What's CDex?
CDex can extract the data directly (digital) from an Audio CD, which is generally called a CD Ripper or a CDDA utility. The resulting audio file can be a plain WAV file (useful for making compilation audio CDs) or the ripped audio data can be compressed using an audio encoder such as MP3, FLAC, AAC, WMA or OGG. Many encoders are supported, to name a few:

  • Lame MP3 encoder 3.99.5 - MPEG Audio Layer III (.mp3)
  • FLAC encoder 1.30 - Free Lossless Audio Codec (.flac)
  • Ogg Vorbis encoder - Ogg 1.3.2 and Vorbis 1.3.4 (.ogg .oga)
  • Monkey's Audio encoder - Lossless Audio(.ape)
  • Microsoft WMA encoder - Windows Media Audio (.wma)
  • Internal MP2 encoder - MPEG Audio Layer 2 (.mp2)
  • Yamaha VQF encoder - TwinVQ (.vqf)
  • Astrid / Quartex AAC encoder
  • Psytel AAC encoder
  • External Xing encoder
  • WAV output encoder
  • FAAC encoder - Freeware Advanced Audio Coder
  • FAAD2 decoder
  • Gogo-no-coda encoder
  • External musepack encoder
  • NTT VQF encoder
  • Windows MP3 encoder (Fraunhofer MP3 encoder)
  • Windows WMA8 encoder

In addition, WAV files on the hard drive can be converted to a Compressed Audio File (and vice versa). CDex also supports many audio file tag formats like the ID3V1 and ID3V2 tags, which can be automatically inserted as part of the ripping process.
