Today, we’re delighted to unveil a brand-new product! Our new soundboard app Farrago offers the best way to quickly play sound bites, audio effects, and music clips on your Mac. Podcasters can use Farrago to include musical accompaniment and sound effects during recording sessions, while theater techs can run the audio for live shows. Whether you want quick access to a library of sounds or you need to run through a defined list of audio, Farrago is here to assist!
We often use a wealth of text and images to show off a new product. This time, however, we thought we’d let Farrago introduce itself. Check out this quick one minute movie for a great overview of the app:
If you’ve used a soundboard app before, we think you’ll find Farrago familiar in its power and capabilities, yet refreshingly well-designed. Fast triggering via keyboard or mouse is coupled with robust playback options including fades, adjustable in/out points, and more. Meanwhile, the ability to customize unlimited sets of tile-based audio makes managing your sounds a breeze.
The end result is a powerful tool that’s still powerfully simple-to-use. Performers of all stripes can turn to Farrago for their on-demand audio playback needs.
A Great New Podcast Teammate
Farrago’s not just a skilled solo artist either. It also teams up splendidly with other tools in our software lineup. If you host a podcast, you can use Farrago alongside our audio routing tool Loopback to send all your audio to VoIP apps, such as Skype.
Loopback can combine audio from Farrago and your microphone, then get it to Skype
The setup for this is a breeze. Use Loopback to make a virtual device which grabs audio from both your physical microphone and Farrago. That virtual audio device, shown below as “LB: Mic + Farrago”, can then be set as the microphone source in Skype. Everyone on your call will then be able to hear the audio from both Farrago and your voice.
Of course, you can record this with our own Audio Hijack. With the above setup, setting it to record Skype will give you a file that includes everything you’d want: your voice, your remote caller’s voice, and Farrago’s audio.
With Farrago and our other tools, you can make your podcasts richer, with songs, interview clips, sound effects, and more. We hope Farrago can become a valued part of your podcast setup. Let us know how it goes!
