View Full Version : [ubuntu] MP3 Ripper and WAV Converter

January 18th, 2009, 02:12 AM
There a good MP3 Ripper and wave converter in ubutnu? Like LAME or something but maybe with a gui

What I really need it to do is be able to rip an entire music CD of multiple tracks into a single track.

K3b can do it:

>Tools>Rip Audio CD>[select all]>Start Ripping>Options: 'Create single file'

Or abcde (CLI only):

sudo apt-get install abcde

abcde -1 -o mp3

Or again from the terminal:

sudo apt-get install libcdio-utils

cd-paranoia "1-" -- | lame -V 2 - album.mp3

The above will rip entire CD from track 1 to end and pipe it to lame to encode into a single file 'album.mp3' @ VBR quality 2 (~192 kbps)

for all the above you'll need the lame pkg/plugins of course
