Resonic Alpha
A capable new audio player

Resonic is a new audio player, easy to use yet with just enough features to be interesting.

The program supports a wide range of audio formats, for instance. The current list is MP3, MP2, MP1, OGG, M4A, MP4, AAC, MPC, MP+, OPUS, SPX; WMA, WMA Pro, WMA Lossless; WAV, AIFF, FLAC, APE, ALAC, WV, TTA; IT, XM, S3M, MTM and MOD.

Another core Resonic plus point is its Explorer-like interface. Just point the browser at your Music folder, click a track and it'll start playing, before working its way through the other tracks in that folder. (Although as with most audio players, you can set Resonic to shuffle its playing order, or repeat a particular track, if you prefer.)

As soon as the program begins playing any particular track, you'll see its waveform appear above the browser. And this can be useful if you want to jump to a section which stands out (the beginning of a quiet section, say) - just click that part of the waveform to hear it.

If you don't need the waveform, though, it can be replaced with a couple of alternative visualisations (the Linear Analyzer or Logarithmic Analyzer) in a click or two.

Resonic also has a built-in sleep timer which you can set to carry out some action after it's been playing for a defined period of time (log off, sleep, hibernate, power off, whatever it might be).

And not only does the program have keyboard shortcuts for most of these tasks, but it has one or two useful extra ones as well. If you need to talk to someone, say, no need to stop playback - just press and hold the space bar and it'll automatically drop the master volume to a minimum, bringing it back immediately on release.

Recent changes include:
* Overall performance improvements
+ Waveform scanning now about twice as fast, also for multi-channel files
+ Meta data listing fixed and now also several times faster, especially
   for files with incomplete tags (thx Martin)
+ Introducing the notification and status bar, which replaces most of the
   annoying message popups.
+ Customizable columns (right-click file list header).
   Column settings, sort column, and direction are all saved and restored.
+ Sort column and direction remembered when changing folders
+ Full multi-monitor support for any combination of screen sizes and arrangements
   for saving and restoring window position and size.
* Numerous color theme and graphics adjustments
+ File listing speed improved on Windows 8, especially for folders containing
   thousands of audio files

Verdict:

Resonic has no single killer feature, but there are some useful audio playing touches here, and we'll be interested to see how the program develops

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 (v11.0.6)

Free Full Commercial Software

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 is a compact, simple, but surprisingly feature-packed disc burning suite.

The program makes it easy to create simple data discs and audio CDs, for instance: just drag and drop your files onto the list area and you'll be burning the finished disc in a couple of clicks.

That's just the start, though. Burning Studio 2013 can also create data discs with customised, interactive multi-page menus, perfect if you'd like a more professional way to share and present the disc contents.

A built-in backup tool allows you to create backups which may be encrypted, compressed, and span several CDs, DVDs and Blu-rays.

And there are modules to create VCD or SVCD video projects; burn video DVDs or Blu-ray discs from prepared folders; create, browse or burn disc images (ISO, CUE/ BIN and Ashdisc formats are supported); copy discs, erase them, design and print disc covers, labels and booklets, and more.

The focus throughout is on ease of use, though, and so Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 remains very straightforward, whatever you're doing. Most disc projects are created via the same simple interface, and for the most part all you have to do is drag and drop the necessary files. But experts will find more advanced options are only a click away, and if you need to then you can set ISO and UDF version, enable Joliet, make a disc bootable and more.

Note the download here will take you to the Downloadcrew Software Store where you can download Burning Studio 2013.
