Sononym has announced version 1.1 of Sononym, a sample browser that offers a fresh perspective on how sounds can be explored and organized.

The update makes it possible to drag multiple files to another window or application, filter sounds by their note regardless of the octave, shuffling of search results, and more.

Sononym is a sample browser that organizes your sounds using machine learning, and allows you to explore how these sounds are related to one another. We refer to this as similarity search – a special, audio based search mode that even allows you to record sounds in realtime and get immediate feedback.
