Hollywood sound designers know well that useful and interesting sounds can be obtained by changing the playback speed of an audio recording. FindSounds Palette makes it easy to change speed, and for each audio file in your collection, the sounds of 25 different speeds may 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 is currently available for Microsoft Windows and supports audio files in WAVE, AU, and AIFF uncompressed and mu-law compressed formats.
