Sync streaming music to Philips Hue light bulbs.

Overview

Ambify is the realtime music visualizer powered by Philips Hue.

Capture System Audio
Unlike the original app, Ambify for Mac is not an audio player but a powerful universal audio processor instead. When used in System Capture mode, Ambify can capture audio from any App on your Mac!

Philips Hue
Ambify makes use of Philips Hue connected bulbs. Easily find, connect, and setup your Hue bulbs in no time! Own some Living Colors lamps? Use them as well, no problem.

Realtime Light FX
Ambify makes use of some nifty algorithms to visualize music in real-time. Just play some tunes, relax and enjoy the show! Like to fiddle with settings? No problem, the FX section allows you tweak the show as you like.

AirPlay Receiving
Ambify for Mac also comes with full AirPlay receiving capabilities. Receive AirPlay audio from any iOS device, other Macs, and even PCs.

Classic Visualizer
Merging past and present technologies, Ambify for Mac also includes a classic visualizer. Stream music to your AppleTV, enjoy beautiful cover-art and simply control Ambify with your Apple Remote.

AirPlay Output
Ambify for Mac also supports AirPlay output enabling a wide range of additional possibilities. Receive audio from an iPhone and output to an AppleTV, or capture audio from your Mac and output to an AirPort Express.

The great thing about this Mac app is that you can AirPlay stream music from a source like Spotify to your Mac, and then AirPlay stream it from your Mac (using Ambify) to your sound system so the Hue lights will dance with streaming music. The iOS app can't do this -- it only takes music that you have localized on your iPhone. Two things I wish it did better: (1) Have more default settings with more colors and brightness changes. It would be nice to auto set the mood -- when a song gets quieter, the lights go dimmer. And 3-4 colors is too little by default. (2) It seems like there is a slight 1-second delay from when the beat actually hits and when the lighting effect happens. It would be great to pre-scan this a bit and push the light out just ahead of the beat, or more aligned with the beat.

It is not bad, when it works it gets the job done. But UI needs an update and bugs need to be sorted out.

Crashes when you try to raise the volume and locks up when you try to pair it with a HUE bridge. 10 minutes fighting with the trial was enough to save me $20.
