NICE! I've been looking for a native SoundCloud app for the Mac. I've tried a few others that were too buggy or awkward.

P.S. For those that love Hype Machine, check out this Mac app: Plug Two.

@rrhoover so glad you like it!
@rrhoover did you ever try out Soundnode? I seem to remember liking it, but must have uninstalled it a while ago as it's no longer on my Macbook...!

@degoodmanwilson @rrhoover So the default shortcuts, (F7, F8, F9) do not work for me on my Mac. And I don't have iTunes, Spotify, or anything else opened, which I thought may be the issue. Any solutions? Bummed I just paid for this to get this functionality.

How does it compare to Cumulus?

One thing I've wanted out of Cumulus is the ability to see who reposted the track. Right now songs play in my feed without any context:

@evannite I noticed that it is made in Swift and not a wrapped website like Cumulus. Should have a smaller memory footprint.

@skoerbitz @evannite actually we are wrapping a very lightweight webpage with a WKWebView. Cumulus uses Electron + Angular, so I expect Soundbar's memory footprint to be very much smaller. Would be curious to see concrete numbers though.

@degoodmanwilson @evannite I saw that too when I actually looked at the memory footprint. I had 3 processes taking 205 MB of uncompressed memory. Don't have Cumulus installed to compare it though.
