Editors' Review

+

Switch Sound File Converter Plus allows you to convert common file types to a wide variety of audio formats.

Pros

Great selection of outputs: There is a very comprehensive list of audio output formats that you can convert to with this app.

Quick conversion: The app converted audio to different formats more quickly than many other methods that are also available for free, such as completing a conversion using iTunes.

Good settings control: The free app generously offers professional-level control over the encoding of your new files. You can specify your bit rate or adjust the quality, as you require.

Cons

Limited input formats: The program only supports MP3 and WAV input formats after a trial period. But if deal with FLAC or AAC files on a regular basis, you're out of luck unless you pay.

Bottom Line

Switch Sound File Converter Plus is a great tool for snappy conversion to different audio formats. It is a small, straightforward program that lets you convert your audio files without weighing you down with needless features and options.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of Switch Sound File Converter Plus 4.65.

"Fantastic product"

Pros

Converts files with icons I don't even recognize, would have tossed, thought to drop em in the Switch window, and... Holy Moley THAT'S what happened to such and such! (re odd white file icons that qualify under the window Type heading as: File. Who knew? Not me. For dilettantes like me, with basic pc use skills, and far less than basic re file formats/types/conversion etc... the software is my hero. (And NCH's WavePad sound editor is equally amazing)

Cons

I really can't think of any

Summary

I've used the free versions now of three NCH products, and went ahead to purchase the licensed versions, and I have been using Switch and WavePad for some time now, and no problems, like with pretty much any other software purchases...So many paid/licensed downloaded products upgrade you out of them so fast, or default to the 'free ver EVERY time licensed ver is launched, compelling repeated sagas of jumping through hoops to run the licensed- & co support gives weeks of email run around (like, cough...DUPLICATE-cough... FILE- ack...FINDER...cuoughackkggh). Anyway, I hope I didn't break any posting rules by giving both Switch Sound Plus and WavePad two thumbs up in this review, but cudos to NCH all around.

"Solved my elusive problem!"

 |  Version: Switch Plus Edition 4.88

Pros

Affordable
Ease-of-use

Cons

None worth mentioning

Summary

I had a problem I couldn't solve in tranferring Amazon music to my Cadillac CTS hard drive. Reading through forum threads, I learned that bit rate on Amazon is variable and Cadillac required fixed 256 bit rate. This solved my issue and now all my music is on my car's hard drive. Very happy!
