The first version of Farrago shipped in early 2018. It was built as a modern soundboard app for the Mac, with a focus on lightning-fast playback via the keyboard. That modernity included the backend, which was written in Apple’s new Swift language.
Farrago 1.1 shipped just three months after Farrago’s initial unveiling, and included a newly added Dark theme. This was built for use in darkened spaces like theaters, and actually pre-dated MacOS’s built-in Dark Mode, which would arrive later in the year with MacOS 10.14.
Farrago 1.2 introduced two major features, MIDI support and multi-tile editing. The MIDI control made it possible to play sounds with any physical MIDI device, an excellent upgrade and oft-requested feature. Multi-tile editing made it a snap to update things like tile color and playback settings across multiple tiles at once.
The List view was substantially modified in Farrago 1.5, and the Preferences window was updated to provide a “Match System” option for the appearance, now that MacOS had its own Dark mode. This collection also shows Farrago’s “Quick Tour”, first introduced in version 1.2.7 (October 1, 2019).
Farrago 2.0 was the first paid upgrade to our soundboard app, offering a wealth of new features and designs. Emoji art on tiles was one of the most obvious visual changes, but almost every element in the application was redrawn and often redesigned.
A search field was added, filtering current tiles and also searching the Freesound.org sound database as well as local Apple loops from GarageBand and Logic Pro. From the new built-in audio editor to set updates including lockable sets, smart sets, and secondary set windows, there was lots to see.
This update included the new Permissions window, to easily enable system permissions for the app.
