5-0 out of 5 stars Easy way to convert your cassette tapes to CD's
I have been using the Audio Cleaning Lab 2004 for about a month and I am very pleased with the product.I have converted over 30 tapes so far and have had no problems.The program is actually fun to work with.I like the way it automatically stops a recording when it detects a long pause.This is nice because I like to have it record when I am doing something else.

I am not a serious audiophile so I only use a few of the programs abilities.I use and like the wizard that cleans up the sound on old phonograph records.

I can't believe that this program sells for about $10.It is one of the very best pieces of software that I own.

Highly recommended!!

I do not have a clue as to what I am doing and don't have a clue as to how to get started.

Thank you very very much

4-0 out of 5 stars Excellent product
I purchased this product to capture my LP collection.I am extremely satisfied with the results.It has everything I need to make excellent captures.

I would give it 5 stars, but there are some shortcomings, all of which are annoying, not imparing.

1. No MP3 encoder included.For the price, it should include an MP3 encoder.This is not a big problem for me, since I capture to .WAV files for direct burning to a CD.Converting to MP3 and back to .WAV would just introduce more distortion, and when I want to go to .MP3 I just use the free Music Match Jukebox 8.2, which includes a MP3 encoder and has an easy batch file conversion menu.

2. The manual, and help file, are poor - almost like they were written in German and poorly translated :)

3. The noise reduction wizards come up with solutions I find objectionable - too much music discarded and not enough noise. This is minor, since I use the wizard, then tweek the settings for my own preferences.

BUT, for 39.95, I think it does an excellent job.

4-0 out of 5 stars cassette ---> CD
I use this with Panasonic RQ-A220 cassette/recorder to convert my taped records/cassettes to CD.So far, it has worked very well.

The only complaint I have (or perhaps don't know how to do) is when I name the tracks, then burn to CD, the track names do not show - just track 01, 02, etc.

NOTE:When using the Tool, Import Text audio tracks from CD feature of Click 'N Design Pro software that came with CD Stomper, the track names appeared - so the Audio Cleaning Lab 2004 software does write the track names to the CD.

I'm not an audiophile - I know I cannot fine tune the old recordings - so I let the software do it.

The main purpose of buying the software was to be able to convert cassettes to CD - and the software program does this very well.Compared to what I would have had to pay to repurchase the cassettes as CDs, along with about fifty that are no longer available - the program is excellent.

5-0 out of 5 stars The BEST Software to Convert LP's and Cassettes to Digital
I have tried several software programs to make digital copies of my old LP's and cassettes.Very frustrating, until I stumbled on this one.It is AWESOME and AMAZING!You can visually edit the wave files which is a feature that no one else had.That is very helpful for dropping in CD track markers, taking out live applause, etc.After you have converted all your old LP's and cassettes, there are still more fun things you can do with this software, like record streaming audio. ...

4-0 out of 5 stars Grest! Even for music-maker newbies.
MTV Music Maker is fantastic! it is the best music software program on the market (even better than acid and a lot of other expensive programs). With it you can use a large collection of fantastic previous made loops, or--once your more advanced--you can make loops of your own! you can add tons of funky effects and make an endless about of groovy tunes. . .

The only problem is the poor quality in the sounds, keep in mind the sound quality is still good, but just as long as you keep your song to a minimum on the number of sounds at one time, for example: Bass and Synth and some Percussion will go great, but all that plus vocals, extra synth and more advanced musical combinations will turn up a little distorted. But the sound quality is still good enough to impress your friends, or maybe to add to a video cd of your own. But, as long as you don't care about having super professional sounding music you'll love this program!

1-0 out of 5 stars cannot get software to run
I had written a previous review about being unable to install the software with any version of directx higher than version 7. As it turns out, their customer service rep told me how to get past the directx error that would prevent installation. After that however, the program would not run. Have been communicating with the customer rep for several days. According to the info on the jewelcase, ATI Rage Pro chipsets, (what I'm running), are supported. Still the program will not run. Customer service has tried to get it to run, and they did reply promptly, but at this time I can only give this program 1 star, as IMO, a well written program should not fail to run when it's requirements are met. This program did run at one time on my computer, the only two things that have changed on my machine is the Directx version, and the video,(turned off the integrated graphics and installed a video card). It is a good program, to bad it will no longer run.

5-0 out of 5 stars A musician speaks on digital music
If you like digital music: trance, techno, house music and like using those creative right brain juices?...go with this..it's EXTREMELY EASY!! As a musician my whole life working with audio files, this is the most user friendly I've ever seen. it's fun and almost addictive! i reccomend it to anyone.

