FreeRip Software Review

FreeRip is CD Ripper software that will take raw digital audio from a Compact Disc and save it as standard computer audio like an MP3. I have listed all the conversions possible at the bottom of this post. Like all rippers it will try to find your disc information on the web but if it cannot, or the previous person did a bad job with the file names

and information, you can edit them yourself, even add the Album Artwork if you wish. The program is free and I have tested it for years and it works great. They have a super deal, at the tome of this post, for $4.99 Pro version which lets you “take advantage of the multi core architecture of newer PCs,

spawning as many parallel file conversion tasks as the available CPUs. This means that converting, let’s say, 20 FLAC files to MP3 on dual core machine would take roughly half the time it would be needed on a single core machine with the same clock speed”. This was a mouthful from their website but it works. It will use your multiple processor cores to greatly speed up your downloading time which is extremely helpful if you have stacks of CD’s to process. This is not a paid review by any means, I just love this program!
