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.
K-Yamo is an MP3 and Ogg Vorbis tagger with ID3v2 support. It can store ID3v1, ID3v2.3, or ID3v2.4 tags. It also stores pictures in the tags. K-Yamo supports multi-file editing. It can guess tags out of filenames, and fetches the missing parts from musicbrainz. It also cleans up your files into a structured filesystem tree which makes use of the tags in the files. Finally, it is a CD ripper with FreeDB support. A MySQL database can optionally be used for tagging.
RipOff is a GTK+ based CD ripper for Linux (and hopefully for other Unix systems once some testing and fixing have been done) that has a simple interface, CDDB lookups, and a plugin-based encoder architecture. It attempts to appeal to those users who want a non-GNOME dependent CD ripper with a simple interface, or users who just don't like the interfaces of the other GTK+ CD rippers.
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.
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.
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.
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.
