Full description Cdparanoia is a Compact Disc Digital AudioCdparanoia is a Compact Disc Digital Audio (CDDA) extraction tool, commonly known as a 'ripper'. It is built on top of the Paranoia library (included in the cdparanoia source distribution). The cdparanoia package reads audio from the CDROM directly as data, with no analog step between, and writes the data to a file or pipe in WAV, AIFC or raw 16 bit linear PCM. 'cdparanoia' contains few-to-no 'extra' features; it concentrates on the ripping process and knowing as much as possible about the hardware performing it. Cdparanoia will read correct audio data from inexpensive drives prone to misalignment, frame jitter and loss of streaming during atomic reads, and can read and repair data from damaged CDs. It has no compile time configuration, and will autodetect the CDROM, its type, its interface and other aspects of the ripping process at runtime.aspects of the ripping process at runtime.
