Editors' Review

by   / January 18, 2010

We see a lot of audio converters, and most of them are quite similar: they're easy to use, they convert files as they're suppose to, and they don't do much of anything that really impresses us. Akram Audio Converter is another entry into this field of software, but we're happy to report that it does have some characteristics that put it ahead of the competition.

We liked that the program starts with a welcome screen to help you choose which kind of converter you need to use. You are given a choice between a Real Audio Converter, Media Audio Converter, Easy Audio Converter, and Audio CD Ripper. Mousing over each of these options displays a tooltip describing what kinds of files can be converted. The actual conversion interface is quite intuitive: you simply choose your source files, select an output format and destination, adjust audio settings as needed, and perform the conversion. The program's built-in Help file is brief but adequate. The thing that sets Akram Audio Converter apart from similar programs is the sheer number of formats that it can handle. We see a lot of programs that, for example, can convert MP3 files to a handful of different formats. Akram Audio Converter is one of the most comprehensive programs we've seen in this regard, allowing users to convert to and from virtually all popular audio formats, as well as quite a few that aren't as common.

Akram Audio Converter is free to try, but the trial version has a 14-use limitation and only supports conversion of one file at a time. The program installs a desktop icon without asking but uninstalls cleanly. We recommend this program to all users.
