Computer programs and music

Audio grabber is a beautiful piece of software that grabs digital audio from cd's. It copies the audio digitally - not through the soundcard - which enables you to make perfect copies of the originals. It can even perform a test to see that the copies really are perfect. Audiograbber can also automatically normalize the music, delete silence from the start and/or end of tracks, and send them to a variety or external MP3 encoders. Audiograbber can download and upload disc info from free db, an Internet compact disc, and database. You can even record your vinyl LP's or cassette tapes with Audiograbber and make wav's or MP3's of them. Expand your digital music collection with Audio Catalyst. It's easy to make MP3 files from all of your CDs - just insert the CD into your CD drive and go! With Audio Catalyst you get high-quality MP3s with very small file sizes, so you can have more hard drive space for your music. Audio Catalyst also includes the new Xing MP3 Player so you can create playlists; organize your MP3s, and more.
