Ripping is super fast and easy ONCE YOU DO SOME READING and setting up first. Create a ~/.abcde.conf file to store your settings once and for all, without having to give the same command every time or remember what the correct settings were.Search the website for examples. Remember to change the line "CDDBURL=" to CDDBURL="http://gnudb.gnudb.org/~cddb/cddb.cgi" because I think it's the only one that works. If something's going wrong chances are you HAVE made a mistake in the command or the settings file. Look again. If you do everything correctly, this little thing will detect your cd drive, detect any music cds inside, search online cd databases for the track names, rip, encode into any format, create ID tag and playlist with just ONE command: abcde
Super quick to rip. abcde -o mp3 is likely the only command I need to rip
Quicker than any of the GUI alternatives I've come across, and flexible. Absolutely brilliant.
great cd ripper. once set up how you like it (not to hard, just changing some options in a config file), it does a great job.
Takes some setting up to begin, but well worth it. It's the best CD ripper I've ever used.
