Goodbye Audion

If you’re a Macintosh user then you may have used Audion to listen to your audio CDs and create/play your MP3 files. Most of you probably use iTunes because it’s free with every Mac, is a great piece of software, and it works seamlessly with your iPod.

So how does a software company like Panic compete with Apple in the audio player market? They don’t. They can’t.

Today, Panic sent an email to anyone that purchased Audion in the past to say that the application is being retired. As a thank you for using Audion, Panic is offering a 20% discount on all of their software to former Audion users. Act fast, this deal expires Monday November 15, 2004.

Don’t miss The True Story of Audion detailing the history of Audion, including how it almost became iTunes.

Panic still makes several other software applications including a great FTP client called Transmit. I’ve been using Transmit for about 5 years now and can say that it is a solid piece of software.
