Editors' Review

Download.com Staff Oct 25, 2014

Ashampoo Music Studio is an affordable all-in-one music software solution that can play, manage, analyze, record, edit, extract, and burn high-quality MP3s and other audio; create mixtapes and CD covers; and more.

Pros

Extended free trial: Free registration extends Ashampoo Music Studio's ten-day free trial to a full 40 days, including full support and other advantages.

Media Center look: Music Studio resembles Windows Media Center in look and layout, with its easy-to-read large lettering and horizontal scrolling.

Stereo system: Ashampoo Music Studio essentially turns your PC into an audio component that organizes your music library, creates mixtapes, extracts and burns audio, edits files, and creates, edits, and prints CD covers.

Cons

Renaming: The Organize tool can rename and even move files, so be careful how you apply it if you're evaluating Music Studio.

Record: The Record feature doesn't offer a system audio option, though high-quality options include DirectShow and WASAPI.

Video: Limited video capabilities might prompt you to opt for a more comprehensive (and expensive) home media solution.

Bottom Line

Ashampoo Music Studio is affordable, nicely laid out, feature-rich, and works as well as pricier standalone music servers.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of Ashampoo Music Studio 5.0.4.6.

Developer's Description

Ashampoo Music Studio 8 is music editing software that comes with eight dedicated modules to edit and organize audio files. This includes recording, cutting, converting, and burning them to disc. Disc ripping comes with an automatic online cover search to fill in song titles and cover art and can be greatly sped up, thanks to quick ripping. Ashampoo Music Studio 8 can also bring order to music collections by renaming and arranging them into folders based on a fully customizable naming scheme. The music software also lets users produce, mix and trim MP3s and other audio formats. Files can be converted, shared, analyzed and normalized with great ease.

The built-in audio editor supports up to three audio tracks to easily process both songs and audio books. "Edit Cover" offers a fast and easy route to designing covers and inlays and comes with multiple templates and customizable design options. DJ Mix Tape turns songs into harmonious mixtapes with the help of speed analyses and customizable crossfades. Version 8 supports quick audio trimming and greatly simplified splitting of audio files, e.g. MP3s, into smaller segments. Keyboard shortcuts have been added, along with context-sensitive cheat sheets, to accelerate work flows across the board. The music editor has been refined for better usability and folder templates have been added to facilitate the organization of music collections into well-formed folder structures.
