This ripper has perfect integration of LAME for MP3 (it supports other formats too) and also supports multiple processors for encoding as long as ripping is fast enough - this way I can rip my audio CDs in two minutes each!

The best ripper/encoder I've used for Mac. It's free, but there's a way to donate on the app's homepage. (And no, I have no affiliation with the software whatsoever other than as a user.)

0.7.1 has a problem on MacOS 10.5 Leopard. Use 0.8b ("unstable" release) instead.

I don't know who keeps changing the release date. 0.7.1 was released Jan 19th 2007 ...not a day earlier in 2008 like it says right now.

What's with the release date, 1-1-1970?"

YES! Long live the Unix epoch!

What's with the release date, 1-1-1970?

Note: the recommended vorbis encoder is aoTuV Beta 5, since june 2007.

Apparently Max uses aoTuV Release 1 (changelog says 1.0), but I couldn't confirm by checking the file tag, as I don't currently have on Mac OS any software that could let me see the encoder version tag. I guess there must be a command line binary that would show this.

This is the ripping application Mac users waited for. Doing all possible formats…simultaneously!

only problem I've had with this app is that it didn't fully tag my ID3 tags, well, for year and genre at least. I know this could be done manually, buttt, when ripping cds to my collection, it'd be nice if it could tag everything so I wouldn't have to double check. This could be because it uses MusicBrainz for its tagging (though I'm not sure)
