RipDigital announces CD ripping service
RipDigital recently announced a new CD ripping service to save you time from doing it yourself - ideal for those with large collections of CDs that have yet to digitize them. RipDigital will turn your CD library into an MP3 library of 224Kbs bitrate song files with “a traceable, unique identification code in each converted track” to discourage illegal file sharing. You can opt to have the MP3 library stored on a DVD or a hard drive. Prices for ripping your CD collection start at 100 CDs for $129. After placing your online order, RipDigital will send you all the packing materials for shipping your CDs. When we asked RipDigital if they offer AAC encoding the response was, “Currently we only offer MP3 conversion. In the near term, we’re keeping it simple. I take your point about AAC and this may be something we add down the line.”
RipDigital Launches CD to MP3 Conversion Service
—First-of-its-kind service simplifies the switch to digital music—
New York, New York – December 9, 2003 – RipDigital today announced the launch of the first-of-its-kind CD to MP3 conversion service. RipDigital simplifies the switch to digital music by turning your entire CD collection into an MP3 library—saving a music lover from the frustrating and time-consuming ripping process. The service costs less than $1 per CD.
“It’s a shame that so many iPod owners have less than ten albums on an MP3 player that fits their entire CD collection,” said Dick Adams, founder of RipDigital. “The real reward of digital music comes from having access to all you music, anywhere.”
“CD ripping is a stumbling block for most people,” added Adams. “They either refuse to spend almost a month’s worth of their free time in front of a computer loading CDs one-by-one or they ripped half their CD collection before realizing they set the wrong preference.”
RipDigital turns CDs into high quality, 224 kbs MP3 digital music files organized by artist, album, song and musical genre. As an avid supporter of copyright protection, RipDigital actively encourages responsible use of digital music and discourages illegal file sharing by including a traceable, unique identification code in each converted track.
RipDigital returns music files to customers on a data DVD archive and if you choose, a portable hard drive. All customers need to do is move the music files from the DVDs on to their computer or simply connect the plug-and-play portable hard drive and press play.
“With RipDigital you can rediscover your own music collection with instant access to every track you own,” said Adams. “Take all your music with you on your next business trip and the inevitable layover won’t be so bad.”
RipDigital takes orders online at www.ripdigital.com and provides customers with packing materials and a prepaid Fedex slip that includes shipment insurance. Customers simply pack up their CDs in the RipDigital container (no jewel cases needed) and call Fedex for pick up. RipDigital returns the digital music library and CD collection by Fedex – usually within a week.
