Air Whisper

1.5
24 November 2005

Skinnable MP3 music player.

Overview

Note: Air Whisper is no longer under development, and it is no longer available for sale.

Air Whisper enables a high-quality playback and easy browsing through your MP3 files. Instantly accessible, it runs on Mac OS X as well as Mac OS, being always on top of all other programs running. Moreover, nobody likes a player that eats memory and brakes for other tasks and skips. Air Whisper was designed to be free from such drawbacks.

SoftwariuM appears to have fallen into the same "skins" trap that other MP3 player developers have. Their prior MP3 product was an elegant control strip (which was worth paying for, BTW) that consumed fewer system resources than iTunes did. OS X supports both menu items and docklings, so they had an opportunity to do something similar now. A pity; I don't like the idea of yet another floating window cluttering up the UI.

Nice interface, although the lack of Finder integration is rather annoying. At least on my system (10.4.6), the only way to play files is to drag and drop, which I find pretty tedious compared to double clicking in Finder. If I try to change the association of an mp3 file, Air Whisper is greyed out as if it doesn't support that file type. Otherwise very nice little player.

Air Whisper is at version 1.5 and it's FREE! I agree with KARINA -- Air Whisper would be perfection if it could play AAC. Five stars anyway.

Awesome, almost exactly what I need (lack of aac support and inability to read id3 tags being my only complaints). I have been itching to find a decent alternative to iTunes on OS X (I'm not a fan of the iTunes library based system), it seems this is the closest I'll get to what I'm chasing for now. I sincerely hope the developer gives some thought to making further revisions of this application, it is so close to being what so many of us are aching for.

Great LITTLE program. I was convinced the first time I used it. I think the skins are good because it gives people alot of choice. I particularly find the circle skin useful for tuckin an entire mp3 player into the corner of the screen. Only things missing are an equaliser (though that may increase its CPU/RAM usage), and more playlist control.

Nice and clean. Does in fact seems to be free from annoying system intrusion clicks and pops (eg, iTunes). An Equalizer would make this a fully realized player! Slick.

Except for the lack of id3 functonality and the more flexible playlist functions, Air Whisper is unrivaled. The fact that it sits as a system daemon, always present, and that you can control it with key commands from anywhere within the system, and that while playing it only steals about 5% of your system resources, those things are worth everything to me. For those who seek to avoid windows cluttering up the GUI, air whisper can be made invisible by a simple key command. After all, you only need the key shortcuts to control it. Together with a few other products, all of them equally smoothly implemented and woven into the system [maxmenus, default folder, aquilacalendar etc], air whisper must be the best example of os x integration and programming. Oh, it exists as a dockling as well for those who would prefer less gui clutter.

Cluttering? Air Whipser has to be the smallest MP3 player ive seen. If its cluttering up your monitor, your running on too low of a resolution. Anyways, Air Whipser is easy to use but a little featureless, it doesnt support playlists, or has any real organisational features (it does, but its still kinda hard to find things if they arent named the exact same thing.), such as the library in iTunes. But Air Whisper is really small, and runs very well. Highly recommended for people who dont like the iTunes interface.
