View Full Version : [ubuntu] Ripping CDs to AAC in Ubuntu
August 30th, 2011, 01:32 AM
I'd like to be able to rip CDs to AAC files in Ubuntu, but I'm having some difficulty. Banshee will not rip to AAC at all. Sound Juicer will, but I have some problems with it. Firstly, there doesn't seem to be a way to control the bitrate at which it encodes the AAC files. It apparently rips them at 128kbps automatically, although I'd like them to be 256kbps. Secondly, when I open these files in Banshee, a lot of the metadata is missing, such as the artist name.
Any thoughts as to how I may be able to solve any or all of these problems?
By the way, I'm using Ubuntu 11.04.

Try it using K3B. I haven't used Banshee and Sound Juice to rip CDs but K3B, I believe, can do it for you.

Try it using K3B.
Yes, K3b and RubyRipper will both rip CDs to aac using neroAacEnc encoder and neroAacTag tagger.
But they don't do it straight out of the box, needs some extra work.:cool:

Cool. Can you point me in the direction of a guide on how to do that in Ubuntu? I found some, but they appear to be for other versions of Linux.

abcde should be able to do this, a sample ~/.abcde.conf here:
