jack - Rip and encode CDs with one command

Jack has been developed with one main goal: making OGGs (or MP3s) without having to worry. There is nearly no way that an incomplete rip goes unnoticed, e.g. jack compares WAV and OGG file sizes when continuing from a previous run. Jack also checks your HD space before doing anything (even keeps some MB free).
Jack is different from other such tools in a number of ways:
  • it supports different rippers and encoders
  • it is very configurable
  • it doesn't need X
  • it can "rip" virtual CD images like the ones created by cdrdao
  • when using cdparanoia, cdparanoia's status information is displayed and archived for all tracks, so you can see if something went wrong
  • it uses sophisticated disk space management, i.e. it schedules its ripping/encoding processes depending on available space.
  • freedb query, file renaming and id3/ogg-tagging
  • it can resume work after it has been interrupted. If all tracks have been ripped, it doesn't even need the CD anymore, even if you want to do a freedb query.
  • it can do a freedb query based on OGGs alone, like if you don't remember from which CD those OGGs came from.
  • freedb submissions
