Yes there is. So much for the "user-friendlyness" of GUI apps. :-)

I'll attach a simple shell script that has served me well over
the years. I do admit that it seems to be overcomplicated because
of multiple conversions. I've placed the file in my ~/bin and
gave it +x permissions. Use it in the directory you are currently
located at. It requires the presence of the following programs:
ogg123, madplay, sox, as well as burncd, cdrecord or cdrdao for
the burning (and atapicam for the last two).

Just try it, it solves your problem. :-)
