Windows 10: CD ripper with text editor wanted

    CD ripper with text editor wanted

    This may not be Windows specific, however I'm hoping someone might be able to help anyway. I'm looking for a CD ripping program that provides a way to edit the song titles for such things as having every word in the title begin with a capital letter.
    I have many CDs (hundreds) that are not in any database such as FreeDB, MusicBrainz, CDDB or anywhere else on the net. That means I have to enter song titles manually. It would be great if there was a setting to bring up and change the way those titles appear so the data entry can be done in lower case, then have them all changed to begin with caps.
    There was a program, EZ CD Extractor, which worked that way in earlier versions, but they removed that feature when it was updated a few years ago. Those old versions which have that feature won't run satisfactorily on Windows 10. Frankly the program was never that stable on Win 7 anyway.
    I buy a lot of CDs that have just been released so no one has entered them into Freedb yet. Then there's homemade CDs that I've traded with people who just put random tracks together on a CD.
    I also find a lot of Freedb matches in formats I don't like, such as all words except for prepositions in capital letters. I prefer all words in a title to be in caps so I have to manually edit those too. It seems like text editing would be a simple addition to a ripping program but I guess there hasn't been enough demand for it.
    I've taken a look at Exact Audio Copy, fre:ac, dbpoweramp, Express Rip from NCH and some others. None of them have automatic text editing of song titles. You have to do everything to do with titles manually. I would gladly pay for a program that does have that feature if anyone can suggest one.

    If all you want to do is is rename them all caps you could convert them with a simple powershell script

    $files = Get-ChildItem -Path
    "C:\RootFolder"-Recurse -File
    foreach ($file in $files) { Rename-Item -Path $file.FullName -NewName $file.FullName.ToUpper() }

    Hi there
    Good CD ripper - if you can still find it was the old WINAMP -- also it connects to Gracenote --excellent for classical music too..

    Once you've ripped the tracks it's easy to tag tracks not on gracenote with something like mp3tag (tags flac etc too). It's Freeware as well.

    Mp3tag - the universal Tag Editor (ID3v2, MP4, OGG, FLAC, ...)

    You can add a load of other data too to the tracks, import and export to EXCEL, create databases etc etc. Excellent program.

    Here's a simple rip of a CD done with Winamp.
