cdparanoia is a
Compact Disc Digital Audio (CDDA) Digital Audio
Extraction (DAE) tool.
This software reads digital audio directly from a
CD (with no analog step between), then writes the data to a file or
pipe in WAV, AIFC or raw 16 bit linear PCM format.
It was designed to be a minimalistic,
high-quality CD ripper to compensate for and adjust
to poor hardware to produce a flawless rip.
cdparanoia's strength lies in its ability to handle a variety
of hardware, including inexpensive drives prone to misalignment, frame
jitter and loss of
streaming during atomic reads. cdparanoia is also good at
reading and repairing data from damaged CDs.
The Paranoia library, libparanoia, is the standard CD ripping
library in KDE
