SoundJam 1.1 Adds G4 Support

Send Article to a Friend

SoundJam 1.1 Adds G4 Support -- Casady & Greene has released SoundJam 1.1, a free update to their $40 MP3 player and encoder. The primary improvement to SoundJam 1.1 is support for the new Power Mac G4's Velocity Engine (previously known as AltiVec). Support for the Velocity Engine increases file conversion speed by two to four times on 450 MHz and 500 MHz Power Mac G4s. You can now enter your own genre information, specify the ID3 tag version SoundJam uses to store meta-information within MP3 files, and see ID3 information in the file information windows. Low-level improvements include better MP3 conversion sound quality, enhanced AppleScript support, better overall stability, better support for playing songs from an AppleShare server, and various minor bug fixes. SoundJam 1.1 is a 1.5 MB download. [ACE]
