Description:

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:

Changelog 0.78 (Borken release)
* Fixed google cover search
* Embed cover in FLAC files
* Minor bugfixes, code modifications and typo fixes...

 My first experiences

 
 by fri on: Jan 17 2009
 
Score 50%

I was surprised when using Audex for the first time. I understood that my experiences with for example Sound juicer or KAudio Creator were a little different. But then it's on me to examine possibilities of Settings.
I would like to describe my feelings:
I fullfilled "artist" and "title-name of album" and "year". I was used to have in result the folders named exactly so, with structure of course "author, then name of album in subfolder, and then audio files (usually unnamed, I wasn't using the freedb or so and gave the informations later - manualy or with help of internet" In Audex I saw that the name of subfolder with *.ogg was fullfilled with all these together, even the year. I have to look for the way how to set it in Settings.
The way these programmes are working may differ (ripping then encoding, or ripping and encoding simultaneously - in case of Audex). I wasn't thinking about it before.
In Sound juicer, that I was using before the change to any *.oga format (Amarok wasn't able to show the length of duration of the audio files in this format, so I was surprised and little discussed with this unstoppable progres) led me to look for the other solution.
I suppose that the interface could and should change, develop, improve in future. It's the thing of opinions, suggestions and possibilities. I can't to stop comparing it with simplicity of Sound juicer yet - there are instantly two places to write the "author" and "name of album" and "year". Perhaps by the time. But Sound juicer was "very simply" in possibilities of setting of quality of encoding too. But the values were quite good for me. I supposed that it's quite good that I needn't to set them manualy exactly, to thing which value is better, when I only demand good quality, better than 64, 80, 128 kbps (when the hard drive - hard disk - is huge enough for me to use pretty good quality of sound - 168 kbps in this case). It's good for me, that I can set the folder, where I want to save the encoded files. But there is no option? to set even bigger data stream (kbps) in case of extra excellent music. Yes, I know, that these formats are used to diminuish the amount of MB on hard drives used for the music.
I noted that Audex doesn't remember the quality I used the last time. The work with tags, for example "autofill the artists" or even manualy is secret for me now.
The details of ripping and encoding display some weird characters - used in czech language: displayed incorrectly.

 Looking good so far

Looking for a replacement to kaudiocreator, so thought I'd give this a try.

It's looking good, but seems to have issues (for me at least!). The base path seems to be getting ignored, and in spite of me changing it, it still goes in my home directory. Also, the track number is not getting prefixed with a 0 when below 10 (I tried the length="2" fillchar="0") as referenced in a previous comment, with no luck. It also seems to ignore the auto CDDB lookup (or I was being impatient ;-) ).

Aside from these little niggles, good work and I hope they get sorted

 Feature request

This is an awesome program. I'd _love_ to see an option for Audex to add a leading '0' to track numbers less than 10, i.e. 08, 09, 10...it is much less of a pain than adding them later :) Is this possible?

hi!

thank you!

this should already work. see the hint on the track#-button in audex mask editor.

however some people reported, that this is broken in audex 0.62. i will check while i am working on audex 0.70, which should be released next week.

Ok, I am using 0.62 and am n00bish, so it took me a minute to figure this out and write up some bugs I observed. If you are using the $trackno variable, to make it put a leading 0 before track numbers < 9 you have to change it to

${trackno length="2"}

So it looks like that is working fine for me, at least.

Also, when you have one track selected (incidentally or otherwise) in the track list and click "Extract CDDA" it will only extract that single track, which can be very unexpected. I would suggest adding an explicit "rip single track" option somewhere to avoid confusion, but ultimately that is your decision.

