Complete Toast 11.2 Standard Package On Roxio Software Update Page

Question

Roxio has posted the complete Toast 11 standard package containing Toast 11.2 (3175).

 

Disc Cover 3 RE 3.0.10 This is the current version. There also is a $19.95 discounted upgrade to the full version.

DiscCatalogMaker RE 5.6.2. A free update to RE 5.6.6 is available here. A newer retail version is available here for a Toast-user discounted $19.95).

Get Backup 2 RE 2.4.4. Get Backup 2.5.3 is freeware available here. The Pro version is available at a Toast-user discounted $9.95.

Mac2TiVo 1.2.0. I have a version 1.2.1 from somewhere.

Spin Doctor 1.0. This version is unusable. There is version 1.0.1 that I think one gets from an automatic update within the launched app. That version is usable in some ways but not after OS 10.6.x.

TiVo Transfer 2.1.0. This is the current version but does not work with the TiVo Roamio series.

Toast 11.2 (3175). Here are the release notes.

 

Before running this installer I suggest renaming your existing Toast 11 Titanium folder by adding (old) at the end of its name. This way the new installer won't overwrite the older one. This is just in case there is something about the older version of Toast that works better than the newer version.

...
  • Hundreds of changes and fixes implemented as a part of this effort

It would be nice if these were documented somewhere accessible, if there's too much to put in the release notes.

"Fixes" - as in:

 

- "Can no longer fast-forward or rewind when previewing audio tracks when clicking and holding on the Previous and Next buttons, only skip forward or back through the playlist."

- "STILL cannot rewind thought the first track in a playlist or fast-forward through the last audio track because the Previous and Next buttons are grayed out."

- "Listening to audio tracks before burning them to disc will cause the app to crash and make you to repeatedly force-quit and relaunch it."

 

Hell, I haven't even tried to burn a data disc or anything involving video! I probably won't either - I don't have that much aspirin on hand!

 

You guys really make me miss Jam 2.5.

Since the latest update, I am unable to use Toast Titanium 11 completely. The transition has put me in a hold pattern and in the meantime I can just SIT AND STEAM until they get some technical support in place.

"Spin Doctor 1.0. This version is unusable. There is version 1.0.1 that I think one gets from an automatic update within the launched app. That version is usable in some ways."

 

I'd like a definition as to what "some ways" means. I updated to 1.0.1 on a mb pro with the latest everything.

 

First: it imported an .aiff file fine. It even played it. Nice. Then I started adding tracks. I had to leave so I wanted to save and quit. I saved in the native file format as prompted....then, what? No File!

 

I tried the same process again thinking I'd just saved to some other location....once again in native format, it didn't save! No file! One more time I selected a couple of tracks then saved as an .aiff file and it did save, thankfully.....but the tracks were gone when I re-opened the file!

 

When the tracks I'd selected were playing the placement arrow didn't move - the song played but the line stayed in the same spot - and I couldn't pause or stop the music. I had to either let it play on and on or force quit, which I eventually did.

 

Then my OS unexpectedly quit (I've had the laptop for only two weeks!).

 

Then my iTunes library and directory became locked for no reason.

 

A restart of all my devices corrected my iTunes issue, luckily.

 

This release of Spin Doctor is an embarrassing POS - and it's the only reason I bought Toast in the first place! I don't even want to open it again for fear it will corrupt all of my music and my OS.

Your experience with Spin Doctor is more extreme than mine. For me, Spin Doctor will capture an audio stream from the Mac's audio input or open an existing audio file. I can mark tracks, apply filters and export to Toast. Nearly everything else doesn't work. As for playing tracks, I found that double clicking on the track starts playback at the beginning. The playhead doesn't move until you press the space bar to pause the playback. Pressing the space bar again restarts the playback and the playhead moves. I agree that Spin Doctor is embarrassing. However, I'm not afraid to open and use it for these limited functions.

Greetings 'Digital',

 

I may have been hasty in using the term "POS" but honestly as long as it took you to read my post is about the length of time I took to try the software for the first time then decide to back...away...slowly before my laptop blew up. I didn't even have a chance to plug my turntable in, import anything - or frankly try anything other than what I described! The experience was pretty dismal. I have a previous version of SD - 6 or 7? not sure - it's idiosyncratic to be sure, but it actually works! Too bad it doesn't work on the updated OS.

tsantee -Mac2TiVo 1.2.0. I have a version 1.2.1 from somewhere but it doesn't matter because Mac2TiVo doesn't work with either Lion or Mountain Lion.

 

I have the Mac2Tivo 1.2.1 app which does allow me to select and play video files from my "Tivo series 2" when selected. I'm curious to understand what issues you've experienced with Mac2Tivo. From OS 10.8.2 after entering the Media Access Key I can go to my Tivo, scroll down to the bottom of the Playlist and select my computer name which displays the videos from the folder which was dragged into the Mac2Tivo content area. I have not tried this in OS 10.7, but it works well for me in OS 10.8.2.

