Yes, with Apple on the verge of releasing OS X 10.8 this year, Thumper will only support OSX 10.7 and up. I hope you can get upgraded and enjoy Thumper soon!


I'll probably hold out on 10.6 as long as it's viable. Lion and newer bring too many unsavoury changes. Where can I find a download of the last 10.6-compatible version of Thumper?

I'm sorry, but there isn't one anymore. I suggest you try Subair, or one of the other clients until you upgrade.

Thumper is caching songs just fine and I can add all those MP3s to iTunes unless they are Track 1 of an album. Everything opens with iTunes apart from something that is Track 1.

Is there any way around this?

Hrm, there might be a problem with how Thumper is actually caching the first track. Can you play it with any other player (maybe VLC?)? Shoot me an email at support@thumperapp.com and we'll get you fixed.

Howdy Thumper, you still actively developing on this bad boy? I really want to buy either this or Submariner, but both apps look to have died off on development. Before I spend that hard-earned cash-money, can you let us know if you're going to be at least going to make sure mountain lion compatibility is coming? thanks champ.

Yes, Thumper is still under development. I even have a 1.4.2 version almost ready to go. It may be ending it's end of life as product for me though.

The Mac App Store Sandboxing rules are going to force me to either 1) Remove the media key features in Thumper or 2)Start selling Thumper outside of the Mac App Store. I'm in the appeal process right now, but I don't know how long it will take or if it will be a fruitless effort.

Regardless, 1.4.2 will be released eventually with it's bug fixes and features some day.

Thumper 1.4.2
Feature: Media keys now block iTunes without needing to have Quicktime open
Feature: Control Thumper from the menu bar
Bugfix: All songs are now streamed from the server, fixing FLAC playback issues
Bugfix: Graphical bug in the Songs table
Bugfix: Artist names are now included in the album list for quick playlists
Bugfix: Change of bitrate selection in the preference pane survives application restarts
Bugfix: Album row height is now calculated based on content
Bugfix: Rating changes via an alternate click are displayed in the star indicator

Thanks to everyone who has supported Thumper so far.

If Thumper doesn't work anymore on 10.6.x, why does the App Store show it as compatible with "10.6 or later" in the "Requirements" area on the right hand side of the App description??? Please clarify. Thank you.
Subsonic 5.2.1 on 2009 Apple XServe w/ Yosemite Server 10.10.5; 96GB RAM. Lots of Music - High Rez, native DSD streaming, and otherwise.

I've removed the features that required 10.7 and higher, so it should now work on 10.6 again. I haven't tested Thumper on 10.6 in quite some time however, so there may be bugs and/or issues.

I plan on actively supporting the current OSX version (10.8 right now) and it's predecessor (10.7).

Okay, thanks. And as for requiring 64bit OS, is that still accurate, as the App Store says it is required. Please clarify. Thanks.

Yes, a 64-bit version of OSX is required.

I'd love to have an app instead of a webpage controlling my music, specifically for the use of shortcut keys. But if there's one thing holding me back from your app is the layout. To give you an idea, I have my iTunes set up usually like a list:

Since most of my time in front of my music library is sorting through thousands of songs, the simple text of song name artist etc. is all I need, but the minimalist approach I appreciate too. Is this offered in your app?

Thumper faithfuls:

2012 has been a great year. Thank you for all your support and feedback. 2013 will be a year of change, especially for Thumper.

Until then, please do enjoy Thumper at it's lower price in the App Store!

I wish you a happy ending to 2012, and look forward to what 2013 holds.

Thumper is now an open source project. It has been licensed under GPLv3, meaning it will remain free from here on out.

I've moved away from Subsonic (iTunes Match for those curious). Thumper was a fun project for scratching my own itch, but that is no longer the case. As a result I'm no longer the correct person to lead the project. This means I will not be contributing to Thumper any longer in support or development form. If you're interested in taking over the project (it is written using MacRuby), please do PM me.

I hope that Subsonic and Thumper continue to grow and develop.
