what is the most comfortable encoder for creating mp3-s, preferably with gui?

i mean standalone encoder, not bundled with ripper.

mp3c is a front-end for lame and other encoders, but still doesn't have a beautiful gui...

mp3c would be ok, if it HAD a chance to create mp3-s WITHOUT ripping...

isn't there really any gui software for this task?

kAudioCreator but I don't like it that much.
Grip works really nicely. You need ghttp and lame which you should be able to find from wherever you find Grip.

Seconded. Grip is about as easy as you can get.

Hmmm. By the looks of it, grip can only rip, or rip and encode, but not encode only. Apologies; I assumed you were ripping tunes and encoding them.

To encode a sound file to mp3 you could always use Audacity (sample editor) as your gui. A bit extravagant, but it's obvious enough how to do it: load the sound file, choose "Export as MP3" from the File menu.

Hi

you could try Bladenc which is a stand alone encoder

I use cli , never bothered with the front end
Go into directory with ripped tracks and enter Bladenc *.* and all tracks are ripped
cheers
