Rip CDs and convert audio files between various formats

FeyConverter is an audio toolkit which can convert files between formats, for instance (file types supported include MP3, MP4/M4A, Ogg Vorbis, AAC, Bonk and FLAC), rip CDs, create playlists and more.

And getting started with this seems easy enough. You can add files directly from a folder, or rip them from a CD, and both functions leave you with a list of tunes which you can review and play.

After that, things become a little more complicated than they need to be. There's no wizard here to walk you through the process of, say, converting a bunch of MP3's to WMA. Instead you'll find an MP3 encoder selected by default.

Explore the menus and you'll find an Encode > Start Encoding option which lists a bunch of supported formats, so you might think choosing the WMA option would ask you for any relevant settings. But no, it just starts encoding immediately.

Click Stop, and you can then use another option to view and configure the results you need. The program offers plenty of control here, at least, and when you're done, restarting the job will convert the files for you. (Although by default it'll dump them into a Documents\FeyConverter folder, which probably isn't what you need.)

There is useful functionality here, then, but the program's less than intuitive interface means you may not have the time or patience to figure out how to access it.

Please note, the program will by default install the "NetScout Toolbar" as well as its own code. If you don't want this, choose the Custom Installation option during setup and clear the relevant checkboxes.

Verdict:

FeyConverter supports plenty of audio formats and provides lots of control over the configuration process. The interface is awkward, though - you'll need patience to figure out how everything works

Spotlight: Free Full Software

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 (v11.0.6)

Free Full Commercial Software

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 is a compact, simple, but surprisingly feature-packed disc burning suite.

The program makes it easy to create simple data discs and audio CDs, for instance: just drag and drop your files onto the list area and you'll be burning the finished disc in a couple of clicks.

That's just the start, though. Burning Studio 2013 can also create data discs with customised, interactive multi-page menus, perfect if you'd like a more professional way to share and present the disc contents.

A built-in backup tool allows you to create backups which may be encrypted, compressed, and span several CDs, DVDs and Blu-rays.

And there are modules to create VCD or SVCD video projects; burn video DVDs or Blu-ray discs from prepared folders; create, browse or burn disc images (ISO, CUE/ BIN and Ashdisc formats are supported); copy discs, erase them, design and print disc covers, labels and booklets, and more.

The focus throughout is on ease of use, though, and so Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 remains very straightforward, whatever you're doing. Most disc projects are created via the same simple interface, and for the most part all you have to do is drag and drop the necessary files. But experts will find more advanced options are only a click away, and if you need to then you can set ISO and UDF version, enable Joliet, make a disc bootable and more.

Note the download here will take you to the Downloadcrew Software Store where you can download Burning Studio 2013.
