KARLSRUHE, Germany, September 29 /PRNewswire/ -- RapidSolution Software AG has made the 5th generation Radiotracker web radio software public on the website http://audials.com. The absolutely unique MusicFinder, the reception quality, the user comfort and the number of web radios and output formats are just a few of the highlights that have been extended and enhanced.

Radiotracker focuses on the wishes of users

Two very comprehensible guiding principles have made Radiotracker the most favoured international web radio software and the most sold web radio software in Germany between April 2007 and March 2008: "Select the type of music. Press the start button. Receive thousands of MP3s from web radios in no time at all." This is how it all began. With version 3, Radiotracker was extended to "Compile a wish list with artists and tracks from the Radiotracker database. Press the start button. Receive specific favourite music free of charge within no time at all." Version 5 sees considerable enhancements to the function that has been highly acclaimed by international trade magazines and enrichment with further new innovations:

A Filter alone doesn't make a MusicFinder. Only Radiotracker has the original MusicFinder

Only the Platinum Edition of Radiotracker uses a global network to simultaneously monitor 2,000 web radios and then find and record only exactly the desired music. With an average search time of 25 seconds Radiotracker isn't just quicker at locating music, but also finds considerably more of the desired music, which is then perfectly and automatically cut and made available to the user together with cover pictures, lyrics and ID3 tags. Only Radiotracker offers such a unique function.

Music to fit the mood now also available with Radiotracker

With Radiotracker 5 Platinum users can supply themselves with music that fits their current mood or the prevailing atmosphere using their own wish lists or lists downloaded from the new "Audials Community". Various favourite lists of web radios can also be compiled and managed based on mood or other criteria. In order to compile its own radio programme, Radiotracker now records additional so called social web radios such as Last.fm, Pandora, Soundclick, Yahoo Launchcast and other stations.

New AAC audio format for Apple & Co.

The number of web radios in Radiotracker has now increased with version 5 to over 20,000. The origin of the web radios is now indicated with a national flag. New for version 5 are AAC audio format web radios. Music with the AAC file format has a higher quality and smaller file sizes than the MP3 standard and can be played on the current generation of mobile devices, such as Apple iPod, Apple iPhone and the Walkman mobile telephones from Sony Ericsson.

Unquestionably the number 1 for the legal establishment and expansion of free music collections

Whether for the mass supply of music according to musical taste with the "Autorip" function, or with the MusicFinder's wish lists, Radiotracker has for many years been an unbeatable instrument for the targeted establishment of music collections. This also applies to the new Radiotracker 5 Platinum Edition, which fulfils a musical desire on average every 25 seconds. An improvement on previous versions is the selection of artists according to recognition and frequency in the database. The portfolio of suggested similar musicians to an artist and music style searched for by a user is now more comprehensive and has been considerably improved in terms of the target precision.

Evolution in the quality of music recording

The quality of recorded music is now evaluated by Radiotracker. Radiotracker cuts, normalises and automatically inserts fading. Music tracks with excellent quality and fully removed voice-overs are labelled with a green tick mark. A dedicated studio is available for rarely required post processing of music tracks. With version 5, the hit rate of the MusicFinder and the recording quality has improved once again.

The best from 80 styles of music, 20,000 web radios and 70,000 artists is just a click away

Alongside the new innovations, user comfort has been improved in many respects and in many places. The management of podcasts has been more tightly integrated and developed further. The CD burning function has been improved. Along with the Radiotracker Player, it is now also possible to use Winamp, Apple iTunes and Windows Media Player as alternatives for playing music. The automatic completion of pieces of music with ID3 tags, cover pictures and lyrics, as well as their display, is now more comfortable than was the case in previous versions.

"Unterhaltung Cool & Clever" (Cool & Clever Entertainment") stands for innovation, premium quality and stable prices

Still priced at 29.90 euros, the 5th generation of the Radiotracker, with the Platinum Edition, continues to provide free and legal music from web radios. In the shops consumers can obtain the Audials product range with Avanquest boxes. Audials products, the most sold and international honoured software, are adorned with the "Unterhaltung Cool & Clever" logo and are the best applications for obtaining and editing entertainment media.
