Hello I tried to rip some Audio CDs into the lossless flac format.
Flac has different compression rates and multiple arguments which can be passed. Normally I like to use
flac with the argument
-V8 which means, that the ripped content is validated and that the highest compression rate is used. Remember: Flac is lossless. So the compression rate influences not the quality. It influences just the processing time and the file size.
I used Rhythmbox and RipperX to rip my Audio CDs.
Well, Rhythmbox can identify the Audio CD and shows the interprets name and all track titles automatically. But it is not possible to edit the ripping format options. It is not possible to adjust the compression level. It uses the default compression level of 5 instead.
So I tried RipperX. In the options menu I can add additional arguments, which are used, when
flac is called. This good, so I can adjust the compression level. Well, but RipperX cannot identify the Audio CD. It does not show the interprets name and all track titles.
I'm searching for a way to rip my Audio CDs into flac format with the highest compression level and the correct interprets name and all track titles. Of course I could use Rhythmbox to rip my Audio CDs into wave and then use
flac to convert into flac and then delete the old wave files, but I am searching for a way to do both steps at once.
Does anybody know a way to rip an audio CD into flac without my issues?
