Sound Juicer is a GTK+-based graphical front-end to (or GUI for) 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 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. Versions after 2.12 implement CD playing capability.Last versions produce lossy formats with default gstreamer settings only (VBR 128kb/s only for mp3), although power users can fix it as described in (russian language resource!)

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 subject to the terms of the GNU General Public License (GPL). Starting with version 2.10 it is an official part of the GNOME desktop environment.
