    CD TEXT and PQ subcodes

    Hi, I find that Triumph is now known as Aurichitect (note spelling) Audio Software. Many searches there for "CD Tools" produces no results. Here's another strange thing about CD Text: I'm making an album which has various artists. Track one is by the Cap-Tans, and Track two is by some other group. So far, so good. Track three is by the Cap-Tans again, but the CD Text as seen in a CD player does not show the Cap-Tans for Track three - the window is blank (but the artist name does appear correctly in the TRACK Window of the Toast playlist used to master the CD)! This appears to be a bug in Toast, but I suppose it could be a failure in the CD player being used to view the CD Text? Hard to identify the source of this problem! Anyone else had this problem? I know there have been warnings about the reliability of viewing CD Text.

    CD TEXT and PQ subcodes

    I am entering data in Toast's windows for Track and Disc, which places my text and numbers in the CD's P and Q subcode areas. Does anyone know of a way to print out that data? The record company I'm working for needs to see that I have entered all the ISRC's correctly.

    I have no experience with Terminal, and it looks daunting. But I will check out Triumph CD Tools, and hopefully find a way to print out the PQ data. THANK YOU! Doug the old Rookie

    CD TEXT and PQ subcodes

    Report post Posted March 2 (edited) This is very useful information, which I have never seen before. So thank you, very much! Doug Pomeroy THIS JUST ADDED: In my Toast Titanium 15, the Disc Info tab does not show the ISRCs, as shown in your posting. Each file in a Toast Playlist has two windows which can be opened, Disc and Track, which is where one enters the ISRC and bar code (UPS/EAN) numbers. But my Titanium 15 does not allow the ISRCs to be seen from a recorded CD (my player is a Plextor PX755). And there seems to be no way to print out this data. Corel has confirmed this information. I have another question which I hope someone can answer. The Disc window mentioned above has a dialog where Start/Stop Offsets can be entered (as CD Sectors), as well a the Track One Start Offset (as CD Sectors). In the past I had others do this and I now need to do it and would like some suggestions about what to do. I have seen suggestions that 15 Frames (1/3 second) is typical for the Start Offset, and it appears the terms Frames and Sectors are now being used interchangeably (the Red Book never mentions Sectors) even if they are not the same thing! I have no close contact with any mastering engineers, and the Titanium 15 User's Guide does not mention Offsets at all. Any advice would be greatly appreciated! Doug, the Rookie

  6. I have six data files to burn to DVD. I have numbered them, one thru six. But when I put them in Toast Titanium 12 they appear in the window according to the SIZE of the files, NOT according to the NUMBER which appears ahead of the title, like this "1) Prelude". I have tried everything and can't overcome this problem. HELP!

    Data Files Appear According To Size - How Can I Change This?

    Hi, and thanks. It never occurred to me to click on the heading NAME, but that arranges the titles the way I want them to appear on the DVD! Maybe because I have a Mac? (Yes, I'm making a DVD of DATA files - recorded at 24 bits and 96 kHz.) MANY THANKS! I figured it had to be something simple!!!

    Data Files Appear According To Size - How Can I Change This?

    To clarify: I did not use a parenthesis. I listed the titles as follows 1) Prelude, 2) Intermezzo, 3) Toccata and so on. But I see that Toast rearranges the sequence based on the size of the files! If I click on the word size, the titles will be listed in ascending size or descending size. This fact is never mentioned anywhere that I can find! Does this mean there is no way to have the files listed in the order in which they should go (e.g., the movements of a sonata should appear in a specific order)? By the way, the first time I put the files in Toast, I did so without using numbers at all - I added the numbers hoping that would force them to appear in numerical order.

    many thanks.

    Version 11/version 12

    I assume the same answer applies to those who are upgrading from titanium 10 to titanium 12.

    I have never used the Convert window. I converted the files to 16/44.1 using iZotope's batch processor. After the conversion, the files play at the proper level. I tried to use the Feedback link (https://selfserve.roxio.com/feedback/index.aspx?l=en), but I get a message saying the resource can't be found, and the following: I wonder why. Server Error in '/' Application.

    tsantee - The answer is that if I put a 24 bit, 96 kHz file in the Audio CD window, it plays about 6 to 10 dB louder than it should, but it appears that it does get automatically converted from 24/96 to 16/44.1. Did you know this?

    Hi, Thanks for your reply. No, I was not normalizing. Checking the custom crossfade window shows no clipping. Meanwhile, I have found the problem - it was my error.

    Isn't there any way to raise or lower the level of ALL the tracks? I find all my tracks are playing back too loud, I'd say at least 6 dB too loud! Hasn't anyone else noticed this? It is a pain to have to go in and set the gain of each track to minus 6!
