You may recall that I have reviewed the flagship burning suites from Ashampoo, a while back. Now they have released two, updated replacements, entitled Burning Studio 20, and Burning Studio 2019, which is now free (originally $29.99 USD). They make great gifts and would be an excellent gift to give one’s loved ones. Let’s dive and see what they have to offer.
Burning Studio 2019 offers you more of the same from prior versions, but it has highlights that stand out from the crowd. One I want to mention is that if you own a late-model of a vehicle, it now supports over 1,600 templates to make some compatible discs for playback on the road. If you want CD-A audio, that displays the metadata of the song that is playing, you cannot go wrong. It even allows you to make discs that have special cases for car radio modes.
One, other feature that I want to highlight is that in today’s world, keeping you data secure and safe is a top priority. Many devices and storage devices allow you to set passwords to keep prying eyes out of your data, but optical media has lagged behind. Now, with this iteration, you can add password-protected dialogs to keep you discs being read by anyone. This is akin to having a password on an archive file (.zip, .rar, and ,7-zip, etc.), and works just as flawlessly. If you have sensitive data, definitely use this to keep them protected.
As for Burning Studio 19, it has the same backbone as the family of the Ashampoo Burning Studio family. It has many features carried forward from previous versions and is a solid product. As this was the previous paid version, it would pay you to try this version out, if you are on the fence for opting for a paid, up-to-date version of this software. In fact, it is a free upgrade, if you are using an older version of the program. You would be hard pressed to find a better product for this price point.
As this year draws to a close, getting close to Christmas, and New Years, many new memories will be made. You owe it to yourself to keep these memories safe and accessible. These are vital and irreplaceable, so back it up, and maybe keep this in mind for this said purpose. Until next time, Merry Christmas, God Bless, and a Happy New Year and keep on techin’ . . .
