cdslayer is my pick.
Authored by: stonefish on Nov 02, '01 10:29:59PM

A while back I heard of a good cd-ripping command-line utility called cdslayer. It's essentially a Perl script that given an mp3 encoder (in this case LAME), will rip a CD completely and *then* convert it to mp3. The upside to this is that the CD will be ripped to an AIFF file about three times as fast as ripping into an MP3, allowing you to rip another CD while the script is still converting the AIFF to mp3. This is good for when you are converting a lot of CDs back to back, but will work with just one, also. A cursory search on Google will find it easily.

I did find cdslayer as well as newer versions of ripit.pl, on which it is based.

I couldn't get it to work since it seems to require a separate command-line CD ripper program, like dagrab, cdda2wav, tosha, cdd or cdparanoia. Where can I find one of these for Mac OS X?