For me it also seems to be ignoring the destination directory for written files and puts them in ~/ (I am telling Audex /home/me/Desktop)

Finally, in the profile Mask settings, if you specify a formatted directory for the converted files (i.e. as "$artist - $title/$trackno etc...") it seems to accidentally add the directory once recursively so that you end up with a hierarchy not only containing

$artist - $title/audio-files...

but also an empty folder with the same formatted name:

$artist - $title/$artist - $title/

Hope this helps... :)

 A small problem

The problem I am having is that it does not read my faac that I already have installed. jRipper and others see it but this application does not. I would love to use this. I guess I could add it but it would be helpful if it found it by itself.

I forgot to mention that I am using OpenSUSE 11.1 and installed the program using one of their repositories. In the mean time I am using kaudiocreator. I had to add the faac part but it is working. jripper adds " around the songs so decided not to use this. Also atunes recognized the faac encoder but was marking every thing the year it was encoded and not the year the music actually came out. I would love to try audex but until I can find out how to use faac I won't be using it. The one's that did show up automatically was ogg, wave, flac, and mp3.

hi,

that's strange. maybe in opensuse is a different version of flac as in the tested distributions.
please go to a console and type
flac -v
post the output please.
i will take a closer look to this in a few days and test audex with recent version of opensuse.

It is faac that I have that is not recognized. I have the output below. It would be nice but not needed as I could add this myself to also add support for neroaacenc for those that want to use this.

I uninstalled audex and also faac and reinstalled it but even after this is does not recognize the faac. It only recognized the top 4. I see that my add was still there but I did not add it properly so it does not work. I would hope that the uninstall would have removed this but I know files are always left behind. Below is what I added. I did not add all this but it is how your program reads it. It is from the audexrc file.

I just wanted to let you know that I have changed the faac command line to match that of kaudiocreator and also one's I found on the web. I also used the assistant that you have that I can pick what I want to show up and each time it shows it could not encode the file and that the user canceled it which I never do. I have tried the ogg format and that works great but since I want to put this music on my iPod and do not want to use rockbox this does not help me. I do like the program as it is fast and does a great job.

I installed the kubuntu alpha last night and audex recognizes the faac file. Now I just want to be able to use nero but I will have to play around with this. I appreciate what your program does.

 Ripping with FLAC

 
 by skiron on: Feb 14 2009
 
Score 50%

Great app ! Thanks !

Just one little fix is to be made with the default FLAC command line, which is:
flac -T=Artist="$tartist" -T=Title="$ttitle" -T=Album="$title" -T=Date="$date" -T=Tracknumber="$trackno" -T=Genre="$genre" -o $o $i

The tags from the resulting files are unreadable. It should be replaced with:
flac -T ARTIST="$tartist" -T TITLE="$ttitle" -T ALBUM="$title" -T DATE="$date" -T TRACKNUMBER="$trackno" -T GENRE="$genre" -S 10s -o $o $i
(the "-S 10s" option is to force the creation of a seektable to fastforward/backward in the file with Amarok, I know that it is already the default value, but in my case (Kubuntu 8.10) it is needed)

Hi

In 0.70b1 it doesn't seem to be possible to even change this behaviour anymore. Or have I missed something. I have to do the flac riping with 0.62.

Yes you're right! I've just tested version 0.70b1 (I like the improvements by the way) and the tags are still unreadable when ripped to FLAC!!!

I've check the ripped file and the problem is still the same as I pointed out in my previous post!!!

But it's not possible anymore to change the command line used to encode to flac, so my trick can't solve the problem anymore.

marcomaniac can you please take my comment into account?!? You just have to correct the command line, as I gave it in my previous post!!

(note that the "-S 10s" option doesn't seem usefull anymore, at least in the test I ran)

Do you like or dislike Ubuntu Unity?
 Yes, unity is alien technology!
 It is less confusing than Gnome 3 default, shell.
 Granny thinks it is much more usable than Gnome 2
 Canonical is embarrasing itself with this split project
 Gnome 3 default shell is much better
 I dislike Unity, Gnome 3 default shell is alien technology!
 None of the above, I like the 2Gb for free and Apple alike behavior. Will post a comment instead
