For a first attempt at flying solo for an episode of HPR, Kevie takes a look at a variety of open source CD ripping software. Looking at graphical applications https://wiki.gnome.org/Apps/SoundJuicer: Sound Juicer and http://littlesvr.ca/asunder/: Asunder along with the command line tools http://bashburn.dose.se/: Bashburn and http://bach.dynet.com/crip/: Crip. Along with considering if it is worth having a dedicated ripping tool when a fully fledged audio suite https://wiki.gnome.org/Apps/Rhythmbox/: Rhythmbox and http://www.videolan.org/vlc/: VLC will also allow ripping.

Regular listeners to the http://unseenstudio.co.uk/category/tuxjam-ogg/: TuxJam podcast will know that Kevie is a big fan of creative commons music and this episode is no different with the tracks by http://20lb.net/: 20lb Sounds and http://bridgesplosion.bandcamp.com/: Blowing Up Bridges.

K3b

Sadly K3B was missing from the list. Definitely one to review.

This was a nice informative introduction to these rippers. I greatly enjoyed the music intermissions too. :)
