ProXL Sonic Explorer

ProXL has released version 1.3 of Sonic Explorer, an audio preview software for Windows.

ProXL SonicExplorer is a Windows Explorer with audio preview and prelistening. It works quite the same as the normal Windows Explorer, but has less buttons and/or menu’s to keep the program small, fast and intuitive. It has it’s own sample display so you can see immediately where all the audio action is. Click the display to play from that position.

Changes in Sonic Explorer v1.3

  • Better compatibility with Win7 / Vista.
  • Improved copy/paste behaviour.
  • Small bug fixes.

ProXL has also announced it has set free its VST notepad tool VstNotesXL, and ProbaGate, a probability driven VST gate effect.

You can now download VstNotesXL and ProbaGate from the product pages for free. Commercial products require good support. It has become simply too difficult for me to keep up with all Operating System changes, 64 bit support, support questions etc. So have fun with these free plugins!

ProXL ProbaGate 1.0 released

ProXL ProbaGate v1.0

ProbaGate is a VST trancegate effect, with an added probability value for each step. The patterns sound less static this way, because variations are introduced incidentally.

ProbaGate offers

  • 32 steps per pattern
  • each step has an associated probability value
  • steps can be bound, after which the first probability triggers all adjacent steps
  • 6 different operating speeds (resolutions)
  • 6 different notelengths
  • left and right channel can be set independently
  • selectable host synchronization

In a well layed out user interface, you can set 32 steps for each pattern, with probabilities for each step.

You can specify steps and probabilities for the left and right channel separately, if desired. However, when ‘link steps to left channel’ is checked, the right channel will follow the steps of the left channel. You can also link the right channel probabilities to the left channel.

All settings and controls are clearly explained in the information screen, by moving your mouse pointer over them.

Check the ProXL website for a demo and ProbaGate sound examples.
