Some words on Resonic and trust:

- Resonic is digitally signed three times: Setup (msi) is digitally signed, exe/dlls are digitally signed, and the exe also contains a Taggant certificate ( to be used by anti-virus/malware software.

- Starting with 0.8.5 we're using an updated high-trust digital signature by DigiCert.

- Resonic never transmits any of your personal information or information that could identify you over the internet, does not even open URLs in most cases without asking you. [Think about what your phone does right now…]

False positives in virus scanners are common these days, simply put, because many virus scanners suck and do not stick to the standards they have agreed on. So don't be unsettled because of the glorified AV horse dung you're using, presenting Resonic as malware (and that's only very few), better send the exe file in question to free online AV scanning services like VirusTotal or Jotti to get some real peace of mind.

Hope you all enjoyed your holidays and are starting the new year with fresh energies. While we're finalizing the next big Resonic update with the file list filter and reworked configuration system we've updated the Resonic Pro introduction page, just in case you're interested :)

We're experiencing download issues with our hoster. In case you cannot download Resonic please retry at – Thanks!
EDIT: The problems seem to have been resolved.

We've certainly come a long way since one of the first user Resonic interface drafts back then. From vision to reality :) The anniversary is coming up in a couple of days and we're working hard on getting the latest build, which will bring you a file list filter among other Pro goodness, stable and ready.

If you were unable to download Resonic recently, please retry. We have fixed an issue that might apply to you.

Resonic 0.8.1b is now available for download. Get it on !

This is an important bugfix release for both Player & Pro that deals with several visual glitches, soundcard selection, and occasional startup crashes of the 0.8 major release.

New and updated keyboard shortcuts can be found at

Enjoy + let others know :D

Resonic 0.8.0b is available for download. This is the update you've been waiting for. This is 0.8, mate! Get it on !

This major update brings several fixes and improvements, e.g. an issue that might have reduced mouse wheel functionality for multi-monitor users, as well as updated support for user-provided Soundfonts for MIDI playback and many more features.

WASAPI support is now stable enough to be the recommended output system, i.e. when you pick your soundcard in the preferences dialog make sure you try WASAPI first.
Use DirectSound (DS) as a last resort only, or when your soundcard requires it.

For the Pro version this release introduces experimental ASIO support.

The next release is taking longer than expected, but it's a big one this time. We decided to merge the September update with new features which will bump Resonic to version 0.8.
Feel free to try any of the pre-release builds and discuss with us in the 'Resonic Users' group.
Meanwhile, here's an often-requested feature for Resonic Pro taking shape: vertical zoom.

For the last two months we mostly spent time on fixing little things, adding a few big things like WASAPI, doing research, and preparing the Resonic code base for the big things to come. We had a nap, but now it's time to perform again.
How has your experience with the latest versions of Resonic Player and Pro been? Anything to report, good or bad? New ideas, bump suggestions? Do tell!

Posted July 16, 2016

We're working on WASAPI (exclusive/shared) (Player) ASIO (Pro) audio output support, additional themed controls, the configuration dialog, and the Pro database features.

Resonic Pro EA updates can now officially be downloaded on – however, you require a valid early access license to run it.

So we're trying something new here: a Resonic Player 0.7.1b update featuring the dark Pro user interface theme for the very first time is coming up next. We joined forces with our friends at MethLab Agency and MethLab Recordings & BNKR to bring you a limited edition. Watch their space, and ours :)

As you can clearly see we're not rushing ;) But we're adding the finishing touches to the first Pro release now. This will also be the first release that you can buy an early access license for, and seeing that we're basically running on zero funding you'll be able to actively support and accelerate development by buying one. A detailed list of features that are going to be in the first Pro is coming up next.

Resonic 0.8.5b is now available for download. Get it on !

This release is a milestone on the way to advanced features:
the file list filter lets you visually filter what's displayed in the file list by filename (artist, title, album, or any other available metadata in the Pro version.)
Resonic now has an often-requested double-click mode for the file list, improved drag & drop handling (does not restart files), and a fully reworked configuration system.
We've also let go of Windows XP support in favor of faster progress and features.

Today, 4 years ago, Resonic was first released. Thousands of work hours and a few hundred thousand lines of code later the project that started as a vision of an exceptionally fast and unique audio player and sample tool is growing up, and fast.

A lot is happening behind the scenes over here. But hey, here's a big one: Say hi to Resonic's brand spanking new file filter. We're pushing to finish up a first version so you can start using it. Best thing about it though, Pro users get to enjoy filtering all the other metadata fields in one go as well :) While this doesn't replace the big search feature it's one important milestone on the way there.

OptimFROG lossless audio files (.ofr/.ofs) – somewhat comparable to FLAC and WavPack – are now supported by both versions of Resonic. Florin, its creator, kindly gave us permission to use all encoders/decoders for future versions. We'll be looking into meta data and floating point audio support, too, in a later release.
More about it here:

In case Resonic 0.8 does not start properly for you, or has interface glitches, please re-download the official version, which was hotfixed. This affects a small fraction of systems and is caused by certain graphics card drivers.

Posted October 9, 2016

The Resonic website and its downloads will be offline for about six hours starting tonight at 2:00 CET/18:00 PST.
Stay tuned for the big 0.8 update release this week!

Benutzt du noch DirectSound mit Resonic auf Windows 7/8/10? Die neuesten Builds (ab 0.7.6) kommen bereits mit WASAPI-Unterstützung (im "Shared"-Modus) daher und sorgen für schnelleres Playback und Seeking. Die Soundqualität wird ebenfalls verbessert. Einfach die WASAPI-Version statt der DS-Version der Soundkarte im Preferences-Dialog (STRG-P) auswählen und mal ausprobieren.
Funktioniert zur Zeit nur mit 2-kanaligen Treibern.

Resonic 0.7.6b is now available for download. Get it on !

Resonic development is in full effect, with Player and Pro updates coming up.
Just a quick word about recent sudden slowdowns in application performance: Microsoft apparently messed something up with their last updates of Windows Defender and Security Essentials which effectively results in extremely slow Resonic startup times (10-30 seconds) as well as in-app performance (e.g. laggy when switching files).
They are hopefully becoming more aware of this issue as more and more applications are being affected by this every day resulting in massive complaints.
If you're affected as well you can fix this for now by adding an exclusion to your AV scanner.
Read more about this here:
UPDATE: Microsoft seems to have resolved the issues, starting with Defender/Security Essentials engine version 1.1.12805.0 which comes in form of a virus definitions update via Windows update. Make sure your AV scanner is up to date.

A quick update on Resonic Pro: We're still in the process of fine-tuning the first set of features, we're ironing out bugs, and we're polishing the user interface, to get the Pro out the door and into sales while meeting our high standards. We also make sure that the transition to frequent smaller Pro updates is as seamless as possible.
Here's some information on 'Early Access':
