Chapter 11. Working with Audio > Ripping CD Audio

Ripping CD Audio

If you're used to fully functional jukebox products like those from MusicMatch, Microsoft, and RealNetworks, Studio's CD Audio tool will seem mundane. But while it doesn't compare to these products in flash and features, at least you'll know the files you create using the CD Audio tool will be compatible with Studio.

To rip a CD audio track

In the Movie window, place the Timeline scrubber where the audio should be inserted (Figure 11.6).

Figure 11.6. Position the Timeline scrubber where you want Studio to place the ripped CD audio.

To open the CD Audio tool, do one of the following:

  • Click the Audio Toolbox icon (Figure 11.1), then click the CD to switch to the CD Audio tool.

  • In the Studio menu, choose Toolbox > Add CD Music.

    The Audio toolbox opens to the CD Audio tool (Figure 11.7).

Place a CD in the CD drive.

Studio performs one of the following actions:

  • If the CD is new, Studio prompts you to enter the name of the CD (Figure 11.8). Enter the appropriate name.

    Figure 11.8. Studio tracks your CDs by the title you enter here.

  • If you've ripped tracks from this CD previously, Studio automatically recognizes the CD and inserts the name (Figure 11.9).

    Figure 11.9. The second time you load the CD, Studio remembers it.

Select the desired track.

If desired, select the Start and End locations by doing one of the following:

  • Slide the Trim calipers to the desired location.

  • Type the desired setting in the transport controls or use the Trim scrubber to move to the desired location, and then click the controls that set your Start and End locations.

  • Use the Jog buttons next to the Start and End Location counters.

Click the Add to Movie button.

Studio rips the CD-Audio track (Figure 11.10) and adds the track to the selected location (Figure 11.11).
