Sound Juicer

Sound Juicer is a GTK-based graphical front-end (GUI) for the cdparanoia CD ripping library. It allows the user to extract audio tracks from audio discs [2] and convert them into audio files that a personal computer or digital audio player can play. It supports ripping to any audio codec supported by a GStreamer plugin, such as mp3 (via LAME), Ogg Vorbis, FLAC and uncompressed PCM formats. Versions after 2.12 implement CD playing capability. Last versions produce lossy formats with default gstreamer settings only (VBR 128kbit/s only for mp3).

For example, if the computer is connected to the Internet, it will automatically attempt to retrieve track information[3] from the freely available MusicBrainz service. Sound Juicer is free and open-source software subject to the terms of the GNU GPL. Starting with version 2.10 it is an official part of the GNOME.
