The new version of SampleSort is about to be distributed to the beta testing team.  All looking good for a very stable release.  Recently reported issues are fixed and we’ll be waiting for the confirmation from our testers.  Will be able to make the release in the next few days.

Issues on Windows 7

There are some users currently experiencing problems running SampleSort.  The problem has been identified and we are currently working on a solution for an update to the application to take care of the issue.  If you are experiencing any problem this solution may prove useful, not just for SampleSort but for other issues you may be having.

It turns out that some installation of Microsoft Office install a “Phantom Drive” that seems to appear as “Q:” on users machines.  This is related to a tool called “Microsoft Office Click-to-Run 2010”.  You can read more about this particular issue here.

We will be releasing a new version of the application within the next few days.

0.6.8 & Current Issues

We are currently working very hard to get the release of v0.6.8 out the door as we discussed a few days ago.  This is a very high priority for us as there are issues with 0.6.6 (the currently available release) running on Windows 7.  A recent update from Microsoft has changed the way some automation features work and this has had an impact on SampleSort.  We have already implemented a fix for this which is included in the v0.6.8 release which will be available on this site hopefully later today!

SampleSort 0.6.8

Well, it’s been a long time coming but we’re just getting ready to send a new version to the beta testers.  This version includes a lot of recent feature requests that have been appearing in the JamSoft inbox.  keep watching this space for more information over the coming weeks.

SampleSort 0.6.7

We are very near to releasing the next version of SampleSort.  Should hit the web site within the next couple of days.  Included in this release are a few cosmetic changes and general maintenance updates.  In addition to this we have the following new features:

  • Text file name searches are now case switchable
  • Drive volume labels are now displayed in the browser view
  • Search values persisted between sessions
  • Window position restore is now safer when run on a dual monitor systems
  • Export view grid now also supports audio playback & drag and drop
  • All grids now re-trigger sample playback on left click

We will send out notifications to subscribed users as soon as this new version is released and available for download.  This new version of SampleSort is now packaged in an .msi installer instead of the older .exe setup file we used previously.  This is currently undergoing extensive testing.
