Ashampoo Music Studio 2018 – Free Full Version!



Ashampoo Music Studio 2018

Ashampoo has released their free version of Music Studio and we’d like to tell you a little bit about it.

Ashampoo Music Studio 2018 is a tried and versatile application to edit and burn audio files. Audio disc ripping happens quickly and missing track information is filled in automatically based on an extensive online database. Files can be burned or converted into different audio formats. The integrated audio editor enables users to modify or remove individual passages and allows them to split up tracks into individual parts. Organizing music collections is another strength of the program. Metadata can be modified, volumes altered and files renamed based on customizable naming schemes. Songs can be easily mixed with fading and audio tracks extracted from existing videos, e.g. to create ring tones. The built-in cover editor makes it easy to design covers and inlays using multiple integrated templates from simple designs to mosaic layouts. The main menu and program structure have been completely redesigned for quicker results. Individual segments can now be repositioned via dragging in the editor and will snap in place for easy rearrangement. Support for APE has also been added.

Main Menu


As you can see in the above image Music Studio 2018 has an intuitive interface which is easy to use. It has been my experience with Ashampoo products that not only are their programs superb, but they spend time on the menu systems as well. They are well thought out.
