audio cd ripping


Hello,
I hope this isn't too off-topic.

A friend brought back some audio CDs from Mexico and asked me to convert them to MP3s. I did a (very) little looking around and it seemed VLC was the right app to use so I installed it. The problem I'm having is that it wants an output file and then puts the entire CD, 22 tracks, in that one file. Moreover, and this might be the more serious issue, that MP3 is not playable.

So obviously I'm doing something wrong. Can anyone walk me through ripping an audio CD to MP3 with VLC or any other app?

RipperX works well. Abcde also works well, but is CLI and requires a little set up.

My 2 cents

Find out how many tracts are on the CD.

For tract 1
Code:
mplayer cdda://1 -ao pcm:file=file1.wav

ffmpeg -i file1.wav -vn -c:a libmp3lame -b:a 128k file1.mp3
If ffmpeg is compiled with cdio
Code:
ffmpeg -f libcdio -i /dev/sr0 file.wav
cdparanoia works fine too.

You could script that to do all of the work.
Code:
for i in {1..22}; do
    mplayer cdda://"$i" -ao pcm:file=file"$i".wav
done

i realize more work but you could always use a music editing/production app to edit the tracks out as separate tracks and work from there too.

I just use whichever ripper is in the DE -- seem to recall cdparanoia is available to select for most of them?

For those who use KDE Plasma, you can insert a CD and open the files in Dolphin. Dolphin shows the music files and also an "Ogg Vorbis" directory and a "MP3" directory. You can go into the "MP3" directory and simply copy the .mp3 files right from there. I've been using this approach lately in Kubuntu 19.10, except I go for the .ogg files.
