Chaotic Software has updated MP3 Rage for Mac OS 9.x and Mac OS X, to version 5.1.1.
With MP3 Rage, you can edit ID3 tags, analyze MP3s; adjust your sound volume automatically to play at similar levels; export MP3 files to AIFF format for burning CDs; play MP3 files with the built-in player; catalog, organize, rename, find and change MP3 files and their ID3 tags; and search for and download artwork and lyrics from the Internet.
MP3 Rage 5.1.1 adds an MP3TagEditX Contextual Menu Plug-in for Mac OS X for directly editing MP3 tags in the Finder. It also adds support for long filenames when organizing music via moving or copying to a different volume and support for long filenames in the MP3 Player. The update improves the way files/folders are named when making them compatible with Windows or stripping characters not allowed by ISO 9660 to try to keep as much of the original name as possible.
The new MP3 Rage checks for case when renaming MP3 files would make them invisible on Mac OS X (files beginning with a period are made invisible on Mac OS X) and display a warning rather than renaming the file. It also adds all tools to the file/folder routing popups in the preferences.
It’s available immediately for a suggested retail price of US$24.95. This update is free for users of version 5.0 or later. Users of MP3 Rage prior to version 5.0 can upgrade for $10. Purchases can be made via
Chaotic Software’s online store
. Also, a 15-day free trial is available for download from the company’s Web site.
