Free Download

Your rating: not submitted

CDex screenshotCDex can extract the information directly (digital) from an Audio CD, which is commonly called a CD Ripper or a CDDA tool. The output audio file can be a WAV file (useful for creating compilation audio CDs) or the ripped audio information can be wrapped using an audio encoder such as FLAC, MP3, AAC, OGG or WMA.

Additionally, WAV files on the hard disk can be transformed to a Compressed Audio File (and vice versa). CDex is also compatible with many audio file tag types like the ID3V2 and ID3V1 tags, which can be directly introduced as part of the ripping task.
