I always use Audiograbber. It takes tracks from CD's and immediatly encodes it to mp3. You can encode anything with it too. It's a good and fast allround program.

Get i from: http://www.audiograbber.com-us.net/

and get a crack at: http://www.astalavista.box.sk

Personally, I don't use MP3's anymore. I use OGG vorbis compression. It's far superior to MP3 and its a completely free and open source format.

Audiograbber does not use Fraunhoffer's CODEC, it uses Xing's. If you want the Fraunhoffer you need to get Blade Encoder. Don't have a link, but it's the actual Fraunhoffer algorithm's.

I think AudioCatalyst (Xing) is the fastest but Lame is the best quality. Assuming we are sticking to MP3s that is... http://forums.murc.ws/ubb/wink.gif

I believe Audiograbber does use Fraunhoffer's CODEC (click settings / general settings / internal) But i may be mistaken and i am using the freebie version is that bad?

I use media player 7. http://forums.murc.ws/ubb/smile.gif

Vorbis sounds cool, although since I get a lot of mp3s from the net, it doesn't make a lot of sense to convert them to ogg.
