ripping cds to mp3 (or wav to mp3)


I tried some ripping programs but cdparanoia sucks cause it rips the music in pieces, like 2 secs - silence - 2 secs -silence and it says it can't get good quality (the face thingy.) I use a script now that rips to wav but I can't find a tool to convert wavs to mp3. What could I use for this or is there a better ripping program that doesn't use cdparanoia

Use grip, you can configure it to use cdparanoia or cdda2wav (or any other program) you want to rip audio cd's to wav files.
Same for the encoding part, you can configure it to use lame, oggenc, mp3encode or a number of other tools.
Hence oggenc to rip to ogg vorbis files which will produce a better result for the same amount of MB ...

You can configure grip not to use cdparanoia, if nothing else shows up you don't have it installed
An apt-get install cdda2wav should fix that.

I'm not saying you "should" use something else, I use cdparanoia myself but if you want to you can use something else.

Don't get me wrong either I'd like to use it and since I found ogg files are great I think I'll encode them to that but cdparanoia hasn't given me good results so far. Anyway I just found the copy protection of a cd kicked in so I can't get the final (and best) number so I have to play around with that too

Thanks for the help!

Not all CD-ROM/DVD-ROM drives are campable of doing digital audio extraction (DAE). Before doing DAE, make sure the disc is clean. If it is not, clean it by wiping perdicular or 90 degrees of the tracks. If you still have problems, use compress air and spray it in the CD-ROM/DVD-ROM drive (of course while the computer is turned off). I have no problems with cdparanoia with drives that are over 5 years old. I get better results with cdparanoia than using Windows programs.

For non-archival purposes, use ogg instead of mp3 because ogg files sounds more natural than mp3 even if you set mp3 to variable bit rate. If you are archiving your audio CD dics, I suggest flac or lossless audio compression.

BTW, try finding a 3rd-party firmware for your drive.

Found some advice on another site which said that it might work with no paranoia on. So I switched of all extra checks etc and it ripped a 10 minute song in under a minute, nearly perfect but some hickups so I guess I'll put some checks on so it goes a bit slower. Could be that the copy protection kicked in on this song cause cdda2wav couldn't get it either because of bad sectors.

It's for a playlist on my pc so I can listen all my CDs in shuffle mode And I'm surprised with ogg that's really great sound Thanks for the help!
