Editors' Review

A good ripper makes all the difference when transferring your CD tracks to MP3s. FreeRIP not only extracts and converts your audio tracks but also finds and downloads CD and track information and presents it in editable form right on the interface. It's easy to start right up with FreeRIP, but it includes a multi-language manual as well as tutorials and FAQs, if you should need them. FreeRIP supports the most common audio formats, not only MP3 but also FLAC, Ogg Vorbis, WMA, and WAV. It can also convert files between any two supported formats. Of course, FreeRIP can also play your files.

FreeRIP's nice-looking interface includes three tools: the Ripper, Converter, and Tagger. We loaded an audio CD in our burner's tray. FreeRIP scanned and displayed the contents, automatically retrieving the CD's meta tags and displaying them in the right-hand sidebar. The program's colorful toolbar accesses all necessary functions, including an Options Window, which is a compact pop-up for setting program preferences. FreeRIP offers many more data fields for both tracks and albums than most users will need, but those who do will appreciate not only the detailed tags but also how easy it is to enter and edit data. FreeRIP can rip your CD tracks and save them in the low-loss FLAC format, which preserves more of the original quality. You can play them on your PC in the high-quality format, and then convert them into MP3s for your portable player later on.

We pressed the Rip CD button when we were ready, and FreeRIP processed our CD quickly, ripping and converting the batch of tracks one by one, and tracking the progress of each in a pop-up. If you have lots of CDs to rip and little time to do it, there's a paid upgrade, FreeRIP Pro, optimized for multicore CPUs. It offers faster ripping and other options, such as prioritization. But we had no problem with waiting a little longer, and the quality is the same, so we were perfectly happy with the freeware version of FreeRIP and the files it creates.

"People need to read more before posting comments"

May 06, 2012  |  By Noblel0x

 |  Version: FreeRIP 3.66

Pros

It does the job, and it is not too bad an interface, tries to keep it simple and user friendly, but makes it that bit more convoluted for more advanced users, but hey it's free!

Cons

Yes it wants to install a toolbar - BUT YOU DON'T HAVE TO, YOU CAN SAY 'NO'
Yes it is slow - BUY THE FULL VERSION IF YOU WANT SPEED!

Listen people, hard to believe, but companies don't write software for the happiness it brings, they want to sell it, and this App, does the "Buy the full version" nagging as nicely as you can hope for. It does not limit how much you convert, it just slows it a little. If speed is all important, then buy the full version, is that too much to ask?

"Tries to install Yahoo Search bar"

March 02, 2012  |  By Maximus929

 |  Version: FreeRIP 3.66

Pros

I'm sure it works great just fine like everyone says but 2.5 immediate points off for attempting to load a bunch of junk into my browsers. The default case just lists a bunch of stuff to install including "toolbars" which I recognized as code for "Get ready to have Yahoo et all slammed at ya whether you like it or not! Have fun getting rid of it.

Cons

The default case just lists a bunch of stuff to install including "toolbars" which I recognized as code for "Get ready to have Yahoo et all slammed at ya whether you like it or not! Have fun getting rid of it.
Hate software that does this stuff - and they're pretty sneaky about it.
