Use a secondary device for previewing before sending audio to your main output. Once configured, you can use the “Preview” option in the “Tile” menu to test your audio.
Need to stop all other playback, and start a new sound? Just hold Control as you trigger a tile.
To prevent accidental playback stoppage, the Escape key now requires a press-and-hold of 300 milliseconds to stop playback.
Per-tile fade controls have been replaced by the new editor’s fade options, which permit all manner of fades.
To avoid distortion when playing multiple tiles, Farrago now includes a digital limiter to keep levels in check.
Farrago’s sample sets are a great way to start using the app. We’ve included 20 fantastic new songs for all manner of moods, as well as updated sound effects.
Farrago now includes an editor built right in to each tile. After you add a sound, you can edit it by trimming it down and adding fades. Get exactly the sound you want, right within Farrago. Of course, if you need more powerful editing, we recommend our stand-alone audio editor Fission.
Use the helpful new search field to highlight matching tiles in the current set and show results from other sets as well.
To locate new sounds for your use, search the wonderful Freesound.org database right inside Farrago. Preview and download to your library for immediate use.
If you’ve got Apple’s music apps installed, Farrago can also offer up Apple Loops in its search results. Use them right in Farrago.
Create dynamically updating sets controlled by powerful rules. Organize based on titles, settings, play count, and more.
Lock sets to prevent accidental edits and changes. For even stronger protection in shared environments, set a password to prevent unauthorized changes.
Mark a tile as a Favorite, then find it in the automatically created “Favorites” smart set. Use Favorites in custom smart sets too.
Sets can now be popped opened in separate windows within Farrago, with keyboard shortcuts always applied to the front-most window.
On MacOS 12 (Monterey) and higher, Farrago now provides a slew of integrations in the Shortcuts app. Automate your usage of Farrago by setting volumes, fading between sounds, and controlling playback.
You can also now trigger any Shortcut in the Shortcuts app, right from Farrago. Trigger a Shortcut when a tile plays or stops, when a set is selected, or even on app launch.
You can now use Stream Deck hardware from Elgato to directly control Farrago. Easily trigger sound effects, switch sets, and control other audio elements with just a touch.
The new Open Sound Control (OSC) support offers substantial remote control capabilities. Control Farrago from an iPad or iPhone using apps like TouchOSC.
MIDI support in Farrago is now more refined, with additional dedicated mappings and better support for toggle buttons.
Add emoji to tile faces so you can locate your desired sounds at a glance.
Helpful level meters can now be found in the main window’s LCD and within each tile.
Farrago’s (Command-0) main window shortcut now works better. If the window is in the background, the shortcut pulls it forward. Otherwise, it simply toggles visibility.
It’s now possible to see many more tiles on screen. Farrago’s minimum size has also shrunk, to fit on even the smallest Mac displays.
Tiles now grow more intelligently, to better use screen space. Controls also grow when space is available and automatic sizing of tile titles has been made smarter.
VoiceOver users, we're ready for you! We work hard to ensure our apps are accessible to users with vision impairments, and Farrago 2 is no exception.

Farrago’s volume sliders have been improved, with the slider now unmuting when the thumb is moved.

Farrago now confirms the deletion of sets to prevent inadvertent data loss.
The Inspector now uses the tile’s color for highlights, rather than the default purple.
