Review by Damian Höster on Apr 20, 2018 Version: 1.1 OS: Windows 10 64-bit Ease of use: 10/10 Functionality: 10/10 Value for money: 10/10 Overall: 10/10




Good software, but a major drawback is it needs a sound normalizer, however future builds promise this and also it cannot process 5.1 channel inputs as yet. Pazera audio extractor can process anything as input so I recommend using that for some tricky projects instead.

Review by Sayed on Nov 19, 2017 Version: 1.0.30 OS: Windows 8 64-bit Ease of use: 9/10 Functionality: 9/10 Value for money: 10/10 Overall: 9/10




Very good software, but like others my using it had declined for said reason of only 2 channel support. Also it would not open mkv sources.

Review by 7of9 on Aug 3, 2017 Version: 1.0.2.8 OS: Windows 7 64-bit Ease of use: 9/10 Functionality: 8/10 Value for money: 10/10 Overall: 9/10




I'd give this a 10/10 but it really is annoying that it won't accept an input source with more than 2 channels. Because of this it is not much use to me anymore.
