Hey I have been looking for a program in the software centre that will convert music files with videos into pure audio files. I have found 3 programs and heard of a 4th: Sound Converter, WinFF, Arista and the 4th is Gnormalise. I cannot figure out the differences between these though, although I did see that Gnormalise has the ability to adjust the volume recorded on a file it was not in the software centre.

So my question is what are the differences and can anyone make recommendations?
Also why isn't Gnormalise in Ubuntu's software centre?

WinFF does this with ease.

soundkonverter with a k is the most versatile in your synaptic and also shntool (command line) is a must

tips to use it are

to install



sudo apt-get install shntool

Shntool functions as a frontend of sorts for lossless audio software (mac, flac, wavpack). It performs a range of functions including facilitating the conversion of music files between the various lossless formats (ape, flac, wv, wav, etc). Note that shntool has native support for .wav files only; if you want it to work with .ape, .flac or .wv files then you must have the appropriate helper programs (mac, flac, wavpack respectively) installed. For a full list of the lossless formats supported by shntool type “shntool -f”. To convert all .ape files in a directory to flac using shntool:


shntool conv -o flac *.ape

This command can also be given as:


shnconv -o flac *.ape





from the command-line also ffmpeg for video to audio

Ok I tried Sound Converter and it often shutdown when it was performing an operation or just after it had finished one and it wasn't supposed to. So now I am trying WinFF

Hi shantiq,


shntool (command line) is a must...

I am relatively new to shntool but I have been using it over the last little while to join together a small library of flac files I have. A great tool well worth exploring :).

Hi. I got a bunch of MP3's that I want to burn to a disk, for my simple in-dash, factory equipment car stereo. what is the easiest and simplest way to convert MP3 to CDR using Ubuntu?

Brasero, the default CD burner works fine.

Just start off the project by clicking on "create and audio CD"

Let me know if you have any problems.
