Your preferred CD ripping app?

Postby JoeFootball » Thu Feb 04, 2010 6:22 pm

Here in the Linux Mint 8 era, what's everyone's preferred app for ripping CDs?

I'm ideally looking for one that can at least create VBR 320 kbps MP3s, with bonus points for FLAC and Ogg Vorbis options. GUI would be nice to have, but CLI is acceptable.

Thanks!

Joe

I use sound juicer, mostly because it was available from Synaptic when I went looking for a CD ripper. It has a simple, easy to use GUI. And, if your internet connection is active, it will query Musicbrainz for track lists on CDs you are ripping; thus relieving you of the tedium of typing in all titles on a CD.

It also supports these output formats (select via Edit=>Preferences):

1. CD quality
a. AAC(.m4a type)
b. lossless(.flac type)
c. lossy (.ogg type)
d. MP2
e. MP3

2. Voice quality
a.lossless(.wav type)
b. lossy (.spx type)

Sound Juicer.

Used to Grip but AFAIK it has stopped development.

A user on another forum I frequent has written up a how-to, there's a link to a .pdf in this post: http://forum.micromart.co.uk/FindPost387177.aspx

I prefer RubyRipper it is slow compared to some of the others but in my opion it does a better job.
Add to your source list to use apt-get to install

Code: Select all

I prefer RubyRipper

+1

I find it to be at least as accurate as Exact Audio Copy,
which was my application of choice when I used Windows.
I can run EAC in Wine but I prefer RubyRipper.

Ripperx is another good option - here's the blurb from the sourceforge website-

"RipperX is a GTK program to rip CD audio tracks and encode them to the Ogg, MP3, or FLAC formats. It's goal is to be easy to use, requiring only a few mouse clicks to convert an entire album. It supports CDDB lookups for album and track information"

I tried Asunder and RipperX. CDDB doesn't seem to find some of my CDs.

Sound Juicer looks good, but (since an update?) the "Edit Profiles" button is gone and I cannot set OGG to e.g. quality 10 (500kb/s). It defaults to 112kb/s which is too low for me. Does anybody know how to reenable the "Edit Profiles" button to set the encode settings? This problem seems to exist since 4 years, from the reviews in the Software Manager. I want a GUI, not working manually with ffmpeg or else. I'm rather noobish, but can work well with instructions and directions.

If this exceeds the scope of this topic, or is considered necroposting, an administrator please split this off into a new topic and forgive me.

Thanks in advance, I'd really love to archive my CDs on my HDD, and kind of miss Winamp now,
Johannes

Hi "JoeFootball" & "Schemel",

Wow, old post that has been resurrected...

I just read your post and the good replies to it. Here are my thoughts on this as well.

There are other newer posts regarding this topic. I think it would benefit you to read them.

These two posts below have screenshots and explanations on various programs and methods for easily doing this.

[SOLVED] App to extract audio and save as wav file
https://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.php?f=47&t=219068&hilit=soundkonverter


The awesome "K3b" DVD/CD application can do this. "SoundKonverter" is also wonderful. And, there are numerous music applications, that can also easily do this, and my favorite is the incredible "Amarok" music manager player.

Hope this helps ...

FYI:
If you are not using Linux Mint KDE, and want to be able to run some very high quality KDE applications,
then install these few programs below in the quote box in blue, which are perfectly safe for any edition of Linux mint.
If you're experiencing issues with KDE apps (like Okular, Gwenview, KStars, kdenlive, "K3b", etc...)
run the following command from your console terminal prompt: (you can copy & paste it too)
sudo apt-get install kdelibs-bin kdelibs5-data kdelibs5-plugins

Depending on your setup, you might also need to install "KDE-runtime" as well.


Hope this helps ...

You and me both, brother.

If there is one thing great about Windows, it's Winamp and Minilyrics. I know there is a Winamp for Android, which is Linux. I can't believe it would be much more difficult to go the rest of the way and make an Ubuntu package. I'm not holding my breath but I can dream...

Hi "TooMuchTime", "Schemel", etc...

You can install "Audacious3" which can use Winamp skins and has 3 different options, including one that looks like WinAmp and plays like WinAmp. Read my links in my previous reply. I do not know if it can rip CD's, perhaps with a plug-in, but it works really well as a Linux music player with lyrics as well.

The other CD ripping options I mentioned for ripping CD's work extremely well and are super easy to use. The incredible "Amarok" music manager player can easily rip CD's into many audio formats, with user defined bitrates, etc..., and has scrolling lyrics, auto-retrieves the metadata, and so much more...


Hope this helps ...

Hi "TooMuchTime", "Schemel", etc...

FYI-2: Regarding Winamp

"Qmmp" is an audio player that looks like and plays like Winamp and can use Winamp or "XMMS" skins. Has various plugins and options. Easy to install and use.
QMMP – A winamp style music player for Linux

Links to some WinAMP skins that anyone can use.

http://qmmp.ylsoftware.com/files/skins/winamp-skins/


"XMMS" (with "Promoe" GUI Client) is another Music application (client & Server) that can use Winamp skins, and has many plug-ins and options as well. "Qmmp" is easier to install, and does not require server daemon running.

Both of these are in the Synaptic Package Manager.

phd21 wrote:I still have not found any music application that is as complete, and that can do everything that "Amarok" can, but Amarok cannot use Winamp skins (I don't think).

To easily rip a CD, you just have to right click the CD on the left, and select "Copy to Collection", and select "Local collection", or any other attached device, like a USB flash drive stick or usb connected phone, etc... you will be asked what music audio file format that you want (mp3, ogg, flac, wav), click the "advanced" button to choose various file type options, like mp3 at 320kbs.
