very fast, thought my cd might shatter. i dont think its as good as CDex (which i am still looking for thru all of my old downloads) but its close.
I use fre:ac on an almost daily basis, its my goto tool for audio ripping and conversion
Great conversion utility, clean UI, easy to use, functional and fast. Rating it 1 star because your CPU temp gets high!, come on!, upgrade your CPU/FAN first, no problems running it on my Athlon II X2 2.80 GHz, dual-core desktop. Reviews like this ruin the whole concept of user rating.
Insanely fast conversion!
High quality free software, fast and reliable. Download the x64 builds for even faster conversion.
