Aragon, could you say what the NLS variant is for? I don't know which one to download. Confused

Well, I downloaded the asunder-1.9.1.pet and tried it out. I used it to convert a 4-CD audio book to mp3. I chose 32 kbps. There was no mono choice, but the end result was the same size as when I converted the book to 32 kbps mono using RealPlayer in Windows.

The good:
I found asunder to be easy to configure and at least as fast as RealPlayer in Windows at ripping a CD and converting it to mp3, which means it is about twice as fast as Pawdioconverter.

The bad:
I've gotten used to the way the Pawdioconverter GUI makes it easy to number sequentially the mp3 files converted from multiple CDs and save them in a single folder, which I prefer to leaving the files in separate folders that correspond to each CD. I have only used asunder to convert 4 CDs, but I didn't see a way to save the resulting mp3 files in one folder. No doubt a little more perseverance will turn up a way.
I don't know yet if asunder will save my preferences when I shut down. Pawdioconverter won't, so it will be a big plus if asunder does.

i have to look at this but i don't think that this is possible.

I'm sorting all my things the other way, allways

ARTIST/ALBUM/ALBUM CD-NR/[TRACK-NR]-[TRACK-ARTIST]-[TRACK-TITLE]

so that this limitation is no problem for me. But i will have a look.

Neat.....and tried 1.90 in puppy 2 so I don't think its too demanding on gtk2 anyway.

Funny thing is I noticed all these rippers make wav files first but when I did it by hand I piped cdda2wav to lame and it worked ok.....is it to do with better error handling?

cheers

mike

edit...ooo very fast rip too Smile ...how did you know I had a pile of cd's

How fast is your CPU? Perhaps a slower CPU wouldn't be able to rip and convert simultaneously.

hmm was done on a slow 700MHz machine...buffer underrun with a hard to read disk maybe though linux seems good at this.
I pipe mp3 files to cdrecord to burn audio and when I loaded the machine up recording dropped to like 1x or less but still resulted in a clean burn.
I pause audio recording by halting arecord piped lame and that copes as well.

Was just curious

@ flash
i've checked it, you're right, no option to start counting tracks with a given number.

i will sent a feature request to the author as i think this is a usefull feature.

if we have a starting no. it would be easy to do what you want:
1. Give all CDs of a set the same Album Name.
2. set starting-no. for cd 2, cd3...
3. rip

a possible workaround:
1. Give all CDs of a set the same Album Name.
2. Change the Filename in the options for each cd to
Code:
01-%N-%A-%T
02-%N-%A-%T
...
NN-%N-%A-%T


@mikeb
don't know why, but you're right, afaik most linux-rippers don't do on-the-fly. it seems to me that it's the linux-way of ripping, more secure, less demanding.

dumb question...how do you know which song is which?

Yes aragon..I figured dealing with failed track rips would get messy and asunder rips really fast anyway and the cd can be removed once done and left to encode ....great for letting the cdrive cool down before the next one....we have to pamper these dodgy optical media Very Happy

Mike, I was talking about audio books on CD. Audio books typically fill about 6~8 CDs, but I've seen several over 20. Bill Clinton's "My Life" filled 44 CDs. Laughing Each CD is broken up into tracks, I suppose for convenience in finding a particular place in the book. Some audio book CDs have as many as 99 tracks (the limit for a CD) but most have around 20 per CD. Anyway, the tracks are usually just numbered, not named.

I convert audio books from CD to (32 kbps mono) mp3 so they don't fill up my mp3 player, which is how I listen to them. I can't hear the difference between the CD and the 32 kbps mono mp3.

Instead of having a folder for each CD, I renumber the files in each folder so that I can combine all the files in a single folder. I have several reasons for doing this. The primitive OS of the mp3 players I own seem to have less trouble dealing with having all the files in a single folder than with having them in several folders making up a book, and it's easier to tell where I am in the book.

Thanks aragon for this useful app Smile

I've always stuck with using my PlexWriter with the bundled PlexTools, before now so am looking forward to trying this out.
