ACXtractor

CNET Editors' review

This audio-ripping app handles its basic job well enough but could use some polish, especially in terms of appearance. ACXtractor is not one of the better-looking rippers we've seen. The interface is bland, unattractive, and cluttered with several needless buttons and fields. The utility rips CD tracks into WAV, MP3, and OGG files. Clicking the Options menu item lets you change the bit rate and the codec. We were pleased with ACXtractor's ripping speed, which was faster than many other similar programs we've tested. This ripper also can access the online CDDB to retrieve track information and even includes a very modest audio player. If you're pressed for time and need a quick way to rip MP3s, this app is a good solution despite its totally uncompelling design.

    "Easy to use and very reliable"

    December 15, 2006  |   By dre belgium

    Version: ACXtractor 3.2

    Pros

    Even scratched disks are very well readable without errors using a good player; best results with DVD player. Track naming is very easy and flexible; multiple track can be saved in one operation.

    "Fantastic piece of software"

    October 7, 2005  |   By robwales

    Version: ACXtractor 3.2

    Pros

    Used this software for the last 3 years - easy to use, fast and reliable.

    Cons

    To the idiot who posted review below, maybe pal if you took time to read the instructions to enable ASPI or SPTI, you would have saved yourself a lot of bother. Also, there are no bugs in this software nor is it a RAM hog. OK, so it dont have whistles and bells, but its simple and functional.

    "This program rocks!!!"

    Version: ACXtractor 3.2

    Summary

    A marvellous CD ripper that exactly makes what it promises. It is very easyly to use and converts the ripped CD tracks as MP§ or OGG. The compile filename function will automatically create filenames with subdirs like U2\Rattle And Hum\Desire.mp3 .
