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.

 PPA poobuntu

bit annoyed as the version in poobuntu LTS (or mint 9) is broken,
I've pulled the latest source and will put up a PPA at some point as I couldn't see one.

 filename pattern

 by braslau on: Mar 20 2011
Score 50%

Suggestion: use same filename pattern syntax as kid3
Thus rather (or in addition to)
${trackno length="2" fillchar="0"}

${trackno.n} Track with field width n (e.g. 001 for %{track.3})
${trackno} Track (without leading zeroes, e.g. 1)

${cdno length="2" fillchar="0"}
(absent in kid3!)
could have

[I would also like some way to add the cdno if set and non-zero with a separator (as in ${cdno}-${trackno})
but with no separator if unset or zero...]

Great application!
Some annoying bugs, though...
Using the current svn (and earlier versions), very often crash on CDDB lookup.

 Cover not showing

and clicking the cover image, though blank, does nothing - should open a fetch cover window. rest of the information shows (title, artist, tracks)

errors when running in konsole:

 Cover fetching

I've noticed that the fetching of cover art from Google has stopped working recently. Has something changed at their end?

here's a patch borrowed from Amaork's patch of the problem (bug BUG: 275265)

change line 167
from: "<a\\shref=\"(\\/imgres\\?imgurl=[^\"]+)\">[\\s\\n]*<img\\ssrc=\"([^\\s>]+)\"[^>]+>[\\s\\n]*</a>"

to: "<a\\shref=\"(\\/imgres\\?imgurl=[^\"]+)\">[\\s\\n]*<img[^>]+src=\"([^>]+)\"></a>"

not sure the above patch is 100%, the cover shows in Audex but if you try the fetch cover function all the cover sizes are displayed as "x, KiB"

despite my limited programming knowledege I finally managed to get it working. This is what I changed in utils/coverfetcher.cpp (beginning at line 165):

QRegExp rx("<a\\shref=\"(\\/imgres\\?imgurl=[^\"]+)\">[\\s\\n]*<img\\ssrc=\"([^\\s>]+)\"[^>]+>[\\s\\n]*</a>");
QString html = xml;
html.replace( QLatin1String("&amp;"), QLatin1String("&") );


int pos = 0; int i = 0;
while (((pos = rx.indexIn(html, pos)) != -1) && (i < fetch_no)) {

Works perfectly for me. Apparently the queryItemValue method of KUrl doesn't like the "&amp;" representation of ampersant characters.

your QRegExp did not work for me but using the one I borrowed from Amarok (see my earlier post) and the rest of your code the cover dimensions do display

Does the new version know about UTF8? I need a cd ripper that can encode the mp3 tags and file names using UTF8. Until now, Audex was not able to do so.

 same problem, audex doesn't recognize anything

 by janet on: Jan 29 2012
Score 50%

Same problem here with Debian Sid, Audex 0.74~b1-1 and a TSSTcorp CDDVDW SH-S223Q (dev/sr1, S-ATA) and a DVD-ROM BDV316C (dev/sr0, P-ATA). Audex doesn't recognize any CD in the drives, always shows something like no media and drive error. KAudiocreator works like a charm and kaffeine and k3b also recognize the CDs/drives.

Want Debian Sid with spices? Get aptosid at aptosid.com - it simply works :)

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.
