FindSounds Palette (Win)
FindSounds Palette

FindSounds Palette is the ultimate software program for finding sounds! Its WebPalette feature provides greater access to sounds on the Web than FindSounds.com, and its MyPalette feature makes it easy to organize and search your own sound collection.
Search for audio files by name, description, category, genre, source, copyright, format, size, number of channels, resolution, sample rate, duration, key, and tempo. For any example sound, a sounds-like search can automatically find similar sounds on the Web and in your sound collection.

Audition sounds using the built-in audio player. Record your own sounds with the built-in audio recorder. Edit sounds using the built-in audio editor. The colorful Comparisonics waveform display helps you to "see" what you are editing.

Hollywood sound designers know well that useful and interesting sounds can be obtained by changing the speed of an audio recording. FindSounds Palette makes it easy to change speeds, and for each audio file in your collection, the sounds of 25 different speeds can be searched. This turns a collection of 10,000 audio files into a searchable database of 250,000 sounds!

You can also search audio files on the Web at multiple speeds, which gives you access to an enormous and growing collection of 1,000,000+ sounds!

FindSounds Palette Version 2.3 is currently available for Microsoft Windows and supports audio files in WAVE, AU, and AIFF uncompressed and mu-law compressed formats. This program is available in three editions:

Snapper 2 - features (Mac)
What's Snapper ?
When you select an audio file in the Mac Finder, Snapper immediately appears right beneath the current window, showing you the wave form.

Hit the space bar or double-click in the wave form to play. Or use auto-play to start playing the moment you select the file. Vari-speed is available too.

Drag, Drop and Convert
In the Snapper wave form you can select a part of the sound file and:
• drag it out, to create a new file.
• drag it to any sequencer or audio editor (new in version 2...)
• turn the selection into an mp3 file. (or ogg, mp4 flac)
• split stereo files into separate .L and .R files or vise versa
• convert to mp4 and attach it to an email in one go.
• export to AIFF, WAV, BWF, mp3, or m4a.

Which formats can it handle?
All of them.
Snapper opens over 50 sound file formats. That includes compressed files, split stereo, 192 kHz, 5.1 surround files, red book audio, cds and movies containing audio. It shows loops, markers, timestamps, regions, BWF annotations, even album covers. You name it, Snapper can handle it. For some formats you need to install external components, here's more on that.

RYAudio Sample Librarian (Win) - Manage your audio samples and sample CDs
Sample Librarian is an invaluable tool for managing and auditioning all of your audio samples and sample CDs to help you home in on just the sounds you want when you're in the middle of creating your next hit.

With Sample Librarian you no longer need to waste time navigating through deeply-nested folders of all your audio samples, which is a sure-fire way to lose your focus (and then the moment of inspiration has gone). Instead you can use a tool designed specifically for the purpose of managing and searching for samples. Once you’ve found the perfect sounds for your new song, simply drag-and-drop them directly into your DAW.

Previously, breaking off from composing to go digging through your sample collection to find that elusive sample you know is in there (somewhere) could seriously interrupt your creative flow. With Sample Librarian, using your sample collection now forms a key part of your music-making process.
