    I've found a way to rip my records to my computer (just want to have them on my iPod, for driving) and I've found I can do this with garageband, but it's in m4a and the quality is rather low. I'm just wonder if there are any other free programs out there that will let me rip them as 192 mp3's without transcoding?

    Sound Studio gets my vote. Will record to .aif or .wav for you to drop into iTunes. And, if you get the free LAME plugin, it will convert to MP3 for you.

    Audacity does a similar job for free, I believe, but I like sound studio.

    I am sure there are others too.

    I believe there is a way to export out of Garageband in AIFF, so no compression and no loss. Still, I prefer Audacity, I find more intuitive.

    Freeze your tracks. Then ctrl-click on the GarageBand file and do a Show Package Contents. Your recordings are there in .aif format. Except, I think you may subsequently need to trim them in Audacity or Sound Studio anyway.
