Announcing the release of Sonic Visualiser 1.0pre3, a pre-release for 
the soon forthcoming Sonic Visualiser 1.0.


Sonic Visualiser is an application for viewing and analysing the 
contents of music audio files.  It contains advanced waveform and 
spectrogram viewers, as well as editors for many sorts of audio 
annotations.  Besides visualisation, it can make and play selections 
based on the locations of automatically detected features, seamlessly 
loop playback of single or multiple noncontiguous regions, synthesise 
annotations for playback, and time-stretch playback while retaining 
display synchronisation.

Sonic Visualiser also makes use of the Vamp plugin API, for plugins that
extract descriptive or analytical data from audio.  Vamp is an easy to 
use plugin API with a comprehensive and well-commented SDK, and is now 
frozen for the Vamp 1.0 release.

Sonic Visualiser is Free Software distributed under the GNU General
Public License.  The 0.9 release is available now in source code form
or as binaries for Linux, OS/X, and Windows.
