Grip is a free Compact Disc player and CD ripper within the GNOME project.

The software is rather similar to Audiograbber on Windows - without sound card capture feature; it is fast, light, easy to compile and it does well what it is intended to do.[citation needed]

Grip uses a selection of encoders, including cdparanoia. The current official GNOME ripper is Sound Juicer.

The original author, Mike Oliphant, originally registered Grip as a project at the SourceForge.net free and open-source software website on March 17, 2000, and made pre-compiled binaries for RPM Linux distributions available. However, by mid-2005 development had stalled, and while the software was still very much usable, in effect it languished without a maintainer. In late 2016 a new maintainer, Johnny Solbu, stepped up by forking the project into "Grip 2" based on version 3.3.1 of the original. In april 2017 he gained access to the original project page and stated on the forked project page his intention on moving development back to the old project,[1] and released v3.3.5. As of version 3.3.5, no binaries were made available yet.