Thanks for pointing this out. I haven't tried it in probably a year because several users including myself could not get our Mac2Tivo videos to appear in the TiVo menu. But I just launched it and it now appears without any problem. My guess is this got fixed in a TiVo firmware update at some time. I'll correct my earlier post.

If Spin Doctor won't capture the audio or create the waveform when done, capture the audio using QuickTime Player and then use the Open command in Spin Doctor to open that audio file. I'm usually biting on my tongue whenever I write a post about Spin Doctor so I don't embellish my remarks. Your judgements seem perfectly reasonable to me.

Thank you for your suggestion. Given your proclivity to posting about this product....11.5K and counting! ... your comment about Spin Doctor is not promising. Any feelings about Final Vinyl? I'm not sure it's even still a product, but it used to be a competitor to SD.

Haven't yet tried the toast 11 side of the application, but just to notify and please correct me if I'm wrong, but the cd spin doctor will crash mountain lion. I was told by Roxio tech support that it is incompatible with mountain lion and their developers have no plans as yet for an update. Moreover, apple states that if your machine came preloaded with mountain lion, you cannot downgrade to lion or leopard due to a software, firmware, hardware conflict. Mountain Lion has been out for ~6 months, time for Roxio to get their thumbs out and produce an update or even just a new version of toast/cdspindoctor. I buy an updated version if it is available.

This is curious. Spin Doctor X (Roxio replaced CD Spin Doctor with Spin Doctor X in Toast 11) works for me in Mountain Lion the same as it did in Lion and Snow Leopard, which means only a few of its functions work at all. It doesn't crash when opened. However, it does crash if it encounters a conflicting VST plugin in the root>Library>Audio>Plugins>VST folder. For instance I found a conflict with a plugin from Bias-inc. I suggest going to that folder and moving any VST plugins to somewhere else. Then try launching Spin Doctor. If that works you should get the opportunity to download the Spin Doctor update. You can drag plugins back to that folder until you find the one(s) that are causing the crash.

 

It is true that Spin Doctor is not officially supported in Mountain Lion and it may be that it is unable to capture online audio streams. But it should be able to capture line input audio, mark tracks, apply filters and send them to Toast.

Since the latest Toast 11 update, the Toast app will not launch at all. it simply hangs forever and must be Force Quit. What happened from Toast 10 to Toast 11 - it seems to have gone down the crapper in this transition....

I am baffled. The support page does not appear to have the complete Toast 11.1 Standard Package, only an update. And the update is rev 1067, with no sign of 1072. Has Roxio rolled back to an earlier support page?

 

I'm deeply annoyed with Toast at the moment. After 'upgrading' from 11.0.4 to 11.1 (and I can't remember how I managed this as the software update link in the application didn't work properly), I found myself unable to use the application for writing DVDs, which is mainly what I use (or rather used) it for. I was getting a mysterious message: Sense key = MEDIUM ERROR / code = 0x73, 0x03. Basically, disks from a manufacturer and box which previously were fine no longer worked with Toast. And every time this problem happened, Toast mangled the DVD. I must have wasted 5 or more before I finally gave up. On advice from Apple, I just burned DVDs directly from the Finder.

 

I've now tracked down my original copy of 11.0.4 and was thinking of rolling back to it. But now I'm about to upgrade to Mountain Lion, and believe that Toast won't be compatible anyway.

 

So I'm wondering where the famous 11.1 (1072) upgrade might be.

What is on Toast's software updates page is what I posted at the top of this topic. It includes Toast 11.1(1067). After launching that version and going through the setup assistant the built-in updater will give you the option to download and install Toast 11.1(1072). The Toast 11.1(1072) is also available ala carte via a link a macupdate.com

 

Toast 11.0.4 works in Mountain Lion.

 

addendum: As noted at the top of this topic the Toast update is now for version 11.2

I have Spin Doctor X on a Macbook Pro running Snow Leopard. I purchased the Toast 11 about a month ago and am having troubles in defining tracks. I can click an drag to create a track on captured or opened media just fine. The issues comes in when I define a 5 minute track the duration of the track may read anywhere from 27 seconds to 47 minutes. So when I get all the tracks defined and send them to either Toast or iTunes it says that I need 5 blank discs to burn a 47 minute audio file. Is this one of the messed up issues of Spin Doctor X or is there some work around for this so the track duration matches what I have marked?

Spin Doctor X does not send correct tracks to iTunes. But it should send them to Toast. You are using 1.0.1, correct? If you want the tracks in iTunes you need to send them to Toast, choose Save as Disc Image, switch to the Audio Files setting in the Convert window, add the saved .sd2f file and now send to iTunes from Toast. I'll double check if there is something that needs to be done to get the tracks correctly to Toast. I know I've done it but maybe I had a special way to do it.

