In order to send a CD master to a duplicator / replicator for manufacture, they require a timing sheet printout. The printout details track IDs, timing / spacing, and other tech-related info. Without it, the disc will likely not be accepted. Or if it is, mistakes may be made as there is no reference sheet to refer to.
Jam had this feature, and it was removed in Toast 8. Hence, a pro-level program has now been reduced to hobby-level software.
I wish the powers that be at Roxio would wake up already. This incredibly stupid decision is the talk of the town here in NYC, where seemingly every recording engineer alternately laughs or cries as it is discussed. Not since Gibson bought OPCODE have a heard a company bashed as much as I have heard Roxio bashed over this past year. I mean people are FUMING here.
Add to this is the fact that many of us have years worth of Jam documents that we may have to open in the future for clients. With Toast 8 as it is, we cannot use it. With the uncertainly as to whether or not Jam will continue to work on future machines and OS versions, we could be looking at hours of lost work on a regular basis, in trying to recreate "lost" CD playlists from Jam documents. What professional would EVER trust Roxio again with their work?
The weird part of it is that it would have been so simple to leave to feature in. Some bozo actually went OUT OF THEIR WAY to do this.
