Resonic Beta 0.9.2
Released December 12, 2018

This release is an accumulation of fixes, features, and performance improvements in both Resonic Pro and Player.
Features include reworked file list usability, an improved double-click mode, sticky selections, fast file list scrolling, browser folder history, per-device ASIO channel offsets (Pro), mono mix (Pro), and custom pause after tracks (Pro).
Improvements have been made around overall usability, high DPI support, playback buffering, and batch targets (Pro).
The Pro version is upgraded with the long-awaited bullet mode for browing very large amounts of audio files with the lowest possible application overhead, much improved metadata support (e.g., Soundminer), and a new meta panel which presents a lot of the information from the Resonic Meta Core.
Playback and Monitoring
The Mono Mix button completes the basic monitoring section (Dim, Mono, Mute).
When Mono Mix is active all audio channels are downmixed (summed) to mono, and the Stereo Crossfeed (headphones button) becomes inactive.
Trim volume control (gain) next to vertical zoom (peak scale) lets you amplify or attentuate the playing audio file in the range -48..+24 dBFS.
The waveform display is adjust accordingly, vertical zoom is disabled.
The A-B button now works as Select all (like CTRL+ALT+A) when playback is stopped and nothing is selected.
Resonic now plays back audio from some 3GPP mobile phone files (.3gp, .3g2, .3gpp, .3gp2) through Windows Media Foundation on Windows 7+.
Resonic now plays back audio from AMR/AMR-WB (Advanced Multi-Rate/Wideband) (.amr) audio files through Windows Media Foundation on Windows 10+.
The setting Pause after each track lets you set a fixed amount of time to wait after each track or file before auto-advancing to the next one.
See Menu | Playback.
The setting Ensure minimum track length lets you set the minimum duration for each track/file before auto-advancing to the next one.
When the track is shorter than the minimum Resonic will stop playback, wait, then continue.
When the track is longer than the minimum Resonic will just continue, and optionally use the Pause after each track setting to insert an additional delay.
With these settings you can adjust Resonic to your own working speed.
See Menu | Playback.
Bigger playback buffers at a little extra RAM cost for smoother playback (ASIO/WASAPI).
The new Bullet Mode puts Resonic into an operating state that optimizes many parts of the program including the UI for very fast browsing through very large amounts of files (several hundreds of thousands and more.)
In bullet mode only the most basic information is displayed, metadata scans and info bar are both disabled, and thus most file list columns will remain empty.
This mode can be toggled using a textual button on the right-hand side of the the status bar.
When enabled the button reads BULLET, otherwise DETAIL for full detail mode. Image
Greatly improved file listing performance.
Improved UI drawing performance.
Fixed several reported crash bugs. Thanks everyone!
Dynamic fast-scrolling for file list and browser.
Hold down CTRL and use WHEEL to jump across the file list in coarse but even steps, regardless of whether there are 500 files in the list, or 50000.
This allows you to quickly jump to a certain spot in the list without having to immediately go for the scrollbar thumb.
CTRL+ALT+SPACE will now shuffle the current list (Shuffle list).
It is now also possible to set up a global shortcut for this feature. (suggested: J. Prange)
Reminder: ALT+SPACE plays a random item from the current list.
Browser and file list popup menus dynamically hide commands that make no sense for the clicked item instead of being greyed out, e.g., if a folder cannot be bookmarked then Bookmark won't be shown.
Stop mode button (Stop after current) is no longer disabled while looping.
Updated shortcuts for mute/dim:
Press the PAUSE/BREAK key (next to SCROLL LOCK) to toggle mute.
Hold down the PAUSE/BREAK key to temporarily reduce volume (dim), release to restore volume.
Press ALT+PAUSE/BREAK to toggle permanent volume reduction (dim.)
It is now easier to access filter method/options in the filter menu popup.
A text file antivirus-readme.txt is now included with every build of Resonic.
It's in your own interest to have a look at it.
CTRL+F now always shows/focuses the file filter, unless its already focused, in which case its closed.
After recording you can click the status message to go to and play the new file.
Trying new unstable test builds is now much easier when you already have Resonic Pro installed on your system.
Simply download a new portable test build .zip, unpack it to a writable location (e.g., Desktop) and run Resonic.exe from there.
You will not have to enter your license every time.
Fixed --browse command line parameter.
User Interface
Minor preparations for DPI-aware UI rendering and multi-monitor improvements.
Fixed window position restore when using multiple monitors.
All list font size/spacing presets now also in Player.
Launch modes added to play/pause right click menu for quick toggling (Play immediately and Prepare and pause). Image
Note that these features are combinable with the Double-click mode (DCM) option.
Updated splash screens for both versions of Resonic.
The Resonic now running in background notification that is shown once per session when Resonic is minimized to tray (ALT+M, or automatically via option) has become unbearably annoying on Windows 10, so we zapped it.
Font size presets are generally a step bigger now (small was too small).
New taskbar quick control button for volume dimming (Windows 10.)
Error messages when trying to record/pitch while using a DirectSound output device, which both requires a WASAPI or ASIO device.
Resonic will now offer to open the whatsnew.txt once after updates.
The hotkeys dialog has been adjusted to fit the theme. Image
Added basic browser folder history functionality.
ALT+LEFT browses backwards, ALT+RIGHT browses forward in the folder history.
There is a folder button in the top left corner as well that keeps track of the folders you have visited in the current session. It is cleared when Resonic is closed.
To go one level up, to the parent folder, you can now press BACKSPACE (or ALT+UP).
Explorer-like Drag & Drop, i.e. copy for different drives, move for same drive.
Move and copy operations can be forced by holding down CTRL and SHIFT.
Fixed highlighted partially expanded folders not being shown in italic.
File List
Reworked selections and usability, and made things more compatible with Windows Explorer.
Introducing a focused item (green rectangle), in addition to the selected items (blue) and the active (playing) item (green.)
In single-click mode, which is the default behavior (i.e., a click plays a file) this new focused item is usually synchronized with the active item (i.e., playing file.)
In double-click mode (i.e., a click selects a file, a double-click plays a file) the new focused item can be used independently from the active (playing) item which greatly expands usability in some cases. Image
You can now quickly switch between single-click mode (SCM) and double-click mode (DCM) with a new status bar button in the bottom right.
Improved double-click mode (i.e., click selects a file, double-click plays a file).
A toggle option was added to the file list menu.
Introducing the sticky selections feature which allows you to play, select, and navigate the file list independently.
Selections become sticky, i.e., they are kept until you press ESC to clear them, or change the playlist (e.g., switch another folder), which allows you to select items multiple times using keyboard or mouse without losing the previous selections.
In single-click mode focus and active (playing) item are synchronized.
In double-click mode focus and active (playing) item are untied, which means you can navigate the list independently from the active item, and select independently as well. Image
New shortcut: INS (INSERT) lets you toggle an item's selection state.
This classic Norton Commander behavior is well known amongst users of FAR Manager, Total Commander, Windows Commander, WinNc, and similar software.
When you use the INS key to select items the file list will automatically go into sticky selections and you won't lose any of your selections until you switch folders or playlists.
To clear the selections manually press ESC.
The file list will no longer auto-scroll to the playing item on automatic track advance when you have one or more items selected.
Fixed a possible deadlock when the filter was active (reported: A. Frei).
Improved file list responsiveness, especially while metadata is being scanned.
Fixed occasional custom column order weirdnesses.
Fixed some shortcuts starting playback in Prepare and pause (cue ready) mode that should not start playback, which includes UP/DOWN, CTRL+UP/DOWN, ALT+SPACE.
On click this mode loads a track ahead and pauses, but does not start playback. (reported: A. Marcotte)
Fixed Shuffle list not resetting the order after folder changes.
The Shuffle list feature will now always try to keep the active item centered.
Fixed a bug where the main column could suddenly jump from File Name to Content Kind after using Restore defaults.
Fixed MENU/APPS key not opening the context menu for the focused file.
Audio I/O
A Channel offset can now be set for each individual ASIO output device.
This is particularly useful when your ASIO device has 8+ output channels (e.g., MADI) and you need to make sure that Resonic starts at a specific channel. Image
Audio extraction from MOD/MIDI files (i.e., music files rendered by Resonic) now takes into account the soundcard's output sampling frequency,
This fixes issues where decoded music files were having the wrong pitch.

