Pros / It has the most customer support resources of any software we reviewed.
Cons / It doesn’t have a record timer or voice-activated recording.
Verdict / AV Music Morpher is a great option for those who simply want to record audio without the fuss of extra or advanced features getting in the way.
AV Music Morpher Gold is a multi-tool voice recording software suite, supporting voice recording, editing, conversion and burning. Despite lacking a few audio editing effects and missing the mark in file format and operating system compatibility, it is a solid program overall, and it has impressive audio editing capabilities and format compatibility, but lacks some standard recording tools.
The audio recording software supports audio feed/input sources from any of the available options like microphones, line-in devices, internet streaming, audio playback and video playback using its built-in features.
If you want to record your voice, you’ll have to initiate recordings manually, as the program does not support record timers or voice-activated recording. The absence of these features limits its scope for voice recording applications.
It does, however, have a dedicated tool for ripping audio CD/DVDs called CD Grabber. Music tracks can be saved to WMA, IRC, MP3, NIST, OGG, WAV and FLAC formats. The burn tool within the program can burn CDs to data and audio formats. DVDs can be burned to data format only.
AV Music Morpher Gold supports a variety of filters, including normalize, amplify, mix, notch filter and others. Besides these filters, the program features several special effects that can be used to alter the pace of speech, pitch, timbre, etc. It also allows you to change a file’s format and edit its metadata.
The program can open files in MP3, WAV, AIF, AU and nine other formats. However, it is not compatible with MIDI, M4A or AAC file formats. Additionally, the software is only available for Windows 7 and XP users, and not for newer versions or Mac OS X users.
Using AV Music Morpher Gold is easy for the most part, though it doesn’t have the most intuitive interface of all the programs we reviewed and still feels somewhat clunky. Everything is well-organized into multiple tab categories. Inexplicably, however, there is a Funny Space tab, which has links to random photos and videos across the internet and feels like it could be connected to spam or malware. There is no reason for the software to have this.
The software publisher, AVnex, provides support to users by way of every method we looked for, including a product manual, online help, a user forum, a FAQs section, tutorials, updates and even personalized technical support via live chat, email and telephone.
AV Music Morpher Gold is a good audio tool, especially with its audio editing and sound effect capabilities. Despite being a bit limited in scope due to the absence of a record timer and voice-activation tools, the software is decently easy to use and is compatible with a variety of input sources.