4-0 out of 5 stars Fun & Easy!
I was looking for an easy way to mix music for fun, and when I found the MTV Music Generator at such a low price I decided to try it out. I don't regret it at all. Using the Music Generator is so much fun-- mostly because it's so intuitive and hassle-free. You can make Rock, Techno, House, Beat or Bass & Drums tracks, choosing & editing hundreds of bass lines, drum loops, melodies, vocals, percussion and sound effects (like scratching). I was just a little dissappointed that you can't make hip-hop tracks, but considering the price, I can't complain. Besides making your own songs you can also join a group online in "Music Jam" and mix interactively with people from all over the world, or create a 3D video to accompany your song. You can also convert your songs to MP3 or WAV format if you want to burn them onto a CD. Overall, the MTV Music Generator is a great buy, I'd recommend it to anyone.

3-0 out of 5 stars Ups and downs over the previous version of Pyro
As a regular Cakewalk software user (I use Sonar for my home recording projects) I always had high hopes I could integrate my music programs into one seamless package from Cakewalk.

That was why I initially bought Pyro 2003. I immediately preferred it over CD Creator. When the new verison of Pyro came out, I picked it up anticipating a newer and better program.

I was pleased to some extent. Here are the ups and down of Pyro 2004 compared to Pyro 2003.

UPS
Better on-screen interface; more info is packed on the screen
More streamlining in audio capture (rip, folder, and mic recording all accessible from the same sidebar menu)
Improved MP3 decoding (as always, Pyro gives you the most options for bit rates with MP3s)
More audio effects applied to sound files in the editing process.

DOWNS
Slower burning of audio discs for some reason (Pyro 2004 takes a long time to prepare a CD but then takes a considerably less amount of time burning tracks)

Difficulty when interfacing it with an older Creative Sound Card (I solved this problem by upgrading to Audigy 2, something I was going to do anyway)

THE SAME
Awesome realtime viewing of your waveform data, cuts, zooming and crossfades

The most reliable software I've found for burning discs without errors

Transfer of data to portables (though I don't have a portable so I haven't used this feature

PROBLEMS I HAD AND TIPS

Some plugins don't seem to automatically install correctly haven't learned how to fix this.

Don't use Pyro 2003 and 2004 on the same computer. One required DirectX 8 and one requires DirectX 9. I had problems trying to fully use both programs.

Be sure to have the updated drivers for your audio card and all Windows updates. My biggest problem was with MP3 encoding. It sometimes worked and didn't. At that time I had a sound card that was 3 years old with downloaded drivers. Upgrading to a newer card (Audigy 2 ZS Platinum) seems to have fixed this problem.

That's it. I hope this review helps some who are now or soon will be users of this program. Happy burning!

4-0 out of 5 stars Extra Features not found in other CD audio software
The Cakewalk Pyro 2004 offers the usual CD copying, mp3, WMA and wav ripping, data cd creation, playback, file organizing, ID3 tags, CDDB lookup. However it offers a boatload of useful features not found elsewhere. You can record line-in from the microphone, as well as hook up your stereo. Then clean up hiss, cracks and pops, as well as add Reverb, Delay, Chorus, & other effects with Plasma FXPad. You can work with a waveform, tweak the sound effects, graphically edit crossfades, volume, start & end times, and playback segments until you get it just right before burning to an audio CD. Additionally, you can encode entire mix playlist to one continuous MP3/WAV/WMA, or split audio files graphically into multiple tracks.

You can also selectively rip tracks from a CD by preselecting them before ripping. You can easily arrange playlists and then burn them into audio or mp3, wma CDs.

The best feature for me is the ability to record anything playing through your sound card including streaming audio. This is not fully explained in the documentation, but the instructions at their website explain how to set this up. You can either record live, or you can set a schedule timed to start at a particular time, for a particular duration, or end-time. This beats running the output from one computer's line-out into your line-in. You can convert this WAV file to MP3 or WMA, with a choice of quality for MP3 files.

The strongest feature set is the extensive audio editing, enhancement, cleanup, crossfades, and volume leveling controls. This is not found in the other comparable programs. The jukebox feature does not compare to other programs, and is basically consists of playback of playlists. The user interface is not too intuitive, so expect to spend some time with the documentation or to go to the website and newsgroup. For example, to convert audio format, you need to select the files, and then hit a "More" button at the top of the pane. There is no "right-mouse-click" as you might expect. However all in all, I'm highly satisfied with this program for the audio capabilities not found elsewhere.

