Which Music Player to use?

Hi everyone, just a quick question.  I have a large cd collection, (God I now know what people felt like with their old vinyls lol) and I want to import them, catalogue them and generally get them out of the way. Plus it will put an end to the wife's, "when are you going to do something about these" speeches. Which programme would you recommend to do the job?  I see many of the programmes that you would expect to do the job, just don't have this option.

Re: Which Music Player to use?

Here is a handy guide on how to get it done.

Edit:

I used RipperX before and was very pleased with its functionality.

Thanks for this, it just what I needed.  I can already hear peace and quiet.

Re: Which Music Player to use?

make sure you're happy with the quality, FLAC is best, then I prefer OGG vorbis, at a high bitrate.
All depends on your HDD space. Also - what you're going to be playing them on, I know android devices are capable of FLAC, OGG and MP3. Some portable players aren't.
I can tell you from experience - you don't want to be doing it again glasses
still listening to splashy, glitchy 128k mp3s I made 15 years ago.  roll

Re: Which Music Player to use?

There is also rubyripper which is useful if your disks are not in perfect condition or you are paranoid about rip quality.
It also has a CLI mode which is nice if you don't need to change settings since you can just start it and let it run.

Re: Which Music Player to use?

For ripping CDs, I don't think you can beat ABCDE.  It is a CLI program, but it actually displays CDparanoia feedback, which can be helpful if ripping stalls.  RipperX looks like a good GTK alternative though!


Yes; as a matter of fact, I am a cop.  Why do you ask? cool

Re: Which Music Player to use?

For playback, I use Audacious. the regular Grahphic EQ is crap like pretty much all GEQ's. --I use the Steve Harris 4 band parametric LADSPA via the LADSPA effects host. I also use the Barry's Satan Maximiser to boost levels on quieter recordings, but most of the time it remains off.

Ripping and conversion is handled by the Gnome Sound converter, where I rip to either 320kb/s mp3, or .wav.
