Development Road Map

These are some of the planned and upcoming features of Resonic Player and Resonic Pro.
More features are being added as development is progressing.

We've added version number estimates for some features.

Resonic Player

Some of these features may become available to the free version of Resonic, but continued development of free features heavily relies on the level of support we receive from its users, which may be through donations or other forms of help.

Playlists

User-defined playlists.

Foreign Language Support

Translation and localization of the English user interface into other languages.

User Themes

We might open up the theming system to the general public, which allows for complex user interface color schemes and variations.

Resonic Pro

The following Resonic Pro features will become available as free updates to customers who own a valid Pro license, which of course includes Early Access licenses.

Extended Playlists

User-defined playlists, sample collections or sound bins, as well as pinned folders.

Sample Database

A sample library built into Resonic Pro, extensive metadata support, search features, and a world's first: the auto-tag system.

Database planned for 0.9.6 — 1.0; Search planned for 1.0

Auto Tags

Resonic's ground-breaking Auto Tag system (to be introduced with the 1.0 release) and its advanced algorithms will round this off by attempting to guess keywords based on the extracted metadata, trying millions of patterns and combinations on countless files within just a few seconds, 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.

If you're into sample management and you need to find sounds in a mess of a library really fast, this is for you.

Planned for 0.9.7 — 1.0

Metadata Editing

Editing of metadata, and printing it to (embedding it into) existing files, using a combination of in-place editing and file reconstruction (RIFF/IFF) to reduce metadata modification times to a minimum, especially when editing large audio files.

Planned for 0.9.5 — 1.0

Cue Saving

Saving of user markers, slices, cues, and export to other formats (e.g. xml).

Planned for 0.9.5 — 1.0

Batch Targets

A list of target folders for copy/move/processing in a sidebar that accepts files from the file list and from other applications via drag & drop.

Ideal for structuring files, or for copying them to often-used destinations like external drives.

(Planned for 0.9 — 0.9.2)

Bullet Mode

Browse samples, faster than fast.

A special browsing mode reduces internal processing to the bare minimum and stops most metadata like tags from being processed, which makes for the fastest possible sample browsing and previewing experience. This is especially useful when navigating around folders with tens and hundreds of thousands of files, even when scanning deep folder structures recursively.

(Planned for 0.9.1 — 0.9.3)

Instant Mapping

Map slices and other cues as well as files in a folder or playlist to keyboard keys, or to MIDI keyboard keys or drum pads, in order to audition them directly and musically.

MIDI input planned for 0.9.5 — 1.0

Advanced Monitoring

Mono Downmix, Center Adjust, L-R, M-S Matrix, in addition to the existing dim and crossfeed features.

Planned for 0.9.1 — 0.9.5

R128 Level Meter

Planned for 0.9.8 — 1.0

Improved Analyzers

Grid, hold, options.

Planned for 1.0

Waveform Zoom

Waveforms will be zoomable, up to a certain point.

However, since we don't want Resonic to mutate into an audio editor we'll always favor overall performance. We won't be providing 1:1 zoom with editor accuracy for the time being.

Planned for 1.0 or 1.0+
