The best way to listen to music on your Mac.

"Sonora isn't just a barebones music player. It's thoughtful, elegant, and minimalistic."


"I think this is my new favorite music player for OS X."


"Sonora is a beautiful, elegant and a simple, yet featured-packed audio player app for your Mac. Unlike the boring, unchanged UI of iTunes, Sonora brings a much needed and refreshing approach to an audio-player's UI."

Beautiful Pixels

With Sonora, music is...

Beautiful. Your music should not look like a spreadsheet. Sonora's elegant interface cuts away the clutter and focuses on a visually immersive, album-based music browsing experience.

Fresh. You want to see music that you care about, not what comes first in the alphabet. Popular and New sorting options show you the music that matters.

Flexible. The centralized queue acts as the control center for all music playback. Drag and drop to rearrange, add, and remove songs from the queue and create a list that suits your mood.

Instant. Spend less time searching and more time listening. Start typing anywhere in the app or use a global search hotkey to bring up search results instantly. Quickly play (enter) and enqueue (command+enter) songs, albums, artists, and mixes without interrupting your workflow.

Diverse. Music comes in many different formats. Sonora doesn't discriminate. It supports MP3, MP4 (M4A), FLAC, OGG, WAV, AIFF, Musepack, WavPack, Monkey's Audio, Speex, True Audio, MOD, S3M, XM, and IT.

Personal. Use mixes to create simple playlists of songs or meaningful collections of music with unique names and artwork.

Social. Log into to take advantage of Sonora's built-in music scrobbling without an additional client. Transparent, automatic scrobbling gives your friends some insight into your music tastes and listening habits.

Custom. Sonora's Bowtie support offers you virtually unlimited possibilities for customizing and enhancing your desktop listening experience. Use a Bowlet as a playback controller and a beautiful now playing display. Additionally, AppleScript support gives you the flexibility to integrate Sonora with other apps on your Mac.

In Sync. Sonora syncs automatically with iTunes on startup to take the hassle out of managing your library. This allows you to use Sonora to listen to music while keeping iTunes to use the iTunes Store or manage your devices.
