No problem installing and changing password on Win 8.1.
Program started without issue. I did not test the functions but have used their software and it has always functioned well.

A very unattractive program interface that looks like it was ported from DOS 6.2.

Poorly laid out, unintuitive operation, poorly done help file. AND renaming files MOVES THEM! MOVES THEM!

I usually like Ashampoo stuff, even with the non-stop advertising they spool to you, but this was just awful.

I could not WAIT to uninstall it.

If you're strictly using the English version, you can keep the following files and delete all others under the lang directory, wxwidgets-en-us.ashLang, portal-en-US.ashLang, peru-en-us.ashLang, MusicStudioCS-en-US.ashLang, graphics-en-us.ashLang, CoverEditor-en-us.ashLang, ash_inet2-en-GB.ashLang, common-en-us.ashLang, CommonCS-en-US.ashLang

You can also delete all the readme*.htm files as these are only used during installation and the license*.txt files in the C:\Program Files (x86) directory.

For you advanced users, see it you have copies of D3DCompiler_43.dll, d3dx9_43.dll and gdiplus.dll in the C:\Windows\System32 directory. To be safe, rename them first and thoroughly run the program to see that all is working. If it does, you can delete these files as well.

Also, check all your other Ashampoo applications and check the above as well.

Sorry, forgot to comment on the software when I posted above.

I think this a great software application with many options.

The page that opens after installation with Burning Studio 16 is also a great deal at $17.99

Same problem. Trying to install on a Win 10 machine. All the "Show System Requirements" and "get Free Activation Key" buttons do is ding at me. Won't let me get the code I need. Looks like someone needs to take a look at what is going .

We use dbPowerAmp to rip our CD collection. It's a top quality ripper, but it's tricky to organize your collection when ripping. I wonder if Ashampoo would be easier to use? For example, our collection includes rock, blues, reggae, various-artist hits, opera and lots of classical, too. For most of those music types it makes sense to organize them by artist name, then album title, then genre, etc.
However, with classical and opera we want them organized by composer first, then title of the work(s), then conductor, then artist, etc. Using dbPoweramp you have to tediously pre-set these parameters before you rip, and i have yet to figure out how to change the order of those parameters after ripping. One of the screenshots for Ashampoo appears to show a nice user window with the basic parameters clearly displayed for each disc you're ripping. Hopefully, you can adjust, change or re-order that information easily. Can anyone confirm this, please?

With Ashampoo you set up an account automatically when you register one of their offers, like today's or earlier GOTDs. The next time you go to register or activate an Ashampoo app, as soon as you enter your email it prompts for the password, you log in, & it shows the key.

If you're not getting the email from them, perhaps it would work to set up an account on their web site, then use that same email address when you activate the software.

Just to clarify. . . If anyone is -- understandably -- a bit confused about the way Ashampoo does things:

1) If an Ashampoo product has a version number, then it's the full retail product;

2) If an Ashampoo product has a year number, then it's a freebie that may well be derived from a superseded version;

3) Music Studio 2016 actually costs nothing at all. It is Music Studio 6 which has a retail sticker of $49.99. The freebie product is a pathway -- if so desired -- to acquiring the retail product for an apparently discounted price of $14.99;

4) Ashampoo has always operated two-tier pricing: a seemingly high retail for folks who know no better, a considerably lower one for those who do. That lower price is available to everyone who owns at least one licensed, retail Ashampoo product and has registered with Ashampoo. All that's necessary is to log in to the user's Ashampoo account and two prices will always be shown for every product: the 'retail' price, and the 'member' price;

(5) Ashampoo always provides a full description of OS compatibility in the specs list for each of its products. However: that description may not necessarily appear in a promotional summary, which is why the absence of any mention of Vista in today's summary has already confused some GOTDers. Where Music Studio (in all its versions) is concerned, it's best to simply check with the developer's website features list, as follows:

Music Studio 5, September 2014 (mentioned here because it's possible that some of its features are in today's giveaway):
https://www.ashampoo.com/en/usd/pde/0730/multimedia-software/music-studio-5

Music Studio 6, July 2015 (the current version):
https://www.ashampoo.com/en/usd/pde/0930/multimedia-software/music-studio-6

and Music Studio 2016, February 2016, today's giveaway:
https://www.ashampoo.com/en/usd/pde/1130/multimedia-software/Ashampoo-Music-Studio-2016

As will be seen, all of those are said by Ashampoo to be compatible with Windows Vista thru Windows 10.

