    Hi,

    I use CDex Version 1.51 to convert my Audio CD songs to mp3 format, when i play my converted mp3 song it's so soft compared to the cd, meaning the music its not that loud compared with the CD i play.
    Is there something i miss???


    Cheers :)

    yeah 3 mins per song is about average, though it all depends on your system. VBR 192 or VBR 256 is the best setting. make sure this setting is in place: EAC > EAC Options. CLick tools tab. Make sure "On extraction, start external compressors queued in background" is checked. That way it will start compression while the CD is ripping and goes quicker. It takes about 20 to 30 mins to rip and encode a audio CD, but trust me it is worth it. Its the best quality you can get. EAC is the only ripper with error correction to ensure a 100% accurate rip, and external LAME is hands down the best mp3 encoder there is.
