Description of Pillage 2.0

BSEditor: Most people that use Mac OS X rip their CDs using iTunes. Most people are happy doing that. If you have perfect CDs and flawless CD/DVD drives in your computer, and iTunes is set to use error correction, you are golden - right? Wrong.

Our friends using the Linux operating system have an excellent programs for ripping proper, secure (read: glitch/error/pop free) sound files from their CDs: CDParanoia. While not the prettiest program in the world (the application runs via a shell, with no real graphical user interface [gui]), it does the job...and very well.

Windows users also have great applications for secure ripping: EAC and CDex (which uses the CDParanoia program). Doesn't really help us Mac users, though.

While there is currently one application on OS X that uses CDParanoia, I wanted something simplier. Enter Tobias Sargeant, who ported the Linux version of CDParanoia to OS X, and Stefan Schüßler, who wrote an installer for Mr Sargeant's OS X port. These two men, putting hard work into getting CDParanoia ported onto OS X, made it possible for me to Create Pillage.

As a DJ who uses ScratchLive when I spin, I need all of my music on my hard drive. Unlike some of my fellow DJ's, I Go for quality in my files. Instead of mp3 files, I only spin AIFF files (can't Put iTunes Tags in a WAV file). When I ripped a CD, I always used iTunes error correction. I thought this was fine, until I started playing back some of the rips I did using the Stock drives in my Macs. Glitch. Pop. Error. This would not be good while spinning at a club. I had ripped over 400 gig before I became too frustrated with bad rips, and looked into a better solution. Little did I know that I would have to write a program myself!

Essentially, the purpose of Pillage is to be the be-all, end-all solution for CD ripping. I wrote Pillage originally just to rip my entire CD library. For DJ'ing, as well as for production use, I wanted to have my entire CD library immediately accessible.
