crip is a terminal-based ripper/tagger/encoder tool for creating Ogg Vorbis/FLAC/MP3 files under UNIX/Linux.
It is well-suited for anyone (especially the perfectionist) who seeks to make a lot of files from CDs and have them all properly labeled and professional-quality with a minimum of hassle and yet still have flexibility and full control over everything.
Current versions of crip only support Ogg Vorbis and FLAC. If you want to make MP3 files go back to the past and use crip-1.0.
Here are some key features of "crip":
· Track grouping for automated tagging and appropriate normalization/vorbisgain on multi-track pieces.
· CDDB fetching to populate default information.
· CDDB submit to update the CDDB database with your more accurate info.
· Automates as much of the tagging as possible for fully-labeled professional quality music files.
· Automatically trims digital silence at the beginning and end of a track/group (if desired).
· European character support. Also European character-mapping support.
· Flexibility and full user control in tagging and file naming.
