TechiSky’s Favor: iTunes is the best free Foobar for Mac (macOS Mojave, Sierra, El Capitan, Yosemite, Mavericks included)

TechiSky has tried many music players for Mac till he wrote this article and found there is always something missing in the players. Some free audio players crash on Mountain Lion and do not support OS X 10.9 Mavericks or OS X Yosemite 10.10, El Capitan 10.11, macOS 10.12 Sierra or Mojave. The price of commercial audio players for OS X is so high but do not work as expected. So after trying so many OS X audio players, TechiSky found iTunes is still TechiSky’s favor. iTunes may be crap on Windows but is really great on Mac. It’s true iTunes can only play Apple friendly audio formats like MP3, AAC, Apple Lossless ALAC, AIFF, but we can free convert FLAC, APE, CAF, etc to iTunes supported audio. Considering other audio players may mass your music, costs higher than their price lists, unbearable crashes, etc., it’s deserve to convert to use iTunes to manage your music library, especially you have a large music library.

Software to use for convert audio to iTunes supported formats on Mac OS X (Mojave/Sierra/El Capitan/Yosemite/Mavericks/Mountain Lion included)
