Linux Rip Audio CD

How Do I Use This Script?

Download the script. Put audio cd into drive. Create directory to store mp3s, enter:
mkdir music
cd music
mkdir "Album name"
cd !!:1
/path/to/ripcd.sh

  1. Oops, I used a wrong variable for the usage example ^^

  2. The script should read

    I corrected spelling and added error checking. The script will now abort on a ripping error and won’t delete Wave files which have not been successfully encoded.
    If any error occurs, the exit code is not 0.
    Furthermore, “–vbr-new” and “-b 360” are contradictory options, the first telling lame to use variable bit rate and the second telling lame to use constant bit rate for encoding. I replaced the second with “-q 0” to achieve the best possible result.
    The usage example could be simplified with

    mkdir -p "music/Album name"
    cd $?
    /path/to/ripcd.sh
