  • Anyone use ROXIO to create mp3's?

    As my carputer approaches compleation, I am looking for a good utility to convert my 400+ cd's into mp3's.

    I have looked at FLAC - It is susposed to be lossless, but I had a little trouble getting it to work. I kind of gave up, but will figure it out if there isn't another lossless encoder out there with a better user interface.

    A friend suggested ROXIO...Anyone use this?

            Using EAC, I converted a few CD tracks to .wav last night and the file sizes were about 30 MEG. Lets see, thats 180 gig for 400 cd's with 15 songs per cd. Since I only have 80 gig hd, I guess must compress.

            I then converted a few to mp3 (again using EAC) and file sizes were 3-4 meg. So now the question is...can you hear a difference between the uncompressed .wav and .mp3???

              This is a subject you should search on. To some, yes. To others no. Me I can tell the difference up to 256. It also depends on the system you are hearing it on. If you want to know if you can tell...LISTEN TO IT...

                  I do not want to compromise sound quality, so maybe the best thing to do is to get another hard drive and run uncompressed wav files.

                  I allready have 80gig, so another 180 gig should do it.

                    ahhahahahah the mp3 mistery arrises once again.

                    Find a website called www.howstuffworks.com they explain the mp3 issues really good.

                    MPeg Layer 3 "MP3" is a compress version of a wave file. What happens is the mp3 is cut down on the UPPER and LOWER frequency range of any sound sample. Frequencies you cannot hear!!!. Now when you play an MP3 you arent actually listening to an MP3 you are listening to an uncompressed version of the file.

                    Any mp3 play ALL IT DOES is uncompress the file. So in turn, if you CAN hear a diference the RIP was ****ty as hell. If you CANNOT hear a difference the rip was good.

                    VBR 190 to 320 - is the best to save on space and best quality. WHere the music is at its lowest, it will use a LOW BIT RATE, when the music is at its highest it will use a HIGH BIT RATE, to maintain its quality.
                    What im curently listening to.
