SonicStage Review

Felix Cheng

Sony's software for its MP3 Walkman devices


A review of SonicStage by Felix Cheng

Note: This program contains a mandatory installer. SonicStage was actually a failed attempt by Sony to create a proprietary music format while fighting against Apple.

Although there have been changes to the way Sony deals with file formats, SonicStage is still sometimes required for owners of older model MP3 players produced by Sony. The earlier models only supported the SonicStage format but Sony seems to have loosened up on that.

Unlike competing programs like iTunes, SonicStage does not contain any of the pretty graphics you might have expected.

The program is pretty slow and often produces errors which has largely led to Sony abandoning the project. Even their Sony Connect music service seems to have been shuttered.

In the end: Only use this program if you must, e.g. you have an older Sony MP3 Walkman.

SonicStage features and highlights:
  • Sync MP3 collections with your Walkman
  • Copying and usage restrictions
  • Native support for MP3 files
  • Dynamic playlists, playback count and transfer count
  • Export for ATRAC devices
  • Tracks may be converted at specified bitrates
  • Tracks may be recorded on Hi-MD devices
  • Album covert art is downloaded and displayed in application

SonicStage is licensed as Freeware for Windows (32-bit and 64-bit) operating system / platform from mp3 player software without restrictions. SonicStage 4.3 is available to all software users as a free download (Freeware).
