MusicMatch, a maker of software for playing and organizing music, has announced plans for a new version of Jukevox 1.0.

The company also announced an investment in it by Intel.

MusicMatch makes ‘jukebox’ software, this lets users record CDs, download music from the Internet, organize play lists and transfer tracks to portable digital music players. The company pioneered the jukebox solution over two years ago.

Bob Ohweiler, senior Vice president of business development for MusicMatch, said: "A lot of the music industry uses Macs because Apple has a real creative interface, and we wanted to get out there."

The company promises to make its program available as a download from Wednesday (UK time). The software is free, but a version capable of returning CD-quality costs $30.
