CDex is a CD-Ripper that extracts digital audio data from an Audio CD and supports many Audio encoders, like MPEG (MP2,MP3), VQF, AAC encoders. The main purpose of the application is to provide an easy way to extract audio files in wav or another compressed file format, through a simple graphical user interface.
Specifically,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. In addition, WAV files on the hard drive can be converted to a Compressed Audio File (and visa 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.
