Maybe it's because I'm an audio guy or maybe I'm not understanding the situation totally but what's the problem? If you're just trying to get the cd audio into wav or aif, there are tons of CD rippers out there to digitally rip CD tracks into wma, wav, aif, etc. Fees are usually minimal. Personally, I use audio catalyst for digitally ripping tracks to mp3 or wav. If I'm grabbing samples for writing music, I just record/edit into sound forge. I can output my file to whatever I want.
