their latest utilities pack, The Big Mix, which includes nine music-related applications created by other developers.
Audio Hijack records all audio playing on your Mac; you can use its timers to make recordings even when you’re not at your computer. Disco features an interface that emulates DJ hardware as it lets you mix two tracks like a live DJ. Doggiebox is a virtual drum machine that features different drum kits.
GrooveMaker 2.5 LE lets you create professional-quality electronic dance music. IPodRip copies tracks from your iPod to your iTunes library or simply plays them in iTunes if you’re low on hard drive space. iTunes Publisher allows you to sort, format, and export playlists from iTunes into HTML, text, Tabbed-Text, Quicktime Streaming Server, and M3U general playlist formats.
Draw musical notes with a mouse and learn about composition with Making More Music, which features almost two dozen instruments. MP3 Rage edits ID3 tags, analyzes MP3s and exports them to AIFF format for CD burning, catalogs and organizes MP3s, and more. Finally, media producers will appreciate Spark LE, which features a real-time Master Section and a variety of plug-ins.
The Big Mix is available now for US$99. It requires Mac OS X v.10.1 or higher, except iPodRip, which requires Mac OS X v.10.2 (Jaguar).
