We are very pleased to announce that today was the official release of the next version of SampleSort.
This version is a great milestone for SampleSort, included in this update is a major upgrade of the audio engine providing a vast array of features and much needed extension of the audio capabilities of the application. It now supports all the major audio formats and has increased its performance.
Playback of audio files upto 32bit 192Khz and support for multichannel audio files in addition to the starndard mono/stereo files.
As the release of SampleSort v0.6.5 nears, we thought it was time we share with you some of the new functionality you will find in the new version.
Audio Engine – there is a completely new, zero latency, audio engine that provides playback of all the common files (WAV, WMA, OGG, MP3, FLAC, AIFF, CDA etc). SampleSort now supports samples upto 32Bit / 192Khz. This removes the need for Windows Media Player … yay!
Monophonic / Polyphonic – you can now audition samples in monophonic or polyphonic playback modes.
Global Audio Looping – You can now configure SampleSort to playback in loop mode.
Master Volume Control – Control the global volume using the volume control in the main user interface. This effects all active audio streams.
QuickSearch – Perform database searches without loading the database into memory. With this option enabled SampleSort gathers the required search data when the application starts up, freeing lots of memory for the more critical applications you will be using.
Database V2 – There is also a new database format that has massively reduced the phyiscal size of the database file. This also means that large databases load faster. SampleSort will automatically upgrade V1 databases to V2 format.
Drives – Configure SampleSort to watch for new removeable drives and CD/DVD discs being added to the system so that you can start browsing their contents and using them in Export jobs.
32/64Bit – The main application installer is now capable of installing 32 or 64 bit versions.
