Apparently no MIDI support. Professionals use MIDI. Period.

“BTW, there are many Streaming Audio Recorders, but does anyone know of a good program to download music from the internet or youtube without waiting until the music has played till the end i.e. until it has completed streaming?”

The best site I have found for downloading from YouTube is http://www.youtube-mp3.org/ It doesn't require you to download anything to run, just copy/paste the URL for the YouTube video you want to generate an MP3. You also don't have to wait for the video to fully play. Does NOT let you chose the quality of the file, so I usually search YouTube for the song title plus adding LYRICS to the end. These tend to have the best audio quality, but I suggest you do a quick listen to be sure you like it before pasting to the link above.

To download MP3 from YouTube without playing/streaming it first, use tubget.com free - just paste the URL and it retrieves/downloads.

One nice function of this software is the simple ability to crossfade numerous tracks and export as one large "mixed" mp3. I run quite a bit and it's nice to have "playlists" as giant MP3s versus individual tracks. I usually do this in Audacity but this was easier.

On the downside, couldn't see an adjustment for the crossfade time and the resulting test file was ~9 MBs larger than the individual tracks (~21 MBs vs 30 MBs) but not a big deal for my purposes.

Look up "Free Studio" by DVD VideoSoft. It has an awesome range of free tools, you can automatically convert video to audio, download videos, convert to mobile audio formats, burn to disk, it's an amazing collection of tools.

sorry, that was meant for drvajra and not JGF
and with FreeMake, you do not have to wait for the song/video to play or finish, you do not even have to listen or play it at all, paste the link and it will download and convert much faster then when it plays on your computer, you can also paste multi links to download more then one song.

to JGF

download an install FreeMake http://www.freemake.com/free_video_converter/ This is not only an excellent video converter it is also a media downloader. When copy and pasting a Yuotube URL you can choose "convert to video formats such as AVI, MP4 etc or MP3 (in the later case it will download only the sound). being supported by hardware acceleration, it is very fast.
When install choose customize and uncheck all the adwares (or click skip).
Free and good,
Enjoy

I actually bought this software as part of a package a few months ago. There is nothing inherently wrong with this piece of software, but I don't know how useful it is in today's world. I think it would have been cooler had it come out about 10 years ago.

The problem is that most people already have software installed that does what this does. It can organize your tunes, but not as well as WMP or iTunes. It does convert audio files, but lots of programs do that. It offers very basic audio editing (but very basic.) It has a "mix" feature, but who cares? It also has a simple interface for you to design your own CD covers, but I don't know how many people do that anymore. I haven't tried the "extract audio from video" feature, which might come in handy some day.

What I don't like is that even though I paid for this I still have to see an ad every time I start the program for other Ashampoo products. After the ad, I have to see another ad asking me to upgrade to the latest version.

I keep it around mostly because I'd feel like a loser for paying for it and not at least having it installed. I think I used it once to convert some files. It has an easy to use interface that casual computer folks will like and hard-core folks will think is too simple.

Overall, my opinion is that it cobbles together a bunch of features that are convenient to have in one spot but can be found in more powerful offerings without much trouble.

@drvajra: You can try this free software to convert youtube videos to mp3 and save them to your computer. They have another one to save youtube videos to your computer also. I use both of these and they work well.

Hope this helps!

The title of their web site is Ashampoo - We make software... perhaps it should be We Market software? :)

Regardless, their software is decent within their market niche, designed so that pretty much anyone can dive right in & use their programs, no real learning or experience required. If you don't opt out they will send you emails -- I don't opt out, & occasionally when the price is right I'll take advantage of one of their offers. It might take a while -- it took over 6 months before I bought Snap 7 -- but eventually they'll usually have a substantial markdown on the software you might be interested in.

Now their Music Studio is Very much entry level. It doesn't have the functionality of any audio software I've ever seen, free or paid, but it brings together several different tasks that you might have to use seperate apps for otherwise, and if all you knew was how to turn your computer on, you could probably use it without the slightest problems. It allows you to rip music from CDs, convert them to MP3 etc., catalog your collection, & rather than use playlists, in the interest of keeping things as simple & easy as possible, it lets you create larger, longer files made up of your favorite music, complete with cross-fades where one ends & another starts. [It's not that playlists themselves are hard, but you have to learn how to use them with whatever player, and this removes even that simplest requirement.]

