Convert Compact Disc Digital Audio (CDDA) to the WAV format. This process is often called “ripping” a CD-ROM, and is generally performed before using an encoder to convert the file to a compressed music format such as OGG or MP3. By default, cdda2wav reads data from the /dev/cdrom device and outputs one WAV file per track.
Some of the following options use sectors as a unit of measurement. Each sector of data on a CD represents approximately 1/75 second of play time.
Specify the device. The device must work with the -i (--interface) settings.
Specify a different drive for ioctl purposes.
Specify the type of interface. For Linux systems, the most appropriate value is usually cooked_ioctl.
Record in stereo. Use -m (--mono) to record in mono.
Set recording quality (and amount of hard disk usage) to maximum.
Set the quality of samples to n bits per sample per channel. Possible values are 8, 12, and 16.
Set the sample rate in samples per second. To get a list of possible values, use the -R option.
Output a list of possible sample rates and dividers. This option is typically used alone.
Use n sectors of overlap for jitter correction.
Read n sectors in each request.
Set start track and, optionally, end track. ...
