Editors' Review

Download.com Staff Dec 18, 2014

From burning music and images to copying data and creating cover art, Ashampo Burning Studio 15 manages to offer enough features and options to make more experienced users happy while keeping it all accessible.

Pros

Clean layout: Ashampoo Burning Studio's initial window presents the eight main options clearly under four categories, such as Burn or Design & Print. There are also links to buy the software or see others by the same publisher under Service. A new window opens for each of the options, and they all have the same basic file menu at the top, over the main window.

Flexible process: For the most part, novice users will need to make few if any changes to the default settings for projects like ripping a music CD. Ashampoo Burning Studio uses a wizard-like approach, so you aren't overwhelmed with choices in multistep processes. Advanced settings are easily accessed, but they don't get in the way.

Functional output files: From music files to image files, the duplicates worked just as well as the originals.

Extensive Help files: If you get stuck or don't understand a specific feature, the Help files are well-written and very helpful.

Cons

Cross-selling: It's a minor issue, but during the installation, you're offered another software to check your drivers. Fortunately, the default setting is "No, thanks," so there's nothing you need to watch out for. And other than links to buy this and other software in the main window, there are no other product pushes.

Bottom Line

Ashampoo Burning Studio 15 gets high marks for its ease of use and features. It's not a free application, and there are some decent freeware alternatives available, but its overall approach and flexibility make it well worth the cost.

Editors' note: This is a review of the full version of Ashampoo Burning Studio 15. The trial version is limited to 30 days.

Developer's Description

The new Ashampoo Burning Studio 23 is a powerful disc burning software that burns data, movies and music to CD, DVD and Blu-ray discs. In addition, the program boasts extensive multimedia features. You can produce and edit movies and slideshows or create video discs. Custom animated menus, opening and closing credits as well as customizable auto-play settings offer loads of exciting possibilities. Resulting files and discs are playable on almost any device thanks to built-in support for popular formats like MPEG-4, H.264, AAC, MP3 and WMA. Not only does the program also create MP3 and standard audio discs but also supports disc-ripping with automatic track naming and cover search. The integrated cover editor makes it particularly easy to create custom covers, booklets and inlays or disc labels. Thanks to disc spanning, data can be spread across multiple discs automatically and scratch protection ensures readability even for damaged discs. The backup section features smart planning options to back up data from cellphones and tablets to any medium. Version 23 is fully Windows 11 compatible and features an extensive audiobook module that takes care of common issues like incorrect sort orders and conversion errors. The new intermediate buffering allows users to create compilations based on multiple file sources, e.g. greatest hits CDs, without tedious module switching. In addition, the cover search tool has been redesigned to allow for more user control. Finally, users can now extract audio tracks from discs faster than ever before and with minimal manual input, thanks to quick ripping.
