Mireth Technology has updated Music Man (http://www.mireth.com/) — the Mac OS X ripper, converter, burner, player digital music software — to version 3.0. The upgrade adds the ability to make an iPhone ringtone, adds ID3 tag editor support, adds FLAC and Apple Lossless playback and convert from support, and improved Clip support.

Music Man can rip, convert, burn and play MP3, WMA, WAV, AAC, AIF, Audio CD, MIDI and Ogg Vorbis on Mac OS X. It also has 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, according to the folks at Mireth. Another feature is the mono mixdown feature, which burns all the music to both the right and left track, so one-ear listening lets you hear both tracks.

Music Man is available for immediate download, or on CD-ROM, starting at $24.95. Registered users of Music Man version 2.8.4 can take advantage of this free update. Registered users of previous versions of Music Man can take advantage of an upgrade discount. Educational pricing and volume discounts are available.
