14.1 > Audio > abcde (2.7.1)

abcde is a frontend command-line utility (actually, a shell script)
that grabs tracks off an audio CD, encodes them to Ogg Vorbis, MP3,
MP2, FLAC, Opus, Speex, WAV, WavPack, Musepack, M4A/AAC, Monkey’s
Audio and/or True Audio formats, and tags them all in one go.

On Slackware systems without third party packages Ogg Vorbis, FLAC
and WavPack are supported. There are many additional features that
abcde supports by installing one or more of these dependencies:

* lame for creating MP3 files
* eyeD3 for tagging MP3 files (default)
* id3v2 for tagging MP3 files (with ID3TAGV=id3v2.3)
* id3 for tagging MP3 files (with ID3TAGV=id3v1)

* twolame for creating MP2 files
* mutagen for tagging MP2 and MP3 files (with ID3TAGV=id3v2.3
and ID3V2=mid3v2)

* opus-tools for creating Opus files

* speex for creating Speex files

* musepack-tools for creating Musepack files

* faac for creating M4A/AAC files (default)
* fdkaac for creating M4A/AAC files
* ffmpeg for creating M4A/AAC, MP2 and WavPack files (if built
with support for these formats)
* wine for running neroAacEnc, qaac and fhgaacenc

* mac for creating Monkey’s Audio files
* apetag for tagging Monkey’s Audio files

* tta for creating True Audio files (default)
* ttaenc for creating True Audio files

* glyr for downloading album art
* mkcue for generating cue sheets for one-album files
* vorbisgain for adjusting the volume of Ogg Vorbis files

Install perl-MusicBrainz-DiscID and perl-WebService-MusicBrainz and set
CDDBMETHOD to "musicbrainz" if you would like to retrieve music
metadata and album art from MusicBrainz instead of freedb.

Try running abcde as root (sudo or whatever) if abcde/cd-discid thinks
your favorite audio cd is a data cd.

This requires: cd-discid
