KAudioCreator is a great KDE (part of kdemultimedia) utility for storing backup copies of your Compact Discs (CDs) as wav, MP3, FLAC or OGG.

[edit] Hot blond chick friendly

KAudioCreator is so easy to use. Really. You start it, put in a music CD, tell it which device you put it in and wait a few seconds while KAudioCreator interregates freedb.freedb.org regarding the contents of the CD. KAudioCreator figures out in most cases and replaces the list of track numbers with a nice list of the songs on the CD.

All you have to do is to click "Select all tracks" and then the "Rip Selection" button. This makes it start two seperate jobs: One which rips the CD and one which encoded ripped .wav files.

KAudioCreator will automatic lookup, rip and encode a CD, fill in the right track information to the ID tag used by the target format and place the files in your music folder for you. All you have to do is insert a CD select all or part of it and click rip. It is extremely user-friendly.

[edit] The setup

The default configuration should work just fine for most people. However, you may want to change some settings before going about ripping CDs.

You probably want to change


under Encoder -> Encoded File Location to something like


You can also change the options used to encode audio by LAME (for .mp3), OggEnc and FLAC.
