I wanted to rip a song from an audio-CD to use as reference listening when mixing. A quick search in the repo and I found this little program called Audio CD Extractor (Sound Juicer). First I fired it off, just to notice the default output was ogg. Second I spent some time figuring out the options and found one predefined profile for wav. This time the output was 22050hz mono. Since I waned better sound quality I had to make a modification of the options as listed below.
Change output format by adding a new profile.
Name it CD Rip and add this properties.
Gstreamer pipline: audio/x-raw-int,rate=44100,channels=2 ! wavenc name=enc
File extension: wav
Close and reopen the extractor and chose CD Rip as output.
