Editors' Review

+
This media jukebox stands out in a crowded field. Its handy and attractive interface allows you to choose backgrounds, change the transparency of panels, and even tune the resolution of buttons. You can use music visualizations as backgrounds. Most operations take no more than one click. The tray icon lets you access basic controls without opening the main window. Virtuosa supports most music and video formats using plug-ins. To smooth transitions between tracks, you can cross-fade separately for playing, seeking, and stopping. The program offers several tools for organizing your music collection. You can view playlists with more or less detail, as a simple list, or in a tree. You can even display an icon for each song. The program gives you full control over naming ripped tracks and arranging them in folders. Virtuosa quickly extracts audio from CDs to MP3, WAV, or WMA files and converts sound among formats, though advanced users may find its conversion settings insufficient. Music aficionados will nonetheless find a lot to love here.

    "Confusing"

    July 24, 2007   |   By jsneeringer

    Version: Virtuosa 5.2

    Pros

    Nothing that I found, since I could not get it to work.

    Cons

    It is buggy and confusing.

    I wanted to rip the sound from a DVD to an MP3. tried to follow the instructions from ripping with track conversion, as described on page 3 of the "Getting Started" document. I right clicked as instructed, expecting to be offered a choice of formats. Instead, it asked for an output directory and was ready to begin ripping. I specified an output directory and told it to start. I was surprised to find there was nothing in the output directory, but it turned out it had put the output in the default directory instead of the one I specified. Why ask me for a directory if you're not going to use it.

    The "Getting Started" document had a picture of the format conversion dialog, but did not tell me how to get to it.

    I tried the help, but the index took me to page that must have been 1000 lines long, and there was no way to search within the page except y manually reading all of it.

    Next I discovered "Convert" on the "File" menu (not mentioned in the "Getting Started"), and was able to set the output format I wanted, at which point it finally informed me that it cannot do what I want.

    At that point, I uninstalled it, so I don't know what the rest is like.

    At the very least the documentation is atrocious and somtimes wrong.

    "Great program!"

    June 08, 2006   |   By NotoriousReviewer

    Version: Virtuosa 5.2

    Pros

    I like this product because I can burn more than 100 mp3 files to a cd, and play it on my car stereo, also I love it because it said 30 days trial, just change the month everytime that your trial ends!

    Cons

    Trial period is bad, but is ok just change the month when it ends to the month when you install it! :-)
