Rip Music to WAV Files with FreeRIP

This section provides a tutorial on how to rip off music from an audio CD to WAV files using FreeRIP.

The first test I did with FreeRIP was to rip off music tracks from an audio CD to WAV files:

1. Create a folder C:\temp\wav on my hard disk to store ripped music files.

2. Insert a music CD in the CD drive and start FreeRIP.

3. Click menu File > Settings > Options. The Options dialog box shows up.

4. Click the Output tab. Change the settings to:

Default encoding: WAV
Output Base path: C:\temp\wav
Output file name format: Artist\Track Number-Track Title.ext
Converter uses input filenames: checked

5. Click menu Rip > Rip Selected Tracks. FreeRIP starts to rip all tracks on the music CD, since all tracks are selected by default:
Rip Music - FreeRIP Track Selection

6. FreeRIP display a progress window while ripping off music tracks from the audio CD.
