Audio CD to MP3 Maker is a tool you can use to convert CD audio and digital .wav files into compressed mp3 files. Such tools are often called CD-rippers or extractors. This one is quite advanced: it supports vbr (variable bitrate recording) and multi-thread processing. The first ability allows you to get better quality from the same file size, the second - to extract music from a cd and encode it at the same time. It can also play your cds and mp3 files. Being so advanced, it's surprisingly easy to use with an intuiive interface and well laid-out controls. This limited version can only handle half the tracks on a cd, or half the length of a .wav file, so register it immedeatly if you want to use it.
