SonoBat 3 will classify individual calls, sequences, and batches of files or directories. It will also batch process files to extract time-frequency and time-amplitude parameters from calls within sequences. View this presentation to learn the details about what SonoBat 3 does and how it does it, and watch this movie clip of SonoBat 3 in action.
Current version: SonoBat 4.2, includes SonoBatLIVE, Vetting tools, Summarizer, and classification likelihood calculations.

SonoBat 4p, batch processing for extracting parameters without classification
SonoBat 4p provides a universal version that will batch process files to extract time-frequency and time-amplitude parameters from calls within sequences. Preference settings enable control over call selection in sequences, or you can run the batch process in a way that prompts the user to accept or reject individual calls during the batch processing. It will also manually parameterize individually selected calls and write each selected call to a separate row in a spreadsheet. SonoBatch processing will output a spreadsheet of extracted call parameters using SonoBat intelligent call trending, some examples of which you can see here.
A single user license for Sonobat 3p with automated parameterization costs $680. Registered users of previous versions of SonoBat receive an upgrade discount equal to the original license cost of $320, thus $360.
One SonoBat license permits software for use on one machine at a time. This permits installation on more than one machine to enable use in different locations, for example a laptop in the field and a desktop for office use. But distinct installations used by distinct users with potential simultaneous operation warrants additional licenses. Please consider our software as you would your hardware in that it requires more than one unit to operate in more than one place at the same time.
