cdparanoia

Synopsis

    cdparanoia [options] span [outfile]

Similar to cdda2wav, cdparanoia reads Compact Disc audio files as WAV, AIFF, AIFF-C, or raw format files. It uses additional data-verification and sound-improvement algorithms to make the process more reliable, and is used by a number of graphical recording programs as a backend.

Options

-a, --output-aifc

Output in AIFF-C format.

-B, --batch

Split the output into multiple files on track boundaries like cdda2wav. Filenames are prefixed with track#.

-c, --force-cdrom-little-endian

Force cdparanoia to treat the drive as a little-endian device.

-C, --force-cdrom-big-endian

Force cdparanoia to treat the drive as a big-endian device.

-ddevicename, --force-cdrom-devicedevicename

Specify a device name to use instead of the first readable CD-ROM available.

-e, --stderr-progress

Send all progress messages to standard error instead of standard output; used by wrapper scripts.

-f, --output-aiff

Output in AIFF format.

-gdevice, --force-generic-devicedevice

Use with -g to set the generic device separately from that of the CD-ROM device. Useful only on nonstandard SCSI setups.

-h, --help

Display options and syntax.

-ncount, --force-default-sectorscount

Do atomic reads of count sectors per read. Not generally useful.

-Ocount, --sample-offsetcount

Shift sample positions by the given count. This shifts track boundaries for the whole disc. May cause read errors or even lockups on buggy hardware.

-p, --output-raw

Output headerless raw data.

-q, --quiet

Quiet mode. ...
