Toast 14 Titanium and Toast 14 Pro

Roxio has released Toast 14 Titanium, a major release for the venerable digital media suite. Version 14 brings with it the new Toast Audio Assistant, which enables you to import audio from external sources (such as microphones, tapes, and LPs) as well as streamed audio, and then either burn to CD or send it to iTunes. It also adds the Toast MyDVD video burning software, which can burn multimedia disc projects using themed templates to DVD and AVCHD. The release also adds support for the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, as well as the Samsung Galaxy S6. Roxio also offers Toast 14 Pro with the same new features, as well as six additional software titles — Corel AfterShot 2, FaceFilter3 Standard, HDR Express 3, iZotope Music & Speech Cleaner, and BD Plug-in for Toast 14 and MyDVD. Toast 14 Titanium is priced at $99.99, while Toast 14 Pro is available for $149.99. Previous owners of Roxio Toast, Popcorn, and Easy VHS to DVD for Mac qualify for upgrade pricing of $59.99 for the Titanium edition and $99.99 for the Pro edition. ($99.99/$149.99 new, $59.99/$99.99 upgrade, 10.7+)