Music Studio does have an Editor, but I hesitate to even mention it -- I decided to to say something about it only because some might read it in the software's description or features and become curious. In a nutshell it lets you cut/copy, paste or insert, & trim audio files. If you already know how to edit audio files, compared to the software you use now you'll be disappointed. If you want to learn to edit or work with audio files, start with Wavosaur or Audacity or Sony or Nero etc., where you can actually do something. My guess is that Music Studio has an editor because Ashampoo felt an audio app needed to have one, and then neutered it to avoid anything that might give a complete novice pause.

I started out monitoring Ashampoo's Music Studio's installation in my XP Mode VM, finding that it needed .NET 4.0. Oh Bother... I'd used my win7 32 VM to monitor an install last night, which trashed the app I use to monitor this stuff, InstallWatch Pro [it happens, which is why I prefer to monitor this stuff in XP]. So I restored that VM by copying the base copy of that win7 32 VM into place & monitored the install, finding that as usual for Ashampoo, nothing really nasty went on -- you need to decline an offer during setup, & get a couple of extra desktop icons, but that's it. I also did the same thing for their latest Music Studio 5, which installed alongside today's GOTD.

Someone asked if you had to uninstall the last version Ashampoo offered on GOTD. Probably not, though if the folder names are the same it might overwrite that earlier install. The program's files are dated 9/27/13 if you wanted to see how much later they were than what you have now. The upgrade to v.5 might well be worth it depending on the price -- everyone has their own individual sense of what it takes to get them to part with their hard earned dollars, & for me, if I used the older version that's free today, I'd probably pay between $5 & $10 [hopefully Ashampoo would offer it in an email closer to $5]. Version 5 does seem to run better/faster & has a few more, optional controls.

"Strangely enough I am looking for a player and can’t find nothing that can simply play my files without annoying. I guess I’m sticked with good old Irfanview."

Applian FLV Player and Zoom Player are both free and work quite well.

Audials will grab a complete song from any point while it's playing (Audials is occasionally offered here).

If you're using Firefox, Flashgot will download from youtube, or similar sites, once the media has started playing (merely right click its icon and select the format/filesize).

It must be difficult these days to create a program that has some feature that are not found in freeware programs.
I can't find any feature in this program going by the list of features that can't be found in some freeware programs.
Could someone tell me what is the main attraction in this program?

Hello it is nice to see version 4.1.2 here. Please i would like to know if there is any need for me to update since i already have the version 4.0. Would i need to reinstall this version or simply update? Meanwhile i must shout it out loud to all that your software (and every ashampoo software at that) are great amongst competition.Keep up the good work. An advice every one should cash on this chance to get it.

We'll stay with music.

Installed and registered the "ashampoo way" (you don't need to enter private data) without problems on a Win 8.1 Pro 64 bit system. The setup this time without the GOTD wrapper.

During registration the new Ashampoo® Music Studio 5 is advertised. They are strong in advertising...

A German company with name and address.

We had had the Ashampoo Music Studio 2013 ver. 4.0.7 one year ago on June 23th. Here are the old reviews.

http://www.giveawayoftheday.com/ashampoo-music-studio-2013-ver-4-0-7/

The software itself is from September 2013.

Upon start a stylish interface in blue - no other skins. Under preferences a "service channel" where you allow to send information about updates to you. You have to disable the check. There will be no updates for this program any more.

You can extract, burn organize your music files, mix tapes or edit covers.

The help file is better than normal, with some slight problems - it leads in this case in the nirwana. This should never be...

This page cannot be displayed.
Make sure that the Webadress //ieframe.dll/dnserrordiagoff.htm# is correct.


A Swiss knife for music files with a modern interface - for some maybe too stylish with the animated buttons.

In my short test does what it claims, from converting to extracting.

I didn't test the "burn disk", since I don't remember when I burned my last audio CD or mp3 disk. Must be decades. LOL

A well tested program from Ashampoo.

Uninstalled via reboot. One Swiss knife is sufficient for me.

"Ashampoo Music Studio is your all-in-one solution to create, edit, design and produce your music"

Makes it sound like an 'ejay' style program which it isn't...

It's more of a music organiser, with the ability to mix tracks together.
