This is a (d)encoder/player tool for Ogg Vorbis audio files. It handles more than enough loss-less compression methods:

  • FLAC
  • Monkey Audio
  • OptimFROG
  • LPAC

So what other features are there? oggdropXPd is able to create m3u playlists on the fly for you.

It is also able to rename and auto-tag your encoded audio. All you have to do with this tool is run it, and drag your audio files to the screen.

The drag-and-drop method sounds very easy, and of course it is easy in use. But do not think this tool is for beginners only.

You can change settings and parameters for the encoder.

I’ve been using this tool for the last couple of days and it truthfully met my needs. The drag-and-drop feature really convinced me to use it for Ogg Vorbis audio conversions.

The interface is very user-friendly and changing settings is just as easy, cause of the drag-and-drop interface. Tuning the encoder settings is not essential by default but the option still exists. The output is excellent quality. And I haven’t found faulty tags from the auto-tagging feature yet, so I am quite happy with that.

And last, but definitely not least. oggdropXPd is freeware! This is one of the best freeware audio converters out there.

Adobe software has two products for audio editing; Audition and Soundbooth. Some of you might already know one, or both, products. I am here reviewing Soundbooth.

For this review I used Soundbooth CS4. It is sold as a standalone product and part of the CS4 suite. It costs around 200 USD and 80 for a upgrade. One of the goals for the developers for the CS4 suite was to make the interfaces universal, and thus making working between several Adobe products easier. The interface now has panels which you can drag all over the screen to create the perfect interface for your goal.

I have been working with both audio products from Adobe for a while now, and when I updated to the CS4 pack it took me some time to get used to the new interface, but it didn’t created any problem nor irritation.

One of the new features is multi track editing. This is quite a essential feature for audio-editing products. When you drag a audio track in the editing panel the audio track will be cascaded down in the editing panel. If you need to edit one specific track, the track can be opened in a seperate panel for more advanced kind of editing.

Soundbooths Auto-Heal is a feature that can remove random noises and clicky sounds from the audio track. In the performed tests it came out very good, compared to lots of other audio-edting products! Personally, I believe Soundbooth has one, if not the!, of the best Auto-Heal-like functions.

A third new feature is Vocal Enhancer. This is used for voice recordings, removing noises from microphone and such.

Overall I am very satisfied with the progress of Soundbooth, and because of the new universal interface I find it much more comforting working between Soundbooth and Premiere. I must admit however, for more professional features you should take Adobe Audition, but that’s just for the real pro’s who need greater control over their audio. Do not immediately think Soundbooth is not for those specialized in audio, film and is, but like I said above: Audition is for those who need even greater control.

I am happy I spent the 80 bucks for the upgrade, however if I had to I would paid the 200 too.

Fast sound recorder is both a voice editor and sound record software as its name suggests. It comes packed with many features though you could say it is a mini recording studio that runs on your own personal computer.

Best feature is that you can schedule recording to begin and stop at a given time.

But Fast Sound Recorder is more than just a sound recorder utility for windows. The more interesting feature is that it can edit sound.

Like all the professional voice recording software, Fast Sound Recorder can be set to pause recording sound if it detects no sound input for a given time. This is a very useful feature as once it detects voice or any kind of sound again it will resume recording right away. The result: a professional audio file with no big pauses.

I have been using this software for quit a long time now. This software is 100% satisfying for me. My typing skills are not that great, especially not compared to my talking skills.
Before you can use this product you’ll have to read a couple of texts to let Dragon Naturally Speaking get familiar with your voice and be able to recognize it. This might take quite a while but it’s all worth it. In fact I even found it pleasant to read the story’s.

Once all was set up I was ready to roll. Using the commands that can be set in Dragon Naturally Speaking are very helpful for my daily routine tasks, it really helps to speed up my work flow. For my work I have to do a lot of administration work, making documents and such, and when I am sitting in front of my pc too long I get really tired eyes and they force me to stop my work and continue later. But with this great software I can just sit in my living room with my microphone and dictate the documents and use the commands to save the document and create a new, send them over mail to my clients, or print them out.

This is one of the best software I have installed on my pc, and I recommended it to everyone. The price is all worth it!

Ever since I’ve been experiencing eye problems while working behind my computer I have been searching for products that could help me with reading from my computer screen. I’ve tried a lot of text to speech products and I never really found any good one until I found Natural Voice Text To Speech Reader. A lot of the products I used before either didn’t support the formats I wanted or they had a really rubbish performance or they were too expansive for me to buy or, last but definitely not least, were not user friendly at all.

It happens quite a lot that I let it read a document and record as MP3 and listen it when I want. The voice that is used here is pleasant to listen to. One of the other things of which I was and still am very happy about is the user interface. It’s very clear how to operate it. Later, when I got familiar enough with the product, I started customizing the settings more and more. And after a testing a lot of combination of settings I found the setting that was absolutely perfect to me. This even made me more satisfied with this product.

I can do nothing but recommending this product to everyone, don’t let the price scare you away cause it is absolutely worth it!

I’ve always had a scattered mind and I was always struggling with it. First I tried the notes-system but that was a true disaster. A month or two ago my daughter recommended me this product. As she has the same scattered mind as I do, but she found a solution to it.

It took me a week at max to get used to this system but after that it felt great working with it. I just love the personal audio messages. I let my friends speak in a personal reminder to their birthday and set the warning a couple of days before the birthday and on the birthday itself. That way I can remember their birthdays and still have enough time to buy them a present.

The way data is presented has a nice and clean look. I can see all my appointments in a single eye capture. I couldn’t be more satisfied with this product!

I recommend this product because:

  1. It’s easy in use.
  2. Clear and straightforward layout.
  3. It does it’s job, and this is of course one of the most important factors.
  4. It’s cheap!
