Sony Walkman Users Can Enjoy Using this Audio Manager for Free

By Sam James

On Friday, April 10, 2015

SonicStage 4.3, or CP, enables Walkman users to buy and download songs and other audio files from Connect, Sony’s online music store and is now referred to as Music Unlimited. You may not share bought music however, because they have copyright protection. You cannot transfer them onto different devices, too. SonicStage also allows it users to rip audio CDs in various formats such as MP3, WMA, ATRAC, HE-AAC, and AAC. When ripping audio CDs, users can choose if they want copyright protection or not for their files. A dynamic playlist on the other hand, enables users to create playlists and group them depending on artist names, date song was ripped, music genre, album name and many other elements. Originally, SonicStage was designed to be used on various Walkman models including Net MD, Hi-MD, ATRAC CD, and Network. It has new functions though those users of these Walkmans find not important. The new functions are simply a series of support for Windows Vista.

Pros

  • Organizes and manages your audio playlist
  • Protects audio files from piracy

Cons

  • Is not available on the Sony site anymore

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
