SonoBat 30 builds upon its reliable and trusted classification performance to bring improved data extraction procedures, enhanced classification algorithms, and applied to a greatly expanded reference library from recordings collected in recent years.

Created and built by dedicated bat biologists that use it and insist on reliable, supportive, and trusted tools. SonoBat enables viewing recordings with extensive features to filter, adjust, emphasize, and interpret and compare bat call signals in high resolution, integrate with precision full-spectrum automated species analysis and classification, extraction and export of call parameter data. SonoBat has a sophisticated Vetting Table with customizable manual vetting tools, data exporting, and report generation. Classification packages provide selectable regional classifier packs optimized for all of North America. The SonoBat suite includes utilities, Data Wizard utilities to attribute files with metadata from most detector types, attribute files with NABat or BatAMP required metadata, scrub files to scrub out noise (non-bat) files, batch edit filenames, batch edit metadata notes, batch remove metadata, batch rename metadata fields, correct time and date offsets, smart parse longe duration recordings into files of individual bat pass events, and batch convert .wav files to .zc files. New with v30 comes the sensitive Buzz Detector utility and vetting tools to assess behavioral and ecological context of recording data. SonoBat also includes SonoBat LIVE, the most elegant, intuitive, and accurate recording interface for real-time viewing and classification of bat activity. It runs the uncompromised SonoBat full-spectrum analysis and classification algorithms, enables viewing results, attributes files with GUANO metadata, editing notes and filenames of individual files, adding metadata tags for sorting and display, and streamlines workflow by eliminating post-processing steps.

SonoBat License Policy

We issue licenses to people, rather than machines. 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. We consider it fair use for you to use your SonoBat installation among your machines, or for example to use it for viewing and vetting files on one machine while another one under your direction crunches a data set. But distinct installations used by distinct users with potential simultaneous operation warrants additional licenses. Please consider our software as you would an item of hardware that would require more than one unit to operate in more than one place at the same time for different users.

We consider it fair use for you to use your SonoBat installation among your machines, or for example to use it for viewing and vetting files on one machine while another one under your direction crunches a data set.

We thank you for supporting SonoBat with a license to support our ongoing research and development. And we like to believe that some of the social calls you record just might be the bats thanking you for the work you do.
