Audex is an audio grabber tool for CD-ROM drives based on KDE 4.

Audex creates profiles for LAME, OGG Vorbis (oggenc), FLAC, MP4/M4A/AAC (faac) and RIFF WAVE. Please install your favorite encoder.
Of course for WAVE no external encoder is needed!
Beyond you can define custom profile, which means, that audex works together with commmand line encoders in general.

You can define extensive filename schemes. Please take a look at the documentation on the Audex webpage to see what's possible.

Some features are:
* Extracting with CDDA Paranoia. So you have quite perfect audio quality.
* Extracting and encoding run parallel.
* Extensive filename schemes.
* Filename editing with local and remote CDDB/FreeDB database.
* Metadata correction tools like capitalize etc.
* Multi-profile ripping (with one commandline-encoder per profile).
* Fetch covers from the internet and store them in the database.
* Create playlists, cover and template-based-info files in target directory.
* Creates ripping and encoding protocols.
* Transfer files with KDE KIO-Slaves.

**IMPORTANT NOTE: As LAME still can't handle unicode characters correct, Audex uses since version 0.73 eyeD3 for tagging mp3 files, if available. It is highly recommended to install eye3D on your system if you create mp3 files with Audex! **


Changelog 0.79 (Södertälje release)
* Only bugfix release.

Sorry, the Audex page was down for some weeks! There was a server problem and a problem with my hoster. But now everything should work again!

Thanks for this application.
I've just successfully compiled audex with Debian and KDE 4.2 beta.
In case anyone is interested, you need to install libkcddb-dev and libcdparanoia0-dev.

Do you mean the leaning effect of the reflection?
Okay, maybe I'm going to deactivate this in 0.62...

Thanks for the great app. I always wanted a great cdrip app based on kde, but I never liked kaudiocreator. One interesting feature it will be the capacity to add albumart to the tag of the file, lame already has a command line option to do this so I think it shouldn't be so hard to implement that.

Keep the good work!

Congratulations! I really like your program, I tried to rip some of my CDs and everything worked like a charm.

May I have some wishes? (I know next christmas is just a long time...)
1) A nice feature as an option for me (and possibly others) would be: integrating the cover into the *.mp3 files. So player like an ipod would show a picture when playing.
2) A button for selecting all tracks and immediately starting with ripping would be another nice feature.
Besides of this - I think it's even actually a very useful program.

Many thankx for your work!

 Short explanation

Good news!
The most interesting feature may be the new cover variable for the command line encoder mask:

This variable will be replaced with the temporary filename of the cover, e.g. to insert the cover in the id3 v2.3 tag with LAME.
The cover file will be created automatically by Audex.

This variable has six properties:
"format" defines the image format. Possible values are "PNG", "JPG" and "GIF" (Default: "JPG").
With "x" (width) and "y" (height) you can rescale the cover. If you don't set these values, the size of the cover image won't be changed.
Set "usenocover" to "true" to use image, which is shown if no cover for the current album is set (Default: false).
With "preparam" and "postparam" you can define parameters inserted before (pre) or behind (post) the filename of the temporary cover. These value are only shown if the cover set or "usenocover" is set to "true".

${cover format="JPG" x="300" y="300" preparam="-ti "}
So a filename of an jpg-image with the size of 300x300 will be inserted.
If no cover is set, this variable will be replaced by nothing, otherwise something like
-ti /tmp/cover.123.jpg
will be inserted.

Note: LAME discards cover files larger than 128 KiB. Please consider, if you set the format and size.

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
