Must say, so impressed with Lucid 10.04!

Started with a clean install, with new GeForce 6200 video card installed. Very impressed that when I tried to activate compiz, it informed me that I must download and install the relevant drivers - and it provided me with a 'one click' install! Now I'm running the latest driver (195) - well done guys!

Anyway, happy as I am with a no-fuss install, I'd like to know what is everyones pick of CD ripper to MP3?

I've downloaded Asunder, but this seems very slow in comparison to other Windows-based apps I've tried.

I wanted to try Sound Juicer, but unfortunately it requires some code to change from VBR to CBR @ 320kbps. So if anyone can help there... ;-)

All in all, the best Ubuntu release yet! Well done to all involved!

+1 to rubyripper. Not the fastest ripper around, but nice and accurate.

BTW, I dont use it to rip to MP3, just to flac..if I want an MP3 file I use soundconveter/soundkonverter to transcode flac-> MP3.

Got it, thanks. How do you ensure it will rip to 320kbps using CBR though?

Cheers.

No, don't think we've met. Don't recognise your name, sorry.

Are you from NZ's best kept secret, or somewhere else?

Go to 'preferences-> codec (tab)-> LAME MP3' then use the setting '-b 320' (no quotes).

Decided on Sound Juicer. Thanks Robert.

Thought I'd post a screendump of my new Ubuntu desktop.

Took less than 2 hours from a clean install to get this where I wanted it. Was really impressed with how it worked 'out of the box' for my new graphics card! Awesome.

Canonical - you guys rock!

Not saying anything bad about soundjuicer (it works, and it uses CDparanoia the same as rubyripper does) but there is 1 reason why rubyripper is superiour IMO- it doesnt just make a single rip. It does 2 rips, and then compares every chunk to make sure that there are no errors.

Its like a 'test and copy' rip from EAC (which I rate aas by far the best windows ripper...and probably the best ripper on any OS).

Mind you, that does make it slower. If you doing a high quality rip (like lossess, MP3 V0/256/320K, or ogg vorbis Q8/Q9), that slowness is worth it in my book ;)
