Salinas, CA: Casady & Greene, Inc. announced today the release of a new
revision of SoundJam MP. Version 1.6 of SoundJam MP features a host of
upgraded features that make SoundJam MP the clear choice as THE MP3
solution on the Mac. SoundJam MP v1.6 adds the capability to encode sound
files into high quality MP2 format. Now users can choose between MP2, MP3,
and AIFF file encoding.
In addition to adding the MP2 format to SoundJam MP’s encoding
capabilities, version 1.6 has upgraded it’s internet capabilities for
playing music streams live off the internet. Users will notice how easy
playing streams can be – in SoundJam MP v1.6 there are no complex
adjustments of the preference settings required, it “just works.”
Many of the changes to this version are subtle, meant to upgrade the user’s
enjoyment of the product. SoundJam MP v1.6 allows live window dragging, a
feature which enhances another upgrade, support for Transparent skins.
Users will be able to create cool new transparent skins just in time for
our upcoming Skin Contest later this month.
Many of the feature changes in version 1.6 are in response to the user’s
requests. Hierarchical folders in playlists were a direct result of our
users’ suggestions as was the addition of both Fast Forward and Reverse
SoundJam MP v1.6 greatly improves the quality of the user’s experience,
enhances the interface with MP3 portable players and fully supports the
Macintosh architecture. SoundJam MP provides the Mac interface for the
I-JAM and Rio 500 portable MP3 players and will support Creative Labs’
Nomad II upon its release. SoundJam MP v1.6 supports Mac OS 9 and is
accelerated for the G4 Velocity engine.
