CDex – Open Source Digital Audio CD Extractor

CDex can extract the data directly (digital) from an Audio CD, which is generally called a CD Ripper or a CDDA utility.

The resulting audio file can be a plain WAV file (useful for making compilation audio CDs) or the ripped audio data can be compressed using an audio encoder such as MP3, FLAC, AAC, WMA or OGG.

It supports the following: Lame MP3 encoder 3.99.5 – MPEG Audio Layer III (.mp3), FLAC encoder 1.31 – Free Lossless Audio Codec (.flac), Ogg Vorbis encoder – Ogg 1.3.2 and Vorbis 1.3.4 (.ogg .oga), Monkey’s Audio encoder – Lossless Audio(.ape), Microsoft WMA encoder – Windows Media Audio (.wma), Internal MP2 encoder – MPEG Audio Layer 2 (.mp2), Yamaha VQF encoder – TwinVQ (.vqf), and many others.

Features include:

  • Direct recording of multiple tracks.
