Today we release a new update the 2.1 (or number 10 since Breezer public availability), which is focused on a new useful feature: the preview history widget, that can be seen below.
Why a playback history?
Well, good question! As you can imagine it keeps track (by date and play count) of every sample you previewed. That because sometimes you could remember that one week ago, few days ago or even yesterday you hear an audio file which could be the right one, but now! So how to locate it? Browsing the entire audio library is not a solution, so we think about the problem and how to find a solution.
We found a solution, which is easy to use and understand: the preview history. It is basically a list which shows (in chronological order) the samples you played, and tells you how many times you played them.
Please remember that to limit the number of media stored, Breezer marks as previewed a media only if the total playback time is about 40% of the entire media.
The list can be grouped by date and supports full-text search, just type something in the search box and each occourence will be highlighted, instantly.
For each item in the list you can:
- Remove the entry.
- Start the playback.
- Locate the media on your system. Breezer take you to the folder which contains the sample.
The preview history widget is available only for Breezer 2013 Pro edition. Also remember that if you have any suggestion about Breezer and this new feature just drop us an email or use Breezer built-in feedback form!
This release fixed some bugs (most notably the spacepar play/stop keyboard shortcut which now works as expected) and improves some UI details.
So don't wait any more, go and download the new bits!
We take the opportunity to send our thanks to FileCluster which gived us a very positive review here. Thank you guys.
Next update will be available in April 2015.
We are proud to announce that Breezer 2013 Express is finally out!
When we first release Breezer to the public (was around June 2010) we realized that some users do not need the full range of commands and features that Breezer can offer, so we decided to release an "Express" edition, which is a simpler (and affordable) sample library manager that could help audio enthusiasts and home users to take the most out of their sample libraries.
Breezer Express 2013 lacks some features like folder pre-scan, multiple database support, filesystem operations, waveform annotations, loop export to DAW and more.
Two other notable features are somehow limited: Express edition workspace layout is locked to hybrid view and the maximum tag nesting depth is limited to three levels.
For a detailed list of the features, which are not available in Breezer Express, please check out this page.
Also take into account that some new features that we have on our radar (like preview history and file/folder rename) are accessible only to Professional users.
Pricing, avaibility and download
Express edition will be available for purchase tomorrow, 8th December, priced at 54.00 €
To get it all you have to do is go to our download page and download the universal installer which contains all the bits, 32/64 bits and Express/Pro bits. After the purchase the license file you'll receive will set Breezer with the appropriate license and feature-set.
Breezer Pro Update to 2.0.9
Since both Breezer Express and Professional share the same code base we take the opportunity to improve Breezer stability under some circumstances. Those fixes are available for Pro and Express users.
For a detailed list of the bugs fixed please read the full changelog here.
