CDA to MP3 Converter has been developed to allow the conversion of CDA files to MP3 and to other audio file formats. Since CDA files are the files generated by Windows to represent the tracks of an audio CD, by converting these files this tool actually works as an audio CD ripper.
What makes this application stand out from the crowd is the large number of supported file formats. Although its name suggests that it will convert only CDA to MP3, it actually supports converting to and from tens more other formats. There are few other audio CD rippers that can output the extracted tracks to so many file types. I really like that it lets you configure the file parameters such as frequency or bit rate for each of these formats. Furthermore, it can batch process multiple files at once. I also like its very neat and simple interface, even though it can’t be resized or customized. Joining multiple CDA files together to one single larger file is another handy feature worth being mentioned.
Last but not least, this program lets you add ID3 tag information to the output files. I also appreciate the fact that it can keep these tags during the conversion from one format to another.
Briefly, this application is one of the best solutions when looking for an audio CD ripper that can extract and save the CD tracks to a lot more other file formats than just the ubiquitous MP3.
