QDesign has released MVP 1.2, the revised version of its cross-platform entertainment application.

MVP 1.2 is an all-in-one application for recording from CD to QDesign Music, MP3 and MP2 files. It can also playback digital music and videos, and manage playlists. It supports streaming and downloadable audio, video and multimedia content.

The upgrade includes new features, including the ability to convert between audio-file formats – such as Design Music, WAV, AIFF, MP2 and MP3. It can playback and encode/record support with QDesign’s industry standard MP2, and features expanded MP3 support with mode, sample rate and bit rate control.

MVP is free from mpvsite.com, but the MP3 and MP2 encoding functions only work for 30 days, after which an upgrade to unlimited encoding costs $19.95.
