Looking for a newer version?  contact support@soundminer.com and please provide your sales order number or ilok user id.

There are several resources available to the user: The v5/v5pro manual is built right into the programme's HELP menu. There you will find access to many resources. HD products are similarly equipped with resources in the HELP menu. The location for the HD/HD+ manual should be located in the original download email sent to you.  

When you have a problem, check the Troubleshooting pages first:

V4pro Troubleshooting

HD Troubleshooting

*PLS NOTE: Turn of Apple virtual desktop 'Spaces' as this will block any spotting features for Pro Tools(other applications are nto affected).

If on Apple Sierra(10.12 to 10.13) or higher you need v4.5pro v279+, HD/HD+ v283 or higher.  For systems beyond you will need an upgrade to either V5 or HD2.

What about Phone support?
Phone support is offered as part of our maintenance packages and requires a fee. Yearly support maintenance packages are available. Contact sales@soundminer.com. Server installations will be encouraged to adopt reasonable yearly maintenance fees that will include phone and WEB/VNC support. The fee will also include free software updates during the year. Individual license owners do not have to purchase support but will be required to pay for any phone support and or updates as needed. Email remains free and should get you the timely response we’re known for.

(please note that Version 3 products are no longer supported. To stay compatible with emerging features and systems you must upgrade to currently supported versions).
