Roxio’s Toast 14 for Mac adds easy audio capture, professional DVD creation, iPad & iPhone 6 support, more

Roxio Toast 14

Roxio this week released two new versions of its popular Toast app for managing media on the Mac. Toast 14 Titanium and Toast 14 Pro are out now and include a list of new features for handling media on the desktop and bringing it with you on mobile devices…

With Toast 14 Titanium, the software is gaining a new importer assistant for capturing and enhancing audio from sources like tapes and streams for adding to iTunes, a new DVD creator with templates similar to Apple’s long-discontinued iDVD app, and support for creating media formatted for the iPad, iPhone 6, and iPhone 6 Plus screen resolutions. Here’s what’s new for Titanium:

  • New! Toast Audio Assistant: Import audio from almost anywhere-LPs, tapes, microphone sound, or streamed-then edit, enhance and add it to your music library or burn to CD. Clean up and enhance recordings with audio filters. Capture music to iTunes automatically. 
  • New! Toast MyDVD video burning software: Turn your videos into professional-looking multimedia disc projects, complete with stylish menus and music. Burn to DVD and AVCHD in a few simple steps. Get polished results with themed templates and easily combine multiple movies on one disc. 
  • New! Support for new mobile devices: Enjoy your digital media on favorite devices with support for iPad, iPhone 6/6 Plus, Samsung Galaxy S6 and more.

Toast 14 Pro users get those same new features plus what Roxio describes as “6 digital media must-haves worth over $300” that include Corel® AfterShot™ 2, FaceFilter3 Standard, HDR Express 3, FotoMagico 4.5 RE, iZotope Music & Speech Cleaner, and BD Plug-in for Toast 14 and MyDVD.

Both versions are available now as digital downloads with Toast 14 Titanium at $99 and Toast 14 Pro at $149. For physical disc holdouts, Roxio says it plans to launch Toast 14 Titanium in select retail stores next month.

    Yo Roxio. 1998 called. They want their DVD discs back.

    DVD? Who wants to create DVDs in 2015? What about VHS authoring?
    After verification, only the Pro version supports BluRay authoring. But is it “Pro” at all?
    A propos, Compressor, which is part of Final Cut suite is also capable of authoring BDs and it’s only 50 box, 3 times less. What’s the catch?

      I actually do! DVDs and BLU RAYS. I have been sold software in the past and when time came to burning the disc the software did, but bad quality. There was errors of many kinds. Yes, I played with the setting! Finally updating myself with a good setup. What version of compressor? Any more details would be great.

      And me. I still have several dance clients who want their DVD’s although I am gently steering them towards USB sticks – but the love their menus. A lot of clients also want their VHS collection on DVD as well. Was handed a bag of them today! And – last time I looked – it was 2015!!

    And let me guess – it is still 32bit?

  4. Easy audio capture was added back in 2003 with version 2.0 of CD Spin Doctor… Version 5 added streaming capture. Not new at all…

    Toast Audio Assistant? I can not record audio from films or any other streaming audio from my Mac.
