CDex is a CD audio data extraction utility which can rip audio files from your CD-ROM drive. The resulting files from the process are mp3 files or other encoded formats, or if you choose so, a simple uncompressed WAV file.
Several encoders are supported, they include Lame MP3 Encoder, Internal MP2 Encoder, APE losless audio format, Windows MP3 encoder and the Windows WMA8 encoder.
CDex can directly record single or multiple CD tracks, read and store data in the cdplayer.ini file, it supports CD-Text and performs advanced jitter correction. Even if you haven't ripped certain files with CDex, it can also work as a stand-alone wav to mp3 converter.
CDex is licensed as Freeware for Windows (32-bit and 64-bit) operating system / platform from media players without restrictions. CDex 1.78 is available to all software users as a free download (Freeware).
