Comments on Absolute Audio Converter

Thank you for voting!
Please add a comment explaining the reason behind your vote.

Suggestion - alternate or custom bit rates - e.g MP3 at 192Kbps rather than the fixed defaults of 128 or 256.
I personally do not like MP3 at 128K and find 256K tends to take up too much space, so I prefer 192Kbps, which means your converter is useless to me.
You also get a similar problems with some media players that only accept specific data rates (which are not available in the predefined ones that Absolute Audio Converter makes available).
Thus I am now going to uninstall it.

Pazera Audio Extractor does pretty much the same things that this program does, and it is freeware.

@ 16 DeeGeePee; I have to agree this does look strangely like Free Audio Converter. The free one has a lot of extras and you can configure the program as well. I think I will download the free one and thanks GeeDeePee for the info! As for the one here today, I see they have a long page of awards, but none are clickable to actually confirm that and there are a lot of strange awards I've never seen before.
Thanks GOTD for all your doing for us!!!

Can Absolute Audio Converter record from my sound card?

Ad.: #18 and all others.

The term of a file with "WAVE PCM" sound is a DIFFERENT term than a CD-Audio in PC's CD drive!!!
The CD-Audio is much more similar to a folder of WAVE files than to a folder of MP3 files, but they are a DIFFERENT things.

I have tested the CD-Audio extraction feature on my installation of the Absolute Audio Converter and my example CD-Audio.

I have used a single session plain CD-Audio disc that I can play in my CD-Audio player without problem - it is not a mixed-mode program & audio disc. This disc is an originally manufactured disc, so I think that it is well recorded.

There are many CD-Audio rippers that can run with different ripping options and giving other output files in every cycle (!!!) - especially when the input CD is scratched.
BTW. Some years ago, to rip CD-Audio file into WAVE PCM you have to own a good CD drive or better the CD recorder. I remember setting the reading speed into 1x or 4x instead of 16x to get better audio quality. Many cheap CD drives have been generating audio extraction errors and have had a low maximum reading speed.
Summing up: Converting CD-Audio into PCM WAVE file is an another process and some time earlier it was something that was performed only by (near) warlocks. Today's program unfortunately is not changing it.

Downloaded and installed flawlessly on Windows 7 x64. Tested different types of conversions effortlessly. Intuitive straight forward interface that delivers the required result. Yes there are other software out there that offer more control, but for a quick clean conversion without much user input required, it's good. This is a keeper.

This is a nice piece of software, I like the interface and quick conversions. But I certainly wouldn't pay the $30 dollar price tag when there are better freeware alternatives such as Format Factory which will convert about any audio, video or image you can throw at it. Also there is SUPER, another awesome converter that converts practically anything, Between the two of them you could convert just about anything imaginable. Still i give this a thumbs up because it works well & GAOTD has it for free ;)

Totally Bogus - could Not support a plain CD format.
Sounds like another dummy demo, hoping some will but the program.
Even from the looks of it I could tell it was going to be a dog.

Don't waster your time.

-Fast conversion
-Supports using network files
-Batch supported
-convert audio streams from videos
-Limited options: can only use the minimal profile/preset options (ex. "to mp3" kbps:112,128,256,320 only)
-Doesn't support ripping audio cd's (.cda)
-Can't extract original audio streams from videos

Pazera Audio Extractor 1.3...portable(3mb), fast, supports batch conversion, converts audio files to numerous formats (mp3, aac, ogg, wav, wma, ac3, flac, etc.), can extract original audio streams from videos (including .ts files...just change extension to .mpg first), converts audio streams from videos to different formats, tons of profiles/options (32-320kbps/orig, freq, volume, etc.)
Format Factory 2.45 is also great, but takes up more disk space(>100mb). Main cons with Pazera are that it doesn't support using network files and just like this giveaway, doesn't support ripping audio cd's (.cda).

I have checked the awards page that they have posted. I went to each award page and NOT one of them shows an award for this program.
I use other software that is far better than this one, so it is totally useless to me.

Download and installation was easy on XP SR3.

INSTALLATION is slightly different than what GEEDEEPEE (Post 16) wrote:
-Run and open program
-Click "HELP" (lower left)
-Click “Enter Plus Version Key Code" [Third line down after clicking "HELP".
-Follow the info in the unzipped read me!

Nice appearance, but I could not open the help file or the quick start file. I found that to load a file to be converted, I had to click on the green plus sign in the upper right hand corner, navigate to the directory holding the file, and click on the file name to load it into "Absolute Audio Converter". Clicking on the file name in AAC opens a screen containing the various file formats to which a file can be converted and a place to specify the output directory. Then click on Convert at the bottom.

Other than the missing help file, it looks like a very professionally designed program.

Thanks, GAOTD, the people at Absolute Audio Converter, and all of the other people posting comments.

Absolute Audio Converter is a nice app that appears to use the ffmpeg libraries to transcode quite a few audio formats [not just the relative few the developer(s) list], as well as audio tracks combined with video... it's major flaw is that you're stuck with the preset output templates [No customization], & those templates might make little -- if any -- sense. A perfect example is .wav output, which includes the standard 48kHz sampling rate, but at a very much unusual 32 bits rather than the *extremely, common standard* 16 bit, or even the up-a-notch 24 bits. *If* your other software will handle it, it will be *extremely* slow to work with &/or convert to something workable.

