MP3tunes Launches AJAX-Powered Online Music Locker

Oboe Free Includes A Full-Featured Web Interface From Which Users Can Enjoy Their Music Or Playlists

Online music provider MP3tunes launched Oboe Free, a full-featured music locker with free online music storage. Oboe Free gives music lovers access to their own music collection on any computer or device. With free space for users to keep their favorite music and playlists, Oboe Free holds up to 1000 songs. Oboe Free is also accessible for listening and syncing through a growing number of Internet-capable devices and services.

Oboe Free includes a full-featured web interface from which users can enjoy their music or playlists, making it ideal for listening at work or school. The Oboe Locker comes with Oboe Sync software, enabling easy syncing of music from a user's computer to their Locker.

In addition to Oboe Free, MP3tunes also offers two other versions of the Oboe Locker with more storage and features designed for music fans: Oboe Premium features unlimited music storage and accommodates much larger size song files for just $39.95 per year. Oboe Basic features twice the storage capacity of Oboe Free for only $19.95 per year. All levels of Oboe include unlimited user Sideloading, moving free music available on the web to a Locker.

The Oboe Locker is compatible with most music file formats including .mp3, .wma (Windows Media), .aac (iTunes) and .ogg. A user-friendly interface displays artists, albums, tracks and playlists that can be streamed at 192 kbps. A sophisticated music manager built using Asynchronous JavaScript and XML (AJAX) technologies makes it possible to pause, skip, repeat tracks, shuffle, create playlists, label music and control volume all directly within the Web page without requiring any software be installed.

"We want MP3tunes to be the place the world accesses their music," says Michael Robertson, CEO of MP3tunes. "The Oboe Music Locker gives listeners the ability to enjoy their music library on any computer or device, worldwide. Oboe customers are discovering the importance of enjoying their own music through their mobile phone, DVR or computers."
