i do not want to have to try each one in the repos to find a good one. the default sound juicer will only rip to 256k (mp3) i believe. i'm looking for a ripper that will give me 320k. thanks.

Asunder will do that. In the repos.

asunder is not in the repos. and yes, i have all repos enabled, plus medibuntu. i found it at getdeb.net. but it will only rip to 245k.

My wrong - no it's not. I'm running 1.6 and that goes to 320k

I use Grip (in universe) with lame (multiverse) as an encoding backend. Lame will do 320kbit.

What version of lame is it pulling AFAIK, this is the backend

I actually prefer the a full blown CD/DVD suite when dealing with my discs. So I use K3B, which is in the repo's. I am quite sure it can rip at 320 and higher.

ok, i've ripped a cd with k3b. how can i check the bit rate of the mp3's?

edit: i found out how to get the bit rate. i'm going to close this thread as solved and start another one with a more appropriate title. thanks.

if you want a very sophisticated and configurable ripper I'd use Rubyripper.
For gutsy the getdeb is good, for hardy I'd build from source. If you build, a run thru ./configure will show what packages are missing in terms of functions and capabilities.
It will accept any valid parameters for the codec being used, a read thru <codec> --help or --longhelp is informative (ex. lame --longhelp).
A basic lame setting would be -V n (vbr, n=quality, 0=highest, 9=lowest)

After getting packages in order i configured as such

./configure --enable-lang-all --enable-gtk2 --enable-cli --prefix=/usr


Note: in hardy you must change the cdrom device in Rubyripper's preferences from a /dev link to a /dev device Ie. /dev/scd0 or dev/scd1 ect.


how can i check the bit rate of the mp3's
r. click on mp3 -> properties -> audio , vbr will report as lowest used i believe (or average)
