If you’re a music enthusiast, I’m sure you use your computer to store, rip, and play tracks. Like any other activity, you need the right tools. Fortunately, we’ve got you a list of awesome Windows tools to cover your every need.

I prefer apps that perform one function well over those claiming to do many things but none well enough. That’s what I had in mind while picking these five apps for you.

1. foobar2000

This is a superb music player for Windows, and we recently wrote about its cool features. Foobar2000 has many useful options; it can play any audio format you can think of (and probably a few more) and anyone can learn to use it in minutes. What’s even better is that it can be customized to fit your needs or preferences. With its playlist-like interface, you can easily organize and find your music collection. Give it a try, and I’m sure you’ll enjoy it.

2. Audacity

If you’re an audiophile, you may be at a stage where you want to digitize vinyl records, audio cassettes, and other analog formats on your computer. Audacity is a free, open-source audio editor that can fulfill this purpose. It allows you to effortlessly divide and edit your recordings into individual tracks. Musicians can also use Audacity for recording their own tracks, and it offers additional features such as adding effects.

3. FreeRIP MP3 Converter

We’ve discussed copying music in analog format, but when playing an album on your computer, you likely won’t use the CD. Instead, you can store the tracks on your computer and play them whenever you want.

To do this, you’ll need software to rip the tracks to MP3 or another format of your choice. FreeRIP MP3 Converter is highly recommended and the free version should suffice for most users.

This software can easily rip tracks to various formats and the best part is that it can provide artist and track names from freedb or OpenCD Index if they’re in the databases. It can also convert files between several audio formats, including MP3, Wav, WMA, Ogg Vorbis, and FLAC.

If you want faster software, buy the Pro version, but the free version is still quite fast.

4. ImgBurn

If you only have a digital album and want to burn it to a CD (e.g., for your car), you can use ImgBurn. It is one of the best free optical media burning software available. Download it here to start burning a CD from FLAC files immediately.

5. Format Factory

I prefer apps that do one thing well. Format Factory, a multimedia converter, is one of those apps. Audio buffs will enjoy it. This app can convert between different file formats, including 13 audio file types such as MP3, FLAC, AAC, and MMF. It may not have the best appearance, but it offers many options and is user-friendly. Plus, it’s free!
