Max is an application for creating high-quality audio files in various formats, from compact discs or files.
Required OS: 10.4
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 formatsâ¦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)
