    "Works but hits you with spam"

    April 27, 2013  |   By Petrostman


    Intuitive, easy to use


    Trial period is only 24 hours; not long enough to examine all the features. Contains ad popups that appear at regular intervals even after you purchase the full version. I hate that!!! I don't like paying for spyware, or even if it's free.


    Don't buy this unless you like to be harrassed by adware when you're just trying to edit some audio files.

    You're right, Petrostman. I've had the same problems: the program installs a lot of unasked software and it's almost not possible to deinstall it. And I also saw that it didn't stop with trying to install unwanted software.

    It's a complaint by many people who installed the program. So I don't understand why NCH in their reaction here, states that they don't know what you are talking about. I'm sure they know very well what they are doing.
