RipIT is a command line program for ripping, encoding, and tagging MP3s that needs no user intervention. It is a wrapper for dagrab, cdparanoia, cdda2wav, LAME, Ogg Vorbis, Flac, Faac, Musepack, Wavpack, mp4als and ffmpeg. It supports the retrieval and submission of CDDB and MusicBrainz entries and cover art.

Contrary to the release notes published by freshmeat ripit does not provide coverart. Images of covers must be present (i.e. have a path) to be added to the tags using options coverart and coverpath. Option precmd might be useful to start other scripts for providing coverart.
Release Notes: This release adds options to use Musepack and ffmpeg (e.g. for apple lossless) and provides a cover to add cover art to the tags. Various artist styles can be detected and tags will be written accordingly. To manipulate the track counter in file names, use the option trackoffset. Cue sheets can be written and detection of ISRCs for submission to Musicbrainz is supported.
Release Notes: A bug concerning overly long file names in conjunction with normalize was fixed. Another bug when using relative paths for the output directory was fixed.
Release Notes: This version solves a somehow persistent bug in which encoder qualities were not read out from the configuration file. Furthermore, the configuration file should not be overwritten during installation.
Release Notes: Ghost songs can now get their names if the track names contain a slash separating the track and the ghost song. Some minor bugs in cd.toc generation were fixed.
Release Notes: RipIT now supports the use of musicbrainz for tagging the files and formats like Musepack and mp4als. Options were added for managing the process in cases where no DB entry is found or discs are already ripped. Only spans of tracks may be ripped and when done, a command may be executed. With the --book option, all tracks are ripped into one m4b file and a chapter mark file is created. In addition to a cd.toc file, an inf file can be created for burning sound files with CD-Text.
