    whipper is described as 'Whipper is a Python 2.7 CD-DA ripper, fork of the morituri project (CDDA ripper for *nix systems aiming for accuracy over speed) and representing its ongoing development, providing bugfixes and new features. Uses cdparanoia, MusicBrainz, AccurateRip' and is an app in the Audio & Music category. There are eight alternatives to whipper for Linux, BSD, Windows and Mac. The best alternative is Exact Audio Copy. It's not free, so if you're looking for a free alternative, you could try CUERipper or morituri. Other great apps like whipper are Grip (Free, Open Source), Rubyripper (Free, Open Source), CDDA paranoia (Free, Open Source) and KAudioCreator (Free, Open Source).
