FreeRIP 4.5.2
A CD ripper, burner, audio converter and MP3 tagger

FreeRIP is a straightforward CD ripper, with a bonus audio converter, ID3 v1/2 tagger and other tools thrown in.

The ripper works just as you'd expect. Insert an audio CD, freedb support means it'll usually be recognised, the artist and track names displayed. Choose your destination file type (MP3, OGG, WMA, FLAC, WAV) and folder, click "Rip Disc", and your tracks will quickly be saved to disk.

The audio converter and MP3 tagger work in much the same way. Click View > Converter, say, and import your source audio files. Choose your output format from the same list, click Convert, and watch as the new music files are created.

There's also a simple audio CD burner, which again is very easy to use. Add a few audio files, optionally set your preferred write speed, and click "Burn Disc".

If you do need more control, there are a few low-level settings in the Options dialog. You can choose your default file format pattern, audio quality, output folder and more.

There's also a commercial PRO version which offers better performance, and "unlimited bulk file conversions".

Please note, our FreeRIP download would by default have installed several browser extensions, and set Yahoo! as our browser default for just about everything. If that doesn't appeal, watch closely during installation, click the "Custom install" option when it appears, and clear the relevant checkboxes.

Verdict:

FreeRIP doesn't have the best interface, but it's easy enough to use and has a good range of audio functions and features.

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 (v11.0.6)

Free Full Commercial Software

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 is a compact, simple, but surprisingly feature-packed disc burning suite.

The program makes it easy to create simple data discs and audio CDs, for instance: just drag and drop your files onto the list area and you'll be burning the finished disc in a couple of clicks.

That's just the start, though. Burning Studio 2013 can also create data discs with customised, interactive multi-page menus, perfect if you'd like a more professional way to share and present the disc contents.

A built-in backup tool allows you to create backups which may be encrypted, compressed, and span several CDs, DVDs and Blu-rays.

And there are modules to create VCD or SVCD video projects; burn video DVDs or Blu-ray discs from prepared folders; create, browse or burn disc images (ISO, CUE/ BIN and Ashdisc formats are supported); copy discs, erase them, design and print disc covers, labels and booklets, and more.

The focus throughout is on ease of use, though, and so Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 remains very straightforward, whatever you're doing. Most disc projects are created via the same simple interface, and for the most part all you have to do is drag and drop the necessary files. But experts will find more advanced options are only a click away, and if you need to then you can set ISO and UDF version, enable Joliet, make a disc bootable and more.

Note the download here will take you to the Downloadcrew Software Store where you can download Burning Studio 2013.
