Adam's Ripsuite is a collection of quick and dirty Perl and bash scripts to help rip CDs and manage a music collection. Rips music video DVDs and music CDs to files on your hard drive. Reads track information in from a file on disk. Transcodes music files from and to a variety of formats using mplayer/lame/libogg. Specify an artist name to have their back catalogue copied to a folder. Corrects the case of artist names/song titles for all music files/folders of music files. Adds artist information to files ripped with song title only. Does not support CDDB lookups for track information.
Python Audio Tools is a collection of audio handling programs that work from the command line. These include programs for CD extraction, track conversion from one audio format to another, track renaming and retagging, track identification, CD burning from tracks, and more. It supports internationalized track filenames and metadata using Unicode. It works with high-definition, multi-channel audio as well as CD-quality. Track conversion uses multiple CPUs or CPU cores if available to greatly speed the transcoding process. Track metadata can be retrieved from MusicBrainz, FreeDB, or compatible servers. Audio formats supported are WAV, FLAC, WavPack, MP3, Ogg Vorbis, M4A, Apple Lossless, and more.
MP3 Management can be used to build a catalog of MP3 files in a MySQL database. It can traverse a given directory to find MP3 files. For each MP3 file that is found, it extracts its ID3 tags, including album art, and adds an entry in a MySQL database. The class also extracts 20 second clips of each MP3 file and stores them in a subdirectory named clips. The duration of the clips is configurable. The class is intended to be used with the Id3 Tag Correction and Downloading script, which corrects id3 tags and downloads lyrics, artist biographies, and other information using Web services and other Web sites.
ioAmarok is a music player for Infodomestic Objects (Linux/BSD) with an intuitive interface. It is built with SpatialBundle technology, so it does not require installation nor any administrator privilege access. It does not depend on any libraries such as the KDE libraries nor the Qt libraries.
SvOlli's Little Audio Related Thingies, or SLART for short, is a compilation of rather simple programs that are related to audio files: it consists of a player (Partyman), a CD ripper, a tag editor, and some other tools. These programs can communicate with each other via a custom IPC bus, so a newly ripped track can be automatically queued in the player, for example.
OpenDJMix is a virtual DJ system which allows you to mix MP3 files and audio CD tracks. It consists of a C++ API that manages a virtual sound bus with its I/O and a Qt GUI that enables a user to mix 4 MP3 or audio CD tracks. The API has been designed to be used in all multitrack sound tools.
datapacker is a tool to group files by size such that they fill fixed-size containers (called "bins") using the minimum number of containers. This is useful, for instance, if you want to archive a number of files to CD or DVD, and want to organize them such that you use the minimum possible number of CDs or DVDs. In many cases, datapacker executes almost instantaneously. Of particular note, the hardlink action can be used to effectively copy data into bins without having to actually copy the data at all. datapacker is a tool in the traditional Unix style; it can be used in pipes and call other tools.
