This is the most recent version of Media Rack I am aware of. The
advent of Windows 95, coupled with the Fraunhofer codec war, and
the trending away from visually large rack displays towards
button bar and system tray launchers (the "rack" novelty wore off)
reduced the viability of this product.
Media Rack installs and behaves well in either Windows 3.1 or
Windows 95 (it is Windows 95 aware, and chooses which system
files to install accordingly).
Absolutely nothing special to note when installing: Just click
on SETUP.EXE, and it will be done within moments.
No serial keys or registration to enter, no timeouts - just use and
Often referred to as the best designed, most tightly coded and
reliable audio suite of the time. Willow Pond used and adhered
to the Microsoft multimedia libraries, which meant it behaved
well with other applications (on Microsoft's "Approved List",
they were assigned the identifier "MM_WILLOWPOND").
Media Rack and other Willow Pond products were widely used by
OEMs who bundled the software with their audio and video cards.
Willow Pond also offered their products (some with more
advanced feature sets) directly to the consumer market.
Media Rack provides a CD Player, MIDI Player, WAV Player,
Digital Clock, Volume and Mixer controls - all in a vertical
stack - just like a high-end stereo component system.
- CD Player handles both audio and video CDs.
- Click on the digital clock and it swiches from 24 to 12 hour
time formats. Set alarms, just like the one on your nightstand.
- Click on the clock's display and it will "speak" the time to
you in a very human-like voice.
- MIDI and Wav Player can play a single file, or use custom
playlists you create.
- The Printer Icon lets you drag & drop any document for
- Master volume and Mixer controls set and keep audio levels.
- Display them all, or just the ones you use most frequently.
Some OEMs that used Willow Pond's Media Rack (and other titles)
included: Hewlett Packard, Diamond, Acer, DCS, OPTi, Pionex,
Analog Devices and Zoltrix.
