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

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
