  Pyro MP3, CD Creation Software

Cakewalk, the leading provider of music and sound software for Windows, is now shipping Cakewalk Pyro, the complete solution for creating MP3s and CDs. Pyro provides a seamless environment for organizing and playing digital music both on and off the PC. Designed to simplify and streamline the process of digital music playback and management, Pyro is the ideal software for today's music enthusiasts wanting to take advantage of the digital music revolution.

"Music lovers really appreciate Pyro, because it's so much more than just a PC jukebox. Pyro offers a complete, end-to-end solution that takes all of the complexity out of managing and enjoying digital music," explained Erik Tarkiainen, vice president of product management for Cakewalk.

"Not only does Pyro manage MP3 and CD creation, it provides a way for users to 'rip and burn' vinyl and tape, an essential feature for serious music listeners who need to digitally preserve and archive their collections," continued Tarkiainen. "And with Cakewalk ESP (Environmental Sound Processing) technology, Pyro optimizes digital music playback characteristics according to where the user chooses to listen to their music- whether it's on a portable MP3 player, a home stereo or on a PC. Just point and click to experience the best sound."

Pyro is the only product of its kind to include ESP technology for optimizing audio playback quality for the user-selected listening environment.
