linux - burn audio cd write offset corrected
cdrecord does not seems to support this feature. therefore, i am curious to know, if there exists a native linux solution for burning audio cds with write offset correction?

AFAIK, cdparanoia can do accurate rips with write offset. Any libparanoia-based software, for example Rubyripper.
Cdparanoia is said to be relatively slow because EAC uses C2 error detection by default while cdparanoia is using re-reading, but maybe it can be configured to use C2.

thank you for taking time to answer.

please notice, this is about accurately burning cds with the drive's corresponding write offset and not the read offset (for doing rips).

Hello, I am sorry if my reply comes late but, well ... There are posts in this forum concerning your problem (https://hydrogenaud.io/index.php/topic,61983.0.html). No writing program on gnu-linux appears to have native support for wrtite-offset, so you have to prepare the wav files using mktoc (https://github.com/cmcginty/mktoc).
Mktoc adds samples to the audio tracks correcting the write offset. You can then use cdrecord or cdrskin or cdrdao to burn the audio-cd.
I hope it helps.

yes, i somehow missed this thread. i will have a closer look at mktoc, thanks a lot.

so generally speaking, there is no linux burning tool supporting built in write offset correction? i wonder if including such a routine (in cdrecord f.ex.) would have been a hard task to do after all?

for correcting cues/wavs with mktoc afterwards, you need to know your drives write offset. are you aware of a native tool which is avaiable for this task?
