Fiture Talks Fitness Mirror Music and Product Features

Fiture is the leading interactive fitness mirror including gesture control, rep counting, and form  feedback using breakthrough Motion Engine™ technology for maximum efficiency and  precision. In our interview, Fiture’s Creative Music + Audio Manager Robert Rudkin shares a comprehensive overview of their products’ features, the kinds of music they offer and seek out, and what’s next at Fiture.

Can you give us a basic rundown of the different types of exercises in Fiture?

We have such a great variety of classes and an amazing cast of talented and knowledgeable  instructors! We offer boxing, HIIT, strength, Pilates, cardio sculpt, meditation, yoga, and dance  cardio. Members can filter our classes by experience level to find ones that fit their needs or  create their own customizable workouts. 

Fiture is chock-full of great features from the central features, like Motion Engine™  form feedback, down to the little things that can dramatically improve the  experience, like the ability to control the volume of the music vs the volume of the  instructor. Are there any particular features that you especially like to highlight?  

I love the fact that you have full control of the music and the instructor's voice. I'm Fiture's  biggest music fan, but sometimes I prefer to dial back the music and bring up the instructor to  about 30% music, 70% instructor. I love that each class has a completely fresh playlist expertly  curated by our music team with our instructors. With the music and instructor volumes locked in  and the Motion Engine™ providing responsive cues with its own unique sound design, it's a very immersive class environment. The speakers are AMAZING, so if you have forgiving neighbors, crank it up!! 

What genres of music get played the most played in Fiture?  

Our instructors and music team love blending genres, so in any given class you may hear a good  mix of modern pop, rock, EDM, house, tropical pop, reggaeton, and other Latin vibes.  

Is there a particular type of music that Fiture wants to add more of?

Right now, we're gearing up production on a new modality called Dance Cardio, and we'd love to  dive further into the Latin dance world, like salsa and tango. Other than that, we are always looking for great music to bring our classes to the next level.  

Have there been any learning experiences or turning points that made a meaningful  impact on the Fiture product?

It's behind the scenes, but we recently moved our entire company into a new studio where we can create classes and handle everything else Fiture has to offer under one roof. It's been great  harnessing all of the brainpower of our team and giving everyone a place to come in and be a  physical part of the Fiture magic. 

Any upcoming developments at Fiture that you would like to share?

We're really excited about our new product, Fiture Mini. It has all the great features of Fiture Core, like our Motion Engine™ technology and all of our classes, but in a more compact frame and at a really competitive price. I love that our hardware blends seamlessly into your home, and Fiture Mini brings it to the next level! We're hoping it brings people that were on the fence into the world of digital connected fitness.

How to Use Automation to Enhance the Musicality of Your Track

Use volume or eq automation to add depth to elements in your productions.

Adding dynamic, automated EQ or volume can add a ton to recordings or synthesized sound. 

With volume automation, you can create percussive, attack-heavy rhythms, or use long, smooth automations to create swells. This can be the performance in itself, but if you have a performance that has come out a bit monotone, or isn’t really popping the way you want it to, this kind of automation can take the motion of the performance to the next level. Just use the automation to boost on the emphasis, and listen to the difference. 

Same idea with EQ. The contrast of a filter being turned up or down in unison with the performance itself can add a whole new dimension to take your track to the next level.

For example, you can use drastic, quick automation over a steady held chord over a one or two bar phrase, then, loop, that phrase, to get a rich, interesting sound, from what was previously a static sound.

This can also enter into the territory of side chaining. By making dips in your tracks’ volume—except for one instrument sounding on its own during the dip—you can create a drastic impact and let a key element in a track shine without having to turn the volume up through the roof.

Of course you can use automation to bring in or out any effect over any period of time. Reverb, delay, and saturation are all great candidates, but volume and EQ are the two that can be used in rapid flux to create groove and motion.

Automation is an incredibly flexible, tool, and its applications are as expensive as the imagination of the user. Get comfortable with automation and enjoy the myriad of possibilities it brings to your productions.

Here’s What Our Clients Have to Say About YouTube Content ID from SourceAudio

How has SourceAudio’s YouTube Content ID suite impacted these businesses? Our clients are sharing their experiences in their own words.


“SourceAudio's YouTube Content ID has become an essential part of the income stream for my library. In the most recent quarter, I received over $5000 in Content ID income on JUST ONE SONG! I highly recommend SourceAudio and their YouTube Content ID platform to anyone looking for new and additional ways to monetize their catalog.”

– Hollywood Trax


“A big concern with our clients in social media is the fear of a campaign being pulled down over copyright issues. The seamless integration of the claiming process in SourceAudio allows us to grant permissions instantly and give our customers the security that everything will launch without any glitches.”

– HAUS Music+Sound


“The best thing I can say about SourceAudio YouTube Content ID is how little I truly have to think about it—all our new releases register automatically (except for any categories I’ve excluded in the settings panel), and earnings post to our account each quarter, simple as that. Plus, since the metadata in the reports perfectly matches the library data in our royalty software, it takes me all of 5 minutes to ingest detailed track earnings so our artists can see exactly which songs of theirs are getting played. Good stuff.”

– The Hit House


“Current Music has used SourceAudio for capturing the necessary data to efficiently monetize our catalog's usage on YouTube for years. We receive accurate reports quarterly, separated by catalog, which is a huge help paying our rights holders. The Content ID program has made it so easy, all we have to do is wait for the check – and we are very happy with the results.”
- Current Music


“I’ve been thrilled with the YouTube Content ID service provided by SourceAudio. Finally, I can manage all my tracks and monitor my content in real-time without waiting for the end of the month or longer. SourceAudio's tools have been reliable, easy to use, and powerful for my business.”

– San Music


Our powerful tools, our reliable customer service, and our unmatched ease of use make us the clear choice for industry professionals.
