    Toast Crashing Trying To Burn 96K Audio Dvd

    FYI-- once I was able to update to 10.0.9 I was able to burn 96/24 disks-- even though I am on the "unsupported" Mountain Lion OS.
  2. I've been exploring the high rez. audio arena and have downloaded some FLAC music files which sound great on my computer. I really want to hear them through my quite high end home system so have experimented with burning to CD, converting and playing with iPod, etc. I am totally convinced that the best sound comes from music burned to audio DVD (not DVD-Audio, btw),and played from my standard home DVD player. Pretty incredible really, HOWEVER, no matter what I try via Toast (or any other software) I am getting some spectacular sounding discs but also a very slight distortion-- high end "rice krispies"sound if you will. The other anomaly is that I can choose almost all of the Toast options for encoding and get successful burns, EXCEPT when I choose the very highest of the quality options - PCM, 96Khz, 24 bit - Toast builds the "graphics" first, and then starts encoding the first file and crashes every time. Any thoughts out there? Thanks in advance-- Scott

    Toast Crashing Trying To Burn 96K Audio Dvd

    Thanks, tsantee-- I guess I can settle, but the holy grail is still out there, ya know. Wonder why every other setting works fine but the 96/24. The other bugaboo is that I can download and install the 10.0.9 update but it won't let me register the update. Have a tech support ticket it for that one... Thx. --Scott

    Did search on this but did not find anything on this: When capturing from vinyl, and then "auto-defining" tracks, I'm finding that on some of the old records some songs may get so quiet, or have actual pauses, so that one song may end up as 3 or 4 "tracks." Does anyone have a suggestion for what to set sensitivity at to avoid this? And/or does anyone know how I can select the 3 or 4 tracks and force them to become one track? I'm sure I'm just not seeing something here, but can't seem to do this.

    Thanks for the advice. Wish there was a way to just "combine" tracks, as the auto track feature is a great time saver....
