Airfoil 2.0 released
, a major update to its companion application for AirPort Express, enabling any audio--not just iTunes--to be sent to the device. Version 2 now allows users to send audio to multiple AirPort Express units simultaneously (and in sync) as well as send audio to password- protected speakers. In addition, it offers audio effects such as a 10-band equalizer to any transmitted audio. Furthermore, Airfoil v2 adds support for more sound sources: it can now send audio directly from Dashboard widgets, USB radios like the RadioShark, general audio devices like microphones, and even all System Audio, using the SoundFlower component. The company also revamped the interface and added full AppleScript support. It is a free update to the $25 software application.
