12.4. Audio CD Extractor (Sound Juicer)

Audio CD Extractor (Sound Juicer) lets you extract the audio from CDs and convert them to audio files your computer can play. This program also plays CDs.

12.4.1. Using Sound Juicer

To enter track data, insert an audio CD and Sound Juicer will locate and retrieve the data from MusicBrainz (a free service). If 'MusicBrainz cannot match the CD you have the option to enter the track information manually. The notifier will also ask you if you want to submit your album to the MusicBrainz database. You will need to open a MusicBrainz account to submit albums to their database.
To enter track data manually:
  1. Fill in the text boxes for the title , artist , year , and genre of the CD.
  2. Below that is a list of the audio tracks on the CD. You can determine the track title and artist for each track.
To edit the title of a track, first select the track, then click on the title. When you have finished entering the title, press the Enter key. Each track of the CD is automatically updated if they matched the artist before the edit.
Extracting Track Data:
  1. Select the tracks you want to save by clicking on the boxes in front of the tracks. You can also use Edit > Select All or Edit > Deselect All .
  2. Click the Extract button. This will change to a Stop button when the program begins to extract the data. You will see an icon next to the track being extracting.
Press F1 , or Help > Contents to see the manual.
