Audiograbber

NEW VERSION 1.83

NO LONGER DEVELOPED
Audiograbber is a beautiful piece of software that grabs digital audio from cd's. It copies the audio digitally-not through the soundcard-which enables you to make perfect copies of the originals. It can even perform a test to see that the copies really are perfect. Audiograbber can also automatically normalize the music, delete silence from the start and/or end of tracks, and send them to a variety or external MP3 encoders, such as Fraunhofers L3enc, or even use some MP3/WMA encoders internally for automatic creation of MP3's. Audiograbber can download and upload disc info from freedb, an Internet compact disc database. You can even record your vinyl LP's or cassette tapes with Audiograbber and make wav's or MP3's of them. Requires lame_enc.dll, extract and put in Audiograbber folder.

Wow, what can't you do with this feature packed CD ripper. I use it as a general audio converter too, extracting my audio to wave 16 bit pcm 48khz using Pazera Extractor, so I can see any errors in the log as it extracts in real time.

Then I pre normalize the wav in Audiograbber and finally pressing the make mp3 option using an external encoderencoder(fdk.end) to mp4a. I get transparency using the command line below which is approx 160vbr and higher. The 16 bit wave 44khz is only suitable for the mp3 internal encoder like Lame 3.100 and the program will give useful messages to warn advise the user. I cannot recommend this software enough. Truly Magnifico freeware!

Worked it out very easily. Enter one of the command lines below in audiograbber 'Predefined arguments:' box, for generating He-aacV1 & He-aacV2 audio. p29 = He-aacv2 by the way.

Files come out fully normalised with no clipping using peak level set to 90 setting! Really tiny files, but perceptual much better quality than Lc-aac or Nero generated ones imho.

Quote "4. Enter the 'Predefined arguments' and find 'FAAC 128kbits/s
In the 'Arguments' box below change the bitrate 128 to %s % d-b160"

It is better to space the end of the argument d-b 160
Also operation 5. Click on the Grab to rip your CD. Great guide nonetheless.

Also not sure if the command line can be manipulated for HE-AAC encoding in audiograbber as the profile argument is based on FAAC. All other encoders as external will not work in audiograbber e.g Nero, FAAC 1.29.2 etc. Only this fdk.end appears suitable as a plugin for xp onwards to encode to mp4a. The audio is fully transparent at 192kpbs(or 160kbps depending on your ears!) and artifact free. I also encoded to as low as 32kbps and ran it through MagiX Audio suite to check for artifacts,clicking etc. None registered. Check audio frequencies with free spek tool. Extremely useful. Audiograbber full of useful options. Superb suite. Command lines for fdk, link below to play with in audiograbber. Maybe some genius can successfully get he-accV2 to work if not me!

Most free CD Rippers(excepting modern ezcd which is commercial) won't allow a rip to aac/mp4, but audiograbber one can using the external encoder option hack.

Go to the link below and scroll down to Fraunhofer FDK section and click on the 0.63_libfdk file to download the encoder. Place it in the audiograbber folder.

1.Make sure the MP3 icon is clicked on the gui. *Also ensure 'Rip all tracks before encoding' is ticked, otherwise you only keep getting one temp file overwritten every time from a CD rip.

2. Go to 'External Encoder' and click it on.
3. Use 'Browse' to find the fdkaac.exe
4. Enter the 'Predefined arguments' and find 'FAAC 128kbits/s
In the 'Arguments' box below change the bitrate 128 to %s % d-b160

Voila you can rip to aac with mp4a extension. By renaming the aacgain.exe 1.9(useful tool found here at VideoHelp to Mp3gain.exe which can then be normalised/checked for clipping etc in Mp3Gain gui or normalised in the audiograbber program itself beforehand. You could probably track down the latest faac 1.29 and do the same again instead of the fdk encoder, but this method works perfectly for ripping CD's to mp4a. Have fun!

You can also just drop in the portable folder updated dll's of vorbis or Lame and they work fine. The libvorbis files at the top of the page link are compatible with Audiograbber. The portable works like a dream. Thanks for that!
