Analog Factory

You get 2,000 classic synth sounds in one AU instrument. It may be a high-tech world, but if you're a musician, sometimes the occasion calls for low-tech sounds. But acquiring older synths is a pain in the wallet, not to mention that they take up a lot of space, they're difficult to program, and they require a lot of maintenance. Thank the music gods for Analog Factory.

Kid Pix Deluxe 3X 1.1.1

The interface is as fun to look at as the app is to use. For kids, we mean. Mac games for kids can be fun, entertaining, and even educational, but how about letting your wee one exercise the creative part of her developing brain? Get Kid Pix Deluxe 3X for your progeny, and you might be surprised at how prolific they become - not to mention the ball they'll have drawing, painting, and even animating, instead of just playing some games. 

Tunes Explorer

No more flying blind with iTunes. Until now, we haven't found an ideal remote for using iTunes on a Mac. Even the Apple Remote (also used with Apple's Front Row), like many iTunes remotes, is missing one major feature: You can't see the song that's playing unless you're close enough to your Mac's display to read the iTunes window. So when the Tunes Explorer arrived in our offices, it seemed like our prayers were answered - the Tunes Explorer has an LCD, albeit a tiny one.

SFX Machine Pro

Who needs a fancy interface when the app is so powerful? Audio effects are a blast to create, but it's not easy to find an affordable equivalent of a Swiss Army knife for doing just that. SFX Machine Pro is a one-stop shop for audio processing at a reasonable price - and it makes sweet sounds.