1-0 out of 5 stars DOA
I bought this program three days ago, 7/12/2004. I just bought a brand new computer with XP, and a CDRW Drive, and a DVDRW drive came standard with the computer. PYRO 2004 keeps telling me my computer has no rewritable drives installed, so I go to the cakewalk website to download the new drivers list so it will recognize at least one of my drives, and still no sucess. The only way to get support for this product is through E-Mail. Three days and I'm still waiting. I will never buy a cakewalk product again. They use to be good with music programs.

1-0 out of 5 stars Do you want to be a beta tester?
I am running XP; I bought Pyro 2004 to replace Roxio because I liked the idea of an integrated package. However, there were problems from the start.
In "Record an Audio File" mode, Pyro unpredictably shut down when I hit stop play on an mp3, or when I tried to display an mp3 in the lower panel. In some cases it generated an error message.
I contacted product support; this is what they told me to do:

1. You'll need to uninstall Pyro 2004 or MediaWorks. Remove all
shortcuts also.

2. Click the Windows Start button and select Run. At the prompt type
REGEDIT and click OK.

3. Backup your Registry before making edits - you do this by clicking
the Registry menu, Export Registry File.

4. Now delete the following Registry keys
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Cakewalk Music
Software\"MediaWorks"
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Cakewalk Music
Software\"MediaWorks"

If you have "Pyro 2004" instead of "MediaWorks" delete that folder
instead.

5. To ensure that other programs are not interfering with the
operation of MW or Pyro, do the following.

* turn off auto-insert notification for all of your CD drives (click
Start, Settings, Control Panel, System, Device Manager)In XP, put a CD
in and select "Take No Action" and put a check where it says "Always
Take this Action."
In Win 98/ME/XP, choose Start | Run and type MSCONFIG. Click OK, then
click on the Startup tab at the upper right of the window that opens.
Uncheck all items listed, click OK, then restart your computer. You
can always recheck those items again at a later time. In Win 2000,
click Ctrl+Alt+Del and manually End Task on the items you don't need
running. Restart

6. If you have Adaptec Direct CD, Napster or Roxio's GoBack, make sure
you uninstall or disable them temporarily. Also temporarily uninstall
any other burning software on your machine. Now reinstall Cakewalk.

Other mp3 burners do not need this much nursing; Roxio and Xing work perfectly out of the box.
I'll probably have to go through this procedure, since I won't get my money back. If I'd known then what I know now...

5-0 out of 5 stars Extremely powerful, mostly easy to use
Pyro does an incredible number of things really well. It took me a little while to figure out a few of the interface features, but after I sorted it out, it was really easy to use, as well. You can rip CDs to MP3, burn CDs, play music, record and edit audio files, and even interface with a portable MP3 player. I ran this under XP and I personally didn't have any trouble with bugs in this software, so I can't corroborate the problems some previous reviewers had at all. Perhaps the version I got had bug fixes already applied.

The interface is organized into tabs, and the start page gets you started with links to common tasks. It launches you into the appropriate tab of the interface with a little help bar that tells you what to do next. That part works pretty well. The issue I had with the interface is that switching amongst different tasks within the sam etab involves using some little icons. It took me a while to notice these icons, and there wasn't a manual to point this out. This meant that the first several times I used Pyro, I kept having to go back to the start screen to do anything different, and it meant that I didn't know about some of the views built into the system. For example, I initially thought that Pyro had the most broken interface ever for listening to an MP3 playlist, because the only view I could find was the waveform view, which organizes tracks left-to-right as waveforms that you can apply effects to. Needless to say, that's not exactly the most intuitive way to listen to a playlist of songs. After I decciphered the interface, it turned out that there was also a straightforward list view, and it was really easy to switch between the two.

As a CD burner, Pyro is very effective. It's easy to build simple playlists (once I found the list view!), but you can also build more elaborate DJ mixes in the waveform view. Even if you don't want to do all that, you can still use useful features like adjusting the audio levels to make sure all your tracks have roughly the same loudness. Personally, I make DJ mixes using Traktor by Native Instruments, which is a powerful tool for live DJing. The problem is that by making one long file of the whole mix, there aren't any track breaks. So the track split feature of Pyro is one of the most useful to me. I can insert track break points, and either burn the resulting mix as a series of tracks, or even save the individual tracks as files (WAV, MP3, or WMA) if I want. Pyro can also make straightforward Data CDs, by building a list of files and folders you want to burn.

