Roxio Launches The Boom Box iPod Software Suite

Roxio announced Thursday the launch of The Boom Box, a Mac software suite comprised of five iPod applications.

The Boom Box features CD Spin Doctor to digitize vinyl and tape recordings; MusicMagic Mixer, a personal, portable DJ that analyzes acoustic elements of each song in a useris collection to automatically generate playlists; Audio Hijack to capture audio from an application in real-time; iPodderX to subscribe to podcasts and have them automatically delivered to the desktop; and iSpeak It, which makes it easy for users to convert text-based documents such as e-mails or web pages into spoken word audio files.

The Boom Box is available today for purchase online and will be widely available at retail later this month for a suggested retail price of US$49.95
