"...On January 9, 2001, Roxio announced the latest version of their flagship CD recording software for Macintosh, Toast 5 Titanium, at MacWorld in San Francisco, CA. Available this Spring, Toast 5 Titanium will be the most powerful CD mastering software for Macintosh ever created. Toast 5 Titanium boasts a totally new user interface specifically designed for use on Mac OS X, the ability to burn CDs in the background, automated MPEG encoding for burning iMovies onto VideoCDs for playback in most DVD players, and support for most DVD-RAM and DVD-R/RW drives.
Among its many new features, Toast Titanium now includes all the tools needed for complete CD mastering. One new application included is iView Multimedia, the easiest way for professionals and consumers to organize images, photos, movies, sounds, fonts and files. You can also create thumbnail catalogs, create slide shows and video postcards, or publish web galleries of your media on the Internet. Another cool tool included is QDesign MVP, a digital media player that allows you to encode and convert songs from one format to another, playback music and video files, and create and manage play lists.
For music enthusiasts, Toast 5 Titanium lets you turn LPs into CDs with CD Spin Doctor. With CD Spin Doctor, users can eliminate noises, pops and hisses from old LPs, while boosting the bass and treble. Once a music CD is burned, you can easily create a custom CD label using Discus from Magic Mouse. This label printing program includes hundreds of background graphics and useful clip art images and supports over 22 different brands of CD labeling paper. If that's not enough, Toast 5 Titanium also includes sample MP3 songs, digital photos from the photographer James Beal, and sample video clips.
Toast 5 Titanium will be available this Spring and will be priced at $99. If you are a Toast 4 Deluxe user, you can upgrade to Toast 5 Titanium for only $59..."
