Rip your Audio CD to Opus using my latest opusenc.exe build with Exact Audio Copy

Hi everyone, Today, I’d like to show you the steps to rip your Audio CD to Opus using Exact Audio Copy and my latest opusenc.exe build. Why use my opusenc.exe build?

Second, it is not needed to specify the output filename, as it will use the same input name. For Exact Audio Copy, this means that you only need…