As a CD ripper, Pyro uses an adjustable, high-quality MP3 filter, so you can get extremely high quality results (or smaller files, if you prefer). It also can rip to WAV or WMA, though I haven't tried this. It was easy to use, and grabbed CD info from CDDB, as you would expect. My only complaint in ripping CDs was that it didn't let me set the filenames like I wanted to. By default it used the track name as the name of the file, and there was an option to prepend the track number. But there wasn't an option to include the artist name or album name in the filename, which is a little annoying.

I haven't tried to use Pyro with a portable MP3 player. The program includes a link to a webpage that shows which players are compatible with it. If you're interested, here's the page: http://www.cakewalk.com/Owners/Pyro2004/Portables/ . The basic transfer interface appears to be straightforward.

Pyro doesn't burn DVDs, so if you need this feature, this isn't your program. However, Cakewalk does make a program called MediaWorks, which appears to work just like Pyro, but with additional features for burning DVDs. I haven't used MediaWorks, so I can't comment on it.

Pyro works perfectly well as a playlist-based audio file player, though there's nothing really special about it. As far as I can tell, it doesn't maintain its own music file database like some of the jukebox programs, so you just use the file browser pane to drag files from their directory into the playlist. Personally, I would recommend Winamp for music playback (and it's free), but there's nothing wrong with Pyro if you want to use it for that. On the other hand, it's a fairly handy recording program. It gives you basic level meters so you can set your recording level (in the Windows volume control), and it drops the recorded project right into the audio editor pane when it's done, so you can split tracks, readjust levels, add effects, etc. One nice thing is that it uses standard DirectX effects, so if you have other audio programs that come with DirectX effects (such as other Cakewalk programs), you can use all of those effects in Pyro, as well.

It took me a little bit of work to get up to speed with Pyro, but now that I have figured it out, I really like it, and I recommend it for most tasks. I've used previous versions of CD Creator Deluxe (though not the current version), and I think Pyro is a much more polished (and more reliable) program. It does everything I need it to, but it's very streamlined for all the things it does. ... Read more

The program is probably OK, but registration, updating, and customer service is a nightmare. Customer service, if they respond at all, can take days upon days by e-mail. Ahead should take a lesson Nero. That update process is a breeze.

good polished, good interferance, falls down on complexity and vraiety and don't get frustrated if you hear the same tone in three diffrent category with a slight diffrence in cut or boost!

5-0 out of 5 stars Three thumbs up
Fruity Loops has been a long time fave of CleverJoe's. This superb software has evolved over the last few years from a 'cool and quirky' drum machine and electronica pattern generator into a monolithic musician's tool. Fruity Loops is very easy to use so you won't get bogged down in the software. Allowing creativity to flow freely is something that Fruity Loops has always been good at.

Fruity Loops can be used on its own as a complete package, or in combination with a digital recording program like Cakewalk, Cubase, etc. Complex songs and sweet drum loops can be created with a few clicks, and the resulting song or loop can be exported to a WAV or MP3 file, and MIDI can be exported to a standard MIDI file.

Although FL can be used as a complete, stand-alone package, it's also easy to use with other music software including Cakewalk, Cubase, etc. I use Fruity Loops to create the drum track beds for songs I'm working on, then export the tracks as WAV files. The WAV files are then imported into Cakewalk Pro Audio, which is my main digital recorder. Apparently FP can also be synched to external sequencers but I find it very easy to simply export the file as a WAV or mp3 and then import it into another program.

There are a wide range of pro quality effects at your disposal including reverb, phaser, flanger etc. Complex mixing chains can be created with ease. It's loads of fun to just screw around and try different combinations of effects. You can get pretty freaky, which of course is one of the joys of Fruity Loops.

For years, Fruity Loops has long been known and loved as a 'secret gem' within the electronica musician community. Today FP has become much more widely known, and the improved features of this version are truly a dream. The most complete virtual studio currently available, you will be creating wav, mp3 or midi songs or loops only minutes after launching it.

For the record, although another user mentioned that he had trouble registering his product for the lifetime upgrade, I didn't have any trouble at all. I found customer service to be second to none, and the legions of musicians who swear by Fruity Loops are a testament to FP's success.

This software should definitely be included in your arsenal of music software. CleverJoe gives it three big thumbs up!

Amazon.com Review

Mix up a musical storm using percussion, horns, stringed instruments, and even special sound effects. Super Duper Music Looper lets young composers mix tunes ranging in style from orchestral movements to hip-hop.