All features

Ridiculously fast

Resonic makes extensive use of multi-core processing. Every important part is optimized for speed, which results in extremely fast browsing, seeking, and playback.


A couple of files, a few megabytes, low memory footprint, and tidy use of disk space.

No bloated runtime packages are required.

Purest sound

In order to achieve the purest sound quality there is absolutely nothing between decoded audio and sound output that might degrade quality, which is essential for both sound and sample previewing and audiophile audio playback.

Resonic's audio engine runs on 32-bit floating point data.

Clean interface

A major design goal is to always keep the graphical user interface clutter-free and user-friendly, without nested menus and dialogs, and without dumbing down the more powerful features.

Click less

Single-click interface

A single Left-Click navigates folders, plays files, seeks in audio, changes volume. No need to double-click just for the sake of it, but optionally available.

No-click scrolling

Move the mouse over controls and use the wheel to scroll lists, or to change volume. No need to click them first.

Embrace your keyboard

Once you know the basic shortcuts you'll see how fast and comfortable keyboard-supported operation of Resonic really is.

Resonic Pro

An advanced version of Resonic specifically aimed towards audio professionals is in the making.

For more information see A first look at Resonic Pro.

Play your folders instantly

Resonic plays all your music and sound files directly out of your existing folder structures.

You are not forced to use any kind of library system. Since music libraries usually rely on tags they can easily end up being a confusing mess, unless these tags are maintained properly.

Many users do actually prefer to organize their music in folder structures, most commonly on external drives.

Browse your samples

For audio professionals it is vital to have a powerful preview tool at hand. Sample CD/DVD structures can be tedious to browse through. Even more so are sample libraries and collections as they tend to become huge fast.

Resonic has its origins in this particular field of work and will certainly become an invaluable asset when it comes to your everyday work.

Also see Resonic Pro, which is in development.

Drag & drop

Drag & drop the playing file into Windows Explorer, or into most other applications that accept audio files,
which includes popular DAWs, audio editors, or video editing software.

Advanced file access

Resonic handles your files in a way that enables you to edit them with external programs, or even delete them in certain cases, while they are playing.


Resonic has full Unicode support for tags, files, folders, playlists, cue sheets, and interface translations, to make sure international letters are displayed properly.


Resonic was developed with full portability in mind:

Put the portable version on a thumb drive or USB disk, take it with you, and have it remember separate settings for the computers it is run on no configuration mix-ups.
