Most important of all, FreeRIP is easy to use and fast. The contextual search button allows you to look for information about the selected track, and the ripping process is quick and simple. FreeRIP functions impeccably ad it doesn’t crash or display errors.
Other features that may attract your attention are adjusting audio tracks volume, the integrated support to create playlists in various formats (M3U, PLS, B4S, HTML and CSV) and the multi-language interface.
The latest versions of FreeRIP have been improved with an option to open output folder on rip end and with the ability to refresh the file list at the end of file dropping in converter/tagger modes.