Designed for kids ages 6 to 10--but simple enough for even younger children to enjoy--Super Duper Music Looper allows users to "paint" their musical compositions, selecting audio tracks with one mouse click and then painting them onto a looping score. The interface design is uncluttered, with only a few buttons. Players newer to reading will find no barriers to using Super Duper Music Looper. Everything is done either visually or by sound--painting sounds, erasing them, and switching instrument tracks. You can even listen to the results as you work.

Combining instruments in this fashion creates tracks that are pleasant enough to listen to, and make especially good background music. What is missing is melody--or an elegant way to create it. Though children can record their own vocal or musical tracks using an external microphone, Super Duper Music Looper would have benefited from some form of keyboard interface that would let them record sequences of notes to top off their compositions. Without this, musically astute players may notice that their products are missing an important component.

Even so, Super Duper Music Looper's user-friendly interface and delightfully wide collection of sound samples will give players great scope for creating interesting musical tracks, in the process learning a great deal about how songs are composed. --Alyx Dellamonica ... Read more

My 4 yr old daughter and 8 year old son LOVE this program. It is easy to use yet has enough sophistication to interest older kids. I just love that my kids are creating music and can experiment with what makes an interesting song. Super Duper Music Looper makes it easy to create fun catchy music. You can also record your own voice and mix that in as well. In an age where kids want to spend too much time playing mindless computer games, I am always delighted to see them use this software (and sometimes, even their mom even gets to play with it!).

4-0 out of 5 stars Great for the kids
My daughter loves it,(she's six).

It is a lot of fun to play with, and my daughter makes her own songs without any help from me. Then she dances around her room singing songs she makes up on the spur of the moment. A joyous thing to see.

I was going to use the lottery as my retirement fund. Maybe I should just become a show business Dad.

Excellent software that will help your kids understand song construction.

5-0 out of 5 stars Fun for Kids and Adults!
My 7 year old daughter and I both enjoy making music w/ this program. Looper is very easy to learn; it took us about 10 minutes to become trackmasters. My kid especially likes creating tracks using her own voice and household sounds and adding them to the songs.

I suspose it could be considered educational, but you are not actually learning music per se. You are learning production techniques. Buy it becasue is fun! ... Read more

Amazon.com Review

Toast with Jam is a tasty software package indeed. Bundled with extras,at least three of which might be sold as standalone applications, Toast Platinum5.1 is the standard CD-burning tool for the Mac. Its Aqua-enhanced interfacemakes it the perfect companion for Mac OS X, and it works smoothly with OS 8.6and OS 9.

Toast Titanium's design is reminiscent of a funky '50s diner jukebox. The windowis resizable, with simple buttons specifying the type of CD you wish to burn.Pop a blank CD-R into your drive, drag your files into the window, hit that big,red glowing record button in the corner, and you're cooking. Toast supports allmajor CD formats, including MP3, Mac/ISO hybrid, and Video CD (playable on manyDVD players).

If the above were all there was to this package, we'd be satisfied and ready fora nap. But included here are Jam and Peak LE VST 3.0 (from Bias Inc.), for thosewho really want to tweak the data on their audio CDs, and Magic Mouse Discus,which lets you design great-looking labels.

Jam lets you create smoothly blended transitions between tracks with thecross-fade editor, and mark up to 49 index points within a track. The programsupports 16- or 24-bit Sound Designer II, AIFF, WAV, or MP3 files, making itextremely versatile. When you're finished tweaking, Jam creates a disk image forToast to burn.

Although it is easy and convenient to burn files directly from Toast, you willhave more control over audio files if you work first from Jam and then exportthe disk image to Toast. Even if you don't plan on creating any cross-fades orindex points, you can still listen to your entire disc and make volumeadjustments, as Jam gives direct control over the final gain for each track.This feature is very flexible. Clicking on the gain amount in the track detailbrings up a slider that lets you boost up to +12 dB or lower to -96 dB. You canalso adjust left and right channels independently of each other.

Peak LE VST 3.0 is a trimmed-down version of the Peak software from Bias Inc.,and it's a very cool and powerful tool. Peak is launched directly from Jam or onits own, and supports a dizzying array of file types, including many notsupported by Jam or Toast. These can, of course, be converted to aToast-friendly type. Although some features in this light version are disabled,you can still manipulate your audio in a number of ways, such as changing gain,normalizing, and adding DSP effects like Reverse and Invert. You can also createregions that Jam will import as tracks.

