"Save your maney and time"
This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
This is embarrassingly bad. For starters, no Intel version a year later, and, if you want to rip to mp3, you install the PPC version (for which you don't need this app to use, just install the LAME codec into your Quicktime folder). To discover that it's PPC-only, I had to dig; these ppl are slightly dishonest in not admitting that they've not bothered to offer an Intel or UB version.
I've tried using this for over a year and it always just doesn't quite seem to do the job--oh yes, sometimes it does, but so slowly I'm transported back to my days owning a Mac SE30, 1990 vintage.
There are better, free/open-source apps for this or a similar set of cross-rippers elsewhere. Try Max or Audacity, and if you want real power, pay for Amadeus Pro (and please donate to the open-source developers). Why is it that this, MusicMan, and SoundConverter suck so badly while open-source solutions all seem to work better?
