Sorcerer Decoder Download

***This version is VIRUS FREE ***

One of my hobbies is decoding Digital RF transmissions from across the spectrum. Whie searching for a decoder for a particular mode (that is only commercially available so it seems) I came across this decoding software and decided to give it a try. Apparently it is abandonware or a part of a formally commercial software company that is no longer in business. So I'm not going to worry too much about copyright issues since there is no one to raise a stink anymore. (If this is your software and you want it removed from my site please send me a message with all the appropriate DMCA takedown information, and once verified it will be removed. Fake notices won't work folks, so don't bother.)

Here are the particulars from the site where I originally found it (Radioaficion Ham Radio )

SORCERER is a collection of decoders for modes found in the ELF-SHF range.  These work in tandem with proprietary intelligent bit parsers automatically identifying targets of interest.  (ie  –  country and specific service as well as identifying data link protocols, compression schemes, file formats, and cryptographic formats in use.

These feature:

    No proprietary hardware
    The most comprehensive collection of current, on-air modes (no defunct modes!)
    Superb demodulation, decoding and parsing of ELF-SHF modes
    Run multiple decoders simultaneously
    Unmatched decoder performance in weak/poor conditions
    Hundreds of parsers always available – run multiple per decoder
    High-speed constellation display
    Offline or Online Analysis
    Flexible variety of outputs to support cryptanalysis
    Continuous development – new modes added throughout the year
    Custom demodulators, decoders and parsers available upon request

Sorcerer offers hundreds of decoders for current, on-air modes ranging from ELF to SHF, terrestrial, air, naval and satellite modes . New modes are added on a monthly basis.

  1. Didn't find any virus or trojan in the .exe, but for some reason the application will open, but no window appears. I am using Win7

  2. In reading the install manual, it says it needs a USB dongle as part of the licensing. The web site for the original vendor is not longer valid. Any idea how to solve the dongle issue? My guess is that it will not run without a dongle.

  3. Hi,

    Very sorry to trouble you but very little seems available for further info on SORCERER V1.0.1

    I noticed your download site for Sorcerer, and gave it a go.

    When up and running I can get the spectrograph showing well, selecting an  appropriate mode with good known signal from SDR#/Funcube Pro+ , the yellow bandwidth markers come up, the selected mode appears in the bottom left corner of the screen, but no further screen appears as shown in your installation & running document. Is it possible that I' m missing some files, The total file for the app is 958Kb.

     

    Best regards

  4. Hey, looks very very handy and powerful. Are you planning adding support for Funcube dongle pro plus ?

  5. Hello expensively om, I installed(settled) your software which is great.
    I saw in the textbook(manual worker) installation that is needed a dongle but I how see making and in what I could get myself a license(Bachelor's degree)?

    With my thanking 73 F5STO

  6. Your Comments  Still trying to down-load the p0rogram!

  7. Hi,

    awfully sorry to report that sorc. v1.01 exe does not want to run on my Acer laptop Win7. Everytime I hit the exe it just "parks" the hat-icon on the task bar but the px itself does react. On my slow old Win XP it runs without problems. Would you have a guess on how to get things running!?

    Thank you in advance for your time.

  8. It's just a bug in the software.

    Simple fix:

    sorcerer and Win7

    Run-> RegEdt32
    Find this key –> HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Sorcerer
    Find the (4) values starting with "Main" == MainH, MainW, MainX, MainY
    Right-click on each of these and select Delete.
    Close RegEdt32
    Relaunch Sorcerer.
    Fixed.

     

  9. tak biza di download

  10. Do you know where I can find a user manual on the internet?

    Thanks!

  11. is somebody working on update for the sorcerer ? any new modes to be added ?

  12. Le décodeur SOCERER fonctionne très bien, mais il est loin de décoder tous les modes que vous listez sur votre site.

    Merci et à bientôt pour votre réponse.

    Eric.

     

     

  13. i have only a few modes in sorcerer. not all you listed on your web site.

    empty menu, i miss the most modes. any suggestion ?

  14. HELLO,How to buy sorcerer decoder?

  15. hi – i want to develep it – please send me source of sorcerer v1.0

  16. If anyone is indeed looking to develop this software, it would really help if the latest frequency data file were used in HFDL (I am told that such a version exists, but I haven’t any idea where you could find it, so please don’t ask…), and modes that haven’t been reported in years – like Coquelet and Piccolo – were dropped entirely

  17. works fine with my TS-2000

  18. best digital software about is multipsk.Has most modes known in it

  19. hi- this software which language in writted . whit java , c++,….?
    it is a open source ?
    where i can find source it . please

  20. Hi,
    May I buy the source code of sorcerer?
    Many Thanks!

  21. Have just been on Pirate Bay and downloaded Krypto500 V1.145. Looks like it’s where Sorcerer was born from. Been running this program with no problems and does not crash on Pactor 3, the release is July 2010 but works fine and nice to compare the two programs…

  22. About 5 or 6 years ago there was a program called “Centurion” and this proggy later became Sorcerer. Centurion was made by Monteria LLC in the US. I also have Sorcerer and it runs ok. I also got Centurion working (it receives a signal from my Perseus) but I wil not decode a strong signal like DDH47 on 147.3kHz.
    Regards, Pieter

  23. Oooops almost forgot……I also have the source code…..for those who are interessted…..
