When I was primarily a Windows user, I used a program called CDex to rip CDs to my hard drive. I loved this program primarily because of the following features:
- Automatic ID3 tagging using CDDB
- Custom file naming
- Automatic playlist creation
- It was free!
Unfortunately, I have yet to locate a comparable program for OS X that, at minimum, provided the same features I listed above. I do not mind paying so long as the software works well.
Is there any CD ripping software out there that works as well as CDex does, if not better? The thing to keep in mind is that older Apple computers come with built-in optical drives; whereas, in newer machines, the optical drive is an external USB device.
Please Note: I am not looking for iTunes as an answer as my goal here is a simple piece of software that outputs MP3 files to my hard drive with the ability to customise file naming.
