Audio CDs are nowadays the most popular format to sell music albums. The audio is recorded on these discs using a digital format (PCM), which allows playing frequencies that are higher than those perceived by the human ear. However, the tracks cannot be copied directly to your PC; to do so, you need to convert them into another audio format by a process called “ripping”.
Audio CD Ripper offers to extract audio from music CDs. It supports some output audio formats, such as MP3, WAV, WMA and OGG. This program has an unattractive yet intuitive interface, which can be customized with different masks that will only change the color of its elements. Ripping a music CD is very easy. You will just need to insert the music CD and this application will automatically show the available tracks. Then, you will be able to select the desired tracks, the extraction format and the destination folder for the resulting audio files. By setting such parameters as quality, frequency and channels, you will be able to additionally customize the results. Furthermore, this tool will also allow you to edit file tags.
As a whole, Audio CD Ripper is a nice application. However, it is a paid program. In this regard, perhaps you would like to save a couple of bucks and use the copy CD function in Windows Media Player.
