Acoustica CD/DVD Label Maker review

$22

Manufacturer: Acoustica

Our Rating: We rate this 4 out of 5

There are number of good CD/DVD label designers on the market, but Acoustica CD/DVD Label Maker is a cut above in terms of flexibility, learning curve, and ease of use.

There are number of good CD/DVD label designers on the market, but Acoustica CD/DVD Label Maker is a cut above in terms of flexibility, learning curve, and ease of use.

Everything you need is either right in front of you or available via right-click context menus. Acoustica CD/DVD Label Maker also supports any number of different jewel cases, inserts, and labels.

The only thing we missed was the ability to design disc sleeves (although Acoustica CD/DVD Label Maker does print sleeve labels), which are what we've switched to from jewel cases to save space. You can of course futz this by inserting a white circle into the layout to cover where the window area of the sleeve will be, but that's hardly optimal.

We like some of Acoustica CD/DVD Label Maker's bundled artwork, but much it was rather run-of-the-mill.

Buying Acoustica CD/DVD Label Maker, however, gets you access to a lot more content that you can download free of charge. There's also some pay-per-pack content which, as you might guess, is bit more professional in appearance. However, more artistic users can skip the downloads altogether, as Acoustica CD/DVD Label Maker lets import your own artwork.

  • Overall: We give this item 8 of 10 overall

Acoustica CD/DVD Label Maker worked perfectly in our tests. We especially liked the direct import of iTunes playlists for printing and the support for Lightscribe. Other than the lack of a template for sleeves, Acoustica CD/DVD Label Printer is a top-notch labeling design tool.

    Orlogix VirtualDrive 9.0

    If you play a lot of games at home then you might find the following scenario familiar. You're itching to play Dungeon Siege II, for example, but when you try to fire it up, your PC tells you that the wrong disc is in the drive. Opening up your CD drive you find that Mum's been playing Scrabble again and, what's more, she seems to have mislaid your precious DSII disc.
