View Full Version : [ubuntu] [SOLVED] Help with cd ripping

August 1st, 2008, 06:05 PM
i have alot of cd's i would like to rip and would prefer a gui based app for this. i have tried asunder and grip. both were a no-go. k3b worked, but only gave me 128kb a sec.(i want 320 a sec) how can i change k3b's settings to give me 320kb or can someone recommend another app for this? thanks for any help.

As i mentioned in your other thread Rubyripper (both a cli and gui ripper).
Otherwise if your ripper of choice will allow inserting parameters, ck. here

CBR (constant bitrate, the default) options:
-b <bitrate> set the bitrate in kbps, default 128 kbps
--cbr enforce use of constant bitrate

ABR options:
--abr <bitrate> specify average bitrate desired (instead of quality)

VBR options:
-v use variable bitrate (VBR) (--vbr-old)
--vbr-old use old variable bitrate (VBR) routine
--vbr-new use new variable bitrate (VBR) routine
-V n quality setting for VBR. default n=4
0=high quality,bigger files. 9=smaller files
-b <bitrate> specify minimum allowed bitrate, default 32 kbps
-B <bitrate> specify maximum allowed bitrate, default 320 kbps
