Vancouver, Canada, March 31, 2008 — Mireth Technology Corp. has released
a new version of Music Man, its Mac OS X ripper, converter, burner, player
digital music software. Version 2.7 of Music Man adds enhanced WMA
Support, DVD-Audio burning capability and OS X 10.5 compatibility.
With this release, Music Man enhances support of WMA to include support for
WMA9. Although a WMA file originally only contained a single audio track
encoded with the Windows Media Audio (WMA) codec, with the introduction of
WMA 9, it may now contain a single audio track in one of four codecs:
Windows Media Audio (WMA), Windows Media Audio Pro (WMA Pro), Windows Media
Audio Lossless (WMA Lossless), Windows Media Audio Voice (WMA Voice). Of
these four codes, the most popular is still WMA, the original file format.
Music Man now supports the first three of these codecs, with the Windows
Media Components for QuickTime installed.
Music Man is an easy to use, full featured digital music software for Mac
that can rip, convert, burn and play MP3, WMA, WAV, AAC, AIF, Audio CD,
MIDI and Ogg Vorbis on Mac OS X. Music Man was designed specifically to be
both full featured and easy to use, so that users can enjoy a full range of
digital music features. Originally designed to burn and play MP3 CDs,
Music Man has evolved to include ripping, converting and burning of other
formats as they have developed, including WMA, WAV, ACC(M4A,M4B), MIDI
(MID, KAR), Ogg Vorbis and Audio CD. Music Man provides burning capability
to Audio CD, MP3 CD, DVD and USB Flash drives.
Music Man also offers many unique burning features, such as variable burn
quality that allows for burning up to four times as much music on a USB
Flash Drive as when using standard burn technology. Another unique feature
is the mono mixdown feature. There are many situations in which using ear
phones in both ears is inconvenient or unsafe, such as when grocery
shopping, when walking at night, or when minding children. In these
situations, listening with only one earphone in and one ear free would be
preferable, but can hinder the listening experience because stereo sound
depends on both the right and left track being heard together. Unlike
stereo, Mono mixdown burns all the music to both the right and left track,
so one ear listening still hears both tracks.

Music Man is available for immediate download, or on CD-ROM, starting at
$24.95. This is a free upgrade for registered users of Music Man 2.
Educational pricing and volume discounts are available. Music Man runs on
