RipEditBurn is a powerful Wave and MP3 editor and sound recorder, which can Rip and burn CDs, edit sound, convert your vinyl records and cassettes to CD, and much more.
Click on the Rip icon, and click on Refresh CD and then click on Disc Lookup. Disc Lookup presents you with the entire CD. You can use Digital or Analog rip, Rip to Edit, Rip to Burn, and and Rip to Music Library.
(Charlie Schlueter was my trumpet teacher, back in the day. He went on to do 25 years as principal trumpet with the Boston Symphony Orchestra. Great trumpet player and teacher!)
Click on the Edit icon. You can record, edit, add effects, zoom into the part of the wave file you need to see, set the record device, adjust the volume of the recording or playback, even set the left/right volume for what you are recording.
The effects include Amplify/Deamplify, Center Channel Removal, Chorus, Echo, Equalize, Fade In, Fade Out, Flange, Notch Filter, Mix, Mono To Stereo, Normalize, Note Scrubber, Reverse (which reverses the sound), and Voice Warmer.
No, it’s not quite as grand as RipEditBurn Plus which has Bass Boost, Compression and Limiting, Noise Gate, Low Pass, Scene FX (which puts the sound in various halls), and Voice Changer (which really changes the voice, you’ve got hear it to believe it!). If you don’t have any use for those effects, choose RipEditBurn.
The tools include Vocal Reducer which can reduce vocals if they are in the center channel, Record Cleaner a plug-in that removes clicks, hum, pops, hiss and other noise from audio recording (yes, you have to have Record Cleaner installed), Overdub (yes, you have to have Overdub installed) and Split Files into Tracks (yes, you have to have WaveBreaker installed).
Click on the Burn icon, and you will be presented with the CD burning screen. If you went from the Edit screen, it will ask you if you want to burn the wave files in the Edit screen. You can add tracks, delete tracks, clear the list, audition the track, normalize all the tracks, and- you can burn the CD!
