SonicWeb Internet Radio Player

Open the Mac App Store to buy and download apps.
SonicWeb is an advanced multi radio recording internet radio player. It creates personalized, diversified personal radios from your favorite internet radio stations and allows you to listen to seamless mixes of songs from the radio stations you love.
Check out the demonstration video to see SonicWeb in action:
Choose from more than thousand free, hand selected, high quality radio stations. Turn on and record as many radio stations simultaneously as you like, only limited by your bandwidth. SonicWeb splits the radio streams into tracks and puts them into a combined playlist that you can control just like a media player.
Timeshift internet radio, pause and resume playback at any time while SonicWeb continues to fill your playlist with songs from turned on radio stations. With several simultaneously turned on radio stations your playlist will quickly contain many unplayed songs. This enables you to skip songs you don't like without any skip limit as long as there are more songs available in your playlist.
Playlist management of personal radios is completely automatic. Old, already played songs are automatically removed while new songs are appended to the playlist. You can pin tracks to the playlist of your personal radio to keep them indefinitely. Alternatively you can create custom playlists from your favorite recorded tracks. Tracks in custom playlists are also kept indefinitely.
Audio playback is gapless with tracks from different internet radios crossfading into each other. SonicWeb dynamically adjusts the volume of loud and silent tracks so that you don't have to. These features enable uniform and unbroken audio playback just like with a regular radio station. And it also makes SonicWeb party ready!
SonicWeb features deep Mac OS X integration:
- Airplay support. Audio can be sent to the Computer itself or to one or more Airplay devices. This can be controlled directly from within SonicWeb. Airplay support is available if SonicWeb is running on OS X 10.8 or newer.
- Apple Remote support. Play / pause, skip forward, skip backward and volume up / down will work with SonicWeb.
- Background notifications. SonicWeb can show background notifications in Mountain Lion's Notification Center.
