It supports multiple output in a single CD read, the creation of a single track from a CD, resume operation, CD concatenation, volume normalization, gapless encoding (with LAME), parallelization, SMP, proxies, customizable filename organization and munging, playlist generation, distributed encoding via distmp3, and more.

ctrlxmms is a small Perl script designed to increase the useability of XMMS. With it, you can use most of the common GUI functions of XMMS from the CLI. You also have a few handy commands which are not available from the GUI. Together with lirc and a remote (eg. Anir Multimedia Magic), this is a wonderful tool.
DigitalDJ is an SQL-based MP3-player frontend designed for people who want to create an MP3 version of their CD collection. It is designed to work with the Grip ripping/encoding application (but can be used separately). When Grip encodes MP3 files, it will place all of the song information into an SQL database. DigitalDJ can then use this information to create playlists based on a number of criteria.
dmcat is a Digital Music CATalog program.

It currently only supports the MP3 format using ID3 tags. The following hierarchies are supported: Album, Artist, Artist_Album, Genre, Miscellaneous (catch-all), Title, and Year.
