Fast, easy-to-use, configurable, and affordable audio CD ripping and batch conversion tool that provides complete FreeDB/CDDB2 support, options to automatically name output files from CDDB data (configurable) and save CDDB data to audio file tags, optional creation of output folder using CDDB album and artist info, error correction, block and buffer size control, ripping speed and jitter mode settings, convenient playback of audio tracks, option to maintain folder structure for conversion output, automatically transfer audio tags, and much more. Supported output formats include WAV, MP3, WMA, OGG, ADPCM, A-LAW, u-LAW, DSP, GSM, MP2, and VOX. The comprehensive range of supported output formats makes the software very flexible, and provides a complete solution for users to convert to most any audio format desired with ease.
It provides extensive frequency and bitrate options that allow for maximum control of the conversion output. When disk space is an issue, such as for portable MP3 players, select a lower bitrate to conserve space. Otherwise, when audio quality is a must, select one of the higher settings. Constant Bitrate (CBR) options are available for the best compatibility with both hardware and software players, and Variable Bitrate (VBR) is also provided for further optimized file sizes.
With RapidRip, the possibilities are vast. Convert from CD to MP3, CD to WMA, CD to OGG, CD to WAV, CD to MP2, MP3 to WAV, MP3 to WMA, MP3 to OGG, WMA to MP3, WMA to WAV, OGG to MP3, OGG to WAV, OGG to WMA, and many more combinations among the supported formats.
Added to all the technical capabilities of RapidRip, one of the major advantages of using it is ease of use. Significant care was taken to ensure the softwareâ€™s interface is easy to use, yet without sacrificing the powerful functionality. Conversions can be performed on an entire CD (or any selection of tracks desired) simply by selecting the tracks in the list and clicking the Convert button or menu item.
