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.

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.

Our mate Matt Preston, the creative force behind Phaeleh, has been venturing into the depths of electronic, bass, and ambient music for a good part of his life now, and kept reinventing himself over the years. We're happy to say that he has been a Resonic Pro user for a while now, but to get an idea how Matt really works don't miss his studio feature in the September 2017 issue of the Future Music Magazine – out now. 🔥🔥🔥

Posted May 5, 2017

A Pro update with several new features is incoming on Tuesday. Stay tuned!

Inevitably coming to a copy of Resonic Pro near you very soon! Can you guess it? #teaseralert

If you're still using DirectSound as your output system in Resonic, try switching to WASAPI: to do this, click the 'DS' button in the bottom right corner and choose a WASAPI output device from the list. Note that we'll be focusing more on WASAPI from now on as it is the higher quality playback system.

Besides, there is a little bug in the .6 release where track advance is broken with DS devices. This will be fixed in the .7 update.

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.

This, on the forums:

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 :)

Posted December 14, 2016

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.

Posted December 9, 2016

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.

Posted November 17, 2016

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.

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.

Posted August 27, 2016

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!
