I like sound juicer for ripping CDs, but the cd-database of music brainz is very scrappy compared to freedb.org. I wanted to change the source of the database but unfortunately I didn't find any config-file.

Is there any way to change it or not?

I found that Sound Juicer which tries to use MusicBrainz is busted, at least as of 13.10.

I don't know how to modify it to use freedb.org.

However, there is a similar program called Asunder which uses CDDB:

sudo apt-get install asunder

In action:

enter image description here

Asunder also has nice configuration options for encoding to OGG, MP3, FLAC and even AAC.

    As a bonus asunder uses cdparanoia for a perfect rip. Thanks for the tip!
