Here are some key features of "Airfoil":
Come Together, Right Now:
· Airfoil was built with one purpose in mind - enabling you to send any audio you want to Apple's AirPort Express device. Airfoil works in conjunction with your AirPort Express and any audio player. Use it to send audio to your AirPort Express from Realplayer, Windows Media Player, QuickTime Player, or even your web browser. With the ability to send almost any audio to your remote speakers, Airfoil and your AirPort Express make a great pair.
BenWin Speakers Tear The Roof Off:
· With Airfoil 2, it's now possible to send audio to multiple AirPort Express units simultaneously! Using Airfoil and additional AirPort Express units, you can "wire" your house for audio wirelessly for a fraction of the cost of more expensive audio players. Just plug in an AirPort Express, attach speakers (like the convenient USB-powered Benwin FX 2.0's seen to the left), and start playing. Best of all, Airfoil sends audio to each unit in sync, so you can crank the tunes up and rock the house down.
RadioShark Anything You Want, You Got It:
· The AirPort Express is great because it makes it easy to send iTunes audio to your stereo system. Airfoil is designed to enable you to send any audio out, not just iTunes, and with version 2 we've added many new audio sources. You can now send audio from AM/FM radios like Griffin's RadioShark. You can also pull audio directly from Dashboard widgets in OS X 10.4 and up, from audio devices such as a microphone, and even all System Audio at once using the optional SoundFlower component. With Airfoil 2, there really is no limit to the audio you can send to your AirPort Express.
Effects Thumb Ch-Ch-Ch-Changes:
· Airfoil 2 includes an audio effects window, to enable adjustment of audio being sent to the AirPort Express. Use the Volume slider to overdrive volume on quieter audio sources up to 200%, or adjust the balance. Best of all, you can use Rogue Amoeba's acclaimed 10-band equalizer on any audio source you like. Your ears never had it so good.
RadioShark You Can Go Your Own Way:
· Airfoil 2 also gives you the power to control the AirPort Express and Airfoil however you desire. With full AppleScript support, you can integrate other applications into Airfoil, or automate its uses however you like. With Airfoil, there's no limit to what you can do with your AirPort Express.
· AirPort Express hardware
