Rippix is a fork of ripperX, a fast and easy to use CD ripper. While ripperX does a good job of ripping and encoding songs from a CD, it uses a rather outdated user interface. Rippix tries to fill this gap. This includes porting Rippix to GTK+ 3. Additionally, a lot of deprecated code will be rewritten and documentation will be added. The reason for a fork is that after some hacking on the ripperX code, it appeared that more modifications were necessary in order to port to GTK+ 3 conveniently than what could be appreciable by ripperX devs, like removing all the XPM images (including the logo) from the UI.
morituri is a CD ripper that aims for accuracy over speed. Its features are modeled to compare with Exact Audio Copy on Windows. It features support for MusicBrainz for metadata lookup, support for AccurateRip verification, support for cdparanoia, detection of sample read offset of drives, the ability to test and copy a rip, the ability to detect and rip Hidden Track One Audio, templates for file and directory naming, and tagging using GStreamer. Currently, it only supports lossless encoding and only has a command line client.