If you own a Mac and do a lot of CD burning, you want Toast with Jam. It's anextremely good value, and it's very fun to use. Best of all, taking fulladvantage of the features and extras in this package will lend your CDs asolidly professional quality. --John Bosch ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars Jam sold on False Pretenses:beware!
The primary feature distinguishing Jam from Toast or from any of the other vanilla disk burners is its long-standing ability to meld professional split-stereo files into the track list, i.e. a left and right pair of mono files with .L and .R suffixes. This is the main reason that Jam existed, since it otherwise duplicates practically all the features of Toast. Roxio prominently advertises this feature, and provides directions for implementing it in their documentation. It simply does not work. I now see from a previous message posted here and dated last March that this is not an isolated incident. It is clear that for at least 9 months after this gentleman's review was posted that Roxio has not corrected the problem, nor corrected their claims for the product, nor have they posted any warnings on their site indicating that this key feature is not yet implemented. Instead they lead customers into purchasing the software on the basis of this feature, with total disregard for the responsibility to provide the actual product they advertise. This is called lying.
If it were a matter of a shipment that got out with a small problem that contradicted the manual that would be understandable. But to forgo amending their advertising or website or online manual going on close to a year now is unconscionable. Parlaying misinformation for that long is clearly negligent and deceptive practice.
I would recommend against buying this product, sheerly on principle. There are alternatives that do exactly what it does equally well, and these people don't deserve to be rewarded for bad behaviour. Unfortunately there is no other product that provides this missing feature, at least not in an OS-X compatible version.

1-0 out of 5 stars NO STARS FOR (BURNT) TOAST WITH JAM
BACKGROUND: I am a professional guitarist/composer (and an attorney). My various efforts have received favorable reviews from THE NEW YORK TIMES (among many other diverse sources).

I made the grave mistake of buying TOAST WITH JAM for mastering because Roxio touts it (on the box) as "Professional Audio CD Mastering" for the MAC. (I read somewhere that it is an äward winning program.)

FACTS: JAM FAILED TO PERFORM THE MOST BASIC FUNCTION OF SUCCESSFULLY PLACING A PROTOOLS LE SPLIT STEREO FILE IN THE TRACK LIST. I attempted to open up a ProTools LE split stereo file ready to be burned -- no tweaking necessary. It opened the left/right files up as two separate mono files in sequence contrary to the explicit directions on p. 19 of the JAM 5 manual. It would not combine the files to produce a stereo track as the manual said it would. Sighing, I closed the program.

ROXIO's RESPONCE: I immediately emailed Roxio; Roxio "help" said that this was a "KNOWN ISSUE" requiring an upload to correct the defect. Problem is they don't have one available for my problem ....but....they said that they're working on it.

The program is useless for my purposes.

5-0 out of 5 stars Easy as 1, 2, 3!!!!!
This product is almost universally compatible!! The window is resizable, with simple buttons specifying the type of CD you wish to burn. Click audio, data, copy, or other, and the button turns blue. Pop a blank CD-R into your drive, drag your files into the window, hit that big red glowing record button in the corner, and you're cooking. What a simple way to burn CD's.... even off your PC!

5-0 out of 5 stars Toast with Jam
With good reason, Roxio's Toast is probably the best selling CD and DVD Macintosh burning software in the world. Roxio has always been miles ahead of their competition and it looks like they just raised the bar again. Their latest release, Toast with Jam, adds even more functionality to their already powerful product.

Toast Titanium already featured the ability to burn photo, video, music and data to CD and DVD. The new version includes pro audio features that will allow users to edit, arrange, and burn a gold master CD of their recorded music. Also music lovers will find an updated, more flexible cross-fade tool using a graphical waveform interface, a dithering feature that corrects for distortion, which can occur during audio file conversion, and new support for audio files with resolutions up to 24 bits. A robust online help system is new to the product as well.

And when it couldn't get any better, Toast with Jam also includes a version of the popular audio program Peak LE from BIAS. Audio professionals and music lovers will find Toast with Jam an absolute must have. Plus it has a cute name.

Toast with Jam is built for Mac® OS X and also supports Mac® OS 9 users. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Massive price drop
Two of the other reviews of Screenblast Acid 4.0 compare this $60 program to the Professional version at around $250. Both of them say that the Professional version is better. And this is surprising because???? Acid, even when it came from Sonic Foundry, had the same business model as game consoles. Basically, sell the software for cheap and make the real money on selling loops. There is no difference now that Sony's in the picture. As for comparisons between Pro 2.0 and Screenblast 4.0, the fact that you can now get almost the same functionality for $60 as you used to get for $250 should be something to celebrate, not condemn.

