dBpowerAMP Music Converter

CNET Editors' review

This mostly standard audio utility simply converts files and rips CDs, but it works without a hitch. dBpowerAmp Music Converter has separate interfaces for extracting audio from discs and batch converting tunes. In our tests, the program showed good speed. It can even rip some protected audio CDs and includes a basic player.

It queries CD information from the Web and can automatically create subfolders and name tracks. To keep the download size small, it only includes MP3 (LAME) and WAV codecs, though you can easily download and install additional components from the publisher's site. Similar to other utilities in this genre, dBpowerAmp Music Converter lets you determine the audio quality of your new files, though it also offers an ample number of presets.

Also, unlike some competing programs, this demo will let you rip or transform as many files as you like for a full month. Most people who rip and convert audio files occasionally will find something to like about dBpowerAmp Music Converter, particularly novices.

    "Not good for me."

    November 11, 2013  |   By damanara

    Version: dBpowerAMP Music Converter 14.4

    Pros

    It is a good tool. Works very well. I was planning to buy it.

    Cons

    When I installed it, CONDUIT took over all my browsers and it was a nightmare to get rid of it!

    Summary

    I don't recommend it, sorry!

    "LOVE this software"

    November 1, 2013  |   By pb930

    Version: dBpowerAMP Music Converter 14.4

    Pros

    Been using it for a year now and it is so fast when ripping. Always pulls the album cover image and has lots of ripping options like saving to different formats and locations all in one rip. I use Flac and mp3.

    Cons

    Can't think of any...

    Summary

    Great software for ripping and storing.

    "Solid Performer"

    October 29, 2013  |   By sugartown42

    Version: dBpowerAMP Music Converter 14.4

    Pros

    This is a great tool. I've used it for many years and used it mainly for converting wav and mp3 files; some cda files. Music. it has done a great job in every case.

    Cons

    There is only one complaint for this software. I bought the package about 3 years ago. My computer crashed recently and I lost the program. Now I see that the package costs $38. if I used it every day it would surely justify that expense. However, I don't. so, now am searching for an alternative choice.

    Summary

    Go for this if you use it frequently. you won't be disappointed. but, look for another option if you would use infrequently.

    "Not recommended for purchase"

    May 4, 2012  |   By gomperigbot

    Version: dBpowerAMP Music Converter 14.2

    Pros

    Batch converts wma files

    Cons

    Bought the software and converted my music library to WAV with it. Worked most of the time.

    Uninstalled because Win7 reported it was using *16GB* of HDD. Went to re-install and couldn't locate the serial number. The Illustrate site reports that there aren't any orders found for my email address.

    No prob - I email customer service. Mr. dBAmp himself sends a 1 sentence reply (no joke) saying they don't keep records past 6 months for 'security reasons'. Deep breath, I make a friendly reply asking if they email confirmations - you know, he can tell me what the sending address is - I'll just find it myself and I'm set. Easy.

    Nope. He sends me another snarky 1 sentence reply saying they 'email confirmations twice'. That's it. It's a slightly easier for him to just tell me to eff off, so he does.

    Don't give this joker your money. I'm out what I paid. Many other products do this sort of thing - choose those instead.

    "Faster than other programs. Got big job done faster."

    January 24, 2012  |   By Mattlieber

    Version: dBpowerAMP Music Converter 14.2

    Pros

    *program shows that it is using full capacity (quad core) of my I-5 CPU to blaze through conversions
    *converted 200+ gig library from WAV to FLAC in many fewer hours than WinAMP, MediaMonkey
    *allows you to convert files within a folder and maintain file hierarchy but . . .

    Cons

    *I have not yet mastered the settings so a lot of my tracks are showing up in other separate folders
    *Album art on 2/3 of my CD folders did not get converted over, very possibly due to my own error. Still this has not proven seamless or easy as I would have liked.

    "Doesn't work if files are saved to computer"

    November 11, 2011  |   By MsGail2u

    Version: dBpowerAMP Music Converter 14.2

    Pros

    Since the software didn't work the way I needed it to, I have no pros.

    Cons

    Doesn't work if files are saved to computer. Must have files on CD. The files I wanted to convert was an loaned audiobook that I had previously saved to my computer. I got the program when I realized that I had saved the wrong files.

    Clean and simple.

    "Excellent Program"

    October 15, 2011  |   By Tymtrvlr1

    Version: dBpowerAMP Music Converter 14.2

    Pros

    Love using it the interface is almost seamless. Almost so easy a novice could use it

    Cons

    Although it's easy to use and understand a few areas could use a little clearer instructions. Before starting the process chosen read the instructions carefully.
