Roxio Inc. on Monday introduced Toast with Jam 6. Toast is Roxio’s CD and DVD burning software for the Mac, and Jam provides users with high-quality audio tools. The new combination will be previewed this week at
Macworld Conference & Expo in San Francisco, Calif.
Toast with Jam 6 offers users mixing and mastering capabilities that Toast alone can’t do. Jam provides DJ-style crossfade capabilities, and can produce 100-percent Redbook-compliant masters. The new version offers more flexible cross-fading options and an improved interface, along with integrated burning.
Also included is Bias Peak Express, audio editing software that enables you to enhance and clean files. The same product is bundled with Apple’s Final Cut Pro video editing software. Bias Peak Express supports Mac OS X Audio Unit effects, and includes VST plug-ins and filters.
Dolby Digital Sound software is included. This encoding and decoding software enables users to fit more content in their projects without losing fidelity. It enables users to use existing Dolby Digital content in their Toast products, and also offers the ability to produce DVD Music Albums, complete with on-screen menus, drag & drop support from iTunes and more.
Toast with Jam 6 will be available in March, although Roxio is expected to take pre-orders at Macworld Expo this week. It costs US$199.95. Existing Toast with Jam users can upgrade with a $30 mail-in rebate. And if you already own Toast 6 Titanium, you’ll be able to buy the Jam 6 package separately for $99.95.
System requirements call for a G3 or higher; Mac OS X v10.2 or higher; 200MB hard disk space; QuickTime 6 or higher; CD or DVD recorder.
