  • Autoplay ripping CD to MP3?

    I got this idea from a friend...
    Is it possible to rip a CD to MP3 in the background while I'm playing that same CD?

    Will it do this like autoplay, you just set it up one time then it works eveytime no questions asked, the most you might have to do is sort the MP3's later?

    Thanks

    Only if you ripped it using analog. You'd have to listen to the cd straight through and have it recording it and encoding it at the same time.

      I was hoping to play via analog and rip digitally.
      The same track thatís playing that is, Iím very sure that you canít rip a different track than the one youíre playing hehe

      Any ideas are welcome
      Thanks

        Actually, I believe Real Jukebox lets you record digitally while you listen to the song. I think it records into mp3 and then plays back the mp3 as it records it. So i think you need a fairly fast computer to do this since you have to encode and decode at the same time.

          Well, yea, you can listen to an mp3 after it's been ripped. (Listen to 1-5 while it's ripping 6)

          I do that all the time

            If you have good ripping software and a good drive, it only takes about 10 minutes to rip an entire CD.

            Most of us just rip it and get it out of the way as fast as possible, for later use.

              It's more for when a friend is in my car and says check out my new CD... Pop it in to the CD drive and listen to it but in the background it's ripping it to mp3s...

              It's just an idea

                SoundJam (for Macintosh) will begin playing the CD that is being encoded as it encodes. For the first track it begins playing after a few seconds of the track is encoded, since it is actually playing the MP3 file not the CD. I imagine there must be some PC application that can do this?
