Swinsian is a music player that comes as an alternative to using Mac's iTunes for listening to your favorite songs. This program gives you access to an intuitive interface, is compatible with a wide variety of audio formats, and enables you to easily create and export playlists.

You can import music from your iTunes library or from your local directories. All of the loaded data will be added to Swinsian's library. Then, you can select songs for creating playlists, edit their correspondent metadata, and, of course, play your music.

A great aspect is that the program also brings you a built-in mini player which comes in handy if you want more desktop space for other running tools. Furthermore, you can define various hotkeys for immediately completing tasks in Swinsian.

But the best thing, at least from my point of view, is the tool's ability to monitor local directories for changes and automatically updating your library. To be more exact, after you select a local folder for monitoring, every time you will add or remove an audio file from the directory, Swinsian immediately updates the contents of its library accordingly.

The only aspect you need to consider before buying Swinsian for your Mac is that you can easily find cheaper solutions. However, not many audio players are as feature-rich as this program.

Briefly, Swinsian is a great audio player that gives you access to many useful advantages, works flawlessly, and is very simple to handle. So, you should give it a try if you're looking for a feature-rich audio player for your Mac.
