Growing up the in the 1990s meant that I came of age in an era before iPads, Pandora, and streaming cloud music, when Zunes and Walkman MP3 players weren't just shiny paperweights and the only way to get exposed to new music was either via MTV, the radio--and if you were really desperate, VH1 or the Disney Channel. Fortunately I was quick to embrace the Internet age with its promise of bringing people together; that is a great thing, but all I really cared about was the potential of getting music from these people. But that only left me with a copious amount of songs from various sources, all in different file formats. Before the age of iTunes, trying to sync song files from a CD to my Jukebox and later Walkman MP3 player was an experience akin to stubbing your toes against the edge of a table. If only I knew then that some time in the near future we would be able to convert between formats so easily and readily, with Axara Audio Converter.
