Windows 7: A program that will rip / burn music

A program that will rip / burn music

I use WMP at the moment but I would like a program that will allow me to "mix" the stuff when I burn CD's for the car - some of my old CD's are really not the greatest of qualities and I just want to get a little more "feel" into them.

Any ideas ? a free one would be nice but not absolutely necessary.

Have an Asus Xonar DG card in if that is of any help.

If you want to "tweak" the actual tracks you might want to use a separate editor before burning the final disk.

You may also try Goldwave Digital Audio Editor to rip and tweak your music.

GoldWave - Audio Editor, Recorder, Converter, Restoration, & Analysis Software

It is not a freeware though. (USD 19 for one year and USD 49 for a lifetime license.) I had used it to convert all my audio cassettes to CDs removing tape hiss, maximising volume and doing other tweaks.

It is worth trying the evaluation version for atleast a few of your CDs.This evaluation version is limited to 150 commands each session and 2000 commands total. When the session limit is reached, a reminder message will appear whenever you use a control in the Control window. Saving the project,exiting and restarting GoldWave will let you use another 150 commands without interruption. The program will stop working when the total command count is reached.

(When I used Goldwave, there was no total 2000 command restriction and so I converted all my cassettes without any problem saving, exiting and restarting at the end of the 150 commands. After converting all my cassettes, I was so happy with it that I purchased a lifetime license - the only one then - but have not used it since then.)

Audacity works very well for it's purpose. I use it several days a week to make minor changes to audio files---removing noise, fading out noisy endings, boosting the level slightly, converting stereo to mono, etc. You can re-save any given file in various formats--mp3, WAV, etc.

Regarding ImgBurn---it's also quite good, but is different from most burning applications----you have to make a "playlist" file of the songs you intend to put on the CD. You then burn from that playlist file.

The other CD burning apps I have used do not require this playlist step, but it's not a big deal. You just get the songs in the order you want them to be on the CD and then save a playlist file with any old name and then burn it. The playlist just adds another step that takes maybe 10 seconds to accomplish.

ImgBurn has a pretty good forum. The forum has a set of guides that show you how to perform most common burning operations, for music CDs and otherwise.

ImgBurn does not rip. I use CDex to rip.
