Virtuosa Gold is an all in one music machine that converts CD audio to MP3, WAV, WMA, performs conversions between all those formats, and also will burn to CD. Included is a great sounding player, skins to change the look of the program, and a ton of other features.


Most all in one MP3 software packages try to do too much and do very little well. Not true with Virtuosa. This is by far the best all around program I have seen, beating out MusicMatch Jukebox by a great deal. So what makes it so good?

1.  Speed.   Oh the speed. The program ripped a 13 track CD to WAV in about 5 minutes. Conversion to MP3 is just a matter of seconds. Burn time will depend on your CD burning hardware.

2. Quality.   Ripped tracks were excellent. MP3 encoding is with the Fraunhofer encoder so that too was top notch. Decoding was perfect.

3. Features.   Lots of them. Included is jukebox capability, cd cover maker, cool visualizations and skins, movie jukebox that reads all the latest formats, audio and video database organizer and playlists, cd collection manager and more. There is even an addictive automix feature that lets you mix all your normalized tracks. Add search function, id3v2 tag support, and normalization and you've got a ton of features packed in.

Virtuosa undertakes a huge mission in trying to do so much but so much it does well. I would say the only drawback to the program is that the interface is non-standard design. You may have to go through the tutorial or help file to learn your way around. One last benefit to the programs is updates. If you decide to purchase the program, you will get free updates for life, a feature that programs like MusicMatch charge $20 extra to get. Virtuosa Gold Phoenix Edition may be the last MP3 program you check out.
