has released version 4.5 of Discribe, the company’s CD mastering program, adding additional drive support, background burning, and more. Discribe allows users to burn CDs in a variety of formats including HFS, ISO-9660, hybrid and audio in both track-at-once and disc-at-once mode.
Version 4.5 adds support for burning Video CDs, CD Extra discs, and adds enhanced CD copy capability. Discribe will also now let you burn CDs in the background. What’s more, the software’s native FireWire drivers are also now compatible with Apple’s iTunes software, eliminating the need to change extension sets when using the two programs.
Finally, the latest version of Discribe has also added support for a number of new FireWire, SCSI, ATAPI and USB drives. Discribe includes AudioScribe, a direct-to-disk recording utility that lets you record vinyl, voice or tape to hard disk in AIFF format. These files can then be mastered to CD using Discribe.
