Mireth Technology Corp. has released a Universal Binary version of Music Man, its Mac OS X digital music software. Version 1.7.6 of Music Man will now run native on both Mac Power PC and on the new Intel Mac (MacIntel) under Mac OS X. This version also adds new features, including Audio CD burning capability.
Music Man is easy to use, full featured digital music software for Mac that can rip, convert, burn and play MP3, WMA, WAV, AAC, AIF, Audio CD and Ogg Vorbis on Mac OS X. Music Man was designed specifically to be both full featured and easy to use, so that users can enjoy a full range of digital music features. Originally designed to burn and play MP3 CDs, Music Man has evolved to include ripping, converting and burning of other formats as they have developed, including WMA, WAV, ACC(M4A), Ogg Vorbis and now, Audio CD. Music Man provides burning capability to Audio CD, MP3 CD, DVD and USB Flash drives.
Music Man also offers many unique burning features, such as variable burn quality that allows for burning up to four times as much music on a USB Flash Drive as when using standard burn technology. Another unique feature is the mono mixdown feature. There are many situations in which using ear phones in both ears is inconvenient or unsafe, such as when grocery shopping, when walking at night, or when minding children. In these situations, listening with only one earphone in and one ear free would be preferable, but can hinder the listening experience because stereo sound depends on both the right and left track being heard together. Unlike stereo, Mono mixdown burns all the music to both the right and left track, so that even with one ear listening, both tracks can be heard.

Music Man is available for immediate download, or on CD-ROM, starting at $19.95. Registered users of previous versions of Music Man can upgrade for free. Educational pricing and volume discounts are available. Music Man runs on Mac OS X (Power PC and Intel Mac).
