Hi all,
I am beginning to rip my CD's and since I am a novice I have some questions for the experts. I note that most (if not all) of the torrents include a rip log. I downloaded dbPoweramp and converted a couple of discs to flac format at the highest compression level. However, I have not found an option to create a log. Is there a better application for converting CD audio to flac? I also have a USB turntable so I can begin converting my album collection. Any direction or suggestions would be welcome.
James

It is recommended to use EAC to extract the audio. For flac conversion, TLH or flac Frontend are most commonly used, although dBpoweramp will do it too.

if you follow the Install, Setup, and Ripping guides at that link, you'll have a perfect copy of the audio that's on the cd. just don't skip any steps, and you'll have a .log, .cue, and flac fileset.
