There are also many smaller improvements to be found in Airfoil 5. These include:
A group is a collection of multiple speakers which appears as one in Airfoil's main window. Use a Group to send audio to multiple outputs with a single click. Create one group for all the speakers in your house, or divide your speakers into zones. Now you can send audio exactly where you want even faster.
Great for workplace or shared home setups, the new silence monitor allows Airfoil to automatically disconnect itself when it's streaming silence. The output device is then be freed up for others to use.
Custom Equalizer Presets
Adjust the equalizer to your liking, then save it in the Preset menu. Now you'll be able to access those exact settings any time you like.
If you regularly connect to a shared network which contains devices you don't control, you may wish to hide them entirely from Airfoil. Now you can do so, from the “Advanced Speaker Options” window.
Airfoil automatically keeps all outputs completely in sync. However, there may be rare situations where you wish to adjust this, such as when an output is connected to a receiver which adds its own latency. The new Sync sliders in the “Advanced Speaker Options” window make this possible.
Improved Instant On
Capture audio from already-running apps, as well as all System Audio. If you haven't looked at Airfoil for a while, you'll be thrilled to see that installation and updates to Instant On no longer require a restart.
We know many visually impaired users love Airfoil, and we've worked hard to make the new version fully accessible with Apple's VoiceOver.
