MediaMonkey DACP Server

MediaMonkey control at your fingertips!

Don't be a slave to your PC anymore, rock out from anywhere in your house!

What is MonkeyTunes?

MonkeyTunes is a Digital Audio Control Protocol (DACP) Server for MediaMonkey to allow remote control of your music anywhere in your house. Digital Audio Control Protocol (DACP) is the protocol used by ITunes, except I don’t use ITunes, I use the wonderful MediaMonkey for my huge music collection of over 70,000 songs. I originally wrote my own iPhone client called iMonkey but it could never stand up to the features of Apple Remote for Itunes. MonkeyTunes now bridges the gap giving the full power and beauty of the Apple Remote with the power of MediaMonkey! Non-Apple users are not left out in the cold as compatible DACP client for Google Android, Windows Phone, and Nokia Symbian are also available.

The purpose of this program is simple: to allow control of your MediaMonkey from your mobile device with the touch of a finger.

Note: MonkeyTunes is commercial software that is available as a 20 use trial version before purchase. The product is fully usable and functional until your trial period expires. You can receive the full uncrippled version by using Paypal or Google Checkout to purchase from our Ordering page.
