I've been using Magix Audio Cleaning Lab (ACL) since it first came out. Like the old VW Beetle, development of ACL has been evolutionary versus revolutionary. Like the Beetle, they got it pretty spot-on the first time around.

If you have vinyl or tape you'd like to digitize, restore and potentially improve the sound of then ACL Mx is probably the best consumer-grade software made to do this ...bar none. To get software with higher capabilities you'd need to spend hundreds, if not more, for pro-grade audio restoration software.

Nothing is free ...and in this case the "cost" for the magic of Magix ACL Mx comes with having to *read* the quite extensive manual you print once the software is loaded. You need to learn the software. To get the very best results (and they are very good indeed) you have to be willing to read and understand how the various functions work (especially the noise removal functions) and be willing to manually set some parameters (again mostly noise removal) as opposed to letting the "automatic" features take reign. So if you're already thinking "Eeeewww ...I have to read!" or getting a headache thinking about technical tweaking then do yourself a favor and pass up on ACL Mx. You'll buy it, get ticked off 'cause it's not a one-button instantaneous fix or because the results you get ...by letting the software make decisions/adjustment for you ...aren't what you imagined. And then you'll come here and wrongly bad-mouth the software.

If on the other hand you're willing to learn the software, understand its features, how to use them effectively and you're willing to experiment a bit to get yourself up to speed ...then you'll find you can do some very nice restoration work on your old vinyl or tapes.

I used the Windows XP version of Audio Cleaning Lab (versions 10 and 12) for many years, until I had to replace the computer that I used for audio editing and CD burning. My new computer is a Dell laptop with Windows 7 installed, and my Audio Cleaning Lab 12 software is not compatible with Windows 7. So, I downloaded and installed Audio Cleaning Lab MX for a 30-day free trial.

With respect to importation and editing of audio files, the MX version of the software works at least as well as ACL version 12. Some changes in the user interface were not advantageous, in my opinion: I miss having a zoom-in, zoom-out control available as a button to change the cursor function, as one identifies edit points in the represented wave form for an audio object within a project; the MX software puts this function under an Options tab or title on the menu bar.

I have used previous versions of Audio Cleaning Lab primarily to clean up old audio recordings from LPs and cassettes, and to compile various types of spoken word material (lectures, debates and interviews) for export onto audio CDs, so that I can play them in my car on frequent long trips. ACL has always been very easy to use for such CD burning -- much less cumbersome than the accursed user interface that the Windows 7 version of Windows Media Player has.

Unfortunately, whenever I have tried to use Audio Cleaning Lab MX to export a virtual project (containing any significant editing of any of the original WAV audio files) to an audio CD, the MX software has produced an error message, citing some breakdown in communications between the ACL MX software and my CD-ROM drive; changing the writing speed, calclulating all effects in advance, or using the "CD assistant" wizard had no effect; the same error message was produced.

This program does everything I want it to do. I have used 3 previous versions of this product, and knew that each new version was better than the last. The only problem I had was that it is laid out entirely different than the previous versions, which took time for me to learn the new format. Seems to work better and faster than previously. Highly recommened.

I had used V.10 of this product for a number of years under MS XP, and recently upgraded to the MX version when I switched to a new PC using Wind. 7 and running an i7 chip. I used the older version to transfer both LPs and tapes (cassette and reel-to-reel) to CD. Not only did Audio Cleaning Lab simplify the transfer process, I found that it did an excellent job cleaning snaps and crackles from the LPs, and hiss and distortion from the tapes. The older version did have a few quirks, tho, including sometimes hanging up when too many past projects were saved in file (It simply does this without a save command. It was easier to go into the file on occasion and clean it up rather than turn the "save" off.)

Anyway, that was the only glitch and the new version fixes that. It also adds some additional features, but the automatic "cleaning" function works extremely well. It does not seem to be as sensitive as the older version, however, so a new user may want to play with the software a bit.

Both old and new versions of Magix ACL lets you save and record to different types of audio file, which is a great feature.

If you are looking for software to clean LP and cassette tape audio and burn to CD-ROM, you should seriously consider this product.
