Softpedia Editor's Review for Audio CD Maker
Create your own music CDs in minutes and listen to them on your home stereo
Written by Bogdan Popa on July 11th, 2012
Audio CD Maker is an audio CD burning tool that handles the common audio formats on the market.
As compared to the other all-in-one burning products out there, Audio CD Maker is solely focused on audio CDs, so it doesn’t burn data discs or DVDs.
Instead, it tries to offers users a quick and simple way to create an audio CD, coming with support for MP3, WAV, WMA and OGG formats.
The program’s GUI has the task of making everything as easy to use as possible and it really manages to serve its purpose.
The well-organized layout allows users to select the burner and the write speed, pick files to be burned to disc and track the overall progress of the burning job from just a single window.
Additionally, Audio CD Maker can erase rewritable discs, enable test mode and finalize discs, with no other configuration screen included in the app.
The burning engine is simple yet effective, without any significant computer slowdown experienced during our testing. While Audio CD Maker works smoothly on both Windows XP and Windows Vista, it fails to launch on Windows 7, so it cannot be used on this platform.
To sum up, Audio CD Maker makes for a decent audio CD burner that doesn’t struggle to impress users with unnecessary features. It’s an effective package that combines a well thought out design and an easy to use burning engine.
