Working With CD Audio

Ripping CD audio to ogg or mp3 is accomplished with the grip application, which serves as a graphical front-ends to CDDB, cdparanoia, and either lame (for mp3s) or oggenc (for oggs).

Copying a CD is the domain of gtoaster, which does all of the things that you would expect a CD-creation tool to do: duplicate audio CDs, create data CD-ROMS, and create CDs from ISO files.


The following is the command-line way to copy CDs...


Copying an Audio CD
To copy an audio CD from /dev/cdrom to the CD-recorded in /dev/cdrom1, first run:
cdda2wav -D/dev/cdrom -v255 -B -Owav
and then run:
cdrecord -v dev=0,0,0 -dao -useinfo  *.wav
Note that cdrecord will appear to hand at 3Mb for a while before getting on with it. Note also that your cd-recorder may be at a different dev-- run
cdrecord -scanbus
to determine the proper device spec.
