dBpoweramp supports a very wide variety of audio formats and there is almost no file extension you might think of that the converter doesn’t handle.
Some of the most popular file formats that the dBpoweramp works with are MP3, MP4, M4A, OGG, WMA, APE, AAC, FLAC and ALAC.
This utility contains three parts: a music converter, a batch converter and a CD ripper. By installing the dBpowerAMP Music Converter, you will actually get three applications instead of one. When you work with the music converter, you need to select the track you want to encode, choose settings, add effects if you want to and eventually start converting.
The batch converter functions similarly; you use treeview and select the files you want to convert. It is possible to select folders and convert all the files contained by them, including those found in subfolders. The CD ripper, as its name suggests, is nothing more but an application enabling you to extract audio tracks from CDs.
Besides installing the three components of dBpoweramp, you can optionally deploy other software to your computer, too, that can make the converter offer more features: additional codecs for all the audio formats you are interested in, DSP effects and the Reference Codec Pack Release.
Some additional interesting features that recommend the dBpoweramp are the ID3 tag preservation, the volume normalization and converting a file by doing a right click and selecting “Convert To”.
The dBpoweramp is a complete solution for fast and advanced audio files conversion.
