MusicMatch is introducing the latest version of MusicMatch Jukebox and MusicMatch Jukebox Plus — and announced MusicMatch Jukebox 2.0 — at Macworld Expo in San Francisco.
Described as “the word’s first all-in-one music jukebox software,” MusicMatch Jukebox enables Mac users to play digital music on their Macs. The software comes with a content CD containing 75 free audio files encoded using the MP3 format. The files span a wide range of music genres, according to MusicMatch.
MusicMatch Jukebox provides users with the ability to record MP3 audio files from their personal CD collections. Users can play audio CDs using the software, too. MusicMatch Jukebox can be used to catalog user’s audio collections using the software’s integrated Music Library. The MusicMatch Guide also provides custom music recommendations for users looking for new music, and provides access to free MP3 files from major labels and independent artists alike.
MusicMatch is now offering a MusicMatch Jukebox for the Mac line that streams MP3 and M3U digital track. An improved MusicMatch Guide brings new music recommendations and comprehensive artist information — such as album art, notes and artist biographies on tracks — currently in play, Ehrin Cummings, associate account executive for MusicMatch, told MacCentral.
MusicMatch Jukebox Plus offers new CD burning capabilities (through the Adaptec Toast program), a graphic equalizer and line-in recording.
You can now download the software at the MusicMatch
Web site. The basic program is free; MusicMatch Jukebox Plus costs US $19.99. Both programs require a Power Mac G3 or better, Mac OS 8.6 or higher, speakers/headphones and Stuffit Expander.
