Why folks go to so much trouble when it's obvious they can't come close to the standard that XLD is, well, it is beyond my comprehension. No log, for Mac OS X doesn't even use CD Paranoia, butt-ugly, no simultaneous multiple encode ability, etc. I can not find one thing exceptional.

I can not adjust the bitrate of MP3 tracks of a CD in ripping process - I can always be sure there was a way to choose higher bitrates - I am only stucked at 128 EVEN if I slide a buttom at config that seems to show 260 (I would like to go to 320) - Could you helpe with this? Thanks in advance if so.

Trying to launch this it says it requires X11? I don't see that listed in the requirements. It should be added. I'm not reviewing this because I'm not really interested due to the X11 requirement. There are other apps that do the same thing and are stand alone.

Mac Osx 4ever- first places to look imho would be XLD with 2nd place going to MediaHuman Audio Converter. XLD has a bit of a learning curve but is well worth the effort. Am using that for all ripping and converting now.
