crip is a terminal-based ripper/encoder/tagger tool for creating Ogg Vorbis files (or MP3 files for crip 1.X) under Unix/Linux. It is well-suited for someone seeking to make a lot of Ogg/MP3 files from CDs and have them all properly labeled and professional-quality with a minimum of hassle.
The Music Control Center can help you organize your existing sound file collection and walk you through the process of ripping backup copies of your CDs, moving the newly-created sound files to the correct location, and updating the database appropriately. It allows you to create playlists on-the-fly, save them, and load them for playback at a later date. You can search your collection by artist, album title, label, producer, song title, and year released.
rip-utils is a comprehensive command line toolkit for ripping, encoding, tagging, organizing, compiling, and otherwise managing audio archives. Each utility participates in a common framework that allows commodity tools (such as file browsers, multimedia players, and streaming servers) to access your digital catalog simply and effectively. A single command `ru rip` (tuned for optimal quality using cdparanoia and LAME) drives the ripping, encoding, and tagging process from end to end. rip-utils also provides powerful support for retrieving, modifying, comparing, and submitting album information using freedb servers.
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.
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).
MP3do is an "all in one" bash script. It is useful for decoding and mastering audio files. It can decode a list of MP3 or Ogg Vorbis files to WAV or CD-R, auto-convert poor quality MP3s to 44100Hz stereo, check whether all files fit on a CD, normalize all WAV files (adjust the volume to a standard volume level), and burn a CD.
