Sound Juicer is an application front-end to the Cdparanoia CD ripping library. It allows the user to extract audio from compact discs and convert it into audio files that a personal computer or digital audio player can understand and play. It supports ripping to any audio codec supported by a GStreamer plugin, such as mp3 (via LAME), Ogg Vorbis, FLAC and uncompressed PCM formats.
Sound Juicer is designed to be easy to use and to work with little user intervention. For example, if your computer is connected to the Internet, it will automatically attempt to retrieve track information from the freely-available MusicBrainz service. Sound Juicer is free and open source software and an official part of the GNOME desktop environment starting with version 2.10.
Versions after 2.12 implement CD playing capability.
