    Create a Audio Disc on Debain based system

    Hi,
    Does anyone knows a way to burn a audio disc in Linux. I am not talking about the new ones. This is related to a old server system which has some audio files in it. I want to burn those audio files in a disc and the same can be played on a different computer. In comparison to Linux, Windows is much easier in working with audio and video files. What to do if there is no way to get the file in a removable media or external drive. The chances lies only for burning to disc. But is this same as creating a data disc in Linux. Thanks in advance.

    Re: How to burn Audio CD in Linux

    You must have a CD or DVD if you want to put your music on a media type CD-ROM. Your Linux distribution should also have tools to perform various operations necessary for the extraction, encoding, normalization, playback and burning. The basic tools you can use to work with audio files in Linux are cdparanoia for extraction from an audio CD, mpg123 for reading and decoding of MP3, madplay for reading and decoding of MP3, blade for encoding and decoding of MP3, vorbis-tools for encoding, decoding and playback of OGG, flac to encode and decode FLAC, flac123 for playing FLAC, normalize for the normalization of wave files, cdrdao for burning CDs in Disk At Once and cdrtools for burning CDs. If you can get anyone of this then you can burn a audio disc.

    Blade is able to convert an MP3 file into a WAVE file and vice versa, but it is not a reader. Therefore it is necessary if you want to play MP3s from the command line, install mpg123 or madplay. The latter two are able to decode an MP3 WAVE, but not vice versa. The vorbis-tools suite contains several programs such as' ogg123, oggdec, oggenc and ogginfo. Standardization helps to put the different WAVE files to the same sound level (volume) to avoid having to raise or lower the volume when listening to the next song.

    Whatever the format is of audio file and in which you want to rip tracks from audio CD then you will have to use the command cdparanoia. The tracks are extracted in WAVE format. If you prefer MP3, OGG or FLAC, you must also use an encoder. Indeed, the encoders that are available to us cannot do the extraction from an audio CD. To fill this gap, we perform the extraction with WAVE cdparanoia then we encode the wave file in the desired format without loss of audio quality.

    If you want to copy the audio from a CD to a system then use the simple command - cdparanoia - batch - output-wav. This command assumes that / dev / cdrom points to the drive in which is inserted audio CD. You can check if cdparanoia finds out the CD with the cdparanoia -svQ The track list is displayed. If nothing appears, it is likely that cdparanoia can not find your reader. Just then tell it where it lies with the option --force-cdrom-device /dev/cdrom1 assuming / dev/cdrom1 is the block device representing the drive.

    Re: How to burn Audio CD in Linux

    To burn an audio CD, you will WAV format because this the only format supported. Recover your files to WAVE format. You will have to mix the volume of files to CD. This is called the standard audio. The principle is simple: the program that we use will calculate the average noise level of all tracks passed as an argument, then it will adjust the volume of each track so they are all the same. In reality it should be a little more complicated than that but the general principle. Insulate to burn files to a new folder so that the average is not distorted by the presence of other files. Then run the following command - normalize - *. wav mix
