khaos_dj posted a topic in SoftwareHi everyone Quick story short. First time I ripped my 50 CD's, it was to ALAC using iTunes. Didnt like that I was using a compressed format so I re-ripped everything to AIFF, again using iTunes. Yesterday, I came back from the CD store with two CDs I had just purchased. I started ripping the first CD and when it was about to finish ripping, the last song completely slowed down (the ripping stopped for a few secs, then continued). I was left curious as to why would this happen with a brand new disc. Then I decided to listen to the last track to see if anything had happened to the song during the rip. To my surprise, the song had skip/jumps/scratchy sounds! I could not believe this has happened! I thought by having check marked the "use error correction when ripping..." it would take care of any error! That's when I realized that ripping was more than just picking a format, iTunes was doing a pretty bad job at ripping my CDs and I knew I had to take it to the next level (because ripping again my whole collection was gonna take me a whole day for the third time and I definitely dont want to rip a fourth time). After all, the whole reason of buying CDs is to have maximum quality and iTunes was not been helpful on this! So then I remembered about a website I visited which had a tutorial using EAC: Installing, configuring, and ripping with Exact Audio Copy (EAC) Now, I have a few questions before I start my ripping 1) Is EAC the best program to rip using Windows 7? I see a lot of EAC vs dbpoweramp, but EAC seems to get a 60% of the votes. 2) Is there any better program than EAC? If so, which? 3) Is that guide good, great, excellent or horrible? Would you recommend me to (if I opt for EAC) to rip using that tutorial? 4) The tutorial is made to rip in the FLAC format, but I prefer uncompressed formats since HDD space is NOT an issue. Does any of you guys know what would I have to change/modify in that tutorial to make the best AIFF rips? Thanks all for your help, this is definitely one of the best audio forums I have found and Im glad I found this place!
