What is Exact Audio Copy?
EAC is used to convert the tracks on standard audio CDs to .wav files, which can then be transcoded into formats such as MP3, Ogg Vorbis, WavPack, and FLAC using external encoders.
EAC also includes a small wave editor that has some neat functions that could be very handy when handling extracted audio files. As a restriction only CD-compliant uncompressed, 16 bit, 44.1 kHz stereo samples files can be used.
It supports freedb, AccurateRip (automatically compare your copy with rips from other people) and can automatically create Cue Sheets, with all gaps, track attributes, ISRC, and CD-Text included.
With other audio grabbers you usually need to listen to every grabbed wave because they only do jitter correction. Scratched CDs read on CD-ROM drives often produce distortions. But listening to every extracted audio track is a waste of time. Exact Audio Copy conquer these problems by making use of several technologies like multi-reading with verify and AccurateRip.
