Rip and encode CDs with one command

Jack has been developed with one main goal: making OGGs (or MP3s) without having to worry. There is nearly no way that an incomplete rip goes unnoticed, e.g. jack compares WAV and OGG file sizes when continuing from a previous run. Jack also checks your HD space before doing anything (even keeps some MB free).

Jack is different from other such tools in a number of ways: - it supports different rippers and encoders - it is very configurable - it doesn't need X - it can "rip" virtual CD images like the ones created by cdrdao - when using cdparanoia, cdparanoia's status information is displayed and archived for all tracks, so you can see if something went wrong - it uses sophisticated disk space management, i.e. it schedules its ripping/encoding processes depending on available space. - freedb query, file renaming and id3/ogg-tagging - it can resume work after it has been interrupted. If all tracks have been ripped, it doesn't even need the CD anymore, even if you want to do a freedb query. - it can do a freedb query based on OGGs alone, like if you don't remember from which CD those OGGs came from. - freedb submissions

  As of this version, base_dir is no longer set in /etc/jackrc.  The
  reason for this is that there is no standard location for sound or
  media files and users may be surprised to find their files in ~/jack
  (the previous default of base_dir).  jack will now by default put
  the files in the current working directory.  You're welcome to set
  base_dir in ~
