Roxio launched The Boom Box(TM), a Mac software suite comprised of five premium applications that allows owners to organize or add new to their existing multimedia libraries.
The Boom Box features two applications that enable iPod owners to rediscover their music collections. CD Spin Doctor(R) offers a straightforward way to digitize vinyl and tape recordings including features for automatically detecting tracks, removing unwanted noise and enhancing overall sound quality. MusicMagic Mixer(TM) is a personal, portable DJ. It analyzes acoustic elements of each song in a user's collection to automatically generate playlists.
The Boom Box also includes Audio Hijack(TM); acomponent that captures audio from an application in real-time. Users can schedule the recording of a favorite Internet radio show. In addition, iPodderX(TM) allows users to subscribe to their favorite podcasts and have them automatically delivered to their desktop ready for transfer to their iPod. Rounding out the suite is iSpeak It, which allows users to convert text-based documents such as e-mails or web pages into spoken word audio files.
