Sound recording for the simple


Good evening

I have a few CD's that I would like to take songs from and create my own CD's. I think the way to do this would be to play the cd in something like kscd and them record them with a sound recorder app. Could anyone enlighten me as to how to do this? Thanks.

use grip to rip your cds to the hard drive. should've came with your distro. then you can use a cd burning program to make custom cds. some cd burning programs are xcdroast, gnome toaster, k3b. you'll need the lame libraries for encoding and decoding mp3s. if you go with xcdroast, you'll need to learn how to decode mp3 files to wav files to make audio cds.

basically, "lame --decode filename.mp3 filename.wav".

actually if all you want to do is to is immediately burn a cd after ripping, you don't need to have grip encode an mp3 file, just store the ripped wav file to your hard drive and burn an audio cd from the wave files.

Hi megaspaz

Thanks for your response. The only problem is that the files on the cd are, or originally were .wma files. Will lame work with these? thanks

as far as i know, if the CD is playable in a normal CD player then lame should work just fine.

Hi everyone

Thanks all for the responses. Last month I moved from Fedora to Xandros and it looks like it's file manager handles it all. I am in the middle of seeing if it works now. Stay tuned.

Jim