 

Make sure Toast is open before sending the tracks from Spin Doctor. Also check to see if any of the track in Toast happen to be the entire length of the recording. If so, delete it.

 

Oh my. I just did some trials and it's not working. If you look at what Spin Doctor says is the track duration it will be nothing close to the actual duration. I can't seem to do anything to work around this. Spin Doctor is also crashing when it sends the tracks to Toast. This is with OS 10.8.2. I'll try it on a different Mac tomorrow. I suggest you get Final Vinyl for marking tracks instead.

 

Addendum: I did another trial on a Mac running OS 10.7.x and the track marking doesn't work there, either. This makes Spin Doctor X useless.

tsantee,

Thank you for all the helpful information you post here! Do you know if Roxio has posted a full-installion disk image of the latest version of Toast 11 Pro (similar to the link you posted above for the standard version)? I'm about to embark on a clean installation on a new computer, and don't want to install older, probably unstable, versions and struggle with running patch updaters.

No they haven't. In fact, I doubt the currently shipping Toast 11 Pro installer includes current versions of many of the Pro-extras. Roxio doesn't even mention the updates that are available by going to those developer's sites. There is no change in the Blu-ray plugin.

 

Some of the third-party apps can be downloaded straight from the developer rather than use the Toast-bundled installer and then registered using the keys furnished by Roxio. You might first check if your Fotomagico and Photoshop Elements apps need to first be deauthorized before being available for registration again.

Buying Toast 11 is a way to indulge in a bit of nostalgia, take me back 10 or so years since I have used such a badly written bit of software. Nothing seems to work properly, sometimes I can find a workaround to stop it crashing. I can go and make a coffee whilst it struggles to open, should I send Roxio my coffee bill?

Should we treat the clowns who run Roxio seriously or just put it down as a joke at our expense?

are there moderators here?

it's difficult to tell who's responding to these queries.

i have one major complaint about toast titanium (using 11.0.4) and that is for what it does it sure is clunky (slow) when browsing files to add for burning.

scroll down wait...wait...scroll down...wait...you might eventually get to the files you need if you don't discover you've overshot them and then you scroll up...

wait...wait some more....this thing feels like it's out of gas or stuck in the wrong gear.

when i try to simply drag files into my main-window the thing has crashed my computer numerous times...so here we go...scroll..wait..wait some more.

once you mange to wrestle your files into place it burns quite quickly but that's far from titanium in my opinion.

the feedback about the new toast 11.1 don't sound promising.

i payed way too much for this program me thinks.

toast 5 was a decent product....what happened roxio?

i see the post before mine was posted january 13th...kinda answers my question.

not good.

This is a users group forum so nobody here is communicating with Roxio or Corel; just one another. As for the problems you're experiencing, these are uncommon and suggest there is something amiss on your Mac. I suggest using Disk Utility to repair permissions. If you have Disk Warrior it may be a good time to use it. Toast's plist and prefs files are easily corrupted so it may help to trash those in your User>Library>Preferences folder and relaunch Toast. I find Toast 11.1 (1072) to be very good so updating isn't a bad choice. However, make a duplicate copy of 11.0.4 so you still have that available after the update just in case.

 

Corel does have a forum moderator but that person is only overseeing that the forum's rules are being followed. As far as I know the moderator doesn't have a Mac, much less be able to resolve issues with Toast. There is a link in a pinned post in this forum where users can submit bug reports and feature requests. Otherwise they need to contact Corel's customer support to communicate about issues directly with Corel/Roxio.

Bonjour,

Je suis belge et je débute sous Mac, comme je viens de l'univers PC et que j'utilisais Roxio pour graver mes CDs et DVDs je me suis dis pourquoi ne pas rester fidèle à Roxio sous Mac :( quelle déception !!! Rien ne va, SoundSoap ne démarre même pas il me demande sans cesse de m'enregistrer je lui rentre les infos tout en étant sur Internet; le programme me répond qu'il n'y a pas de liaison Internet. J'essaye la procédure d'urgence pas la peine il ne prend pas le fichier. Je me renseigne sur Internet et je constate que la société qui a créé le logiciel n'existe plus!! Donc me voilà déjà avec un logiciel que je peux mettre à la poubelle.

Même chose pour SpinDoctor impossible de capturer du son le Mac se plante complètement et redémarre. J'ai essayé Adobe photo Element 9 un désastre, l'organiser se plante n'affiche rien. Enfin une merveille de logiciel :) pour ne pas être vulgaire... Vous voyez ce que je veux Dire.

J'ai demandé d'être remboursé de mon achat, silence radio... Belle politique commerciale chez Roxio :angry: . Un logiciel a surtout ne pas acheter.

Mon Mac est neuf il a 1 mois.
