I would like to know the same thing.

I note that Toast 8 has inherited some of the bugs of Jam 6, such as naming tracks incorrectly when opening disk images.

We have been using Jam and Toast for years and up until recently we've been very happy with these products. However, we are now becoming very frustrated with Jam... we are experiencing a lot of digital distortion and corrupted Jam "sessions". There hasn't been an update for ages and we are starting to wonder if it will ever be updated.
One issue is that we have many Jam sessions (Jam documents) that we are dependent on being able to open. These are reels and presentations that we have made in Jam in the past and saved. We need to be able to open these sessions now and in the future.
Does Toast 8 open Jam sessions? Is it worth updating to Toast 8? I already saw the "pro feature" thread so I know some pro features are disabled in Toast 8, but the most important thing for us is being able to open old Jam sessions (docs).

I'd sure like to see an update that fixed some bugs, including those I've reported, but I expect that there will not be one.
Roxio, can we get some sort of official word?

I would really like a program like Wave Burner Pro. It did everything. You could put plug-ins on tracks or the whole mix, insert IDs and indexes anywhere you wanted, you could print the session data with the PQ info and it had a waveform based interface which was really cool and easy to use. Sadly, it died when OS X came along. I would love to see Jam come back with a feature set like Wave Burner Pro had.

I'm still using a stand-alone version of WaveBurner Pro in OS 9 on my dual-boot Cube.

Cumbersome workaround (kind of- sill requires JAM to do this but of some it may be worth archiving your JAM sessions this way): Open your JAM sessions and Save As Disc Image. You can open the disc image in Toast and it will have pause, ISRC, CD-Text and UPC subchannels embedded and viewable in Toast 8.
Not that useful for me as I have MANY HUNDREDS of sessions archived in the JAM playlist format, but still good to know.

The problems Sir Cecil is having with Toast 9 is not happening on my Macbook Pro running 10.5.2. The safest approach is to buy Toast 9 as a download from Roxio because they have a refund policy if users are unsatisfied and want to delete the software within a certain number of days.
