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.

"Why put fake titles in?"

October 21, 2014  |  By KatieInAthens

 |  Version: Express Rip CD Ripper 1.97

Pros

Works, rips and saves.

Cons

Just throws in random titles! So I have to change all the titles and that is so time-consuming! Do I want to purchase this software for more features? No. I'd rather there were NO titles than to input the wrong ones!

"Worked great until the nag screen kicked in..."

September 22, 2014  |  By sandmjoy

 |  Version: Express Rip CD Ripper 1.97

Pros

Fast, easy to use.

Cons

Online databases sometimes wrong. Switching between them often (but not always) corrects errors. Cryptic files structure navigation takes some getting used to. Developed a nag screen that kicks in after each song rips. Blech. Despise nag screens.

Summary

Despite my complaints, better than most I've tried.
