Hey, Mikel here.
After much hard work and effort, it’s finally done.
Thanks for waiting. So….. “Here’s the ‘Definitive’ Tunebite Review”
No nonsense, no hype – Everything you NEED to know before you purchase Tunebite 9.0.
Well, for your curiosity, why am i writing this Tunebite Review?
I often buy music with DRM protection and am not able to listen to it on my Sandisk Sansa M230. In other words, I’m not able to listen to my favorite songs whenever I want to simply because the music I’ve bought has DRM protection.
On the one hand, I understand that companies do this in order to make the life of people who want to illegally distribute music harder but on the other hand, I want to be able to listen to the music I bought whenever I want to. I performed Google search after Google search and came across several applications: SoundTaxi, DaniuSoft DRM Media Converter, Tuneclone and Tunebite. I tried them all and fell in love (ok, you can stop laughing now) with one of them. I am so impressed that I decided to publish this review in order to let you know just how great it is!
It’s called Tunebite 7 by Audials.com and allows me to convert any of the existing mp3 files on my hard drive into files without DRM protection. It also allows me to convert online music files as well. This makes it ideal as my all purpose conversion suite. As I already own the music I listen to, purchased through a popular music service, removing the DRM protection is the only way to load it onto my favorite MP3 player. All the music I purchase can now be loaded onto my Sandisk Sansa M230 without any problems.
With the Platinum version, you get the following features: record films, music and video from any source on the Internet. Remove the DRM copy protection from all your files and not miss a beat. The files will be converted with perfect audio quality in flawless copies of the original. Over 100 playback and recording formats are available. Use the convenient editor to customize your settings so your media is compatible with every home and portable device you own. Media management includes and lots of extras as well.
The Premium version provides the following features: the only difference between the Platinum and Premium is the ability to convert video files. Video file conversion is disabled and only available in the Platinum version.

What I Like about Tunebite
- Tunebite’s speed is incredible. It can convert any of your favorite music files in less than a minute. You can choose between high quality or high speed conversion options but both are pretty fast. In my experience, converting a file took about 20 seconds, conveniently popping up on the right hand side of my screen as a completed music file. I’ve been using Tunebite for about 6 months now and have been watching it create amazing music files every time. You can even use content from the Web into recorded files. Specific URLs can be loaded into the Tunebite interface to make fully replayable files or you can use an online player to make your recordings. If video is your thing, Tunebite will help you record video files as well. One of the coolest features in the world is being able to capture some of your favorite video files off the Web for your own private use.
- Tunebite’s sound quality is perfect. When you convert a file, what you get is an exact replica. No skips, distortion or bumps in the track. There is nothing else I can really say about it because it creates great files. You can’t really improve on it.
- Tunebite’s file formats include creating output files of MP3, OGG, WMA, WAV, FLAC and WMA pro. The coding of the program is solid, with no integrity issues. No matter how hard you use this program, it refuses to lock or freeze up.
- Tunebite is downloadable as a freeware version as well, completely free of charge. All you have to do is visit the website and download it. Its features are very similar to those of the full version except the additional file conversion types. The wide variety of file conversion types make Tunebite a complete conversion package for any type of media file you would like to use.
- You can add an ID3 tag to your media files for quick and easy cataloging and a whole lot more. Your media files will stay organized and give descriptive details about the files. This is a popular feature in creating custom music libraries and is included in the Tunebite software package.
Things I Don’t Like about Tunebite
- Tunebite could improve upon what happens at the beginning. There’s no walkthrough, so you have to wing it. It’s fairly easy to figure out but a walk-through would be helpful. I like Tunebite for what it is: the ability to remove copy protection from my music. Tunebite handles this very well. If I couldn’t remove the DRM protection, I wouldn’t be able to listen to my tunes on my Sandisk Sansa M230. With perfect quality, there is not much I want to change about it. What I need from the program is simple (DRM removal) and Tunebite does this.
- Tunebite’s price varies according to what software package you would like. Tunebite premium, Tunebite platinum or Audials one. You can pay with Mastercard, Visa, Paypal, American Express and Giropay. The price for Tunebite Premium is currently set at $26.90, Tunebite Platinum costs $39.90 and AudialsOne has a $59.90 price tag associated with it.
- While it’s only available for the PC, there aren’t as many Macintosh operating systems out there (their attitude is understandable if we see things from that perspective but that doesn’t mean they should neglect loyal Mac users). Maybe at a later date, Tunebite will be available for the Mac. Keep your fingers crossed. There isn’t any support for the thousands of audio file formats out there that you rarely hear about but this isn’t a big issue for the majority. Only a select group of tunebite users will desire the additional audio formats. For your standard MP3 music listener, the program is pretty full featured.
Conclusion: Should You Buy It?
Tunebite has been everything I ever wanted in a conversion software package. It makes good use of my time, it’s fast, full featured and affordable. I never have to renew the license, I’m good for life. It does exactly what I want it to do. Now I listen to all my files on my Sandisk Sansa M230 without DRM protection. Why? Because removing DRM protection is the only way to make them play on my device.
I think you’ll like Tunebite just as much as I do, it’s one of the best converters out there. You can’t put a price tag on convenience, so I never try to. I never have to worry about my MP3 files being compatible with my Sandisk or any other device I choose. One thing I do know, in conclusion, is that Tunebite removes DRM protection without a hitch. It allows you to play your files without ever having to worry about anything else. I’m honestly pleased that I bought it, plain and simple!
That’s it and i hope you find my little Tunebite review is helpful, pls feel free to shot me an email any time
