Chapter 6. Using MP3 > Authoring an On-Demand MP3 File

Authoring an On-Demand MP3 File

Although you’ll be using previously prepared uncompressed audio files in these examples, in creating on-demand files, both Audiograbber and iTunes support one-step ripping and encoding directly from a CD into an MP3-encoded file. If you don’t need to do additional processing (EQ, compression, and so on), don’t bother making the separate steps of ripping CD audio to WAV or AIFF files and then encoding those files to MP3.

Using Audiograbber and LAME

Audiograbber doesn’t automatically come with a codec to encode to MP3. When Audiograbber is launched on a Windows computer, it detects an MP3 encoder (if any) within the Windows OS. Because Audiograbber usually chooses a Windows add-on with limited capabilities, you can download a free plug-in for Audiograbber called LAME (for: “Lame Ain’t an MP3 Encoder”). With LAME available to Audiograbber, you can encode MP3 files up to 320Kbps.
