Recommendations for CD->WAV (stereo)->MP3 Linux Ripper?


Hi all,
I've been trying various rippers in Linux but haven't found one that can rip a CD to WAV as stereo, convert WAV to MP3, and use CDDB to learn about the metadata. Sound Juicer and Grip seem to be in the running, but they do OGG and don't seem to know much of anything about my CDs' artist/title/tracks. Do I need to install more codecs to get them to rip to WAV as stereo, or am I missing a config somewhere? The only WAV option I found uses 1 channel (mono) not 2 (stereo). I use Gnome (Ubuntu) but I've got no problem running KDE apps. Thanks for any tips.

When I have used Grip or the KDE equivalent they have been able to rip my CDs to MP3s with no problems. They also put the CDDB data on there as well.

Is there a particular reason you need to go CD > WAV > MP3? Seems like an unnecessary extra step to me.

I want to have a library of lossless formats (thus no MP3) recognized across many platforms (thus no OGG). Going straight to MP3 I can do, as it seems to be a standard across most apps, but getting stereo lossless seems to be my problem.

You should be able to get your .wav and .mp3 files from grip in one step.

In grip, click on the Config tab. Then click on Rip to setup the rip (rip as .wav). Then click on the Encode tab and setup the encode to mp3. In the Options tab of Encode, uncheck the option to delete the .wav after encoding. That should give you both the .wav and .mp3, all in one operation.

I want to convert from CD to mp3 on KDE, so I can't use Grip.

I think it's KAudioCreator - I couldn't remember the name at the time, that's why I called it the KDE equivalent
