Hi all
a few stats of my system on rip and encode times
source  audio cd 11 tracks duration 60.1 mins

Arson   this got in a mess and was aborted
K3b rip several hours and up to 60% cpu time (peaks)
Xripper  rip and encode encode to mp3 30mins 12% cpu time (peaks)
Grip     rip and encode to ogg  15 mins (12%cpu time (peaks)

source drive genuine scsi

I'm trying to find the mp3 encoder for grip,
The one observation I can make is that the ripping process on grip is
about 8 mins , its the encoding that takes the time, the same with
With the resource on this machine 1.2 GHz duron and 750Mb of ram surely
it should be quicker ?? The one thing I do like with Grip is the construction of a dir with the
Artist and subdir for the album name, and track names are maintained..



In contrib/, there is abcde. By default, with a CD in /dev/cdrom, when you type abcde, there are a couple of interactive questions then abcde will rip the CD, encoding to ogg in a subdirectory of the artist's name with track names. Encoding runs parallel with ripping. A configuration file, /etc/abcde.conf, can be copied to $HOME for per-user preferences and there is an option to take advantage of smp machines. On my 1700+ Athlon, it took about 24 minutes for 9 tracks/44 minutes of music.
