Linux Ripping & File conversion software


Savage

Recommended Posts

I've just installed Linux on my laptop, poking around and getting used to it.

 

Any recommendations for a ripping and file conversion software on Linux? Something similar to dbpoweramp or xld?

Install Wine and then EAC. The versions above 0.99 have a problem with unregistered DLL files, see this forum for a remedy.

 

There is a command line tool called cdparanoia and a front end rubyripper, adding some additional features.

 

I use soundconverter for file conversion and Ex Falso for tag editing.

lol! Is there a search function or something here :D

 

It's always worth asking if there is something new and amazing. I did find the search function on Google and a mixed bag of some software that doesn't appear to be supported anymore and a host of older articles on the topic. CA inhabitants seem to know whats new/supported/working well.

 

Going to find a version of grip to try now..

Actually, those are threads I created here while on my own Linux adventure.

No electron left behind.

Python Audio Tools (AccurateRip verification, access to Musicbrainz and FreeDB, format conversion, DVD-A ripping, etc). The only flaw is that (I think) does not extract HTOA (and does not use C2 pointers like any other native ripper, for now)

 

Sorry for my english.
