    "Worked perfectly, quick and easy"

    November 18, 2006  |   By theperfectk


    I installed it using a 'runas' command, and that worked fine. I then ran it as a user (not as an administrator) immediately, and it worked great (which I feel is a good thing).

    For editing audio, I only want to edit some unruly MP3's I have, and I was able to learn the program and finish the editing in under 5 minutes.

    To export to MP3, you must have the lame encoder dll's available.

    Always assume your readers are naive--explain everything. It would have been an excellent review were it not so confusing.
