    Solarseek

    Joshua,

    You can use www.solarseek.net, it's pretty much same as Soulseek but for Mac ;)

    Welcome.

    Another one is ssX or soulseex. It always worked well for me. I can't figure out how to install Nicotine, but I guess that's the slightly more advanced soulseek client for Mac,

    Edit: that download link didn't work. This one does: http://mac.wareseeker.com/free-ssx-soulseex/

    Ity's old software but it still works on my Intel Mac running Snow Leopard!

    The only way I have been able to use the original Soulseek is through Crossover 8 but its choppy when searching

    The only solution I've found that works 100% of the time without major bugs is running the official Soulseek client via Parallels.

    If you must run a Windows program, first try "Wine" or if you need it the comercial versin of Wine callled "crossover". Wine can't rn all Windows programs. So it that fails use VMware or the like to run Windows onthe Mac and then your software. It is very transparent and works well but does need lots of RAM
