Editors' Review

+

We approached Express Rip warily after a morning of reviewing some absolutely dreadful audio software. Would this be yet another semifunctional, poor quality application? Fortunately for us (and you), Express Rip is a refreshingly functional and well-designed piece of software.

The program's interface is attractive and intuitive, with graphical buttons representing its major features. We inserted a CD and the program immediately connected to the MusicBrainz database and grabbed the track names and other album information. Ripping the CD was as easy and choosing a destination folder and choosing from among 21 output formats. The program quickly ripped the tracks and saved them appropriately. To be honest, Express Rip doesn't have a ton in the way of features; users can adjust the encoder settings if they want, and the program gives users a choice between MusicBrainz and FreeDB for album information. There are a few other basic items that can be customized, and that's about it. But we don't love Express Rip for its multitude of features; we love it because it's easy to use and does what it's supposed to do, which is a lot more than we can say for many similar programs. It also has an online Help file that is well-written and thorough, another rarity. We think this program is a great choice for users who need a basic but well-designed CD ripper.

Express Rip is free. The program installs a desktop icon without asking and leaves a folder behind upon removal. We highly recommend this program to all users.

"Fast and Clean"

May 19, 2011

 |  Version: Express Rip 1.81

Pros

I tried iTunes, Windows Media Player, and FreeRip (blech). This is faster than of them. There is no reason I should only be getting 3.9x speed. I got more than that years ago with my musicmatch Jukebox Pro ... too bad Yahoo destroyed that.

Cons

I don't know why they make it so cryptic to choose directory and filename information. Thus the loss of one star. Other than that would be 5 stars.

Summary

If you want a fast ripper, look no further. If you want bells and whistles, bloatware, etc., look somewhere else.

"BEWARE: blue screen of death"

June 04, 2010  |  By debbiedl

 |  Version: Express Rip 1.81

Pros

Software ran ok, but I've had system problems since then.

Cons

My computer has been crashing and burning lately. Finally got "stdriver32.sys" off the screen. The only occurance of this file was part of this software. Didn't connect the system problems with this software until now.

Summary

STAY CLEAR!!!
