Rogue Amoeba Software is pleased to finally unveil Airfoil (originally announced as Slipstream), the first and best way to send audio from any application directly to the AirPort Express. Everyone who owns one of Apple’s popular AirPort Express devices will be thrilled to be able to send audio from applications like RealPlayer, Windows Media Player, QuickTime, and Safari right to their remote speakers. In just seconds, Airfoil can send audio from almost any application on OS X directly to the AirPort Express.
Airfoil also enables optional local playback of audio being transmitted to the remote speakers. Due to latency inherent in the AirPort Express this option is off by default, but with a quick Preferences adjustment users can play audio locally as well as remotely. Airfoil can even be used to transmit iTunes audio which has been enhanced by audio plugins such as Octiv’s Volume Logic. Airfoil will be a boon to nearly every owner of an AirPort Express. Those who’ve hesitated to purchase one need wait no longer, because Airfoil opens the AirPort Express up to any and all audio. Give your audio wings, with Airfoil.
Airfoil is immediately available for a free test flight, and can be downloaded from http://www.rogueamoeba.com/airfoil/download.php. While unregistered, Airfoil will overlay noise on all transmissions longer than 10 minutes. Airfoil can be purchased at the Rogue Amoeba online store for an introductory price of just $20 during the month of March. The regular price for Airfoil will be $25.
