you in SlideRocket!

Take care,
