Projects / PhonoRipper


PhonoRipper is an easy to use, all-in-one GUI tool for creating audio CDs from analog sources like vinyl records. It uses Cdrdao for CD writing and Normalize for volume normalization. Features include a fully buffered WAV file recorder with mixer and VU meter (supporting both ALSA and OSS drivers), automatic detection of track borders, an intuitive drag'n'drop CD writing interface with CD-text support, CDDB queries of CD text data, and a WYSIWYG CD cover editor.

Recent releases

  •  20 Mar 2010 17:44

    Release Notes: This release adds a workaround for systems with a broken BLT, which could cause a segfault when trying to open a dialog window.

    •  05 Dec 2009 15:48

      Release Notes: A bug that caused PhonoRipper to crash on program start when the audio device was blocked by another process was fixed.

      •  30 Nov 2009 20:05

        Release Notes: The automatic call to "cdrdao scanbus" on program startup can now be disabled and the CD writer device can be configured manually, so PhonoRipper can be effectively used on systems where cdrdao uses a buggy libscg that breaks the scanbus functionality.

        •  04 Dec 2008 00:10

          Release Notes: The mixer interface was completely redesigned, and a "Mute" switch per mixer track and a configuration option to hide selected mixer tracks from the screen were added. Besides this, a few cosmetic changes have taken place, and the HTML documentation and German translation were updated.

          •  01 Sep 2008 20:17

            Release Notes: A simple WYSIWYG CD cover editor has been added. CD text data or custom text, as well as user-defined background colors or images, can be put on single- or double-sided "booklets" and jewel case inlays and be sent directly to the printer or stored in a Postscript file.
