shn2make works with sets of SHN or FLAC audio files and the make program to automate the burning of archive and audio CDs, and the encoding of MP3 and Ogg files. It finds the SHN or FLAC files in the current directory and verifies the MD5 checksums. It then looks for the .nfo or .txt file, finds the song names, and matches the songs to the available files. If everything is correct, it outputs the text of a Makefile. The targets of the makefile automate the various tasks that need to be done with SHN and FLAC sets. For example, "make Ogg" will uncompress and then encode all the files in the set to named and tagged Ogg Vorbis files.
Music Manager is a Konqueror plugin that lets you standardize the filenames of your music files, guess information and set ID3 tags from the file's name (this can be done to several files in one shot), rename many selected files based on their ID3 tags, set ID3 tags in mass for selected files with options for copying ID3s from other files and leaving some ID3 fields untouched, rename _ to space and vice versa, create HTML and text indexes of your collections (including total playing time, etc., configurable through templates), create nice CD covers with full listings of your music files (also configurable through templates), and organize your music collection to create a CD.
datapacker is a tool to group files by size such that they fill fixed-size containers (called "bins") using the minimum number of containers. This is useful, for instance, if you want to archive a number of files to CD or DVD, and want to organize them such that you use the minimum possible number of CDs or DVDs. In many cases, datapacker executes almost instantaneously. Of particular note, the hardlink action can be used to effectively copy data into bins without having to actually copy the data at all. datapacker is a tool in the traditional Unix style; it can be used in pipes and call other tools.
mp3cd-tools packs directories of MP3 files in a space-efficient way, so that they can be burnt to CD-Rs for playing on an MP3 CD player. It takes a list of directories containing MP3 files, arranged in order of favoritism, and puts as much music as possible onto each disc. It is not necessary to burn all of the planned CDs at the same time.
