We must be the only two people in the world who still have SonicStage installed (and use it, in my case).

I left a good chunk of music back in my country (FLAC)... used to have a Hi-MD, then used to have a lot of songs in Atrac3+... then switched to aac, but forgot to convert some good albums from flac...

I think almost all of Metro ones can be resized. Others, not so much

I used to have my whole CD collection in ATRAC3+ too. I always liked SonicStage, the tag editor was pretty good but slow. I only use it to put new music on my old Walkman now (which still has stellar audio quality).

It's a shame ATRAC3 died. It was really good at compression, and compression artifacts were much less annoying and audible than they are in MP3 or AAC.

Atrac3 indeed was a good codec, too bad they didn't went the same route as mp3, it could have literally, replaced mp3 back then... I still got my Hi-MD back in my country, but had to move to a 16 gb Walkman, audio quality is great too.

I used to use sonicstage with my sony circ 1GB player. that player still works after being put thru the wash!!! left it in my pocket and it got cleaned allright.... it still worked but all the tracks were deleted.I just put the tracks back on and it worked like it was still new LOL. wish more stuff was made that way!

sonicstage was ok but it was kinda wonky having an extra layer to go thru to transfer songs. I did love how good the compression was... just like I loooove how good .rmvb compression was for videos.... It enabled me to still download anime subs over dialup at a partially acceptable rate. whole eps under 40MB? hell yeah! now the average sub ep is like 400-500MB in HD though.... but at teh time .rmvb saved my ass. LOL.
