* Can encode to multiple formats in one session
* Creates M3U playlists
* Allows for each track to be by a different artist

My go-to CD ripper. Simple and intuitive, but gives several options for encoding. The CDDB option stopped working, but goebbe (below) says to replace the freedb option with --- which works.

Very useful and easy to use "ripper". I converted my CD-Collection to FLAC-files. It can download the Interpret/ Titles for CDs. In Preferences/Advanced/CDDB use "" to get the titels."

I had a great experience using Asunder to convert my CD collection to MP3's and other formats. Love the way it scrapes the metadata from the Internet. I then used Easytag to add album art which was a good combo.

This seems OK, but I take issue with how it RIPS a cd into WAV, then while still ripping, encodes WAVS into the target format. This has the result of taking longer to do the entire operation (of ripping a CD) , than if it just 1) ripped entire CD to WAV. 2) stopped 3) Encded ripped WAVs to target format. As 1 1-click solution it's ok, but for A-Older machines, or B-large batch operations, this is counter-intuitive. Preferences seems to be devoid of any setting that would allow this functionality. a CDex clone this is not.

Easy to use. Clean interface. Works great on Mint 18.3 Cinnamon (3.6.7) 64-bit

It seems to do the job. But why do you limit MP3 encryption to 245kbs, the standard for quality seems to be 320

Great and simple 'no-nonsense'-CD ripper. Makes et perfectly simple to convert my CD collection to flac files the way I want them. Highly recommendable!

Would be even better if FLAC was bundled with it since it's a common lossless format.

Very nice GUI except for lack of ability to change MP3 encoding options.

A great CD ripper. My drive isn't the best, but Asunder takes time to read the disk properly and produce a good result.

The only CD Ripper I Use. Took a few min. to find and install lame, after that it's all good.

It has more options for encoding than Sound Juicer, but it can not use MusicBrainz as a CD DataBase
