CDEx – Open Source Audio CD Ripper

CDEx is an audio extractor that can extract data directly from an audio CD. The audio can be saved to multiple audio formats and the tracks automatically named using online disc information.

Many encoders are supported, to name a few:

* Lame MP3 encoder
* Internal MP2 encoder
* APE lossless audio format
* Ogg Vorbis encoder
* The Windows MP3 encoder (Fraunhofer MP3 encoder)
* NTT VQF encoder
* FAAC encoder
* Windows WMA8 encoder

In addition, WAV files on the hard drive can be converted to a Compressed Audio File (and vice versa). CDex also supports many audio file tag formats like the ID3V1 and ID3V2 tags, which can be automatically inserted as part of the ripping process.
