This app needs the .NET runtime framework
V1.1 (23 MB), which can be flawlessly installed side by side with other versions of the .NET runtime, and
Both are also available from Windows Update and by default already included in Windows Vista, so there is a good chance that
these libraries are already installed at your PC. Important: In case you get runtime errors during recording, please check if you have installed only V2.0. In such a case make sure that you have installed V1.1 of the .NET framework as well. These Windows components are designed to work flawlessly side by side with both versions beeing installed.
You need to have installed SonicStage and/or OpenMG besides

Records and saves a selected number of individual tracks from MD to the PC as separated
MP3 or WAV files without additional user action (no trimming and splitting). Recorded tracks are named
(and tagged) after
the MD song title and optionally after additional information about the song like record mode or track length.
Uses analogue, real-time (1x) recording from line-out to the PC.
If you have a NetMD deck, optical digital recording is possible, too.
Directly burn the recorded music onto a Music CD.
With one checkbox-click the recorded files are automatically burned to an
Audio CD. This feature requires Windows XP.
Possibility to record a number of tracks into one sound
file continuously. Along with the recording a .CUE file is automatically
created, which contains the exact song timings and song names. This makes it
possible to easily burn this recording e.g. with Nero to CD with best possible
song timings. (new in V1.3)
"freedb"-access, get title information for albums that are already on MD.
Chinese (BGK, BIG5) and Japanese (Shift-Jis) encoded database entries can be
correctly used for titling. Record your CDs to MD using your HiFi CD player
and a optical connection in order to get maximum sound quality. Title the
album on MD using Win NMD and the internet database for CD album names, freedb.
Unicode compatible application with proper codepage
conversation for the MD player. Enabling direct input of Japanese and
Chinese characters regardless of Operating System language.
Title the MD and the Songs with Japanse/Chinese
characters in the DoubleByte area, which are shown on special remote
controls. This can be done without any codepage conversations, as this app is
Unicode compatible and allows direct keyboard-input.
Title the songs with Japanese Katakana characters in
the SingleByte-Area, which are correctly displayed by the MD players on the
display of the unit and on the standard remote control.
- Copy a
configurable list of the
MD contents to the clipboard and paste the list as a table to MS Excel.
Mass title renaming: you can prepare or copy a number of lines of text to the
clipboard and then use these text line for titling the MD songs.

Screenshot 1: New mini-mode and sys-tray icon (in mini-mode or in minimized state)
Screenshot 2: Version 1.3
Screenshot 3: Recording options (version 1.3)
4: Recording progress dialog (with new sound level meter)
5: Version 1.2 Showing the Freedb function, which titles the songs on MD if
they are a complete album copy from a known CD. This way you can copy your
songs from HiFi CD player optical, and later title the MD using this free
internet service, which is similar to the commercial cddb function. A
Codepage-option allows the codepage conversion from Japanese (Shift-Jis) and
Chinese (Big5, GBK) so the titles in the MD double byte can be written correctly in
the Shift-Jis Format.
Screenshot 6: Showing MD content, titled with freedb internet
database. Two hits, one with Chinese and one with English characters make it
possible in this case, to automatically fully expose the titling capabilities of
MD technology. In this case the MD player unit would show the English characters
and a Double-Byte capable remote control would show the Chinese characters.
