BARD - My software to help organise your sample library
« on: February 02, 2012, 08:43 AM »
I'm very proud to launch my BARD software today!

BARD is a tool to organise your audio / sample library with minimal hassle. I made it in response to the posts about organising your library on the nuskoolbreaks forum. Music producers and other audio enthusiasts can use it to preview samples and instantly file them in a folder of choice. Everything in BARD has been crafted to help you get back in control over the thousands of sounds you have lying about in a variety of places.

Get BARD now and enjoy all the powerful features for less than the price of a night out. Or try out BARD Lite without limits and nags for free from http://getbard.com. Updates will be free.
   
Hey mate, glad to to help as this program is infinitely beneficial to me (and likely will be to many others) in getting my library under wraps finally.

Any and all feedback is welcome. :)

Well done! Very polished looking app. And one of the nicest websites I've ever seen.

Best wishes for success with your new creation. :Thmbsup:

Fixed an issue with the lite download link:

Does this mean that my Bard from May 25, 2011 now is a Bard Lite?

I think that is similar to my internal version 0.3.0.3. Ther have been 101 changes since then to the main program file alone.
I'd recommend to start using Bard Lite. (feel free to backup your copy first)

Had a quick look for you Curt:
New stuff since 0.3.0.3 in Bard Lite:
Faster startup and loading of file listing
Bard works with more audio files thanks to new playback engine
Ask for a destination folder on first use
Ask for source folder if none has been selected before.
Feedback Options from within app
Only display destinations if they exist
Improved prompting when file exists.
Clarified interface text
Store created files in Application Data/Roaming so that writing rights to program files is not needed.
support for mp2,mp1, ogg, wave files
try deleting twice before giving up.
Added Option to stop Reset playback and reload sound engine.
Allow mouse click to play sample even if row is already selected and focused
Hotkeys only active on current window
No longer needing to reload the gui when adding/removing destinations.
Only reload filelisting if rename took place when invoked renaming
commandline parameters can now be given in any order

Bug fixes since 0.3.0.3 in Bard Lite:
When no files are selected it's no longer possible to try to play the column header
Fix for broken hotkeys
Fix issue where sample not not be renamed if it was playing.
Fix problem where button appears in starting location of window
Fix to allow clicking on hotkeys again.
Fix where we would store the dimensionso of the active windows instead of BARD which would cause issues when a second instance of BARD quits the first and the dimensions of the window where BARD is started from is active ow explorer)
Fix: folders with - in them are now fully supported as button names.
Fix: no longer reloads folder when pressing cancel on context menu operations.
Fix: Rename no longer shows subfolder on files that are in subfolders of the current working directory.
Populate destinations before showing GUI initially for aesthetic reasons ( does not slow down bard )
spelling fix thanks cranioscopical
Misc bugfixes
