Ripping Blu-ray Audio

    Hi Kirk & fellow music heads,

    I’ve read these two Macworld articles by yourself and Christopher Breen:

    http://www.macworld.com/article/1161078/how_to_rip_audio_from_your_bluray_discs.html

    http://www.macworld.com/article/2154782/how-to-extract-audio-from-a-blu-ray-disc.html

    Between the two, here are the recommended apps:

    1. Make MKV - to effectively copy the entire contents of a Blu-ray disc to a Mac
    2. DVD Audio Extractor - to convert the individual audio tracks

    I’m wondering if you have found a newer workflow since you wrote your Macworld piece? It would certainly be more convenient to somehow be able to grab specific audio tracks directly from a Blu-ray disc. But I only have three discs I would like to rip, so if this is the only way to go, it’s no big deal. Thanks for any advice anyone might be able to provide!

    Thanks, Kirk! I was so fixed on the idea of ripping, iTunes-style, that I didn’t consider Audio Hijack even though I have heard of it.

    Indeed. It is a pretty easy tool for recording anything. And it records the actual digital stream, so it doesn't degrade quality at all (assuming you set it to record in lossless).
