Cute Audio Mixer Free
Almost everything you watch on the web is accompanied by an audio background. Whether it’s just the noise from a recording, or a popular song, it more than sure needs some processing. A lot of tasks might be required, and chances are one is to join multiple files, which is exactly what Cute Audio Mixer Free does for you.
Simple design gets you quickly up and running
Just like it’s the case with most applications, this one also requires you to go through a setup process so that everything properly works. However, be sure to check every condition you accept, because there are more utilities packed in the bundle and you can end up with a bit more than you asked for.
The main window is the first thing you get to see, and we can say that accommodation is pretty easy. Most of the space is used to show the files you want to combine, but with no other details other than the path. It’s not such a bad thing, considering there’s no built-in tag editor.
Load various different file types
As much as you try, you won’t be able to load files by dragging them over the main window. It needs to be done through the browse dialog, which lets you select from an impressive array of formats like AVI, MP4, MPG, WMV, MOV, FLV, GIF, VOB, MPV, TX, SWF, MP3, OGG, APE, MKA, and DTS.
Order is manually set by arranging files in the list. You can also trigger playback through the built-in controls, but there’s no progress slider. Quality is kept intact and can’t be changed, so the source needs to be in good quality as well. You only need to set the destination folder.
If output quality settings are of no concern, then you might want to know that there’s one major drawback. The application only saves files under the MP3 format, and considering the variety of file types it can load, this is rather frustrating.
A few last words
On an ending note, Cute Audio Mixer Free comes with good intentions and manages to simplify the process of joining more audio files to only a few mouse clicks. The sad part is you have no control whatsoever over the quality of output files, neither in terms of technical details, nor file support, with a big impact on overall practicality.
