LOUISVILLE, Colo., March 24 /PRNewswire/ -- UltraCo Incorporated and Proteron LLC announced today the integration of the Proteron EasyMP3(TM) ripper & encoder into the highly acclaimed UltraPlayer(TM) Audio Software. Users can now convert their own music CDs into the popular MP3 or WAV audio formats directly from UltraPlayer. The UltraPlayer Audio Software and EasyMP3 encoder are available for download from http://www.ultraplayer.com.
With the addition of the EasyMP3, UltraPlayer is the only lightweight music player application with integrated MP3 encoding. Other popular players, like Winamp(TM) and Sonique(TM), do not offer this powerful and easy-to-use feature. The UltraPlayer -- EasyMP3 combination provides an elegant and lightweight tool for users who wish to avoid increasingly bloated jukebox applications.
UltraPlayer works with the EasyMP3 software on-demand, freeing system resources when users are simply playing music. The "next-generation" encoding feature launches automatically when users want to convert CD tracks into MP3 files. EasyMP3 encodes at 32-320 Kbps or with VBR, and supports the popular CDDB2(TM) database service.
"We're very excited to provide UltraPlayer users with a simple, sleek, and flexible way to create MP3 files. We looked carefully for a high-quality, fast encoder, and EasyMP3 definitely meets those requirements," said UltraCo President, Andy Fanton.
The UltraPlayer audio software plays MP3, WMA, WAV, CD Audio, and Internet radio streams using the highly efficient Neutrino(TM) MPEG audio decoder. UltraPlayer features a dual-mode, intuitive interface with UltraSkins and visualization modules. The feature-packed application allows users to play, build and manage playlists, tune to and record Internet radio streams, search for music, rip CD tracks to MP3s, convert MP3s to WAV files, set the SmartAlarm, and much more.
The UltraPlayer audio software is available for free download at http://www.ultraplayer.com. UltraPlayer users who wish to convert CD tracks into MP3 can download the free trial-version of EasyMP3 from http://www.ultraplayer.com.