There are a few problems with the program. First, I'd love to be able to edit the MIDI file from within the program. Oh well. MIDI sequencers are pretty cheap, and most people who buy this program can't play an instrument.

Second, the effects aren't as comprehensive as you get on the $250 version. I guess that's why I saved almost $200.

And one hint to add. Acidplanet.com is a website that you can use host songs for free. They also have available for FREE DOWNLOAD an "Eight-Pack" of loops. Every week eight new loops. (Yes, I know that it's also marketing. But there's no such thing as a free lunch.) They also have a couple of loop packages available for under $40 at any given time.

Enjoy.

1-0 out of 5 stars you get what you pay for...
this software sucks! first when you get it the samples are so freakin' cheesy and when you want cool loops you have to get on Sony's website and buy them seperately (what a rip off!)
Buy the other Acid pro thats 250 bucks ITS SEMI COOL.
SONY YOU CHEAP RIP OFF!

3-0 out of 5 stars Good with Windows XP, but not with ME
Initially I bought this to run with Windows XP and Windows Me since they are both listed as being supported by Amazon. But, after speaking with Sony tech support I have found that Acid 4.0 is not fully functional with Windows ME. When you run this on a Windows ME system, you can not Render a project to a MP3 file. This is becuase there are no supported templates for MP3 for Acid 4.0 with Windows ME. Also, it locks up my system periodically when I try to do live recordings. But, with Windows XP it works fine. And, if you have a Sony VAIO system that came preinstalled with the Deluxe versions of Acid and SoundForge, be advised that the base Acid 4.0 and SoundForge 1.1 do not have the same capabilities. You will have to update Acid 4.0 and SoundForge so you can perform the same tasks as the pre installed software on your Sony VAIO. However, I do like the multi-track editor.

1-0 out of 5 stars poor
your web address can't be found. i have took acid4.0 back two time and it still dosn't work. i tryed to get my money back but best buy said it is copywrited.so thanks for the trouble!!!!

this has got to be one of worst product that sony
ever put there name on.so thanks for taking my
money!!!!

2-0 out of 5 stars A Step Backwards, for the Price
I owned Acid 2.0 a few years back and had loads of fun making music and re-mixing. A couple years passed, I lost the Installation CD's, and my wife graciously bought me Screenblast Acid 4.0. Well, it looks and works just like Acid 2.0, except the included loops are all cheesy, already slapped-together garbage, and there are much fewer of them.

Sure, you can get more loops via the Screenblast.com web site, but it's $39.95 per year to subscribe. And all the Acid Loop Libraries? Now that Sony owns them, they're $50 EACH!!! Almost the cost of the software itself to own just one library!

If you need more loops (and you WILL), find web sites like AcidFanatic.com, where these libraries are still reasonably priced, or just find free loops elsewhere.

VERY disappointed in this product. You'd think that two revisions and a major media outlet would improve this great product, but Sony has just turned this into a cash cow for their music loops. It's like giving you a car for free, but it runs on "Special" gas that costs $10 a gallon... ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent, well-rounded product
MusicMatch Jukebox 7.0 is an excellent product. It has made vast improvements over the earlier versions in interface and abilities, like ripping and cd burning. It is very easy to use and organize, and has a smooth and customizable interface. The cd burning extension included is very seamless and can be used for data, mp3, and music cds; I use MMJB for ALL of my cd burning, after mediocre experiences with EasyCD and Nero Burning ROM. However, if you need a digital music editor, this is not one, so do not buy it for editing purposes. It maintains a small window, (which is, of course, expandable for seeing larger portions of the playlist) while still having great functionality. The playlist and control bars can be resized or even detached and moved around the screen to your liking. I haven't used the radio feature very much, and so have no comments on it, but if you need an inexpensive, easy to use cd burning program and a great music player, you should definitely buy MMJB.

