Siren Express is Sonic Foundry's answer to the likes of MusicMatch Jukebox. It will organise your digital music collection, and play mp3s and wavs backed with stunning visualisations. It WILL NOT decode mp3 files to wav files, and the full version (costing $35.95) is required to burn mp3 files to audio CDRs. However, the free "Xpress" version plays mp3 files faultlessly - the playback routines passed all our tests. Highly Recommended.
