Arson is a KDE frontend to various CD burning and ripping tools. It was originally written to burn audio CDs, as there were no other frontends that used cdrdao (in disk at once mode), that could decode various encoded audio formats (mp3, ogg), and that displayed an accurate track length as the playlist was created. Arson was later expanded to include full progress display for all lengthy operations, audio CD burning, normalization of tracks before burning to even out volumes, data CD burning, CdIndex support (a free CDDB-like service), CD-to-CD copying (direct or with an intermediate file), and audio CD ripping/encoding (ripping tracks from a CD to files), and encoding to WAV, MP3, and Ogg Vorbis formats is supported. Data CD burning and [S]VCD image creation and burning are supported.
