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.

"Super - especially if you need to convert a song of your own."

May 14, 2008  |  By WStephenScott

Pros

The software is Always there if you need it to be. And sometimes when a web site requires MP3, for example, you can easily convert anything that it is in now.

Cons

"Works great and gets better"

April 29, 2008  |  By cannman61

 |  Version: dBpoweramp Music Converter 12.4

Pros

Easy to convert multiple files

Cons

I do not like the new VBR ; I am more partial to being able to choose my setting. I always picked the 192kbps setting myself; and I like being able to choose my speed for MP3s.

"won't handle WMA licensed/protected online store downloaded music"

April 06, 2008  |  By wjazzer

 |  Version: dBpoweramp Music Converter 12.4

Pros

It works well for mp3 files.

Cons

Beware - even after you download dbPoweramps' WMA codec converter, it won't convert WMA protected files (any WMA music downloaded from online music stores). EZCDCreator's applications will do this, so dbPoweramp has no excuse. Also, they offer no tech support - only a very lame user forum (Yuck!)

"Great Product"

March 15, 2008  |  By jbaumhover

 |  Version: dBpoweramp Music Converter 12.4

Pros

I love it. It works great for converting files into formats that my media player can play back. I recently had to convert a large group of files from m4a to mp3. This program was able to convert all of it nearly perfectly in about the time it took me to download the music.

Cons

you have to download a ton of extensions just to get the conversions that you need
