Can't Add Silence To End Of Audio Tracks

Question

In Toast Titanium 8, I can't seem to add silence to the END of audio tracks on an Audio CD. I need to do this for some clients who don't want a lengthy silence at the end of some tracks, but still want the next track to start right away when that track number is pressed on the player. I use to be able to do this with Toast 7, but I can't with Toast 8. What can I do to make Toast let the tracks play to their conclusion and not cut off the silence at the end?

HELP!

Isn't that what the pause does? The default is a 2-second pause between tracks. When a track is selected it starts immediate playback so the pause has no effect until the track finishes playing. The pause does not add silence to the track itself, it just adds a break between tracks. If you want to add silence at the end of a track you'll need to do that with an audio editing application because Toast can only shorten, not lengthen, a track.

Maybe I didn't explain myself well. I DID add about 12 seconds to the end of the tracks using an editing app. But, believe it or not, Toast 8 ignores this added silence and just goes right into the next track. Yes, I can add up to 8" I think to the START of a track, but there is a good reason for adding it to the end instead. These are audio cues for a performance. To eliminate the possibility of the operator forgetting to stop a track in time, they ask me to add this silence. Then when the operator cues up the next track, it starts immediately. If I put the pause before the track, it would be impossible to cue it properly.

While waiting to hear from Roxio about this, I went ahead and reinstalled Toast7 and it does what I need it to fine. I prefer 8, but in this case 7 will do the trick. Just thought it was odd why this is happening and if maybe I have something set incorrectly.

 

Thanks.

Roxio made big changes to the audio CD features in Toast 8 when they transferred over a lot of the functions from Jam. Maybe that is why it is behaving differently from Toast 7. It is very odd that Toast would cut off the silence at the end of a track. Glad you resolved the issue by going back to Toast 7.

Well, as I expected in today's age, NO answer from Roxio other than I'm using a "legacy" product and I should upgrade to the NEW Toast! In the meantime, I'll GO BACK to an earlier "Legacy-er" version when I need to add silence to the end of a track.
