What about time limitations on the trial? Some of the Aimersoft software limits to one minute. Is that true for this software? Also, should I only use a clip that is strictly one minute (assuming the free trial is limited to one minute) or would it easily convert the first 60 seconds of a much longer song and then play the sample for me? I need to know before I download.
Finding a way to unlock protected WMA songs and convert them for play on an iPod touch has been very frustrating. Most software won't allow for good DRM WMA files conversion.

Hello, Alexander. You can download and have a try by yourself. There is no functional difference between the trial version and the full version. 
Who knew it could be so easy to remove DRM from WMA files.  This software makes the process super simple, even for a novice.  Very happy I tried it out.  
And, how does the price after trial ends compare with similar software?  Or, is there anything similar in the market?  It will be nice to try out the software.  Thanks for the suggestion. 
Recently, I heard someone complaining they couldn't get audio when using this software.  I don't think they read that part of your article: "... make sure your WMA songs play well in Windows Media Player. Otherwise, there may be no sound in the output audio files."  This little tip saved me so much time and headache.  The first song I converted didn't have sound.  But, once I followed this advice, the rest were perfect.  Thanks so much.
For anyone who has tried this software, what is the audio quality like? It seems like a very worthwhile software.  Just wondering how well the audio holds up to the process.
