K3b is a CD and DVD burning application for Linux systems optimized for KDE. It provides a comfortable user interface to perform most CD/DVD burning tasks, such as creating an audio CD from a set of audio files or copying a CD. While the experienced user can influence all steps of the burning process, the beginner may find comfort in the automatic settings and the reasonable defaults which allow a quick start. The actual burning is done by the command line utilities cdrecord, cdrdao, and growisofs.
GrypPhon focuses on adding new features to the old concept of a CD player, while maintaining extreme configurability. It is written purely in Python and contains a Linux CD-ROM audio library for Python containing all normal CD-playing features, plus volume control and skipping/searching.
KAudioCreator is an audio file creation solution for KDE. Ripping the files using KDE (with CDDB support), it allows you to use whatever encoder you wish to encode your audio files. It also provides a job control system so you can see what files have succeeded or failed, and stop or cancel jobs as the application progresses.
Music Manager is a Konqueror plugin that lets you standardize the filenames of your music files, guess information and set ID3 tags from the file's name (this can be done to several files in one shot), rename many selected files based on their ID3 tags, set ID3 tags in mass for selected files with options for copying ID3s from other files and leaving some ID3 fields untouched, rename _ to space and vice versa, create HTML and text indexes of your collections (including total playing time, etc., configurable through templates), create nice CD covers with full listings of your music files (also configurable through templates), and organize your music collection to create a CD.
