Aural Probe ~ Sample Library Tool


Aural Probe is a sample librarian tool for computer musicians / audio engineers. Automatically and non-destructively index your disorganised sample collection from a list of folders into categories (kick, snare, hihats etc.) based on folder/filename wildcard matches. Easily audition samples, load/save favourites, and drag-and-drop straight into your sequencer.

Features:

  • Categorize your huge sample collections (20GB+) without moving a single file
    Create categories based on file/folder keyword matches (eg. Kick category = “bd”, “kick”, “bassdrum”) or regular expressions
  • Quickly audition through samples with arrow keys or mouse
  • Filter samples by file type (WAV, AIFF, FLAC, MP3, WMA, OGG)
  • Full drag-and-drop support (simply drag a sample from Aural Probe into your sequencer/sampler, just like Windows Explorer)
  • Mark favorites, filter by favorites, load/save favorite lists
  • Automatic rescan and categorization of samples on changed categories or sample folder layout
  • See details about highlighted sample in status bar
  • ‘Always on top’ mode to make frequent dragging of samples into other windows easier
  • Right-click a sample for frequently used shortcuts (Explore, Copy, Copy Shortcut, Favorite, Delete)
  • 100% read-only – does not move/modify your samples, just indexes them
    Minimize to system tray
