Added mirror - Cedric passed away earlier this year and his software is no longer hosted on his main server, it's down entirely. But great software like this should not die - we'll permanently host it. Thanks! Jamie Dresser, OWC

this program kills it! it's the perfect app for searching for artwork for you. Just listen to your music while you're connected to the internet and you're done!

THANK YOU!

I jumped the gun with my last comment. Application frequently closes down with iTunes 6, and, despite presets in preferences, it doesn't automatically share album artwork with iTunes 6. I wish Cedric was still around to troubleshoot.
R.I.P.

I was searching for something like that, free and stable. It works fine with iTunes 5.

I'm sad for this great developer. R.I.P. Cedric.

Hello Sofa users. I just discovered this fantastic piece of software. I never knew it was here.

My question is: where do you get Themes for Sofa? I googled and only came up with one theme. Any tips?

Many thanks.

Cedric Menard, the french author of this soft, has passed away on the 13th feb 2005. So I think there won't be any further development.
I regret this because Sofa is a very good app. Now, every new iTunes update may alter the stability of this soft. I use iTunes 6.0.4 on OS X 10.3.9 and Sofa quit unexpectedly with no apparent reason.
Otherwise, it is a very powerfull and fully customizable app.

Thanks 2 Cedric !

I've just come back to this page after using Sofa for a year to look for any updates as it has continued to serve me well all this time. I am very sorry to hear that Cedric has passed away. I emailed him a couple of times and always received generous support. I suggested he should be pricing Sofa but it was evidently not his style. Sofa remains my player of choice and now at the very least he lives on through my desktop.

Anybody looking at this page please help!!! I like those who have used sofa are indeed very sad to hear about the developers passing away; it is due to his passing that Sofa can no longer be downloaded. LETS NOT LET THIS PROGRAM DIE! If someone could please email me the program that would be greatly appreciated please email it to seth.rubenstein@gmail.com

Unfortunately, Cedric Menard, the developer of this app, passed away on February 17th (I just found out about this today). It's unclear why--but he will be missed. May he rest in peace.

From a post (http://www.macplus.net/forum/sutra78225.html), in French, by his sister:
Good evening
  I am Sandrine Menard: sister of Cedric Menard, creator of the software SOFA. He died 13 February (see depeche mac plus
  I am seeking people who had contact with my brother or who used his software, in order to collect their testimony to create a book to honor him....
  To know my brother offered his software to the whole world.
  His intent was from the first to bring his passion to life, and not just to [make money].
  He was a perfectionist!!!! and in his eyes, there was always something to do and to redo to make it better... he worked whole nights to be able to satisfy the users of his software....
  Thanks to all those who would like to respond.

Since it seems to be possible, once again, to grab track names from streaming radio stations (see Butler), Sofa ought to include this capability in its next version.

I also think that there should be an option that allows you to share with iTunes automatically, this would be cool to do.
