From an audio-cd into Ardour

If Ardour can import audio directly from an Audio CD, I'd love to know how,
(because I have not seen such a feature in Ardour yet).

When extracting audio from an Audio CD, I like to use *Sound Juicer*.
It is available in the Ubuntu Software Center, calling it *Audio CD

I prefer to store high quality audio files in the lossless FLAC format,
which Sound Juicer supports.
Free Lossless Audio Codec (FLAC) takes up much less space than the original
WAVE file, but is lossless, (so it is just as good as the original WAVE
Ardour 2.8.6 supports both IMPORT and EXPORT of FLAC files, so then you're
all set to use your newly created FLAC files in Ardour.

Hope that helps!
