This is one of the best software I’ve personally used, this includes audio and video converter. Some more features like video editing, audio editing, video capture, audio recorder, data CD/DVD burner, audio CD burner,Video CD (VCD/SVCD) burner etc are also available.

Audio capabilities of Blaze Media:

This is a paid one, but you get a free version too which is more than enough for basic needs. But if you are looking for a professional solution and don’t mind paying a few $$, then my recommendation is to go for the pro version. You get to evaluate the pro version for 15 days.
