"Easy to use!"

August 24, 2016  |  By ithom

2016-08-24 11:14:12  |  By ithom

 |  Version: Not Found

Pros

I tried the 14 day freebee and it was easy to use converting audio recordings from my Android phone to MP3.

Cons

Beware though: price on line is US dollars - multiply that by about 1.31 or so and you get $31 Aussie dollars.

Summary

Now I have to explore their other audio editing software and how to download Soundcloud files

"Fantastic product"

February 26, 2016  |  By cheecharoni

2016-02-26 11:59:32  |  By cheecharoni

 |  Version: Not Found

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!"

January 20, 2016

2016-01-20 14:12:30

 |  Version: Not Found

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!

"Quick & Easy"

July 11, 2015  |  By 2ndAlto

2015-07-11 09:26:48  |  By 2ndAlto

 |  Version: Not Found

Pros

Easy, cheap, quick.
Slide sound files into software & press convert.
Remembers the destination folder (& all other settings).

Cons

I can't think of any cons.

Summary

I love this program and have been using it for years. Initially purchased it to convert proprietary Sony Dig. Voice Recorder files to WAV & MP3. Now I use it to convert Sibelius WAV files to MP3. It's quick, it's easy, and a solid performer.

"demo version"

May 31, 2015  |  By kkwellness

2015-05-31 13:09:43  |  By kkwellness

 |  Version: Not Found

Pros

works to convert wma files

Cons

deceptive practice.

Summary

I never read that this was a demo version. I converted a couple of songs a week ago I tried to convert 5 just now and, a screen popped telling you that I am using the trial version. And, when I tried to convert the files, it said I had purchase.

"Love it. Easy to use."

May 02, 2015

2015-05-02 18:16:55

 |  Version: Not Found

Pros

I can take my tapes, both casette and 8-track and record in WMA format, then use switch to convert to mp3. Great product. I use for home use only, as I am not a commercial enterprise.

Cons

none. No probles at all.

Summary

Great product, easy to use, and a big help in digitizing my music, which consists of over 400 vinyl albums, 500 8-tracks, and over 800 cassettes. Most of which go back to the early 60's and early 70's and late 80's. I love the program.

"Cant tell diff tween wma and this conversion in winamp"

April 01, 2015  |  By Sparkyroots

2015-04-01 14:01:23  |  By Sparkyroots

 |  Version: Not Found

Pros

Good quality conversion from wma (which my old phone wont read) to mp3. No audible difference between wma and the conversion this software did, across many genres, disco, bassy, pop and jazz!

Easy to download and trouble free in win 7 on 64 bit. I used the free version.

Cons

Only tried one experiment so far.

Summary

Lovely bit of software, thankyou.

Pros

it's all good!,..

Cons

I don't know?!.

Summary

This is one of only 3 software that I pay for, it's always done what I needed it for and never had any issues with it. Does what it's suppose to and it's easy to use. What else do you need or want?!, it's all good, really!.. I recommend it without hesitations. Cheers...

"Great Product"

January 27, 2015  |  By RF2ner

2015-01-27 11:01:14  |  By RF2ner

 |  Version: Not Found

Pros

Fast and easy to use.
It provides a wide selection of formats, both for importing and exporting the sound files.

Cons

I've been using an earlier version of the Switch Sound File Converter for a year now, and haven't found any Cons yet. It's a Great Product.

Summary

I use the Switch Sound File Converter mostly for shrinking the size of audio files which I use as a background in many of my e-mails. I also find it useful for converting sound files to a format that I can use as background on home video and picture DVDs.

"BEWARE OF NCH SOFTWARE!"

November 20, 2014

2014-11-20 09:39:39

 |  Version: Not Found

Pros

The free downloadable Switch Sound File Converter is a piece of junk. After you pay for it, it works fine UNTIL THEY RELEASE ANOTHER UPGRADE. Then, the "lifetime" license that you paid for will NOT work and you CANNOT revert to the pre-upgrade version either. So, you have to pay again for another "lifetime" license.

Cons

BEWARE: After you buy a "lifetime" license, the program will work UNTIL NCH SOFTWARE RELEASES ANOTHER UPGRADE of the Switch Sound File Converter Plus. Then, the "lifetime" license that you paid for will NOT work and you CANNOT revert to the pre-upgrade version either. So, you have to pay again for another "lifetime" license. If you want to pay them again every couple of years (the regular price of the program is $40.00), go ahead. I choose not to do that again: Burned once, twice shy.

Summary

See cons above. Very sharp business practices by this vendor, NCH Software!
