Editors' review

Strong configuration choices and zero cost make Audiograbber a great choice for those who want to rip CDs, but newbies may find themselves overwhelmed by the interface. Installation is simple and does not make any serious modifications to your system. The program lacks a start-up wizard--when the program presents itself, it's not immediately clear what one should do. Luckily, built-in help eases some of the learning pain. The number of options for ripping is staggering. Features include music normalization, support for recording LPs and cassettes, external MP3-encoder support, and ID3-tag editing. Ripping time itself is average. For those needing a powerful ripper with all the bells and whistles, Audiograbber won't disappoint.

    "Stable, easy-to-use, quick application"

    October 27, 2013   |   By dd_armstrong

    Version: Audiograbber 1.83 SE

    Pros

    I've used this since it was a paid application, and feel that it is basically 99% of what you'd need to rip, transform and mass edit MP# file information. Very quick, simple and clean. Easy to configure new codecs, etc.

    Cons

    When it became freeware, it ceased evolution, so not the most "modern" of applications anymore, but still it's my go-to ripper of choice.

    "Great tool"

    November 30, 2012   |   By victork1

    Version: Audiograbber 1.83 SE

    Pros

    I've been using it for years, I have ripped about 200 CDs in my collection, I think there was a fail just once. Lots of things to configure, including the possibility to bump the volume of a rip job (ideal when you rip pre-90s CDs). Some other cool features too, like chain ripping if you have tons of CDs. MP3s result in great audio quality, which experts attribute to a better designed ripping tool (when analyzing what to leave out for compression).

    Cons

    Can't rip to FLAC or any lossless, if I'm not mistaken.

    "Used to rip to MP3 but now only does .wav"

    December 27, 2011   |   By AspieMum

    Version: Audiograbber 1.83 SE

    Pros

    Easy to use when it works

    Cons

    Even with the settings the same as before now when I rip a disc I get .wav files when it is set up to give me MP3 files. I then have to use a second program to convert them to MP3 and then rename them to get rid of the _converted that program adds in to the name.

    Summary

    This program has been available for a long while with no updates and it used to be brilliant. Nowadays it still is if you want .wav files only but if you want MP3 files it no longer works. May be it should have had an update by now.

    "EXCELLENT - WHEN IT WORKS"

    December 12, 2011   |   By wwwgjsnet

    Version: Audiograbber 1.83 SE

    Pros

    Works as well as commercial products. The "Eject when finished" feature is good. Helps speed up extractions without monitoring.

    The days of needing a thick stack of audio CD discs to handle long audio books is over for anyone using MP3 files. Other formats MAY be technically superior to MP3 in terms of files space vs quality.

    BUT - and this is a BIG but - MP3 remains a common standard. I am VERY irritated to see "CD players" that do not play MP# discs. Of course, today, with small MP3 players so common, when "wired for sound" alone on long hikes and bike tours, MP3 files on players such as Sansa Clip etc are the only way to go.

    By the way,- at least for spoken word - 64 BPS Bit Rate (or even lower) extractions result in high quality audio that sounds as good to me as higher bit rates. I confess NOT having a golden ear.

    Cons

    Now and then, when ripping CD audiobooks to MP3 files, Audiograbber stops working mysteriously. Later on, after rebooting PC, it works OK again. To avoid the hassle of restarting PC, when this happens, I usually shift to AlltoMP3 program for extractions.

    Summary

    GREAT FREE PROGRAM. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. SO FAR, SO GOOD
