I’m impressed…and that’s not easy to do, ’cause I tend to want too much.
A press release was sent to me about the MP3 Toolkit:
“…a free and powerful Windows app includes MP3 converter, CD ripper, tag editor, MP3 cutter, MP3 merger and MP3 recorder for users who want to handle MP3 files easier.
“You can use MP3 Toolkit to convert audio…fix tag information, rip Audio CD, record sound or merge audio pieces to a complete MP3 file.”
Yeah, yeah, yeah…I’ll install it and check it out…one day.
That day did come…it was at 5 A.M. that day (finding free time ain’t easy with my schedules)…
“MP3 Recorder is designed to…record any sound from the microphone to standard MP3 format without any limitation on length. Also it’s possible to record streaming audio provided that the sound card supports sound mixing…select sample rate, bitrate and channels…”
“CD to MP3 Ripper…choose bitrate, maximal VBR bitrate, encoding quality…rip the audio from CD to MP3, WMA, APE or WAV…”
“MP3 Converter…MP3, WMA, OGG, WAV, FLAC, AC3, AAC or AMR…customize other settings such as bitrate, rate, audio channel…It can also extract the audio stream from popular video formats like MP4, FLV, AVI, etc.”
“MP3 Merger…select files in MP3, WAVE, FLAC or OGG, specify the output settings such as bitrate, rate, audio channel…offers a batch mode that enables merging multiple files in the fully unattended manner…”
“MP3 Cutter…It also has the ability to cut a part of music from a video file, or a movie.”
“MP3 Tag Editor…It supports all ID3v1 and ID3v2 versions. Also, the editor will allow you to edit album photos and lyrics.”
I’ve been looking for something like this: I want to record audio “letters” or “diaries”, stitch them together…and then send the file (or files).
(Some of the formats that are) Supported are…
MP3 Toolkit Input Audio/Video Formats:
AAC, AC3, AMR, ASF, APE, AVI, FLAC, FLV, MP4, M4V, M4P, MOV, M4A, MP3, MPG, MTV, OGG, RM, WAV, SWF, WMV, WMA
MP3 Toolkit Output Audio Formats:
MP3, AC3, AAC (Apple Audio), OGG, AMR, WMA, FLAC, APE, WAV, MPG (Audio)
MP3 Toolkit is compatible with Microsoft Windows 2000, XP, 2003, VISTA and 7…and Windows 8.
