Splice has launched an updated version of its Splice Desktop application, allowing you to browse, preview, and download sounds from the Splice Sounds library straight from your Splice app.

The Splice Desktop application lets you sync projects between your computer and Splice, back up your saves and samples, share your projects, and download samples from Splice Sounds.

Previously you could only search previously downloaded sounds from the desktop app. To find new sounds you would have to log into the website. Now, you can see and download new samples right in the app.

To see it for yourself, start a search from the Sounds tab in your Splice desktop application. The first results you see are matching samples from your existing collection, as you’re accustomed to seeing. But as of today, right underneath, you’ll also see samples that match your search from our expansive library of over a million sounds. If you hadn’t already downloaded the sound you need, you can now browse, preview, and download sounds from the rest of the Splice Sounds library right from your desktop app.

That’s not all: you can now click on sample pack names in the app to open that pack — in the app. No more switching back and forth between your desktop app and the Splice website. You can even use filters, just as you can on the web, to further filter your results. If you don’t see something you like, you can refresh the list to see more samples.

The updated Splice Desktop app is now available for Windows and Mac.

New users can get 1 month free access to Splice by using promo code YT2021 when signing up for a plan.
