How to convert songs into mp3/ogg/flac/ and more in Gnome

Filed under: Gnome, Tuxicity — tuxicity @ 10:37 am

After reading “How To Convert Songs From An Audio CD Into MP3/Ogg Files With K3b” I felt like having read a howto for shooting a mouse with a cannon.

So here is the “Gnome Simplicity alternative”

When you insert an audio cd in a Gnome environment, Sound Juicer pops up giving you the choice of playing, or ripping it into whatever format you would like , no fuss no muss.

Of course you need the codecs installed to rip from cd to mp3.

Some Sound Juicer screenshots:

soundjuicer-prefs.pngSelect preferences to choose in what format to rip.

Grip is a good alternative to Sound Juicer for ripping cd’ s

If you would like to convert from flac to ogg/mp3 or mp3 to ogg/flac or whatever try SoundConverter.

Gnome rules when it comes to ripping!! 🙂

  1. When you insert an audio cd on Kubuntu, a window pops up giviing you the choice of playing or ripping the tracks. If you choose to rip them, KAudioCreator comes up, fetches the cd data from CDDB, and just asks you what format to rip to and you’re done. Simplicity too.

  2. I agree, of course there are also easier ways to rip audio-cd’s in a KDE environment;
    The post I made is mostly a response to the K3B howto I mentioned in the first line.
