Intermission is a new audio app from those geniuses at Rogue Amoeba and they've done it again with another must-have.

Using Intermission is kind of like having TiVo for your streaming audio sources. It sits in the menu bar and gives you pause, rewind control over the audio, including a slider to quickly get back to something you might have missed while taking that phone call or whatever... Preferences let Intermission start at Login, let you set keyboard shortcuts, have Intermission automatically check for updates, etc.

I love my TiVo's and I immediately jumped on Intermission for the same reason - I hate it when I've just missed some news comment or part of a song and can't go back. Now with Intermission I can! Intermission doesn't record "Sound Effects" like the beeps and boops of alerts (think email) so you won't have to listen to them along with the audio you really want to repeat - it's a good thing! :)

There's a trial you can download to be sure it's for you and going to work with your computer's hardware/software and audio sources. I can report that it works fine with Radium v3 and SonicWeb v1 on my computer running 10.8.4. Oh, it also works with iTunes (of course). I would expect pretty good compatibility across the board since these are the people who make Audio Hijack Pro - they know their computer audio!

I wrote Rogue Amoeba with a couple of suggestions for possible improvements and received a nice reply thanking me and asking for some more details. They seemed quite willing to consider what I'd suggested.

All in all a pretty useful program from some nice folks!

Great review. I love this program. The keyboard shortcuts work beautifully using the option key and the 4 arrow keys, seems more natural than using the function keys. Intermission has made commercial streaming radio listenable again.
