Program for Audio Production, Editing, Ripping, etc.

Is there a program that let's you do the following:

- Rip audio CD's and import mp3's.
- Edit them.
- Convert File formats.
- Capable of storing 30,000+ files.
- Make play-lists easily.
- Configure it a lot.
- Be sheduled to record at specific times.

The reason I ask is because I work at a radio station that uses win2k and I want to convince them to switch to linux which is impossible if their is no program that can do this.

I use amaroK for handling playlists. It can also rip files into ogg, or mp3 although to be honest I tend to use KaudioCreator for that.

amaroK uses either SQLite, MySQL or PostgreSQL as a backend, and can easily cope with a huge amount of songs. It just may take a little time to run over your collection first.

Has some handy features like pulling album covers from amazon, can get the lyrics of songs, and even has the ability to get info on the band thats playing through Wikipedia. Also it can set up lists and send them to K3b to burn a CD.

Massilvly configurable, and can use whichever backend Audio gives yoy the best results for playback, I use it with Gstreamer since it tends to sound better on my system.