Thanks to Ashampoo's comprehensive provision of information about all its products, it's always easy to decide whether it's suited to an individual's needs, or not. The developer has an excellent reputation for its software even if I, personally, don't think it does itself any favours with its style of marketing. That carping aside though, it continues to offer quality with value (note: for 'members') so today's promotion is a handy introduction -- if required -- not only to this particular product but to Ashampoo in general.

" Ashampoo has always operated two-tier pricing..."

I'd add that if you opt to get their emails you will get special offers, including occasional name-your-price promos, where you make them an offer, & see if they'll sell it to you at that price.

I have reservation with the working of the makers of the software. Couple of days back there was DVD burning software was on for grab. After going through all the installation process, found the software does not do the needful as expected. Now I am bombarded with marketing emails to buy other discounted products. Hope those who have downloaded are enjoying the purpose of doing so.

The idea is to move everyone to the new versions of windows.
It is sad I have two systems, and I use XP for most of my work,
whilst my Windows 7 machine sits quietly idle.
My quad processor xp machine is quicker than my 6 processor windows 7,
machine.
Why not have programs available across all platforms ?
Some say it is progress, but is it really?

@ Peter James
Software usually runs on Windows from XP to 10. If only one is mentioned: XP, Vista, 7, 8, 8.1 or 10 it WILL run on ALL those Windows versions. Except, there is a strange copy protection in the background in that case sometimes software might not run. What might happen is, that software ranging from XP to 10 is NOT running on a PC with Win 95 - 2000 and vice versa.

" I use XP for most of my work... Why not have programs available across all platforms ?"

Some companies will make a special effort to ensure their software runs on XP, but I think most figure it's such a small portion of the total market, it's not worth any extra work. So they develop their apps for 7-10, & if it works on older Windows versions, cool -- if not, oh well.

In exactly the same position, work in XP but have Win 700 idle but available.

Newer versions of Windows often bring in new functions; for instance volume levelling in video in Windows 7 which is not available in XP according to my understanding.
If these functions are used in a program that earlier versions cannot take advantage of they are not considered suitable for these versions.

I don't believe it's such a small segment of the market that runs xp. When support for XP was discontinued 2 years ago, one out of every 3 computers still ran XP. Could you imagine if car companies stopped providing parts for one out of every 3 used cars still on the road???

"I don't believe it's such a small segment of the market that runs xp."

StatCounter shows XP as having a 4.1% marketshare in the US -- China, often cited for the number of pirated copies of XP in use, shows ~25%.

You may have a great reason for running XP, Phillip, but some fraction of that 4% is running XP because they didn't want to buy a newer version. A lot of [most?] recent hardware won't run XP -- the bios is incompatible -- so those running XP are more likely to be using an older PC. Some may be using an older PC just for XP, but others simply don't want to or can't spend the money.

So if a company is looking at X number of dollars to rewrite portions of their code for XP, they have to balance that against potential sales to less than 4% of the market.

Hi,
Program actually refuses to install on XP Pro SP3 computer.
Got an error message "This program does not support the version of Windows your computer is running."
Too bad !

I don't understand!? Of course Windows 7 - 10 runs on PCs with 1GB RAM. In that case it is wise to use the 32Bit version, though.
Many Netbooks and Tablets only have 1GB RAM.

I had my doubts, but you're right - microsoft[.]com/en-us/windows/windows-10-specifications#sysreqs

I haven't seen any tablets with 1GB, though I'm sure now that they exist, but I sure wouldn't want one -- my tab with 2GB is more than slow enough. ;)

What is the difference between this download (45 MB) and the "Music Studio 2016" (45.2 MB) available for free on their website ? Maybe my eyesight is
failing me, but this offer doesn't appear to be Ashampoo's typical "SE" version.
