Advanced WMA Workshop’s interface is basic and simple to use, due to its Explorer-like layout. Thus you can easily detect tracks and choose which ones to convert.
Before conversion, you have to check the path, the settings, the status of each audio file and the elapsed time. After selecting the destination folder too, you just have to ask Advanced WMA Workshop to convert the files and wait for a while.
Other useful features of Advanced WMA Workshop are the CD ripping ability, allowing you to convert Audio CD contents to WMA, OGG, MP3 or WAV formats, and the CDDB support, which makes it possible to download information about Audio CDs from Internet databases. Moreover, due to the Winamp playlist support, you can create or add items to Winamp playlists.
The last version of Advanced WMA Workshop, 2.7.4, was launched in 2008, and was improved with full Unicode support, auto-check for software updates, fixing a few bugs and support for UTF-8 encoded m3u playlists and tags.
Advanced WMA Workshop is recommended to anyone looking to encode files with the most common audio formats to WMA 8 and apply a variety of editing options.
The batch conversion feature and the low amount of system resources needed by this application make it an ideal choice for the majority of multimedia users.
A few options easing your work are the batch processing feature, the ID3v1 tags compatibility and the fast conversion speed.
