Question

I would like to adjust audio levels when creating a playlist in Audio CD. The docs lists this as a feature then refers to the heading "Creating Crossfade" which does not have any info on that. Thanks!

Place a checkmark next to "Show advanced audio mastering settings" in the Audio tab of Toast Preferences. You then can adjust volume using the Gain setting. You also can select one or more tracks and choose Normalize from the Toast Disc menu.

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!

How did the gain increase? Toast doesn't change the gain on the source audio unless normalize is chosen or the gain controls are adjusted. Are you saying that choosing normalize sets the gain too high? In that case don't use it. Otherwise, if they are too loud then they were too loud before the tracks were added to Toast. If your experience is different then please tell me more about your source and the steps you used with Toast.

 

By the way, if you want to see a wave form of the audio in Toast choose the custom crossfade. You can adjust the amount of the audio track that appears in the crossfade window. This isn't ideal compared with using an audio editing app but can show you if there is any clipping. Normalize shouldn't cause any clipping, though.

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.

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?

No, I wasn't aware of that. Hmmm. What happens if you put those in the Convert window and convert them first to 16/44.1? I'm wondering if doing that as an individual step could make a difference.

 

You can inform Roxio of this issue by using the Feedback link in the Toast Help menu.

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.

The feedback link probably got broken during Roxio's transfer of ownership to Corel. So now we can't give them feedback that their feedback is broken. They are working on a Toast 11.1 update so maybe somebody there will test that link and discover it is broken.
