Audex 0.73 beta1


Audex 0.73 beta1 for Mandriva Linux 2010.2

Audex is an audio grabber tool for CD-ROM drives based on KDE 4.



After a rather long break, development of Audex resumed: now we proudly announce Audex 0.73 beta1 for Mandriva 2010.1 - 2010.2.

Audex is an audio grabber tool for CD-ROM drives based on KDE 4. It creates profiles for LAME, OGG Vorbis (oggenc), FLAC, MP4/M4A/AAC (faac) and RIFF WAVE: install your favorite encoder and use it (of course, for WAVE no external encoder is needed). Beyond that you can also define custom profile, which means that audex works together with command-line encoders in general.


  • Extraction with CDDA Paranoia: so you have quite perfect audio quality.
  • Metadata correction tools (like capitalize etc).
  • Multi-profile ripping (with one command-line encoder per profile).
  • Fetching covers from the Internet and storing them in the database.
  • Creation of playlists, cover and template-based info files in a target directory.
  • Creation of  ripping and encoding protocols.
  • Transfer of files with KDE KIO-Slaves.

* New feature: use eyeD3 for MP3 tagging if available.
