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.
ripx is a script designed to make ripping CDs as easy as possible. It features CDDB lookup, ID3 tag editing prior to ripping, playlist file generation, album directory creation, and generally a nicer interface than many similar tools. By default, ripx uses cdparanoia to extract audio from CDs and lame to encode the audio to MP3 format at the quality of your choice. If you wish to use alternative applications for extraction or encoding, modifying ripx to handle these should be fairly painless.
Rippix is a fork of ripperX, a fast and easy to use CD ripper. While ripperX does a good job of ripping and encoding songs from a CD, it uses a rather outdated user interface. Rippix tries to fill this gap. This includes porting Rippix to GTK+ 3. Additionally, a lot of deprecated code will be rewritten and documentation will be added. The reason for a fork is that after some hacking on the ripperX code, it appeared that more modifications were necessary in order to port to GTK+ 3 conveniently than what could be appreciable by ripperX devs, like removing all the XPM images (including the logo) from the UI.
cdname.py names MP3 files and generates M3U playlists from CDDB/freedb INF files. (These are often retrieved with cdda2wav -L). MP3s and playlists can be named using any combination of artist name, track title, album name, track number, etc. Many aspects are configurable via command line options. It should complement most ripping/encoding pipelines well.
Wagtail is a client/server-based tool for audio encoding. It is designed to make it easier to encode and organize files in bulk. Wagtail allows you to enforce standards across your media collection with the use of "formats", each describing an audio format, how to encode/tag, etc. It also uses "classes", a combintation of formats and quality settings, as well as "tasks", which set the naming conventions, file locations, and reprocessing stages for files, and restricts which classes can be used. It includes wagdisc for ripping CDs and wagfile for processing files.
DaemonRip runs as a Unix daemon and polls a CD drive to see if an audio CD is inserted. When an audio CD is detected, it will automatically connect to a CDDB server to determine the name, artists, and tracks of the CD, and begin to rip and encode the CD using your preferred ripping and encoding applications. When finished ripping the disc, it will be ejected from the drive, allowing you to insert a new one to continue the process. No other user interaction is required. This application also keeps statistics about your ripping and encoding times, and logs all of the actions to a log file.
CDDBD.sh is a shellscript speaking the CDDB Protocol version 1 without enhancements and read only. CDDBD.sh allows to query a local database on a filesystem that was filled with entries using such programs like xmcd or kscd. CDDBD.sh was developed to be used in a local or home network and not to serve a WAN.
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.
