Sonic Stage has been around since the first Walkman-branded digital music players shipped in the late 1990s.

Sonic Stage® users are requested to download the security update program in accordance with the following procedures.
Version of Sonic Stage® subject to security update Description of update This security update program fixes a potential buffer overflow when importing certain malicious play list (m3u) files that could cause the above listed versions of Sonic Stage® to crash and execute an arbitrary code.
Originally criticised for its user-unfriendliness, the tool has been updated by Sony a number of times and was finally looking right when the consumer electronics giant launched Connect Player.
The new release integrates some Connect Player features into Sonic Stage, such as the former's Artist Link feature, which generates a random playlist from a given band or singer. The software will support AAC tracks, saved as .m4a, .3gp and .mp4 files, though songs with DRM protection will remain unplayable.
Sonic Stage CP will be available as a free download from the end of the month, Sony said.
