8.2. Converting Audio CDs to Music Files

Sound Juicer is the application that rips the CD into audio files on your hard disk. Ripping is the word for converting audio files from CD to file, with each music track on the CD saved as a single file. The default file format is Ogg Vorbis , a free and open alternative to the MP3 format. Vorbis offers better performance in a smaller file than MP3. When a ripping from a commercially produced CD, Sound Juicer displays the music track names, downloading the information from a free database on the Internet.

[Note] Vorbis is a lossy format

Similar to MP3 , Vorbis compresses the music track to a smaller file with very little loss of musical range or quality. Files can also be saved in the lossless WAV or FLAC formats. However, the resulting files are much larger.

The Sound Juicer Manual is available in the application, by going through Help > Contents .
