13.0 > Audio > abcde (

abcde is a frontend command-line utility (actually, a shell script)
that grabs tracks off a CD encodes them to Ogg/Vorbis, MP3, FLAC,
OGG/Speex, MPP/MP+(Musepack) and/or M4A/AAC format, and tags them
all in one go.

abcde requires cd-discid which can be found on There
are many features that abcde supports and many of these packages can
be also found on

* faac : for creating m4a/aac files
* id3lib : for manipulating ID3v1 and ID3v2 tags
* id3v2 : for writing id3v2 tags
* lame : for creating mp3 files
* mppenc : for creating MPP/MP+(Musepack) files
* speex : for creating Speex files
* vorbisgain : for adjusting the volume of ogg vorbis files

Try running abcde as root (sudo or whatever) if abcde/cd-discid thinks
your favorite audio cd is a data cd. Please note also that faac needs
to have mp4 support enabled to work correctly with abcde.
