    For CDs, I strongly recommend a ripper that can verify your rip against the AccurateRip database. Otherwise you can’t be certain your rip is correct. whipper and morituri (from where it forked) are candidates. The latter is packaged.

    Others here mentioned carykh's jumpcutter. I tried to get it to install but couldn't, then discovered it hasn't been updated in a long time.

    There's even an issue with links to alternatives and forks:

    I tried out Auto-editor [1] and it works great for what I needed! Although for "removing" silence, I prefer to increase play speed instead of jump cutting.
