I’m looking for a CD ripper that would be using the LAME encoder and would recognize cyrillic characters - recognize as in read cddb or freedb coherently and be able to give the ripped wav (and vbr mp3) a readable name in Russian. I’m using CD-ex and happy with it, but when it comes to Russian records, it is helpless. The only ripper that understands Russian reasonably that I have met so far is WMP 10, but as far as I know it uses the Fraunhofer encoder and it doesn’t allow vbr mp3 encoding anyway.
I know there must be programs out there that can do what I need, but I just haven’t been able to find them. Perhaps somebody has?
thanks in advance
(PS when Russian has been cleared, I’ll be back with the same question regarding Chinese, Japanese etc.)
