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.
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.
MyBashBurn can burn data CDs, music CDs, and multisession CDs. It can burn and create ISO files. It can burn bin/cue files, and it can create MP3, Ogg, and FLAC files. It supports burning DVD images and data DVDs. MyBashBurn depends on cdrecord and other backend aplications. MyBashBurn is a fork of BashBurn, and it improves the user interface.
Grab&Burn is a powerful tool for grabbing, burning, and mastering of CD and DVD discs. It supports all types of optical storage media (including CD-R/RW, DVD-R/RW, DVD+R/RW, and DVD-RAM) as well as a wide variety of burning hardware. You can perform ordinal grabbing, copying, and burning operations as well as expert DVD authoring and mastering. These advanced features enable you to create valid DVDs from custom video files, for example, copied from other DVDs. Moreover, with DVD Splitting Wizard you may split DVDs into smaller parts and burn them to DVD writable discs, or use the StarPort DVD Emulator to watch DVD video movies on your PC. This enables you to create copies of 9.4 GB DVDs in several clicks.
cdrkit is CD Recording Kit, a collection of applications related to creation of optical disk media on Unix platforms, from creation of the filesystems used on such media to the actual burning process. It is heavily based on the cdrtools package (partially developed and maintained by Joerg Schilling before), but is maintained independently.
cdevour is a set of scripts designed to make CD ripping painless. Aside from swapping discs, it aims for as little user interaction as possible. Drives are continually polled for discs. Upon finding a disc in a drive, it determines what CD it is, makes sure it has enough disk space, and rips. Names are retrieved from CDDB and the disc is ejected when finished. CDs that have already been ripped are ejected immediately, and when there is not enough disk space, the script waits until there is. A separate encoding script encodes files into Ogg Vorbis in the background. Encoded files are tagged and renamed. Another script can move albums into a music directory automatically.
CD Stack is an advanced CD ripping and encoding application. It features shortcuts for when you have a large number of discs to rip and allows precise control over MP3 encoding. It can optionally import songs into iTunes, complete with track information and cover art. It uses the LAME Encoder to encode MP3s. A Universal binary is available.
