So now I have switched over to Ubuntu I have to redo lots of things with new applications. Here is my grip configuration for ripping music.
Rip file format:
~/mp3/%A/%d/%n.wav (default I think)
Encoder command line:
-V2 --vbr-new -q0 --lowpass 19.7 --add-id3v2 --pad-id3v2 --ta "%a" --tt "%n" --tl "%d" --ty "%y" --tn "%t" %w %m
I may not totally understand what I am doing here. But the sound quality is great. Variable bitrate files are created. id3v2 tags are in the encoding string. Not sure if I really need these.
Encoder file format:
Files are in the format: tracknumber_songname. The rest of the info is only in the directory structure and the tags. This is consistent with the structure for Rip File Format so there are no redundant directories left over after the rip.
