Lexington, Mass.-based developer Portents has released
The Rip Monkey, a new solution designed to work with up to three of PowerFile’s R200 MFX series libraries, each of which can hold up to 200 CDs. Once set up, The Rip Monkey converts all the tracks on the CDs to MP3, AAC, AIFF or WAV format and imports them into iTunes. The software by itself is US$999; bundles that include PowerFile libraries start at $3,999. Mac OS X v10.3, iTunes 4.7 and 1GB of free hard drive space are required.