That said, IF the output templates are a good fit for you -- have what you need -- Absolute Audio Converter is pretty painless to install & use. It's Almost a portable app, & could be converted to one using portable app creator [from the portableapp.com forums], which can relocate the app's 2ndary folder from Docs & Settings \ [UserName] \ Application Data to a portable app folder on your USB stick for example.

My favorite all around audio conversion app is the free, LameXP, though working with video more often I don't need as many input formats as more audio-centric people. Purely FWIW, I also often use AviSynth with the NicAudio, either NicAC3Source or NicDTSSource, Amplify, & Soundout plugins for multi-channel... Amplify(0.90) prevents clipping, while Soundout saves the file as wave64, to overcome the 2GB wav file limit -- it's the only way I've found to always prevent AC3/DTS conversions from clipping [without altering, normalizing files etc], & then I can convert the wav64 to whatever I want/need.

Absolute Audio Converter is definitely a great piece of software. Conversion time is quick, the interface is clean, and the results turned out nicely. It’s a great program for average and advanced users alike, and easy enough for just about anyone to use. The selection of formats is large, and converting files is a snap to do. The $30 pricetag may be a little too much though – but the program is something anyone should definitely consider.

-Easy to use
-Clean Interface
-Ability to convert audio and video files
-Large selection of audio and video formats to convert to and from
-Very fast conversion speed
-Ability to alert the user or shut down the computer when conversion finishes

-$30 may be a bit too pricey

It does say that it converts "WAV PCM" - is this not how CD tracks are encoded?
Does it convert CD music tracks?, perhaps someone from MEPMedia (or someone else can tell us?

Thanks, Eldad

XP3 - no problems installing or running. (>5)

INSTALLATION: (kinda left out of the original instructions)
-Run program
-Click HELP (lower left)
-Click ABOUT
-Click "Enter Plus Version Key Code.
-Follow the info in the read me or that pop up you probably closed!

It works. Is it the best? .. Probably not. Format factory and several other GAOTD freebies work as well.

It is fast, simple, and easy to use.

You can down size MP3s to smaller files to cram into players and fones with limited space.

I gave up on .WMAs because of DRMs, so I did not have any to test that, but suspect it will not defeat a DRM.

Program gives you NO choice of configuration. No, for example, method of using VRB for MP3s. No choice of destination folder.

Looks STRANGELY like:

It is simple, easy to use and not a bad deal for free, but not for $30

Programs works, but need some polish and corrections. Many english spelling errors (which is minor). But the program does not keep and convert the id3 tags. Once the info is lost about track number, artist, title, etc, it is much work to re-enter it manually. It would be much better if it was revised and updated before releasing it again. The price of $30 is higher than I would pay for a program of this caliber.

Will it be able to convert protected WMA to mp3?


Reply   |   Comment by Anupam  –  11 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (-6)

Simple and easy to use,effectively does it job, great looking. But in a program that claims to be "absolute", one would expect more - for instance, the possibility to convert to a specific format only a part of the mp3 file - e.g not the whole song, but only the intro - from 0min 0 sec to 1 min 2 sec.
Also please note that there are many freeware alternatives, like Format factory, so the price is really too high.

Smooth download, installation, activation, registration on Vista x32 OS. GUI and step-by-step instructions make the program very easy and simple to use - even novices can use the program without reading the Help File. By the way - Program accepts user's own email address (contrary to readme.txt guidance) for successful registration.

Reply   |   Comment by Inas  –  11 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+11)

Registration is simple. We have to enter three lines of text into proper form in program (menu Help/Enter "Plus!" version code).

This software CAN ALSO CONVERT VIDEO FILES INTO AUDIO FILES (RIP AUDIO FROM VIDEO) !!! This is the advantage of the Plus! version, which is on today's GAOTD.

I have tested it on a sample *.mp4 file and I have converted it successfully and fast into the *.mp3 file. We can choose one from the the popular MP3 bitrates or choose other audio format (and bitrate for it).

The only disadvantage is that the "Play" button didn't work for me on this file.

Summing up: easy, plug&play and simply working, but somewhat limited software (no CD-Audio extraction support reported).

Thanks to GAOTD.

It DOES convert FLAC files.

It would be helpful if you specify a folder and then have it convert all files in that folder -- and even files in sub-folders, automatically generating sub-folder names.

When setting the destination folder, it would be better if you could simply enter a pathname instead of having to walk down the file structure of the computer.

I believe WAV PCM means that it can extract audio CD's

Yes it does convert flac files. Just what I needed, very simple and easy to use and quick conversion.

Brilliant, thanks.

This doesn't say that it converts CD tracks to MP3, and it doesn't so as far as I'm concerned, it's useless.

#3, Do Do Re, Conversion to ogg works if the decimal notation of your system uses a decimal point.
At first ik did not work for me to, but then I saw the error in the log about an invalid decimal code "4.97". In Holland we use a comma as decimal separator.
Then I changed my landcode to "English (US)", which uses a point as decimal separator and hey presto! the conversion worked.
