You can buy it at RegNow for that price.
Reliable. Intuitive interface and easy-to-use settings. Does not consume too much RAM when converting. Reasonably priced.
You can only register your product key to one computer.

I first tried Soundtaxi when a friend recommended it a year or two ago. Ever since then I have been using this software on a regular basis to remove the horrible DRM that is on most music nowadays.

Soundtaxi has several advantages over some of its competition, first and foremost a very user-friend interface and intuitive functions. It is easy to sit down and within moments have it working on the first song. It works at a decent speed and it is possible to have it running in the background while doing other things (though I would not suggest doing this while playing games, if on a laptop.)
- With a variety of options regarding the files, extensions and placement of the converted files, SoundTaxi is ideal to have if you are to remove DRM daily or at least often.

The Soundtaxi software is reliable and I have only ever experienced one crash. All in all, I am very happy with it and I think it is a lot better than the other programs I tried to work with, though I have only tried 3-5 different ones.

Soundtaxi comes at a reasonable price (I believe I took the second cheapest plan) and while that naturally had some limitations regarding the time it took to convert, it worked perfectly.

The only negative thing I have to say about Soundtaxi is that you have to key in your computer to your specific product key. This means that when your laptop explodes (as mine did) you have no option to activate your product key on another computer, as far as I am aware of. Though I was greatly annoyed by this (having said ok for it in the ToS) I found myself buying another copy as I got my new computer, almost before updating relevant drivers on it!


A must-have for people with a need for converting music to DRM-free files often. It is a simple but to-the-point program that does exactly what you need it to do, even if you do not use half the options available to you.
