ok but where here and can someone please give me a site! please! AND WHY ISNT MY DVD AND CD ROM DRIVE BEING FOUND ON CDEX OR EXTRACT AUDIO WHATEVER!! HELP!! EVERYTHING IS OK MUSIC CD IS IN THERE ALREADY EVERYTHING INSTALLED PLUGGED IN RIGHT! WHATS WRONG!!!??
Jus found it...here ya go...
CDex any good ?
Been using EAC and found it to rip my cds very slowly...
Like the VBR encoding option.. used to be a l33t audiocatalyst kiddie.
audiocatalyst is by far the best mp3 ripper ive ever used.
i installed ASPI layer and had to use the aspi fix for 2k/xp but its sound now an works fine
ignorance is bliss =)
Audiocatalyst uses non-standard VBR. LAME however uses the correct method of coding in VBR. You'll notice you'll have screwed song lengths in winamp for songs encoded in VBR with AudioCatalyst.
EP: EAC is slower because its doing a 1:1 copy of the song rather than a half assed attempt that AudioCatalyst does. Choose speed over quality in the EAC wizard instead, should boost your speed but may reduce your sound quality.
EAC + LAME = Awesome MP3's (r3mix 4ever =)
Any comments on Audiograbber? I use it + the Lame encoder. It usually does a good job. I haven't tried the others yet but as soon as I get home I will download.
Yeah, guess it could have been faster, wwas trying to rip from a highly scratched cd
VBR confuses the hell out of winamp2 tho! - Used to think it was a corrupt mp3 - lol
nope... i think you were doin somethin wrong cuz it works jus fine for me
I just don't understand how people would "pay" for a crap ripper when they can get an exceptional ripper/encoder for free.
How do you encode VBR wrongly in AudioCatalyst???
You select either a fixed bitrate or VBR(i haven't used AudioCatalyst in about 2-3 years now)
EAC + LAME cannot be beaten.
if it's not encoded in LAME it ain't good.
It's the songs that LAME reject that makes LAME the best.
Is LAME is good =)
excuse me as i make more propoganda posters advocating mozilla and LAME and EAC.
Mozilla owns all browsers =)
well goin to the original question....
there is a plugin for winamp that will directly encode ANY file (hence cds also) to mp3 using LAME encoder, BUT don't ask me for the name nor a place to get it all i know is that i found it on www.winamp.com but i can't remember the name sorry.
and Audiograbber+`lame is nice but you have to pay
so i agree very much with all of you there is no way i would change my EAC+LAME combo for anything yet.
