If you have a scratched CD which you want to copy without distortion Exact Audio Copy grabs the content using multi-reading technology almost perfectly. No special drives are required just standard CDs and DVD-ROM drives. The tool helps make 1:1 copy of your files, create ID3 tags besides setting a couple of naming rules. You can make copies of files for archiving purposes.
The software’s focus is not on look but is on functionality. You can choose which mode you want to extract your CDs either secure, burst extraction or fast. The way you grab the content of a CD determines the output quality. Using the configuration wizard, you can retain songs in archives with high-quality choose FLAC or WMA Lossless in the “Encoder Selection Window”. If the CD/DVD-ROM has uncorrectable errors, the program will help you identify the position of the distortion so that you can control it with a media player for instance.
You can set the application to generate ID3 tags for individually extracted songs. Use a drop-down menu to customize the naming scheme. Output formats such as MP3 and WMA are suitable for use with portable players since they are compressed formats whereas uncompressed extraction integrally preserves the original sound. Less experienced users can use the software.
