This is a software tool to help extract audio tracks from Audio CDs and convert them into one of the popular formats such as MP3 and others.
You are able to rip tracks from a audio CD and convert them into WAV or MP3 formats. The ripping is direct, meaning no intermediate format needs to be generated. The program will convert the ripped track into WAV or MP3 on the fly. Since this uses the SSE and Hyperthreading in the recent processors, if your PC has one of those then the conversion will get speeded up. The tool also uses the LAME codec that has established itself as a clear winner among codecs. This tool can help you organize things quite well too, as it lets you collect CDDB information and also edit this metadata. Organizing the converted tracks based on the album, artist and other related data is absolutely easy.
If you are looking for converting your CD collection into the most popular electronic format and then organize them efficiently, here is the right tool for you. Best part is that it is free to use and has the features of most of the priced ones. Only problem seems to be that besides WAV and MP3, other formats are not available. OGG, AAC etc. are some formats that are quite popular now. The tool is supported by a preview player so that you are assured the tracks have been converted alright. With the support of multi-session CD/DVD and all their writable variants, this is one complete tool that can be useful. If you do not fancy these other formats then you can simply start using it!
