I have about 36 CDRs that we made at electro-music 2006. They sound superb. The music is superb. This is something that is just great. I need to convert the CDA files to WAV format so I can master them for release (how and where TBD).

Anyhow, what its the fastest way to do this? Free is desired.

You can use iTunes for this. Turn on the error correction thingie just in case. You must set up the rip prefs to use Wav instead of ACC, Apple lossless, AIF or MP3. Free.

A thought.. most decent DAWs can import CDA. Have you tried this?

Hmm.. and some OSes will let you drag files directly off the CD too. Very Happy
A CD Audio CD is a stream with a list of contents. It is just a matter displaying this list as files ( and embed a song stream in a file.. ( when copied onto some other filesystem ). Use your mac to drag out the AIFFs, then simply recode the 44.1KHZ 16bit AIFF files to WAV.


Have you searched http://versiontracker.com for this btw?
There are shitloads of free apps out there.

I have used EAC for a long time. I have not tried anything else except the built in Nero stuff.

Jan, thanks for that tip. DBPowerAmp works very well. Integrates into the explorer adding right-click convert features. I used to use that but it got lost in my memory. It works very well.

I know there are a million ways to do the. I was just looking for the fastest. I'm happy with this one. Very Happy

here's a guide to a secure way of ripping CDs:

It most certainly isn't the fastest, but I think it's one of the most accurate.
