Rip Audio CD to musical files

AnyBurn can rip Audio CD to several popular musical file formats, including lossless and lossy formats. Lossless formats compress or store digital audio without loss of any information. For FLAC and APE formats, they can compress raw audio data to half of it original size. Lossy formats, such as MP3, and WMA, can achieve higher compression than lossless compression, but may bring slightly quality loss. Usually, lossy formats can compress an audio file to less than one tenth of its original size. 

For loseless formats, AnyBurn supports ripping CD to APE, FLAC, or WAV files. For lossy formats, AnyBurn supports ripping CD to MP3 and WMA files. To rip Audio CD t musical files, please follow the steps,
