Audio - Conversion (17)

CUETools v2.1.6 Updated

  • Released on 9 Dec 2014
  • Suggested by freakazoid

CUETools helps ensure an album image is preserved accurately by managing lossless audio and CUE sheet format conversion. Since many applications don't keep track of preserving gaps and CUE sheet contents during conversion, or don't support all possible CUE sheet styles, CUETools preserves both with no loss in quality.

CUETools includes CUERipper, an extremely powerful yet easy-to-use CD ripping program, with features like lossless and lossy encoding options, EAC style logs, automatic metadata look-up and AccurateRip verification.

it's not stealth
the last stable version saves files inside AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\CLR Security Config\v2.0.50727.312\64bit\

The included CUERipper program is utterly superb and should be mentioned in the description I strongly think since it doesn't have enough attention and currently doesn't show up in results (I'll fix that in a sec).

It has an easy to use yet poweruser-friendly interface, produces EAC logs with AccurateRip information, offers Burst/Secure/Paranoid ripping modes (with Burst correctly set by default), allows for image or track rips, verify options and moe.

And one of the main features which solidified my switch: both it and the main CUETools offer a metadata search UI that displays the extended tag info such as Publisher, Barcode, etc. The only ripper I've tried which displays and tags this.

When I try to get XMedia Recode 3.3.3.0 (XMediaRecode3330.zip) I get "Not Found" error. Has anyone managed to grab this version?

@smaragdus. Yep, not working, looks like the file is missing. I have contacted the author of the software for a fix.

Pazera Free Audio Extractor v2.9 Updated

billon on 29 Jul 2018
  • 34MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 29 Jul 2018
  • Suggested by jack

Pazera Free Audio Extractor takes the audio from most major video files without loss of sound quality or converts them to a variety of common audio formats. The program can also behave as a simple conversion tool from one audio format to another (e.g. AAC to MP3).

Some supported formats include (audio) MP3, AAC, AC3, WMA, M4A, FLAC, OGG, WAV, ALAC, WavPack, AIFF; (video) AVI, FLV, MP4, MPG, MOV, RM, 3GP, WMV, VOB, MKV, WebM and OGV.

Note: By default, the program will extract/convert to MP3. Select "Try extract original audio stream" to avoid re-encoding. This is faster, but may result in a format some devices can't read. Additionally, the program has a number of predefined settings (profiles) specially designed for novice users. More advanced users can easily customize audio encoding parameters with output parameters.

Is LameXP the only audio encoder that can convert opus files?

webfork on 2016-05-20 02:07

I converted something to Opus yesterday with LameXP but TEncoder and TAudioConverter will also do the trick.
