I can’t get that to work either, it doesn’t recognise the configuration folder (I assume I’m choosing the correct one, ~/.config/Sononym).
Same here: I replied in the other thread.
Sononym is so great that I actually started to google for “sononym” instead “synonym”
When using Sononym on Windows it shuts down Audio from the DAW.
(When Audio service is started by Sononym, the DAW shuts down its audio server.
When I start Sononym first and then the DAW it’s the other way around. The DAW will shutdown
Anybody knows why this happens? This is in Windows 10 only. (<-- Parallels installation with ASIO4All
on a Mac). On OSX no problems. But I need to use windows right now for several reasons.
I am not used to windows, so I do not know what’s going on.
Anyone any idea?
Hey tL, I missed out on your post.
Anybody knows why this happens?
Could you share anything about the sound card or driver that you’ve picked?
I mean, it sounds like the driver needs exclusive access - this is often the case with ASIO, but of course it might be something else.
Yeah, it’s an ASIO4All installation with (FL Studio) ASIO Driver selected,
as this is the only one that really works well.
Normal ASIO gives clicks&crackles.
and my MOTU PCI Audio Driver isn’t supported anymore under Win10.
In FL Studio’s Audio settings, under the drop down where you chose ASIO4ALL, there is a checkbox labeled something along the lines of auto-mute or auto-switch… something like that. Is that check box marked? Selecting or de-selecting that should allow Sononym to steal the audio server while you are running FL. Basically, if you minimize FL (or if playback is paused I think) it will let other software use the sound server.
Here another feature request: Being able to replay samples at different sample rate, for example having a caps-lock piano-keyboard to play the sample, with a display of the sample rate at key.
And another one: context menu terminal commands shortcuts and editor or config file, including an option to rescan/update the current dir after execution. Example usage: Using sox to convert a sample to another samplerate (e.g. 44.1->48kHz) with extreme quality. Or deleting a sample
Of course support for multiple selection at once.
Any news? It got a bit quiet here
Yes, there’s a new release around the corner - it includes a lot of the workflow improvements that have been suggested so far.
Actually, the release has been gestating for a while - all that’s really missing is support for multiple file drag’n’drop across all platforms. Windows support is missing for the application framework that we are using for the Sononym GUI (electron), but we now have some alternatives solutions that are looking pretty good
Great review @ beat, congrats.
When you guys need some beta testers, i’m willing to help
what font are you guys using in Sononym? if you don’t mind me asking
The standard. I didn’t know it can be changed.
oh, I meant the devs, sorry for the confusion
I want to know what one are they using to see if it fits my linux setup
Any news about new version? I love this tool.
We are using Source Sans Pro and Source Code Pro, part of a free font family created by Adobe:
The font is of course embedded into the application so you don’t need it to be installed.
It’s also possible to use the system font (whatever Chromium registers as “sans-serif”) from the preferences - we added this option as one of our testers was running an OS without anti-aliasing - which caused the Source Sans to look like crap.
Thanks, gorgeous font. Was using Noto Sans (Google) but this one caught my eye the minute I opened Sononym. Guess it was in part the hype
It was in my distro’s repo
