For the music enthusiast, Toast 4 Deluxe now offers Disc-at-Once recording, and MP3-to-CD audio burning capabilities.

Users will also have access to CDDB's unique Disc Recognition Service, where artist, album and song title information are automatically available for use, eliminating the need for users to manually type in titles. Another new audio feature is the CD Spin Doctor application, which allows users to take old LPs, clean up hisses and pops, add hi-fidelity back, then burn to CD.
