CDex is an application which is able to record audio tracks from a CD-ROM, and save those files to disk in a standard WAV file. CDex can extract the data directly from an Audio CD, which is generally a called an Audio CD Ripper or CDDA utility. It reads the digital audio data directly from the disc, which can be stored in either a WAV file or a MP3 sound file.

    I have been using this program for a couple of years. It works well, and is very reliable. And it's FREE. With NO adware or spyware.

    This is one of those absolute must have programs. It's a gem, plain and simple.

    A bit spartan interface but it works smooth and no one should complain about it.
    However if the interface/options would be redesigned... hehe

    I've switched to EAC for long term archiving and hifi listening some years ago (not because I hear differences, but because all the technical stuff in EAC seems more trustworthy), but to get some mp3s for simple listening (mp3 player), cdex is still the tool of my choice, because it's simple two clicks and done.

    I would never use this but wanted to check it out for comparison.

    Seriously guys, lose the "hybrid installer"'s ridiculous. Binaries are just fine thanks.
