I've decided to throw my CD's onto my computer, makes life a bit easier than constantly changing CD's.
Anyway, I've tried Windows Media Player and Real Player converting to WMA and MP3 repectively, but they both screw up the starts and ends of songs, either too early or too late which really pisses me off...
So am I doing something wrong, or is there free software out there that does a decent job?
I use AudioCatalyst. It's a 2-in-1 that comprises of AudioGrabber and the Xing MP3 Encoder.
It's an old program (1999 vintage) but it does a bloody great job. It has CDDB support and it has filters to name the files based on a specific format. Alas, it can only set the ID3v1 tags since ID3v2 tags didn't exist back then, but I don't use tags anyway so I don't mind. It also supports normalisation and can encode the MP3 upto 320 kbps.
There are others like MusicMatch and WinAmp but I like AudioCatalyst because it does what I need it to.
