Mac OS X Music Players - alternatives to iTunes - Page 139

post #2071 of 3312

Agreed; I'm anxiously waiting for version 2, which supposedly will eliminate the need for iTunes, and also provide its own iPad/iPhone Remote style app.

Colour me suddenly interested. I detest iTunes with a passion!

Really looking forward to it as well myself! :)

Of course, you can use Audirvana in stand alone mode now, but version 2 will supposedly offer more in the way of library/organization features.  I use it in iTunes integrated mode now.  I like the look of iTunes, but enjoy bypassing it as the default music player.

I want true folder navigation and an app that works as a remote. Not much to ask.

Although I enjoy using A+, I haven't kept up with development news. Any idea when v.2 will hit the street?

Yes, in fact user interface of Audirvana Plus 2.0 will look very much like that of iTunes with main window showing album tittles/artworks, artist and song names. Both applications can be used separately without interference. Of course the only way to know final implementation is to wait for its launch in near future.
Really? I don't like the look of iTunes though... frown.gif

I don't use a database though. I like drag-n-drop files like the current Audirvana Plus does, which allows me to listen to certain tracks as I want without having to sort them manually in a database and make separate playlists for them.

If I want to listen to a specific playlist, I simply open the .m3u file saved on my desktop.

I too, use A+ in this way. But when enjoying 8 hour + listening sessions overnight... :rolleyes:

There is a thread over in Computer Audiophile  with some discussion of version 2.  Damien Plisset, the author of the program, occasionally posts there.  Back in early March, he cryptically mentioned that spring would come a bit late this year.  Here's a link:

There are some screen shots of what the interface might look like, also.

Even if I wanted to use a library, it'd be small and/or mostly MP3s. All my FLAC is on an external hard drive. I have way too much music to keep on any of my mac's internal hard drive.

:biggrin: Though I lurked head-fi for 7 years before registering mid-2010, I took interest at CA much earlier; have a diff username over there. Occasionally have exchanges with Damien but haven't followed CA of late (business).  That's for getting me up to date!

I too would like to know what's going on with A+ development. A version 2 is all well and good, but I've been having quite a few problems with 1.5.12. An update wouldn't be unappreciated!
