CD ripping

Not sure what I'll use yet. I just started to convert my CD's for my Squeezebox Duet


id3v2 (cli command) can be used to list and edit the mp3 tags

id3v2 -l aaa.mp3    # list all tags
id3v2 -a "Artist Name" *.mp3
id3v2 -A "Album Name" *.mp3

for i in sibelius_cd3/*.mp3; do id3v2 -A 'Symphony 4&5' "$i"; done

Set track name and nr from file (03_Blah_bla_bla.mp3)

#!/usr/bin/env ruby
ARGV.each { |file|
  nr, title = file.split('_', 2)
  title.gsub!('_',' ')
  cmd =  "id3v2 -T #{nr} -t '#{title}' #{file}"
  print cmd, "\n"


To investigate...
