How to obtain an offset-corrected rip using cdda2wav?
Hello there,

I have been going through the cdda2wav man page, and noticed that the -offset command takes sectors as an argument (starts offset sectors behind […]), not samples (like all the other CD-ripping software I’ve encountered).

So, the question is—if I know that my drive’s reading offset is 6 samples, how do I convert that to sectors (is it even possible?) and pass it to cdda2wav in order to obtain a rip that is offset-corrected?

Thank you.

As there are 588 samples per sector it is probably useless for offset correction...?

Use cdparanoia -O I guess.

But I’m willing to use cdda2wav, not cdparanoia.

That’s what I was afraid of.

EDIT: What do you guys recommend for ripping on GNU/Linux, anyway? I figured that the cdrtools package would be perfect, until I ran across this issue with cdda2wav.

Rubyripper, which makes use of cdparanoia.
