Sononym sample browser offers more inspiration & flow with v1.1 update


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.

Changes in Sononym v1.1

  • Drag and drop of multiple files.
  • Filter by notes across octaves.
  • Shuffle/randomize search results.
  • Manually override Classes & Categories.
  • Remove/delete files and folders.
  • “Scroll-locking” during similarity search.
  • Themed application window.
  • “Always On Top” mode.
  • Quotes in text-search.
  • Global shortcuts for audio seeking.
  • Modification time in search results.
  • Add to new or specific collection.
  • Copy multiple paths to clipboard.
  • Better support for Mac keyboards.
  • Ability to “Hard Refresh” libraries.
  • Other bugfixes and improvements.

Sononym is available for Windows, Mac and Linux, priced at 89 EUR. A free 30-day trial version is available for download.
