Function: Ripping, Encoding
CD-DA X-Tractor is a fantastic open source
that includes a ripper and incorporates the latest LAME mp3 converter.
Ability to encode to the OGG Vorbis format is also provided.
The program uses AKrip, an open source ripper with great
correction that produces accurate WAV files and fast speeds. Ripping on
Plextor 16/10/40 took only 33 seconds. When output settings were
to rip and encode on the fly with LAME VBR setting at 5 (mid quality),
took a minute and a half and quality was very good.
For a free WAV to MP3 converter and CD ripper, CD-DA
X-Tractor is a steal. Extra
features include CDDB lookup and automatic file naming. Use this program
conjunction with MP3
Burner and you have a complete MP3 package. Great program and
