Name: Audex
Version: 0.62b
Type: KDE CD/DVD Software
Depend: KDE 4.x
License: GPL
More Info:

 Due to the lack of a good cdda extraction tool
with view on archival funtions, audex is a new
audio grabber tool for CD-ROM drives based on KDE

The assistant is able to create profiles for LAME,
OGG Vorbis (oggenc), FLAC, FAAC (AAC/MP4) and RIFF
WAVE. Please install your favorite encoder.
Of course for WAVE no external encoder is needed!
Beyond the assistant you can define your own
profile, which means, that audex works together
with commmand line encoders in general.

Some features are:
*  Extracting with CDDA Paranoia. So you have
quite perfect audio quality.
* Extracting and encoding run parallel.
* Filename editing with local and remote
CDDB/FreeDB database.
* Submit new entries to CDDB/FreeDB database.
* Metadata correction tools like capitalize etc.
* Multi-profile extraction (with one
commandline-encoder per profile).
* Fetch covers from the internet and store them in
the database.
* Create playlists, cover and template-based-info
files in target directory.
* Creates extraction and encoding protocols.
* Transfer files to a FTP-server.

NOTE: If you upgrade from 0.5 please delete your
old profiles!
