MP3do is an "all in one" bash script useful to decode many audio files types and burn it on a audio CD.

MP3do is a "host" script that split his works in four different phases:
check for audio file type
calculate for total song's time duration
decode (changing format)

At the beginning and at the end of each phase can be executed a number of plugins to modify input files. Thanks to his "pluggable" nature this script is completely independent from programs that handle input and output format file.

To add a new format file still not supported must be only coded a new plugin (it's very easy), and MP3do will use it every time it's needed. Actually it uses plugin to handle OGG/Vorbis, MP3, all format files supported by sox, and CD audio track. There are many other plugins to perform actions like normalize, leadin/leadout control, check for available disk space, and CD-cover making.

To write a CD-R, MP3do use cdrecord or cdrdao, and uses gettext to print localized output messages. With this script it's really quick and easy to create a CD with your favourite songs.

With following command
MP3do -s ~/mysongs/*.ogg cdda:1,4,5 --normalize -w -a

you will:
decode all OGG files in ~/mysongs/ dir to WAV
rip track number 1,4 and 5 from audio CD in default reader
auto convert poor quality audio files to 44100Hz stereo for a proper mastering process
check whether all files fits on CD in default mastering device
normalize all WAV files adjusting volumes to a standard volume level
Burn a CD with cdrecorder.
