The first page of the help files says Mixpad also has ripping functionality, but I don't see it. Still reading, but would appreciate any ideas. I was hoping any ripping in mixpad could be combined with editing to produce special ripping techiniques needed for classical music cd problems. As far as the Toolbox goes, I was hoping to see if there's any help there, but it just stalls on me when downloading, or if I download and install independently, it does activate in the programs. Thanks.
