Because nearly 80 percent of CD-R/RW recording needs are oriented towards audio, NTI CD Maker 2000 includes such high-performance audio features as MP3 on-the-fly recording, MP3 to WAV decoding, WAV/CD-DA encoding to MP3 (20x trial), CD Text support and high-speed audio extraction (ripping).
NTI CD Maker includes other features such as support for data recording, CD Extra and Mixed Mode. Filed CD, a speedy drag-and-drop packet-writing application, turns the CD-R/RW drive into a 650MB floppy. A CD Copy function is also included. NTI CD Maker 2000 supports Track-at-Once, Disc-at-Once and Session-at-Once recording on CD-R/RW drives ranging from 1x through 12x-drive technology in Windows 95/98/2000/NT environments. This application records audio, data and video files, turning a PC into a virtual recording studio. The EasySteps(TM) interface provides a step-by-step methodology while maintaining easy access to broad options desired in CD mastering applications.
NTI CD Maker 2000 will be available on CD with Intel Desktop Boards in the second quarter of 2001. NTI CD Maker 2000-Standard Edition can be upgraded to CD Maker 2000-Professional Edition within the application. The Professional Edition includes features such as CD-CD/WAV to MP3 encoding, Live Audio Recording, click/pop and hiss filters, Music Cafe MP3/WAV/CD-DA player and Jewel Case/Label Maker.
