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.
cdstatus checks for drive errors, outputs disc information (such as type and table of contents), and is capable of ripping full CDs, using configurable track ranges and retry counts. It handles cddb lookups and makes use of per-user .cdstatus configuration files. It usually produces identical output to cdparanoia with much faster execution. It features direct-to-lame MP3 encoding and Ogg Vorbis encoding, as well as twolame support.
Xpand is a simple Python script with Glade GUI front-end for sox, cdparanoia, notlame, mpg123, and normalize. It uses the compand option in sox to adjust the dynamic range of music so the soft parts can be heard in a noisy environment, such as a car. The volume level can be normalized to a standard level so that music originally recorded at different levels will all have the same volume. Music can be read from an MP3, WAV file, or straight from a music CD and output to a MP3 or WAV file.
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.
The One Ripper is a program for ripping and encoding MP3 files from CDs. It has many advanced features, including background encoding, as well as queuing of files to be encoded, ID3v1 and ID3v2 tagging, CDDB for track naming, easy renaming of tracks from CDDB (to make dealing with multi-artist CDs easier), flexible file naming, a choice of multiple encoders (LAME, Oggenc, BladeEnc, and Gogo), and a choice of multiple rippers (cdparanoia, cdda2wav, and dagrab). It includes some MP3 utilites for stripping ID3v1 & ID3v2 tags, retagging files based upon file name, and creating band & album directories & playlists.
Distributed MP3/Ogg Encoder is a distributed MP3/Ogg encoder/ripper front-end. To use this you run one script to rip a CD into .wav files, and you run the other one on as many computers as you have. This second script examines the .wav files, encodes them, and writes them out as .mp3 or .ogg files. It has FreeDB support. Requires a ripper program, an encoder program, and a few Perl modules.
CD-Rchive2 is a complete revamp of the popular but now aged CD-Rchive program. It is intended to be used with cdrecord-ProDVD, cdda2wav, and mkisofs for the production of data and music CDs and data DVDs. Built in tools allow cloning of a complete CD or DVD and writing copies. A Boot Wizard will guide you through steps required to make a bootable CD or DVD, write the code, and compile a binary menu program which runs with isolinux. (If this software suddenly stops working, there is a good chance your cdrecord-ProDVD key has expired; get a new one from the site.)
