Maximum Metadata Coverage

We consider metadata coverage to be the most important quality of a good sample librarian, hence a lot of our attention goes into this part of the program. The Resonic meta core is extracting and reinterpreting deep metadata from files that is not visible to most other applications.

Resonic's ground-breaking Auto Tag system (to be introduced with the 1.0 release) and its advanced algorithms will round this off by predicting keywords based on the extracted metadata, processing millions of patterns and combinations on countless files within just a few milliseconds, building up a virtual keyword library automatically, which assists you in finding sounds fast that you didn't even know you had. A year of research and analysis and a lot of feedback from testers went into this particular feature and we're convinced that it'll be a driving force to your workflow.

Integrated File Management

Manage files and folders using Explorer-like management functions, tightly integrated with the operating system, directly from within Resonic.

From cutting, copying, pasting, recycling, and moving files, to advanced Drag & Drop inside Resonic, from Resonic into other applications, and from other applications into Resonic, in the most compatible way possible to cover as many third party applications as possible.

Available from Resonic Pro 0.9.

Pro Features

In the following sections we'll be showing you some of the more interesting features.

Exclusive Dark Theme

The Pro version comes with an additional dark theme as well as a light switch in the bottom left corner to toggle between light and dark.

Light Switch

Selections, Loops, Cues, Rulers

Draw, edit, move selections, loop in real-time, set slices, cues, and markers.
A major upgrade for the waveform visualization.

Silence Visualization

Quickly spot digitally silent parts, useful when setting cuts and selections.

Audio Extraction

Decode and extract waveform selections or slices to .wav, with on-the-fly conversion to your preferred sample rate, bit depth, and channel count.

Reads existing markers, cues, slices, and transients from ACID WAV, AIFF, REX and MIDI files and displays them in the waveform as snapping points.

Pitch Shifting

Real-time tape-style pitch-shifting in semitone and cent steps and using the mouse wheel.
Also affects the audio extraction features.

Drag & Drop Selections

Drag & Drop waveform selections — i.e., extract audio — directly into Resonic's file list or browser, Windows Explorer, and most other applications that accept audio files, including popular DAWs as well as audio and video editing software.

Batch Targets

Batch Targets point to fixed destination folders or drives and are displayed in a sidebar tab. They can copy/move/convert files and folders via Drag & Drop, but can also have one or more batch processing options attached to them.
