Soundminer HD Plus: New Audio Player Functions

Soundminer HD Plus: New Audio Player Functions

New Zoom In- and Outpoints - One of the nice changes is the Waveform from the Soundminer V4.5 Pro product line. This has spring markers which allow you to quickly zoom in, drag to adjust your in/out points and release to zoom back out.

Hand-Tool Moved

Because the springs are up at the top of the waveform, that made the old way of transferring (move the mouse up to the upper 1/3 of the waveform and click, hold, then drag) not very usable! For now there is a new hand icon in the upper right of the waveform, use that to transfer the current sound to under your cursor where you can drag it to wherever you want in the target application.

You can use your mouse wheel to zoom in and out, and if you hold the SHIFT key down while using the wheel, you can adjust the vertical zoom of the waveform. This allows you to visually expand the vertical height of the waveform to see quiet details.

New Key Commands To Navigate the HD Plus Audio Player NEW

This new key commands were introduced to the revised HD Plus audio player:

  • [,] - [COMMA]: will start playback from the beginning of the clip
  • [;] - [SEMICOLON]: will zoom into the selection
  • ['] - [APOSTROPHE]: will reset the zoom to the furthest out point
  • [i] - while playing will mark an inpoint
  • [o] - while playing will mark an outpoint

If you are a Soundminer v4.5 Pro user and think that this would be nice features, than simply test it out! This functions come out from V4.5 Pro and have been taken over to HD Plus!
