German multimedia developer Ashampoo has announced the release of Ashampoo Music Studio 5, its all-in-one music management suite.
Improvements include an extended Analyze tool which checks your chosen audio files for common problems (missing tags, incorrect file extensions) and corrects them in a few clicks.
New support for Ogg’s Opus format means Music Studio 5 can open Opus files, and convert them to or from MP3, Ogg, WAV or FLAC.
Enhancements include cover art support when ripping discs and in the tag editor, as well as more customisable disc copying (you can now choose which tracks to copy).
Elsewhere, a revised Organizer renames or moves files based on their tags, and there’s an audio editor, a recorder, a normalisation tool, a cover art and inlay designer, and more.
Ashampoo also reports that there are “many technical improvements under the hood”, and the suite now comes in a redesigned and simplified interface. (We’re not sure it’s a great improvement, but at least the company hasn’t just churned out yet another Windows 8-like clone.)
Ashampoo Music Studio 5 is priced at $29.99. A 10-day-trial is available now, and that can be extended to 40 days if you register the program.
