Pazera Free Audio Extractor is an easy-to-use program that lets users extract digital audio from a variety of video sources. The program's intuitive interface and versatility make it a great choice for pulling audio tracks from video recordings.

The program's interface is well designed and fairly self explanatory, and we had no trouble getting started with it. Users simply select the videos they want to extract audio from, choose a destination folder, and specify the output format. Pazera does the rest. It handles most major and a few minor audio formats, including MP3, WAV, and OGG. You can adjust the bit rate, sample frequency, and channels, as well as set time and size limits for files. The program quickly extracts audio information and saves it in the specified location and format. It even supports batch processing, which makes it easy to extract audio from multiple videos at the same time. Pazera doesn't have a Help file, which is always a drawback, but the program is easy enough to figure out without any guidance. Overall, we like Pazera Free Audio Extractor a lot; it's among the best we've seen of this type of program, and we've seen a few. It's not particularly fancy, but it has some useful features, and it's extremely easy to use.

Pazera Free Audio Extractor is, as the name suggests, free. The program comes as a ZIP file and is accessibly after extraction with no need for installation. We highly recommend this program to all users.

Developer's Description

Pazera Free Audio Extractor is a universal audio converter. The program allows extraction of audio tracks from audio and video files without loss of sound quality or conversion to MP3, AAC, AC3, E-AC3, Ogg-Opus, Ogg-Vorbis, WMA, FLAC, M4A-AAC, M4A-ALAC, WV (WavPack), MKA-Opus, CAF-Opus, AIFF or WAV.

To convert audio streams to MP3 the application uses the latest version of the LAME encoder. The program supports encoding with a constant bit rate - CBR, average bitrate - ABR and variable bit rate - VBR (based on LAME presets).

The application supports over 70 audio and video formats, including AVI, MP3, FLV, MP4, MKV, MPG, MOV, RM, 3GP, WMV, WebM, VOB, FLAC, AAC, M4A.

In addition, the program allows you to split input files based on chapters (often found in audiobooks). The program has a number of predefined settings (profiles) specially designed for novice users. While more advanced users can customize audio encoding parameters used by encoder: audio bitrate, sampling frequency, audio channels, audio volume. The application allows to extract/convert full audio track or selected range only.

The application interface is very simple and user-friendly. To convert or extract audio tracks from audio/video files, just drag & drop them into main window, select proper profile from list, and click the "Convert" button. If the audio quality is poor, increase audio bitrate.

Supported input formats: AVI, MPG, WMV, MKV, MOV, FLV, RMVB, M2TS, VOB, MP4, 3GP, WEBM, DIVX, XVID, MPEG, MPE, ASF, M4V, QT, 3GPP, 3G2, 3GP2, 3GA, MKA, SWF (uncompressed), F4V, F4P, F4A, F4B, DAT, RM, OGM, OGV, AMV, DVR-MS, MTS, TS, HEVC, WTV, WAV, MP3, AC3, AAC, MPC, MPA, MP2, WMA, FLAC, SHN, APE, OGG, M4A, WV, AMR, AIFF, OPUS, CAF, VIDEO, M4R, MP4V, MP1, M4B, OGA, DTS, GSM, QCP, RA, VQF, THD, TRUEHD, TRUE-HD, DTSHD, DTS-HD, AVS, EAC3, TTA.
