Ripping MP3s


How do you go about ripping MP3s with Linux, I tried ripping, but the closest I could get was ripping into a wav file, which is okay, but it is huge!
Do you I need to download something to enable this function?

ive got one word for you: lame.. no not the adjective, the program.. (; For eg kaudiocreator utilizes lame to rip mp3:s from a CD.. very easy to use.. There are other progs like grip, but they all use lame for mp3 encoding

kaudiocreator is distributed with KDE, so if you have it, you most likely have kaudiocreator allready.. There are numerous threads here about finding and installing software, so the search function is your best friend incase you dont allready have it.. (:

Lame is distrivuted with most distributions, but for eg Fedora Core imho doesnt.. (patent issues) .. So, a google on "lame linux" might prove useful incase you dont allready have it..

Yeah I have Kaudiocreator with my distro, I used it to rip into wav and it seemed to work great, I did a search on lame but I wasnt exactly sure what was the right place to get it, is it open source software?

yeah, it is..

If you cant see it in the kaudiocreator encoder selection in the preferences, youre missing it.. Im sure yast can help you with that, doesnt it have a internet package fetcher? My gf used to have suse before I converted her to slackware, so im only speaking from vague memories..

Heres a quick google I came up with:

use grip...it has lame in the pakage
You can rip with cdda2wav or cdparanoia(what I use) then encode with built in lame or install your own,I use lame-ha from hydrogen audio,the lame experts
Useing debian Im able to just add www.rarewares.org addy into apt sources.list and I have a few different options via lame and other neat rarewares stuff.
In grip you can also add the lame syntax of your choice includeing the "alt-preset" presets.

Does anybody know about any console-mp3-encoder that comes with Slackware?

If you haven't considered.. you could consider ripping your music in .ogg format instead of the patented mp3.

linux grip lame

I have a program on my desktop called Grip, meaning Gnu-Rip, I suppose. Rip means "copy an audio track from the cd to a file on the hard disk." Lame is the mp3 encoder. Without it, Grip creates a wave file, a .wav, which has the same size as the audio track, like 35MB for a 3 minute song. So far so good. I was surprised I got this far. To repeat: ripping a track means copy it from the audio cd to a file. Why would you want to do this? The Audio CD has a structure all its own. Tracks are not files: you cannot drag and drop a track to your desktop. Lame is an encoder (a filter, in Unix parlance) which compresses the .wav, producing an .mp3 which is 10 times smaller. Only problem is that my Grip won't let me use the Lame encoder. It complains there is some kind of configuration error, maybe the command line which invokes lame is wrong, maybe ... maybe it's simply broken, maybe it doesn't come with the distro. I'm using SuSE 9.2, but Grip won't compress with Fedora Core 3 either, which I have installed on another partition. What's the deal?

well thanks for the deep analysis of ripping.. d:

Well, howabaout to get the track on your comp instead of just the CD? Thats enough reason imho..

Quote:

Well, in a way you are right, its true that they arnt real files but tracks.. But for eg. MS windows and Konqueror audiocd:// simulate the CD as a normal filesystem allowing "drag&drop", and konqueror can even "rip" and "encode" on the fly via this drag&drop..

Now, after the analysis, your actual question.. If you suspect your config, then why not attempt changing it? Or if thats too much a task for you, perhaps tell us what your config is like? If you dont like grip but have allready gotten the wav:s out, you can allways use lame by hand.. In that task, I warmly suggest:
Code:
man lame
