Free CD to MP3 Converter

By Eusing Software Free Editors' Rating

Editors' Review

Download.com Staff Feb 27, 2009

This freebie CD ripping software might not be the speediest on the scene, but conversion to MP3 audio files gives it a boost.

If you opt for MP3, you may wait around longer than you'd like, as the program first extracts songs to temporary WAV files before converting them to the compressed codec. In our tests, the application had no trouble obtaining track information from the Internet. As you might expect, the program lets you set the bit rate and use VBR compression, but the ability to normalize tracks is a welcome surprise. Ditto for the audio-conversion and recording tools, which are quite basic but still work just fine.

Note that when converting files to MP3 or WAV formats, you won't actually see them show up in a queue, though you can still process tunes in batch mode. The utility can also now compress WAV files into the OGG format. In the end, this piece of freeware makes a strong case for itself.
