mktoc ~ Generate cdrdao TOC Files


Mktoc simplifies the steps needed to create audio CD TOC files for the cdrdao CD burning program. For users familiar with EAC or CdrWin, TOC files are synonymous with CUE sheets. The primary goal of mktoc is to create TOC files using a previously generated CUE sheet.

Features:

  • Create a TOC file from a list of WAV files.
  • Convert an ExactAudioCopy (EAC) CUE file to the TOC format that is usable by cdrdao.
  • Multi-session aware CUE parsing, necessary for making CDDB and AccurateRip matchable discs.
  • Non-compliant CUE sheet support.
  • Support for various pregap methods.
  • Can create offset corrected WAV files for true ‘bit-for-bit’ accurate copies.
  • Fuzzy file name logic can correct common file name spelling variations.
  • Workaround known TOC file parsing bugs in cdrdao.

Cdrdao ~ Disk-At-Once Recording


Cdrdao records audio or data CD-Rs in disk-at-once (DAO) mode based on a textual description of the CD contents.

Advantages of Disk-At-Once (DAO) Recording:

Recording in disk-at-once mode writes the complete disc, i.e. lead-in, one or more tracks and lead-out, in a single step. The commonly used track-at-once (TAO) mode writes each track independently which requires link blocks between two tracks. Older CD-recorder models forced a two second pause (pre-gap) between two tracks whereas newer models allow adjusting of the pause length in TAO mode reducing the number of link blocks to a minimal amount. However, with TAO it is generally not possible to define the data that is written in pre-gaps. But exactly this feature makes audio CD recording interesting, e.g. by creating hidden bonus tracks or track intros in pre-gaps like it is common habit on commercial CDs. Finally, DAO recording is the only way to write data to the unused R-W sub-channels for e.g.  CD-G or CD-TEXT.

Features:

  • Full control over length and contents of pre-gaps (pause areas between tracks). Pre-gaps may be completely omitted, e.g. for dividing live recordings into tracks.
  • Control over sub-channel data like:
    • catalog number
    • copy, pre-emphasis, 2-/4-channel flags
    • ISRC code
    • index marks
  • Support for exact audio, data and mixed mode CD copying.
  • Support for R-W sub-channel writing.
  • Tracks may be composed of different audio files supporting non destructive cut.
  • Accepts WAVE and raw audio files.
  • CD-TEXT reading and writing with drives that support it.
  • CDDB access to automatically create CD-TEXT data.
  • Support for on-the-fly copying.

ANMP ~ Another Nameless Music Player


ANMP aims to be a versatile but lightweight audio player, just as the other hundred thousands out there. It is written in C++11. As being only a frontend, ANMP itself doesn’t know anything about audio formats and how to decode them. That’s why it uses 3rd party libraries to decode them. By using VgmStream, GameMusicEmu, LazyUSF and supporting looped songs natively, ANMP is esp. suited to play various audio formats from video games. Moreover it supports Looped Midi Tracks.

Main Features:

  • muting multichannel audio files
  • gapless playback (for most streamed audio formats)
  • arbitrary (forward) looping of songs (i.e. even nested loops)
  • synthesizing MIDI files using fluidsynth
  • multi-channel audio rendering
  • overlapping notes do not kill each other
  • unrolling looped MIDI tracks
  • volume response compatible to N64’s software synth
  • supports an IIR lowpass filter compatible to Rareware‘s N64 games (Conkers Bad Fur Day, Jet Force Gemini)
  • support for cue sheets
  • support for audio normalization based on EBU R 128
  • exposes basic commands via D-Bus

Flacon ~ Unix Audio File Encoder


Flacon extracts individual tracks from one big audio file containing the entire album of music and saves them as separate audio files.

To do this, it uses information from the appropriate CUE file. Besides, Flacon makes it possible to conveniently revise or specify tags both for all tracks at once or for each tag separately.

  • Supported input formats: WAV, FLAC, APE, WavPack, True Audio (TTA).
  • Supported out formats: FLAC, WAV, WavPack, AAC, OGG or MP3.
  • ReplayGain analysis (album-gain and track-gain modes).
  • Multi-threaded conversion process.
  • Automatic character set detection for CUE files.
  • Generation of the pertrack CUE file in the output dir.
