I'm ripping a bunch of audio books. Some of them have 20-30 tracks of a couple of minutes each, and are on 15 CDs. What I'd like to do is rip each CD to one big track, so I end up with 15 tracks of an hour or so each.

I can't find an option in iTunes to do this. Anyone know of an OS X ripper that can do this, or do I have to rip seperately and then join all the tracks.

TIA

I have used Audio Hijack Pro to do this. You just set iTunes as the "source" application, press play in iTunes and AHP starts recording it. When the whole CD is done AHP automatically stops the recording.

Select the tracks you want to join and then select "Join CD Tracks" from the Advanced menu in iTunes. I think that's what you're looking for.

I've used Audio Hijack Pro to record radio shows and it works well, but in real time. I was hoping there's a way to do the job at ripping speed.

Thanks anyhoo

Aha! That looks promising. I'm going to try that later - thanks a lot.

Edit: Works perfectly, thanks a bunch :)
