  1. nice… you should try abcde too. It does the trick for me since… forever.

  2. Another Thomas

    Why use a GUI?
    cdparanoia -B
    (cdda2wav is newer/faster but doesn’t rip hidden tracks, sad…)

    Why MP3?
    I’m using FLAC (PC) / OGG (Phone).

    Why normalizing?
    I’m using replaygain. (No, it’s note the same.)

    For MP3s you can do it in one step:
    for FILE in *.wav; do lame -q 0 -V 2 –noreplaygain -Y –scale $(wavegain -p -x “$FILE”) “$FILE” “${FILE%%.*}.mp3″; done

    Hmm, now that you mention this, I have heard of it before. Shame I hadn’t remembered it before. Perhaps one day I’ll get a chance to check it out.

    Why use a GUI?
    cdparanoia -B

    Hmm, another way of doing it. Not sure what replaygain is though, not sure why I would need it. That for tip though will like to try if I get a chance.

  4. To be able to have ripit to be able to upload to CDDB, I use msmtp. Ripit looks for sendmail so change this I’ve done:

    sudo ln -s /usr/bin/msmtp /usr/sbin/sendmail
    sudo sed -i 's/sendmail -t -r/sendmail -t -f/g' /usr/bin/ripit

    and it works good. Haven’t tried msmtp-mta to see if it can do this.
