i normally rip music off using one method .. its kinda stupid but works

i have sb live and it have option of recording "what you hear" in sb updated drivers the setting is changed to "Master"

okay what i do is open my favourite sound editing program (sound forge in my case) and open a new file and start recording and than i play that "traget" file when it ends i stop the recording in sound forge, edit it a little and save as mp3

works like a charm although sound quality may not be THAT good buts pretty good :)

Music of nfs simply rocks i am thinking about ways to somehow rip it umm i doubt if this sound forge method will work but certainly i will try it out

You could do a search for these song:
Hot Action Cop - "Fever for the Flavor"
Hot Action Cop - "Going Down It"
Uncle Kracker - "Keep It Comin'"
Bush - "The People That We Love"
Rush - "One Little Victory"
Pulse Ultra - "Build Your Cages"
Course of Nature - "Wall of Shame"
Buzzhorn - "Ordinary"

I probably know a way to rip those songs, but I can't and won't tell you (It's kinda Illegal...don't bother PMing me bout it).

KILLorBE are the instrumental version of those songs also available?

I had this program on my HDD called Cool Edit Pro 2.0 ... and for once it had a good use :D

Sorry, I don't have the game.

And yes Cool Edit is a great program, You really should use it a lot more:)

At least you found a way of ripping those songs w/o using "illegal" software (didn't think of CE:eh?: people can be stupid when they're drunk:p , I had a different program in mind as you mentioned ASF)
