Version history / Release notes / Changelog

Resonic Beta 0.9.1
Released January 24, 2018

This release introduces a disk cache that makes already scanned metadata available much faster, and comes with much improved Drag & Drop features.
Metadata in DSD audio files (DSF/DFF) is fully supported (some parts in Pro only), new shortcuts were added, usability and integration has been improved, and lots of little things have been fixed.
Also, the currently playing path is now highlighted in the browser.
Playback and Monitoring
The UP and DOWN arrow keys will no longer play the next/previous file, but a random file, when the Random playback mode is enabled.
Note that you can also use ALT+SPACE anytime to play a random file.
Fixed MIDI file playback only producing silence when using integrated ResonicProGM sound bank. (reported: D. Coscarella)
Bigger playback buffers (at a little extra RAM cost) for smoother playback.
Fixed a problem where seeking failed in very long AAC files (~2.5 hours and above.) (reported: Slax)
Info bar now shows Float to indicate floating point WAVE/AIFF files (32/64-bit), and was also made more readable.
Introducing a high-performance metadata cache that runs transparently in the background.
Once new files have been discovered this feature greatly reduces disk accesses, making existing metadata available much faster.
The cache is limited to approximately 128 MB and cleans itself up every now and then.
When the file list is focused you can issue a complete metadata re-read for all listed files by using CTRL+F5.
You can now edit files in external programs while they are open in Resonic.
Most of the file operations in Resonic now operate lock-free, which means that files can be used and handled in parallel more easily.
Reduced memory usage in certain usage scenarios.
Shortcut to double (CTRL+SHIFT+D) and halve (CTRL+SHIFT+F) the selection length.
Fixed multiple Drag & Drops of the same waveform selection from Resonic into other applications that immediately lock the received files (e.g., Ableton Live), which failed silently. (reported: Mr. Bill)
You can now click the status bar message after recording to play the recording.
Game Audio: Improved Drag & Drop of audio files into Wwise (tested on 2017.1.4), which works around the programs file access issues (File already open in another process').
Added options for improved Drag & Drop usability. When dragging files out of Resonic, you can choose to bring the target window to the front or minimize Resonic.
When Resonic is maximized or in fullscreen mode, dragging files to any edge of the screen will minimize the window.
Playback will optionally be paused after successful drops.
Support the recently added Windows 10 feature Scroll inactive windows when I hover over them.
User Interface
Resonic is now more reliably brought to foreground when starting a second instance.
Input boxes are now scaled to screen width.
Fixed window position restore for nonstandard taskbar positions.
Fixed a problem that occured when the Windows taskbar was set to auto-hide.
Fixed tooltips disappearing in certain screen locations.
Resonic will now automatically rescan waveforms and metadata for files that you modify in external programs.
Setting temporary slices (ALT+CLICK) will no longer seek or start playback when the stream is paused or stopped.
You can now slice up your file while stopped and export slices without actually having to listen to the file, which is more consistent with SHIFT+SELECT behavior.
As a visual cue the currently playing (active) file's path is now highlighted in green.
An option to disable this feature is available.
Fixed pasting files in browser, which could lead to a crash.
Fixed an issue with ejecting CDs or DVDs.
Copy path to clipboard (folder context menu, or CTRL+SHIFT+C when browser focused) copies the currently selected folder's full path to the clipboard.
File List
Played files now appear dimmed until the file list changes or is is refreshed, as a helpful visual cue for improved workflow.
File list filter now handles UP and DOWN arrow properly in Random playback mode.
Fixed file selection issues after file delete.
Fixed file list contents not being updated properly in certain cases.
Added new Follow active item option. When disabled, the list will not scroll after automatic track changes. (suggested: J. Frankel)
Fixed content kind image not being drawn in some custom column configurations.
Fixed metadata not being read from files with the read-only attribute set.
File list clipboard export improved.
Export file list | Copy file paths (file context menu, or CTRL+SHIFT+C when file list focused) copies plain text unescaped paths.
Resonic Pro can also copy the path names (without file names), or just the file names. Image
File list clipboard export customization added to file context menu under Export file list | Customization, which is most useful to power users and developers.
Also added new command Copy customized file paths (CTRL+SHIFT+ALT+C).
Added new selection of backslashes or forward slashes as directory separator. Image
More explicit notifications when files are copied (green) and cut (yellow).
The same concept applies to browser folders.
Ten additional less common sample rates for batch targets (e.g., 8, 11.025, 32, 44.056, 192), accessible through the Sample Rate submenu.
Resonic Pro will now use 32-bit Float as default output format for slicing/extracting.
When dragging selections out or saving slices Resonic now correctly creates 32-bit Float output files from 32-bit Float input files when Same as input file is used as Bit Depth.
Previously, Resonic created 32-bit PCM output files by default, which pointed out a serious bug in Ableton Live where 32-bit PCM wave files are misinterpreted as loud noise. So dear Live users, do yourself a favor and stick to 32-bit Float. (reported: Mr. Bill)
When the file list is active CTRL+F5 now triggers a full reload, including all metadata.
Metadata support for Sony DSF high-resolution DSD audio files (.dsf), which are commonly used for consumer content.
The following information is now read by the Resonic meta core: playback duration, sample rate (mhz), channel count, sample count, bit depth, as well as most information in embedded ID3v2 tags.
Metadata support for Philips DSDIFF high-resolution DSD audio files (.dff), which are commonly used for professionally authored content.
The following information is now read by the Resonic meta core: playback duration, sample rate (mhz), channel count, sample count, comments, artist, title, software (creating machine), engineer (operator name), and in the Pro version: source form (sound source), file structure, file integrity checks.
Improved the Resonic meta core's ability to auto-correct RIFF WAVE files with broken headers, and continue to read the remaining metadata.
However, playback duration is intentionally not reported to easily spot problematic files.
Future Pro versions may report these errors differently.

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.
