Batch Targets

A Batch Target points to a fixed destination folder or drive and is displayed as part of a list in the right sidebar's Targets tab. Targets can batch copy, move, decode, and process files and respond to Drag & Drop.

Each target accepts files and/or folders via Drag & Drop and copies or moves by default, but can also have one or more batch processing options attached to it. Alternatively, you can also send files to a target through the File List context menu.

Available from Resonic Pro 0.8.9.

Creating a new Batch Target

To create a new target, Drag & Drop a folder (or drive) into the Targets tab in the right sidebar or right click the folder.
You can toggle the right sidebar's visibility using the F6 key, or with a button in the status bar.

Copy or Move

The new target will default to Copy only, which simply copies any files and folders it receives to the intended destination folder or drive.

You can move files to the target by holding down the ⇧ Shift key during Drag & Drop.

Editing a Batch Target

Find the target in the list that you wish to edit and right-click it, or click the menu button.
The popup menu will reveal most of the target's features.

You can reorder targets by dragging and dropping them in the list.

Hovering over a target in the list will display additional information about its options.

Rename Target

Lets you change the display name of the target. This does not affect the destination.

Delete Target

Will remove the target, optionally deleting the destination folder it is pointing to.

Browse to Folder

Opens the destination folder in Resonic's browser.

Show Folder in Explorer

Opens the destination folder in Windows Explorer.

Existing Files

Lets you change what happens when files already exist in the destination folder.
Existing files can either be skipped, overwritten, or renamed automatically.

Double-Click Action

Lets you change what happens when you double-click the target in the list.

Sample Format Conversion

With any of the following options active the target will decode the input files it receives and save them as .wav after processing if their sample format differs. Format conversion can also be forced regardless of input file format.
Folder conversion is currently unsupported.

Sample Rate

Input files are resampled to a fixed sample rate, if needed:

  • 44.1 kHz
  • 48 kHz
  • 88.2 kHz
  • 96 kHz

Bit Depth

Input file bit depth is converted, if needed:

  • 8-bit (PCM)
  • 16-bit (PCM)
  • 24-bit (PCM)
  • 32-bit (PCM)
  • 32-bit (IEEE Float)

Channel Count

Input file channels are downmixed (or upmixed) to a fixed channel count:

  • 1 (Mono)
  • 2 (Stereo)

Reset conversion

Resets and disables any sample format conversion options, effectively returning the target to Copy only.

Interpolation Quality

Interpolation quality can be selected for each target, from Minimum to Maximum, ranging from 4-point to 256-point sinc interpolation respectively.

If you prefer speed over quality you could use Medium, but in general it is recommended to leave it on its default setting (Maximum).

If you prefer aliasing and crispness (e.g., for chip tunes) over quality, or you're a sound designer you could try the Minimum quality setting — it might just do what you want.

Offline Targets

If a target's destination or drive cannot be accessed at the moment it will appear Offline in the list and not accept any files or folders.

Feature Suggestions

Some of the suggested features for future versions of Resonic Pro could be:

  • AIFF output support
  • Additional sample rates
  • Additional output channel options
  • File formatting options (automatic rename)
  • Support for automatic encoding (e.g., create .flac files)
