Mystik Media just keeps making Blaze Media Pro better! It's only been about two months since I reviewed the former version of this software and they've done it again.

Blaze Media Pro is a multimedia player, converter, editor, recorder ... all wrapped up into one very understandable, easy to use software. It does the obvious (playback of audio/video files) and goes way beyond. It will convert both audio and video formats between file types; this new version of Blaze Media Pro supports even more file types than before. The CD Converter features CDDB auto-save, enabling you to download track title, artist, and album information from the internet. Of course, you can edit this information in any manner you choose, or you can completely disable this feature if you don't want to be connected to the internet while converting CD tracks.

You can record audio files from any analog connection (i.e. a cassette or record player, phone line, TV tuner audio, CD player, line-in, microphone, etc.). The video window can be freely resized, and you can control playback speed and position.

Blaze Media Pro also features a "playlist editor", which allows you to create your favourite song/video lists, combining both audio and video files within the same list.

The user interface is very clean and easily understood. If you need any help, it's available from all sides: The software has a help feature included, plus Mystik Media's website is a wealth of well-written help information.

The trial version of Blaze Media Pro is functional for 15 days. You can either download from the website or order the CD-ROM trial version. The only limitation in the trial version is that the WAV to CD Audio conversion is disabled. If you enjoy the multimedia capabilities of your PC, you're going to love this software. Give it a try today!