4-0 out of 5 stars Must Be The MusicMatch
If I had to sum up this software in one word it would be - "Wow". From the minute I purchased it I was completely blown away! If you love technology and music as much as I do, then this is the software for you. You can convert your own music collection into MP3 files with the great of ease. To make things a little easier for yourself I would suggest that you sign on the Internet first to allow the computer to look up the name of the CD, artist, tracks, year, and cover art for your CD. When you place the CD into the CD drive you can review what songs you would like to place on your hard drive, check off the tracks (in the record mode), then covert. It does take practice on how to do this but once you get the swing of it becomes very easy. If your want to get advanced, you can also "tag" each track with additional information like mood, situation, tempo, etc. By breaking it down with such a great level of detail you can have better control of how you want to hear your music based on just a tempo, mood or whatever. Believe me when I say how wonderful it is to have the ability to listen to any kind of music at any given time without having to look for CDs anymore. I just go to my computer click on what songs I want to hear for that particular moment, and just relax. What completely won me over with this software is the fact that you can make CDs and covers effortlessly and quickly. My friends are very impressed with my finished CDs when I come to their homes with complication music for their parties and gatherings. They have a professional finish and wonderful flawless sounds from one track to the next. The magic of this software does not just stop at making music tracks from your CD collection. You can also create voice tracks by hooking up a mic to your computer, or you can hook up your stereo to make old records or tapes into MP3 files. I can go on and on, with what I have done with my MusicMatch but I am sure you get the point by now - just get it you will love it!

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent product... versatile and easy to use
I have been a MusicMatch user since version 4, so maybe I am one up on new users, but I find that this program is spectacular! A lot of people have written reviews stating that they can't play songs in order by track number... these people need to open their eyes! MusicMatch allows you to list many different aspects of the tagging information in your library listing (just double click on the library window to edit), among them are MP3 encoding bit rate (so you know what quality the MP3 is) and track number.
If you want to list your songs by track number, you can do it by simply clicking the arrow at the top of the column. If you want to list your MP3s by artist, each of the artist's albums, and by track order within each album, just click the sort arrow at the top of each column in THAT order! How simple is that?
This newest version has a lot of other wonderful features too, such as supper tagging and file renaming (to create standardized file names). It also continues to use MusicMatch's wonderful album-art-as-part-of the-tag feature! I love this! Everytime I listen to an MP3, the album art is displayed on-screen as I listen. This is especially fun when I rip MP3s from old 7" singles, and scan in the original covers! :)
MusicMatch is also fast and reliable: if the error-correction feature is enabled, it will notify you if it had trouble encoding something, which will allow you to verify the quality of THAT encode, without having to double check all of them.
I admit that it is a little big and boxy, but it CAN be minimized during playback, and there are a LOT of easy-to-download skins that are smaller and less boxy than the default skin (frankly, I like BLOOP, but I miss the Paisley skins from versions 4 and 5).
For less than 15 bucks, this product is REALLY fantastic... and if you purchase the lifetime upgrade key, you need never worry about not having the latest version! A+++++!!!!

1-0 out of 5 stars don't get it!!! trust me...and read this
note: if i could give it negative stars i would have given a -5!
When i got it i thought it would be awesome. I realised the problem right away...
When you add tracks to your music library, the tracks are put into alphabetical order. I HATE this. There is no way around it. FOr example: the cd tommy by "the who" has to be played in a certain order for you to understand the story (it's a rock opera if you dind't know) in alphabetical order, it's all messed up. Musicmatch also looks ugly, and is very clunky. I am not a mac person, but i would say that itunes is FAR superior to musicmatch. save yourself the money and download itunes for free. It is SOOOOOOO much better. You'll agree with me if you see both. (trust me)

1-0 out of 5 stars The worst of 3 different CD-burning programs I've owned.
Despite the overall positive reviews you'll see here, BUYER BEWARE. This software is by far the least user-friendly and most cumbersome CD burning program I've owned. Eventually I had no problems learning how to rip and burn CDs, but it still requires too many steps and clicks to get to the action.

My complaints largely center around 2 issues: Burning data CDs and storing track lists. Burning data CDs is truely a pain in the arse using MusicMatch. Programs such as this should have simple drag-and-drop options. But if you're trying to update a data file already on the CD-R, it is not that easy -- it requires extra steps to manually delete the old versions of your data. I have many many data CD-Rs for both work and home, and burning/updating them was an extraordinarily burdensome process.

In regards to saving track lists, I'm an audiophile, and I prefer listening to stored tracks in their original track listing order. If you prefer this too, do not buy MusicMatch. It can only store tracks by name (alphabetically), and does not allow you to listen to the tracks in album track # order. This makes listening to classical, jazz, or any other instrumental album really undesirable. It also makes burning music CDs a pain, because you have to drag-and-drop each track in the desired order. This should be automatic! Freeware like Real Player even lets you store tracks in album listing order...Why not this? Ugh. ... Read more
