Audio browsing redefined
Soundtorch lets you browse through your audio collection extremely fast. Just drag your audio files onto the Soundtorch view ― all sounds are immediately arranged in a meaningful way and ready to be auditioned. Soundtorch is driven by the C.A.S.E. (Computer Aided Sound Exploration) engine, a sophisticated suite of algorithms that analyze and intelligently classify your audio collection.
With Soundtorch you can listen to sounds using a virtual torchlight ― all sounds illuminated by the light are played back simultaneously. This allows you to get an overview of literally thousands of sound files in a matter of mere minutes. As you zoom in or focus the light beam, you can still listen to one sound at a time.
Even though Soundtorch plays so many sounds at once, there's no cacophony. Your mind is powerful enough to easily spot the sound you like. Soundtorch further positions each playing sound on a surround system, or uses advanced surround virtualization when listening with headphones.
Your creativity resparked
Have you ever listened to a sound and felt that there was a similar one somewhere on your hard disk? And the sound you can't find would just work so much better right now? Well, Soundtorch also remembers all sounds that you ever listened to. Just select any sound on Soundtorch, and let the system suggest the most similar ones from your whole collection.
Soundtorch can also show you similarities between all sounds in the current view. Just take any sound file and magnetize it. All similar sounds will gravitate towards the magnet. And as you move the magnetized sound around, all similar sounds follow.
With Soundtorch, wasting hours stepping through long lists of sound finally belongs to the past. Soundtorch helps you to fully leverage your whole audio collection, as it is just so easy to find the exact sound you need.
