Sound Mill is an audio player, list organizer and automation manager that can transform your wildest ideas into sound design that works. There is no special hardware required, just a computer with any connected speakers. Sound Designers for Performing Arts Theater will appreciate the ability to organize the sound cues for each act of a production. The Automation Manager allows you, with one button click, to play multiple audio files in sequence or even overlapping to create precision sound scapes. Solo performers, such as magicians, comedians, and public speakers can remotely control sound cues with a pocket remote controller at distances up to 100+ feet from the computer.
Venues with multiple audio zones or rooms, can pipe different playlists to each zone simultaneously from one computer. These include venues such asmuseums, haunted mansions or simply a spooky Halloween walk-thru at your school or home . Large to small retail businesses, can create playlists of music programming and schedule it to start or stop at any time of day. You can also automate promotional announcements to interrupt the music programming, then resume once the announcement finishes. And since the audio files reside on your own hard-drive, there are NO monthly music subscriptions to purchase. Whether you are a professional sound designer or an aspiring amateur, Sound Mill offers the simplicity and flexibility you need.
How It Works

Then set Play Modifiers attributes for each file that control playback such as: number of times to repeat, positions within the file to start and stop playback, fade-in, fade-out, volume, left/right pan position and time delays.
