How to rip an audio CD in Debian

Asked By 10 points N/A Posted on -

This is of course an easy task in Windows-based OS. Please I need guides on how to rip an audio CD in Debian. I've tried other open-source operating systems before but Debian is giving some hard time with common tasks. If you could forward some sites I can refer to that would also be great. Thanks!

How to rip an audio CD in Debian



Sound juicer is not a music player, even though it allows you to playback songs. In fact, it exists only for one purpose – to rip audio cd into music files. The good thing is, it did its job well and fast.Ubuntu users can install sound juicer with the command  (:sudo apt-get install sound-juicer)

Once installed, open the sound juicer application via application> Sound & video > Audio CD Extractor

As usual, it is best to configure the settings we start the ripping. Go to EDIT >PREFERENCES >SIMILARLY you can set the location to store your music, the folder hierarchy and the music format

Note the default Ubuntu does not come with mp3 format unless you install the "Ubuntu restricted-extra" package you will not be able to choose mp3 as the output format

When you are done with the configuration simply pop you audio CD.Sound Juicer will automatically detect the cd and fetch the album info from the web, you just have to click the "Extract" button to start the ripping.

The whole ripping process is much faster than rhythmbox, typically, a cd of 10 songs (about 50mins of playback time ) takes about 5 minutes to finish ripping
