Sound Taxi Platinum isn’t really comparable the rest of the audio converter programs in the top 10. It is light on features and a little frustrating to use.

Sound Taxi converts 18 different audio formats, but surprisingly it only has 3 output formats, MP3, WAV and AAC, severely limiting your options. Sound Taxi can also be frustrating for users who need specific song configurations or who want to adjust the quality and file size of their song because Sound Taxi does not allow you to adjust channels and sampling rates on converted files.

While it’s useful for most audio conversions, Sound Taxi just isn’t as useful as NoteBurner or TuneBite, which both do it better.
