As first impressions go, SoundTaxi Pro+Video Rip made a bad one. No sooner had the app installed when seven new icons appeared on my desktop and I realized that not one, but two new programs had been added to my quick-launch bar - not the best way to make an entrance.

SoundTaxi Pro+Video Rip is a program to convert your DRM and non-DRM video and audio files and rip and burn CDs. As the program states, it should only be used on DRM-protected media that you actually own. If you do, then it can be liberated from the original format so you can use it on various players. The SoundTaxi Pro+Video Rip interface is plain but easy to use. You add media with Select Files, and can then convert it, copy to iPod, burn to disc or play it within the SoundTaxi Pro+Video Rip interface.

Be careful - SoundTaxi Pro+Video Rip is configured to convert files automatically as soon as they are added to the program. This can be changed in the configuration settings, where you will also be able to choose conversion profiles and toggle a few more options, such as quality settings and a troubleshooting feature. SoundTaxi Pro+Video Rip provides a good help file, and you can also use the program in Advanced or Normal mode, which merely changes the number of options that appear in the main interface.

SoundTaxi Pro+Video Rip is fast, but feels invasive and has a restrictive trial period.

SoundTaxi Pro+Video Rip supports the following formats

Output formats for audio are MP3, M4A, WMA & WAV, for video - MP4, WMV & AVI.
