Free Audio Manager and Player to Enjoy Your Sony Walkman More

By Sam James

On Tuesday, July 14, 2015

SonicStage Version 4.3, or SonicStage CP, was designed for Net MD Walkman, Hi-MD Walkman, ATRAC CD Walkman, and Network Walkman users. As a fan of Sony’s trademark music player, I find the new functions unnecessary, but worth the review, so others will also know whether to get this version or not. The new functions involve a series of support for Windows Vista. SonicStage can rip MP3, WMA, ATRAC, HE-AAC, and AAC audio CDs. It enables a user to choose whether to add copyright protection or not when ripping audio files as well. A dynamic playlist is available, too. Users can create playlists according to artist names, music genre, date file was ripped, and many other file elements. In addition, Walkman users can buy and download music from Sony’s online Connect music store which is now more known as Music Unlimited. However, bought and downloaded songs cannot be transferred to other devices because they are copyright protected.

Pros

  • Offers a dynamic and organized playlist
  • Can copyright protect music files

Cons

  • Installation is a meticulous process

Manageable Audio Manager Available for Free for Sony Walkman Users

By Pablo Conde Ferrer

On Friday, September 19, 2014

SonicStage is an audio tool that is full of features. It allows its users to manage a collection of audio files without any problems. Users can create their very own music library with this audio marvel. Its built-in player enables users to play music files which support various popular audio formats. It supports a few that have already been discontinued as well. While you use it, SonicStage enables you to pick from a normal user interface or a reduced version. The number of controls that are allowable for each interface is what differs between the two. The reduced version is most convenient for users who prefer continuous playing of music with less user-control. Being an expert in SonicStage is not hard. Anybody can get used to it easily. The music library enables you to classify and organize your songs, while it also allows you to transfer them onto audio CDs. You can even import them onto portable audio devices.

Pros

  • Plays various formats of audio files
  • Can transfer songs onto portable audio devices

Cons

  • Songs bought from Sony’s online music store are copyrighted and cannot be transferred
