EZ CD Audio Converter is actually three tools in one – an audio CD ripper, a disc burner, and an audio converter. Together with these three main functions, this application is also a metadata editor that connects to Amazon, Freedb, MusicBrainz, and GD3 when needed to tag your audio files. As a bonus, it can also extract the audio from most popular video files.
Its clear and easy-to-use interface makes it a suitable tool for all types of users. The program’s three main functions are clearly labeled, and each opens a similar multi-paneled window that shows all the information you need to perform the selected task. The “Audio CD Ripper” interface will show you the tracks in the selected CD together with as much metadata information as the program can gather for you from the online services supported, including the cover art when available. You can tell the program to simply rip the tracks selected (or the entire disc) in an uncompressed format, or convert them on the fly to your preferred codec (FLAC, ALAC, MP3, APE, M4A, Ogg, and AAC are some of the formats supported).
The “Audio Converter” section is very similar to the previous one. Typically, you will use this option when the audio files you wish to convert are already stored on any of your drives. The metadata information provided is also very comprehensive, and you can edit and rename your files from here in a very straightforward way and using the information stored in the files' tags.
Finally, the “Disc Burner” function not only allows you to create new audio and data discs (including MP3 discs), but also to produce an exact copy of any CD or DVD, using its “Disc Image” feature. Thus, the program's support for ISO image files allows to store and burn to disc exact images of your favorite audio and video discs.
All in all, EZ CD Audio Converter is a versatile and highly intuitive application with excellent extra features – there is much more to its functionality than meets the eye.
