Name: Audex
Version: 0.71b3
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

Audex creates profiles for LAME, OGG Vorbis
(oggenc), FLAC, FAAC (MP4/M4A/AAC) and RIFF WAVE.
Please install your favorite encoder.
Of course for WAVE no external encoder is needed!
Beyond you can define custom 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.
* 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 with KDE KIO-Slaves.

IMPORTANT NOTE: If you upgrade to Version 0.70
please delete your old configuration file:
rm ~/.kde4/share/config/audexrc

NOTE: In Version 0.71 the command line preset for
MP4/M4A (AAC) was optimized. If you use MP4/M4A
(AAC) please delete the old profiles and create
new ones with the codec scan.
