MAGIX Audio Cleaning Lab 2013
Enhance your old recordings by removing clicks, crackles, noise and more

Transferring your old analogue recordings to a digital format can seem like a great idea - until you listen to the results, when you'll probably find you've picked up plenty of hiss, crackles and other noise along with the original track.

Don't worry, though; even if your source track is very poor quality (an old cassette, say, or an MP3 which has been compressed too many times) you don't have to live with poor results. Point MAGIX Audio Cleaning Lab 2013 at your recordings and it'll work to remove crackling, clicks, hiss and other noise. You can then apply a stereo processor, graphic equalizer and other mastering tools to improve your sound quality even further, before exporting your work in a digital format to protect it from further damage.

Getting started is reasonably easy, as the program asks you to decide exactly what it is you'd like to do: restore a vinyl recording, clean tape sound, optimize an audio book, edit digital files, and so on. Choose the appropriate option and MAGIX Audio Cleaning Lab 2013 will configure all its tools and presets to suit your needs.

And the program's Cleaning and Mastering agents are just as straightforward, automatically analysing your track, and making suitable recommendations. All you have to do is listen to the new version, and click "Apply" if you think it sounds better.

This is just the start, though. You can also apply a host of individual tools - the DeClicker, DeHisser, DeCrackler, DeNoiser, DeClipper and more - while adjusting all their individual strengths to suit your needs. Every tool has further settings you can tweak, and there are all kinds of other options on offer here. If you're an audio novice then this can quickly become quite complicated, but fortunately you'll only see this level of complexity if you go looking for it, and MAGIX Audio Cleaning Lab 2013 also has some plenty of help available, should you need it.

Once the audio cleaning is over, though, life becomes much simpler again. And all you have to do is use the program's Export options to save your tracks as an audio file (WAV, MP3, MP3 Surround, WMA, AIFF, OGG Vorbis, FLAC and AAC are supported), or burn them to disc. So although there can be some complications here and there, MAGIX Audio Cleaning Lab 2013 is on balance very easy to use, and if you need a hassle-free way to clean up your audio tracks then it could be the ideal solution.

Verdict:

A powerful audio cleaner with lots of tweaks and tools, yet which remains generally straightforward and easy to use

WhatsApp Messenger 2.17.82

Free Full Commercial Software

WhatsApp Messenger is the world's most popular instant messaging app for smartphones.

You can use it to send and receive text and voice messages, photos, videos, even call your friends in other countries, and because it uses your phone's internet connection it might not cost you anything at all (depending on whether you'll pay data charges).

It's easy to set up and use. There's no need to create and remember new account names or pins because it works with your phone number, and uses your regular address book to find and connect you with friends who use WhatsApp already.

You can talk one-to-one or in group chats, and because you're always logged in there's no way to miss messages. Even if your phone is turned off, WhatsApp will save your messages and display them as soon as you're back online.

There's plenty more (location sharing, contact exchange, message broadcasting) and the app is free for a year, currently $0.99/ year afterwards.
