PROS / You can edit video, convert audio and change the audio channel settings to a stereo 5.1-channel configuration.
CONS / It is only compatible with 16 audio formats and can't rip CD audio.
VERDICT / Aiseesoft has many of the features found in products at the top of our lineup. It is affordable and works on both Mac and PC platforms.
Aiseesoft Audio Converter has video editing abilities as well as audio converting capabilities. You can also use this software to extract the audio data from video files. This audio converter software lands near the middle of the pack in our lineup. It provides many of the same features as our top picks, but doesn't quite provide the file capabilities as others in our lineup.
Aiseesoft and another product in our comparison, ANYMP4, are eerily similar audio conversion programs. They have almost identical user interfaces, and both have the ability to trim video files and add effects to the video. The main difference between the two programs is that Aiseesoft is compatible with fewer audio formats. In fact, only two converters in our lineup are compatible with fewer file formats. However, it can convert audio to 14 different formats, which is among the best in our lineup. Although it is compatible with 16 different audio formats, we were unable to rip CDs into the library. It is a disappointment when audio converters are unable to read audio CDs because compressing CDs is an important part of creating storage for your audio files on your computer.
You can use this MP3 converter to trim the length of video files as well as adding effects to the video to enhance the quality. There are few other audio converters that have video editing tools like Aiseesoft Audio Converter. You can also extract the audio data from video clips. We were able to extract the audio data from all of our test videos, which included M4V, MOV, MP4, MPG and WMV files.
When you are converting your audio, you can change the bitrate and sample rate of the converted audio file. You can also change the channel configuration of the file to mono, stereo or 5.1 stereo configurations. This means that when you listen your audio on a 5.1 stereo system, specific frequencies will be directed to certain speakers.
This audio-video converter is available on both Mac and PC platforms. There are two purchase options – a one-year subscription or a flat fee for permanent purchase. The lifetime purchase is only a few more dollars than the one-year fee.
Aiseesoft Audio Converter has both audio conversion and video editing tools. We were unable to rip CD audio into the program, but we were able to extract the audio data video files. It is available on both PC and Mac platforms. If you are looking for an audio converter but also need a program with video editing tools, Aiseesoft Audio Converter may suit your needs.
