Jack is a console based cd-ripper. It supports cdparanoia and cdda2wav (amongst others) for extraction and various MP3 and OGG/Vorbis encoders; you can even rip from a cdrdao-generated CD image. Emphasis is on failure-safeness and ease of use. Jack can encode multiple tracks at once, good on SMP systems. It can resume its work if interrupted and keeps an eye on available HD space. Freedb query is also supported, any time you like, even after encoding. Jack can try to query freedb for MP3s of which you do not know the CD anymore, provided you have a complete rip and know the track sequence.
CDRX is a menu-based Perl script designed to help you use your CDRW with mkisofs and cdrecord to handle ISO creation, CDROM/CDRW device scans and setup, CDRW blanking, and CDRW burns. It is designed to supplant the need for an X-based CD burning utility, to provide features not found in other Unix CD burning programs, and to be easy for beginners to use.
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.
cdmp3 uses cdparanoia or cdda2wav to extract single tracks or even a whole CD, and converts them on-the-fly into MP3 or Ogg Vorbis files. Using the CDDB database, it is possible to include information like the artist's name or the track's title into the file name or as meta tags in the file content.
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.
MP3-CD-Sleeve is composed of two Perl scripts that produce HTML or LaTeX-style pages that can be printed as the index sleeve of an (MP3) CD. It briefly lists the directory hierarchy, by enumerating directories for ease of use in MP3 CD players. The LaTeX script tries to fit everything in a 5" x 5" (12.5cm x 12.5 cm) frame with wrap-around at the edges (no fold-out feature is included yet, it produces just the front cover).
