Key Features River Past Audio CD Ripper :
- Input Selection
River Past Audio CD Ripper accepts audio CD as input. It is compatible with the ASPI engine from either Nero or Adaptec.
- Output Format
River Past Audio CD Ripper supports the following output formats.
WAV is a universal format which can be read on almost any audio software on all computer platforms, including MacOS and Linux.
- AVI (Audio Only)
- MP3 (MPEG Layer-3)
- OGG (OGG Vorbis)
- WMA (Windows Media Audio)
MP3 is commonly used on personal portable audio players. It supports high quality compression.
Many internet download sites use MP3 formats.
WMA (Windows Media Audio) is Microsoft's audio compression format. It is used on some portable audio players,
and used for internet audio streaming.
OGG Vorbis is an open source audio compression format which provides similar quality as MP3, without the expensive loyalties.
Why do we provide audio-only AVI as an output format? If you are using video editing software on a different platform,
like MacOS or Linux, your software may not take MP3 or WMA as input. Although WAV should be accepted without any problem,
its uncompressed large size makes transferring files between platforms time-consuming. However,
most likely your video editing software would take an audio-only AVI with compression as input.
- Codec Control
With WAV, MP3, and audio-only AVI output, you have the full control over sample rate, channel, resolution (8-bit or 16-bit),
With WMA output, you have the choice of many pre-defined profiles, targeted at different usages.
