CDRevolution has a straight forward, easy to use drag and drop interface which makes copying standard audio and data CDs simple.
  • Audio CDs are copied with the same fidelity as the original.
  • Data CDs are copied with 1:1 accuracy.

And when you don't have a blank CD at hand, an image of the original CD can be saved to your hard drive for burning later.

There is a Quick Start Guide that shows you just how easy it is to copy a CD with CDRevolution.

What's New

Version 1.13:


  • Any corruption found in CD Text data no longer causes CDRevolution to crash or ignore blank discs
  • Any malformed MCN (UPC/EAN) album codes and ISRC track codes no longer cause a burn failure

Things I'd like to see (and this is just me talking, you understand):

1. The ability to actually edit the file metadata (tags, that is) IN the app rather than having to do it via iTunes.

2. Being able to specify A graphics file for the cover art and not having to embed the art in every track via iTunes. (Maybe this could use iTunes to get the album art from the iTunes Store? Is that even possible to access from outside iTunes?)

3. When album art is added, the archive's icon should be a thumbnail of the art. This wouldn't be anything special in Tiger, but under Leopard with Coverflow...

4. When an archive is created, it should be named Artist - Album. It should also default to ~/Music rather than ~/Documents.

5. An browser which would be able to burn the album archive files to a DVD in a way similar to iTunes.

This is a VERY interesting approach to archiving music, and it seems to have a lot of potential. I don't know that it's what I need right now for myself, but it certainly could be in the future. I look forward to future versions of CDRevolution!

Version 1.10

Oh, a couple more things...oh, I really shouldn't inundate you with this stuff BUT...

Another useful feature would be the ability to drag a .cue file along with a corresponding group of FLAC or APE files and burn a CD or create an archive based on the files. Does that make sense? I'm thinking of this as a tool to turn downloaded boots from Dimeadozen into CDs or archive files.


Oops. After playing with it for a while I see that it DOES default to saving the archive files in ~/Music. Nevermind! :)

Thanks for your feedback and support.

I'm hoping to add editable file metadata in version 1.20 and later (which, as a version 1 releases will be a free update to existing customers).

I'm not sure if it is possible to get the album artwork directly from the iTunes store (I'd have to do some research), but if not I could always download it from another service. (Incidentally there is a preference in iTunes that helps a lot regarding adding album covers when adding albums from CDRevolution: under the general tab there is the check-box preference "Automatically download missing album artwork".) I had pencilled in the idea of adding album covers to the archive files, but I'd neglected to consider Leopard's Coverflow feature. I think your right, I'll put this higher on the agenda.

Regarding the naming of archives; I was hoping to add a feature similar to iTunes where the image files are automatically organised into folders by artist. Would that be enough or would you still want to label each archive with "Artist - Album"?

The DVD backup idea is an excellent idea I hadn't considered. To retain fidelity CDRevolution image files are quite large - so you would only get about 10 or so albums per single sided DVD though. I'll add it to my list of things to do.

I'm going to have to do some more investigating before I get back to you on your .cue file suggestion.
