What Linux program is available to pull cd music off a cd and make it into a mp3?


I would like to pull songs off cd`s and put them on my Hard drive as mp3`s. I am sure this is very common practice. I have searched around and all I have found is grip but that is for gnome, anyone know if it works in KDE? or know of any other program? Thanks.

kaudiocreator is a front end for CD ripping and encoding.

grip will work if you have gtk installed and its dependencies, which by default almost all distro's will install, even if you don't install gnome.

maybe use mplayer? (it comes with mencoder, i suspect you can control what track it tacks .. the output is a movie file, but the mp3 stream can be easily extracted) .. read "man mencoder"

the other option is transcode (its hard to use (partly because its split into lots of little programs, but the main program "transcode" is a wrapper for the rest) ... just be sure, you have to tell it everything (everything, as in this programs doesn't like to guess, and its bad at guessing also) .. read "transcode --help" (does this program come with a man page?)

both are commandline based ... there are GUI wrappers for transcode ... i think at least 2 (tho i think they are GTK .. not sure if a qt one exists) ....... as for mplayer, i don't know if theres a GUI for mencoder, but LIVES (is uses GTK) does use mplayer for everything ... i think one of those GUI wrappers should work if you cant use the command-line

and just because a application is GTK, doesn't make it gnome .... (and a good thing to ... i personally hate gnome, but love GTK) ... use the gtk theme GTK-qt ... it tells qt (KDE's toolkit) to draw the widgets, and basically translates GTK apps into qt apps

edit: dang in a slow typer ...

Cool, Thanks for the replies.
I am rebuilding my music system and want to have all the music on the Hard Drive instead of playing the cd`s through xmms. The computer with the amp and speakers from my stereo sounds better than the stereo alone. I have come to the conclusion that playing from the computer is so much better sounding and easier to adjust things, that stereos are pretty much obsolete.
Oh, by the way, I am drunk.

you just want to rip ya cds?

just type

cdparanoia -w -B -d /dev/cdrom 1-

this command pulls all tracks on ya device, but in wav format. u just have to encode them in mp3, e.g. lame track01.wav interprete - title.mp3

That's essentially what KAudioCreator does - except that KAudioCreator adds the extra tag information to the MP3 file, such as the artist name, album title, song title, year and genre. I've run into some old CD's that KAudioCreator isn't able to parse; in which case I've run cdparanoia and lame manually. I usually see a good reason for using a front-end like KAudioCreator, though.

mh i dont trust these gui's i better say: why using frontends when u can do it by urself ;>
but u are right, its very easy and comfortable using that kaudiocreator, specially for creating tags.
but im wondering where kaudiocreator get these information to put em into tags? when u read out an audio cd, u just got wave files without information or im wrong?!

there should be extra info on the cd, how else do cd players know the artist and track name of songs?

also, for a quick complete, and dirty cd rip:

cp /dev/hdc /home/yourdocs/music-rips/cd1.img

but that should only be used if you don't have one of the other programs (everyone has "cp" or "dd" or even "mv" and "cat")

It obtains the information using CDDB.

Yeah, good ripper GUIs are

grip
kaudiocreator
ripperX

I prefer to rip to ogg, though.
There are internet servers for CDDB who will answer queries about what artist/title you are encoding.
So these CDDB lookups will only work if you're connected to the internet (unless you download the CDDB database to your hdd).
Some applications will also keep the info for CDs they've played before (and checked with CDDB) somewhere on your hard drive.

Cheers
