WildFire CD Ripper is pulling out the data (music) directly in digital format from an Audio CD; this kind of software is in general known as a CD Ripper or a CDDA utility. The resultant audio file can be a pure WAV file (useful for making compilation audio CDs) or the ripped audio data can be compressed using an audio encoder.
Here are few supported encoders:
1. Lame MP3 encoder
2. Internal MP2 encoder
3. APE lossles audio format
4. Ogg Vorbis encoder
5. The Windows MP3 encoder (Fraunhofer MP3 encoder)
6. NTT VQF encoder
7. FAAC encoder
8. Windows WMA8 encoder
Additionally, WAV files on the hard drive can be converted to a Compressed Audio File (and vice versa). WildFire CD Ripper also supports numerous audio file tag formats like the ID3V1 and ID3V2 tags, which can be automatically inserted as part of the ripping procedure.
