    "does what it supposed to do"

    February 25, 2011  |   By ProDigit

    Pros

    does what it supposed to do
    batch processing possible
    normalizing possible

    Cons

    processes only 1 file at a time
    no extended options like file renaming, adding or removing silences
    Only converts mp3 to wav, nothing else.

    Summary

    small program, which could easily be made as a standalone executable, instead of installing in windows.
    I don't particularly like these type of small files to be installed on an operating system, as they clutter the system.
    It would have been better to create a single exec file that would do this action.
    It would be nice if the program supported direct show filters, so that all installed codecs can be used to de/encode files to the other format.

    It would be a good program if I could directly encode mp3 to ogg for instance. I use this program mainly to encode mp3 to ogg, or flac to ogg, with wav as a middle process, as I don't have software that can do this function.

    doing things this way gets it rid of tags.

    So far no spyware detected by Norton Anti Virus, and runs perfectly fine on a windows XP!

    Pro: no hiss noted! Some people are always ********, not knowing it's their own crappy laptop speakers hissing. The decoded files are CD quality, IDENTICAL to the input file quality.
    To some user reviews here:
    THIS PROGRAM WILL NOT MAGICALLY MAKE YOUR BAD MP3 FILES SOUND BETTER, FORGET THAT!

    Pro: Free, no limitations, no 30day trials, no spyware, no virusses or trojans!

    con: batch processing only possible within same directory.
    con: no tag editing possible or automatic file renaming (not possible to autorename the output file to eg: track number - author - album - song title . extension; or "%n - %a - %T - %e" in many encoding programs).
