Audio files can be obtained in different ways, either through recording, or using dedicated applications that build them as a result of your actions. However formats can be different, and playing them might require conversion first. This is where applications like Audio Merge Expert come in handy, with neat file support, and quick conversion.

The application takes you through a quick and effortless setup process so it can deploy on your system. Once launched, the main window shows up, with most of the space used to show files you add, and general function controls found in the upper toolbar.

Fortunately, files can be added both by dragging them over the main window, or through the built-in browse dialog. As such, it easy to load audio files under formats like WAV, MP2, MP3, MPGA, WMA, OGG, CDA, VOX, RAW, AIF, and MPC. On the other hand, export is limited to MP3, WAV, OGG, and WMA, but they’re pretty common and diverse.

You’re only asked for a destination once you decide to put a process in motion. Before this is done, the output format needs to be selected from a drop-down menu, each with its own quality settings you can configure. However, the decision needs to be final for all loaded files, because you can’t set a different output type for each file you want to convert.

As the name suggests, the application can also be used to bundle multiple audios into a single file of the format you select. The process usually goes smooth and fast, but this only depends on the length and size of target files. Sadly, it can only be used to merge files, because there’s no built-in splitting utility.

Taking everything into consideration, we can say that Audio Merge Expert is a straightforward application that manages to live up to expectations. The simple design quickly gets you up and running, while the variety of supported formats can be configured in order to preserve, or even enhance quality.
