grip – cd-player and cd-ripper for the Gnome desktop

Last Updated on July 15, 2023

grip is a cd-player and cd-ripper for the Gnome desktop. It has the ripping capabilities of cdparanoia builtin, but can also use external rippers (such as cdda2wav).

It also provides an automated frontend for MP3 (and other audio format) encoders, letting you take a disc and transform it easily straight into MP3s. Internet disc lookups are supported for retrieving track information from disc database servers.

Grip works with DigitalDJ to provide a unified “computerized” version of your music collection.

Features include:

  • Highly configurable.
  • Full-featured CD player.Tracks can be selected by clicking on them with the left mouse button. Double-clicking will select the track, and begin playing it.
  • Track mode selection interface (shown in The Play Mode Interface) allows you to control how Grip plays the tracks on a CD.
  • Rip+Encode — rips and then encode all selected tracks.
  • Rip Only — rips all selected tracks, but not encode them.
  • DDJ Scan – inserts all track information for the current disc into DigitalDJ’s database (if it is installed).
  • Rip partial track — risp a portion of a single track (as specified by the “Start sector” and “End sector” values). The “Play” button can be used preview the selected portion.
  • Uses cdparanoia, cdda2wav, or other rippers.
  • Encode with oggenc, bladeenc, lame, l3enc, xingmp3enc, mp3encode, gogo, flac, faac, opusenc, or another encoder.
  • Communicate through a proxy server.
