Is there a one-step MP3 Ripper/Encoder program that uses LAME encoding?

    Im not too knowledgeable into the really technical stuff of MP3, so you'll have to forgive me...

    I hear that EAC and LAME will give me the best MP3 audio possible, but the problem with that is i gotta rip it to WAV, then come back and encode it with LAME. Is there some program out there that'll do it on the fly, like Im used to MUSIC MATCH JUKEBOX... Just load the CD, wait for the CDDB load, then press RECORD, then im done. Is there a program that does that but encodes with LAME instead of XING which i think MMJB uses? Thanks

    You can use LAME as a MP3 encoder plugin in EAC. So you shouldn't need a additional program to do both ripping and MP3 encoding. Sorry if this doesn't answer your question exactly.

    personally I like the way that I can rip alot of CDs rather quickly. and then encode them with a batch file later, perhaps while I am snoozing.
    My Plextor CDRW has pretty good error detection so I am able to rip at over 20x speed. So it doesn't take long at all to go through each CD.
    (am I the only one who doesn't like using the term "ripping"?)[​IMG]

    I use CDEX www.cdex.n3.net
    Very fast one step ripping and encoding. Can use paranoja ripping and lame encoding.

    Hugh, others:

    Can EAC rip two CDs at once if they are in two separate CD/RW drives?

    Thanks,

    Ken

    eac does allow this, and I have thought of doing it, but my plextor rips so much faster than my Toshiba DVD that I don't really bother. I'm lazy enough as it is.

    there is an option or a hint somewhere that makes me specifically know that eac allows this, but I can't remember where.
