Ashampoo Music Studio 4 Editor's Review

With Mp3 and music video downloads becoming easier owing to availability of high speed web access at cheap rates, millions of people find their PCs laden with gigabytes of audio files. These files can be of varying bitrates, formats and it becomes necessary to organize, edit or make CDs containing such media files. While studio setups may need high end and feature rich audio editor like Adobe Audition, home users and small editing setup owners can do with less expensive contenders. If you need an affordable and capable music editor that doubles up as audio CD creator, Ashampoo Music Studio can be a worthy choice. With this software you can edit audio files, rip music CDs, burn audio discs, convert music files without much issues.

Ashampoo Music Studio runs on Windows XP and subsequent OS versions. It will run smoothly if your PC has a powerful CPU, preferably multi core. You will also need to install Microsoft .Net 4.0 Framework to use this app. Installation gets completed within a few minutes and much user input is not required for it. However, if you do not choose custom installation, Ashampoo toolbar will be added to your web browser and default search engine will be replaced. The app is multi lingual though you need to download other languages packs post installation. The price is moderate and you can also use it in trial mode before licensing the app.

In this version, Ashampoo Music Studio has got a revamped interface. The sleek bluish interface is easy to learn and use. With support for multi-core CPUs, Navigation and operational speed has increased. The included tools are effective except organizer which discards everything once you stop file adding. While the Wave editor looks fine, it would have been better had the company added option for drag and drop. The app supports audio formats like WMA, mp3 and WAV. However, it still lacks support for AAC and iTunes .mp4 files.

Owing to the wizard like structure, working with Music Studio is cakewalk even for new users. Quality of ripped music is quite fine and you can set bit rate before the process starts. Apart from audio and MP3 disc, you can also make a mixed mode disc. However, occasional applications crashes can act as dampener.

As far as audio editing goes, there are not many tools in Music Studio. However, basic editing tasks like cross fade effect applications, mixing the tracks, altering track volume can be done easily. One cool feature of this app mix tape which lets you combine may tracks into a single audio file. Each track included in the track gets separated by crossfading, preventing chance of overlapping. It can even rip audio from video clips and formats like WMV, MPEG and AVI are supported.

Positive Points:
•    Moderate price, plenty of features.
•    Mixed mode disc creation.
•    Audio extraction from video files.
•    Low learning curve, intuitive interface.

Negative Points:
•    Basic audio editing tools.
•    Occasional application crashes occur.
•    Default installation bundles in bloatware.
•    No support for iTunes .mp4 and AAC files.

Conclusion:
Ashampoo Music Studio is a multipurpose app that lets you organize and manage audio files in many ways. It scores well in various audio handling tasks like converting, ripping audio CD or burning discs. The ease of use is commendable. However, there are some glitches that stop it from becoming a top contender in this segment. The app’s inability to drag and drop files is disappointing. Lack of support for iTunes .mp4 files is another such example. You can find many freeware contenders that outshine this app in audio editing department.

Rating: 3.5/5
