This important release fixes
performance issues and related bugs.
- Fixed issues that caused severe
visual glitches, effectively making the folder
browser unusable and the interface non-responsive to
most user input, especially when trying to change
folders, until playback is stopped. This problem
only occurred for users with lower-spec processors.
- Waveform painting is now up to a
100 times faster, depending on the waveform size and
requires much less processing power, and thus much
less battery power on laptops as well.
- Window position can now be saved
and restored. See Save window position
option in Menu | Interface.
- New default waveform, similar to
original one. You can use Alternative waveform in
Menu | Visualization to toggle the lower,
shaded half of the waveform.
- New option to disable the
translucent color overlays shading the played area
of the waveform in Menu | Visualization.
Enabling this option is mainly a design choice, but
it can also help reduce processor usage quite a bit,
depending on the waveform size. If you're in for
performance over visuals make sure you enable this.
Note that in any case the overlay is only drawn up
to a certain waveform height, and is not drawn for
very short sound files.
- Improved file switching speed.
- Clearing the waveform cache now
only takes a couple of moments. See Clear
waveform cache in Menu | Advanced.
- Waveform cache now uses a little
less harddisk space. Since the cache format has
changed Resonic will have to rescan your audio files
once you start playing them.
- New option use remaining time
added to sleep timer (Menu | Sleep Timer).
This will simply set and start the sleep timer using
the time left in the currently playing track.
- Several color theme changes once
Resonic is an ultra-fast audio and music player
/ directory player / sample browser for the Windows
operating system, built around a big waveform view.
Free for personal use. Company /
