Cd Spin Doctor?

Question

I've been using Titanium 8 (and 11) and they came with Spin Doctor.

 

I just upgraded to Titanium 16 and there's no Spin Doctor. :-(

 

I need to add tracks to long aiff files and then send them to Toast for burning. This was easy to do with Spin Doctor.

 

Is there a way to do this in Toast 16? If so, how? If not, is there another program I can use to add the track marks and then send to Toast?

 

Thanks,
Stuart

The last useable SpinDoctor was CD SpinDoctor 6.1.2 bundled with Toast 10, according to user tsantee. He wasn’t too keen on the version that shipped with Toast 11. (But running that old application may also restrict the version of the OS (10.7 Lion).)

I’m not that much into audio recordings to properly suggest alternatives, unfortunately. Maybe Audacity?

Toast 16 includes an “Toast Audio Assistant” [PDF User Guide] for recording audio from various devices. It will open an AIFF file, divide it in tracks (auto or manually) and send it to Toast (per track, not all tracks at once :(, although they will be added in order to the same project). Perhaps that works for you?

Toast 16 allows to set the gap to "0 sec", and burning DAO (burner must support that too, perhaps detailed as SAO), but you’ll have to test for a smooth transition (audible ‘clicks’ may ruin the experience). But I suppose you know this last bit already, as that hasn’t changed for many versions of Toast.

Thanks for your help!

 

I'm not able to find how I can import an AIFF file into the Toast Audio Assistant. I understood you to say that it was possible. If so, can you please describe how?

 

Thanks so much!

It is not in the main window, but in the menu:

Menu > File > Open > select an AIFF file > A new window pops up, in which to create/select tracks.

In setting the starting the end points, in CD Spin Doctor, I could use the Info Window to manually type in the start and end times. This was handy because I was adding a new track every 5 minutes.

 

With the new Toast Audio Assistant, I don't seem able to type in the start and end points.

 

Do you know if it's possible?

 

Thanks,

Stuart

The greyed out timers with up/down buttons seem to indicate that they once were intended to be fields to be edited by users. Unfortunately, they are disabled as editable fields. There is a timeline at the top (min:sec), and moving the sliders shows seconds (5 mins = 300 sec). Not very precise, but some guidance at least.

 

For more precise segmenting, you may have to look at other programs (Audacity with a labels file; or ffmpeg in Terminal (fastest); both tested).
