SonicMood v4.8.9

Create The Perfect Mood for The Holidays!

Normally: $12.95

ZOT Price: $6.95

Click to MacZOT Try Now  

SonicMood creates a soothing background of melodic tones when you don’t want the distraction of ordinary canned music. Each “Mood” is a blend of polyphonic stereo instrumentals with pleasing harmonies combined with the sounds of nature. Moods have a relaxing effect, the gentle sounds lying just below your consciousness.

SonicMood comes with 28 pre-defined Moods AND you can create your own! Each Mood is original and never repeats – you won’t find anything like this on a CD…

SonicMood includes nature sounds like rain, thunder, birds, and more. You can add your own, too. Up to 32 AIFF, MP3, MP4, etc., files can be played together with the sounds in each Mood. The “Mood Editor” allows for complete customization and creation of Moods. It’s “Ambient Music” at its best.

SonicMood is a Universal Binary and compatible with Panther, Tiger, and Leopard (10.3.9 thru 10.5.x). It features an “iTunes-like” look and familiar operation.

System Requirements:

  • Mac OS X v10.3.9 thru 10.5.x (PPC or Intel; Universal Binary)
  • Quicktime v6 or higher
  • Minimum 1024 x 768 pixel resolution display
  • Speakers or headphones
  • Best results will be achieved with a 700 MHz G4 or faster

  • What people say about SonicMood:

    “Only those without a soul will fail to appreciate how this little gem can transform one’s immediate environment into a veritable Garden of Paradise. It’s absolutely breathtaking!

    At $10, it’s an absolute bargain. Definitely worth two or three times that price. Been using it for years, now, and it’s one of the very few software programs that has definitely enhanced the quality of my life.”

    “This outstandingly beautiful creation is a true balm for the soul. It generates soothing, centering, healing soundscapes that will enhance the quality of your life.

    The developer must, indeed, be in touch with the Source of all Creation, for Sonic Moods is a true gift from On High. It glistens like a diamond lotus in the morning sun.

    While Sonic Moods has been with us for a while, if you’ve never come across it before consider yourself blessed, for it is a true find.

    This wonderful developer is always seeking ways to make it better and better, and at the paltry sum of $10, it is priceless. I humbly bow before this very gifted soul.”

    “Truly the best relaxation software around. I’ve used it through a few versions and have never been disappointed that I registered it. I’ve had communications with the author and he’s been responsive and quick to reply. While the software works ‘out of the box’ it has a tremendous ability for customization to one’s personal tastes. Truly a great app and well worth the price!”

    “Rulle Rusk here. Last year I made some comment about this app being pointless. Since then my girlfriend has left me, i lost my job and my dog died. I have moved to Miami Beach and live a quiet, tranquil on the beach with SonicMood running around the clock.

    I was wrong. My apologies.”

    Language Aid
    A System-wide Text Lookup Engine

    Normally: $20.00

    ZOT Price: $10.00

    Click to MacZOT Try Now  

    Language Aid is a tool that you can use to grab text from almost anywhere in the operating system.  You can grab text from web pages, text documents, buttons, menus, finder items and many other places.  Once the text is grabbed, it is sent to a plugin module to be processed and the results are displayed to you.  Language Aid eliminates the long process of: copying text, opening a web browser (or other program), loading up a web service, pasting the text and clicking a button. 

    Example Uses:

  • Language translations using Google Translate.
  • Japanese dictionary lookups using Jim Breen’s WWWJDIC.
  • Chinese dictionary lookups using the MDBG.
  • Wikipedia lookups.
  • Quick Google access.
  • Ways To Grab Text:

    There are three ways that you can grab text from your system and pass it to Language Aid. You can hover your mouse cursor over most text in the system and hit the lookup trigger (a customizable key combo or mouse click). You can select text and use the contextual menu plugin in supporting applications. You can also use the Language Aid system service on selected text.

    Features include:

  • Unlimited potential through easy to create plugin modules.
  • Customizable lookup trigger to either a mouse button or key combination.
  • Access to text in the system that may not be selectable or copyable.
  • Visually scaleable results.
  • Quick access and dismissal. It is there when you need it but stays out of your way.
  • Language Aid requires Mac OS X 10.4 or higher and many plugins require an Internet connection.

    Full version registration does not use a serial number and is for usage on one computer at a time (you may contact Aoren Software if you need to change which computer you use Language Aid on).
