AudioCatalyst icon Intuitive software program designed to help you rip digital music from CDs and convert CD files to MP3 or WAV format using simple tasks

AudioCatalyst is one of the most widely used CD rippers and audio encoders ever to meet this software category. Based on AudioGrabber, AudioCatalyst aims to convert CD files to MP3 or WAV format in a few easy steps.

The application relies on XingMP3 Encoder to digitally encode music, which results in tracks of a smaller size without affecting the sound quality.

Clean feature lineup

AudioCatalyst provides users with a simple and accessible interface; a few buttons and some menus on a side ensure that you have easy access to all of its functions.

Ripping features

In order to test and assess its functionality, simply insert your CD in the CD drive, and press "Grab." Once you have selected the music you want to convert, just press "Grab" and then watch the whole process work in the window below.


Of course, the time spent on each audio file depends on its size, so the process can take from a few seconds to a few good minutes. All efforts are worth it, since the result is an MP3/WAV audio file of a decent quality.

Configuration settings

Features include VBR (Variable Bit Rate) encoding (useful for superior compression ratios), the possibility to encode segments of the original audio file, audio comparing and checksum utilities, as well as mono and stereo support.

An efficient and reliable CD ripper and audio encoder

All these considered, AudioCatalyst is definitely recommended in case you need an application that can rip digital music from CDs. Its simplicity and ease of use make it accessible to all user categories.
