For a number of years now, NCH Software hasn’t failed in providing users worldwide with a flexible and versatile software utility to create and burn CDs, DVDs, and Blu-ray discs – Express Burn. This high-quality burning tool gives us all the features we need to create data, video, and audio discs in a straightforward and reliable way for an affordable price if compared to similar yet more popular burning tools. Home users needing to create and burn normal CDs can even enjoy Express Burn for free.

The program comes with a clear and easy-to-work-with interface, where you need to choose the type of disc you wish to create first. The types supported include audio, video, data, and ISO discs, including MP3 CDs and DVDs. The next logical step is to select the files that will go on the disc, and then, depending on the type of disc selected, make use of the extra tools and utilities provided to enhance the final product. Thus, Express Burn can create audio CDs from any selection of MP3, WAV, WMA, Ogg, or FLAC audio files (among other formats), which will be re-encoded (and, if so desired, normalized) on the fly. Video files will also be re-encoded into the required video codec when creating a video DVD or Blu-ray. You will also have the chance to create and manage chapters, and even add a menu to navigate the disc properly. Data discs are even easier to create and burn – ISO/Joliet, UDF, and hybrid file systems being fully supported.

As it happens with all other NCH software tools, Express Burn provides you with links to other NCH tools that you can download and install to complement the existing functionality. Thus, you can combine Express Burn with WavePad to edit your audio files prior to burning them to disc; ExpressRip to rip audio tracks from your favorite CDs; VideoPad to edit your video files; Doxillion to convert all types of documents into your preferred formats, or FileFort to back up your sensitive data to disc using Express Burn, among other interesting tools.

Regardless of the type of disc you wish to create, Express Burn guarantees you full support for all recordable and re-writable discs, as well as for all the most popular video and audio codecs. Its comprehensive set of extra features and utilities (including disc copy) makes this all-in-one tool an excellent app to produce both amateur and professional discs.
