AoA Audio Extractor Platinum is a software application that can be used in order to convert video and audio files to other formats, as well as record sounds with a minimal amount of effort.

After going through a smooth and surprise-free setup process, you are met with a simple and clean interface. It consists of a plain window which lets you quickly access all the options available. As a result, we can safely say that all user categories can find their way around it, including those with little or no previous experience with the IT world.

First and foremost, you can convert audio tracks between different formats, namely MP3, OGG, WAV, WMA, AC3, M4R and APE. In addition to that, you can extract the audio contents from video files such as AVI, MPG, DAT, ASF, WMV, MOV, FLV, 3GP and MP4, and save them to the hard drive using the aforementioned audio extensions.

It is possible to control the sample rate, channels and bit rate parameters, as well as trim the length of a selected item with just a few clicks.

You can record your voice with the help of a connected microphone, distort it to sound female or male, pause and start the process, and save the results to the hard drive using an MP3 or WAV. This utility also enables you to record your voice in a “karaoke mode,” meaning that you can also upload a background audio file and control its volume, as well as the microphones.

To wrap it up, AoA Audio Extractor Platinum is a pretty well-rounded piece of software. The interface is suitable to both power and novice users, yet it is not very appealing. All tasks are completed in a timely manner and there are sufficient options to keep you glued to your computer for a few hours.
