Rip and encode CDs with one command


Jack has been developed with one main goal: making OGGs (or MP3s) without having to worry. There is nearly no way that an incomplete rip goes unnoticed, e.g. jack compares WAV and OGG file sizes when continuing from a previous run. Jack also checks your HD space before doing anything (even keeps some MB free).

Jack is different from other such tools in a number of ways:
 - it supports different rippers and encoders
 - it is very configurable
 - it doesn't need X
 - it can "rip" virtual CD images like the ones created by cdrdao
 - when using cdparanoia, cdparanoia's status information is displayed
   and archived for all tracks, so you can see if something went wrong
 - it uses sophisticated disk space management, i.e. it schedules its
   ripping/encoding processes depending on available space.
 - freedb query, file renaming and id3/ogg-tagging
 - it can resume work after it has been interrupted. If all tracks have
   been ripped, it doesn't even need the CD anymore, even if you want
   to do a freedb query.
 - it can do a freedb query based on OGGs alone, like if you don't
   remember from which CD those OGGs came from.
 - freedb submissions
