Ripping or extracting a track off a CD is as easy as right clicking on the track and converting. These settings are used for ripping audio CDs.

 

Store songs in folder with artist’s name

This setting will create an artist folder under the "Converted Audio Files" directory. The freshly ripped track/converted file will be located in this new sub-folder.

 

Use Artist In Song’s File Name

This option will cause the software to create the ripped file to be called something like "Bubba Smith – My Silly Dog.mp3". The artist is "Bubba Smith" and the track is "My Silly Dog"

 

Use Album In Song’s File Name

This option will cause the software to create the ripped file to be called something like "Bubba Smith - Whole Lot Of Fish - My Silly Dog.mp3" or "Whole Lot Of Fish - My Silly Dog.mp3" depending on your other options. The artist is "Bubba Smith", the album is "Whole Lot Of Fish" and the track is "My Silly Dog"

 

Use Track Number In Song’s File Name

This option will cause the software to create the ripped file to be called something like "Bubba Smith - Whole Lot Of Fish - 1. My Silly Dog.mp3". The artist is "Bubba Smith", the album is "Whole Lot Of Fish" and the track is "My Silly Dog"

 

Look Up CD Track Info On Freedb

This option will cause the converter to look up the album, artist and genre information from an online database of CDs called FreeDB. Thus, you will have files with the actual artist information. If you wish to change the freedb server, go to freedb.org and type in the new server in the edit box.

 

Rip Speed

This allows you to set the speed of the rip. The default is "Max" which is the maximum speed possible for your CD drive. You may choose a slower speed for more accurate rips.

 

Jitter Correction
Seriously, some CD drives cannot seek or move to an exact time offset on the CD and, thus, it is possible to have errors when copying a track. By default, the software automatically detects whether or not it needs jitter correction.

 

q    If needed – This is the default.

q    No - Do not use jitter correction. (Faster, possible inaccurate rips.)

q    Yes – Use jitter correction. (Slower, more accurate rips.)

 

Error Handling During Rips

It is possible to have a rip error if a track especially if the CD is dirty or scratched. By default, the software will attempt to re-read the erroneous track info 10 times. The other options are:

q    Ignore Them – Ignore errors and rip as if nothing happened. J

q    Retry – This will retry reading the erroneous area for the given # of times.

q    Abort – This option will halt the rip if an error occurs.

 

 

FreeDB

The remote database is freedb.org . It is a FREE online database of 1000’s and 1000’s of CD albums and track information. When you put a CD in your CD drive, our software queries the database in order to get the artist, album and track information.

 

MANY, MANY thanks to the people and volunteers behind freedb.org!
