Mireth Technology adds MP3 DVD and other advanced features to Music Man Version 1.7 released
Vancouver, Canada, September 29, 2005 -- Mireth Technology Corp. has released version 1.7 of Music Man, its easy to use digital music software that rips from CD, converts between formats, burns to CD, DVD or to USB Flash Drive Memory and plays music files, CDs and directly from USB Flash. Music Man was developed for Macintosh users with MP3 devices other than Apples iPod. Music Man runs on Mac OS X. Version 1.7 adds several advanced features including support for Unprotected MPEG-4 Audio (.M4A), support for iTunes Play Lists, burning to DVD, ID3 tag update using FreeDB, and automatic creation of winamp (.m3u) playlists.
"MP3 DVDs are replacing MP3 CDs in car audio because DVD provides an audio and a video solution in one," said Robert Wiebe, VP of Research and Development. "Music Man lets you store over 50 hours of music on one DVD. And if your MP3 DVD gets stolen, or melted in the heat, you can just burn another one. Why risk your iPod or MP3 player in your car when you can use media that's cheap and easy to replace?"
Music Man is the easy way to rip, convert, burn and play MP3, WMA, WAV, AAC, AIF, Audio CD and Ogg Vorbis on Mac OS X. Whether you want to rip, convert, burn or play music, Music Man is the digital music software for Mac OS X that does it all. Music Man offers you all the features you want in an easy to use music player that also includes ripper, converter and burner features, and the ease of use you've come to expect from Mireth Technology.
