Just got a new truck; it has a USB port to play .mp3 from a USB stick.
I have dozens of music CDs (commercial and home made); I want to convert them to .mp3.

What would be a good and fast ripper/encoder ???

I did a search, but the results I found were 3-4 years old.

Thanks !

I like ripperx, it is in the repository so can be installed easily through Synaptic Package Manager or Ubuntu Software Centre.


RipperX is a GTK program to rip CD audio tracks and encode them to the Ogg, MP3, or FLAC formats. It's goal is to be easy to use, requiring only a few mouse clicks to convert an entire album. It supports CDDB lookups for album and track information...

In Gnome ripperx, in KDE soundkonvertor.

For simple batch conversion from cd wav/aiff to mp3 or other, I use: soundconverter which is Gnome. soundkonverter is similar but KDE. Both are in repos - however those just convert any audio to any audio in mass. Sound Juicer available as sound-juicer does both extraction from disk at the same time as encoding.

Perhaps have a look at the console ripper abcde one day, I am a big fan and wrote a guide to illustrate the usage:

I use this too. Another vote for abcde and Andrew's guide.
