Ashampoo has announced the availability of Burning Studio 12, its flagship disc burning suite. And top of the new features list this time is probably the program’s improved ability to handle larger burning jobs.
Support for 100 and 128GB BDXL discs means you’re able to write much more data to an individual disc, for instance, and if there’s still too much data then the new Disc Spanning feature will automatically spread the job over as many discs as is required.
Elsewhere, audio disc handling is significantly improved. You can apply a host of Equalizer effects to individual tracks, for example (increase/ decrease bass, increase/ decrease heights, loudness, more). It’s now possible to burn audio CDs from CUE sheets, or rip CDs to FLAC or OGG files.
There are smaller, but still worthwhile improvements dotted around the program.
You’re now able to normalize the audio of video tracks, for instance. While the slideshow editor now allows you to apply Ken-Burns effects, or insert credits on the slide of your choice.
And of course you also get the obligatory interface revamp, which aims to make the program easier to use, while performance optimisations ensure it launches faster than ever before.
Ashampoo Burning Studio 12 remains an interesting alternative to some of the more bulky burning suites, then, being easy to use yet still packed with interesting functionality. The program can be yours for a special launch price of $39.99, and a 30-day trial version is available now.
