Cd & Dvd Creator General Question Covering All Editions

Question

I had an old copy of Creator that I was extremely happy with, mainly because it allowed me to use unlimited fade in/out on music tracks. I know that later versions had a limit of 20 seconds on fade, so my question is "What was the last version that had the unlimited fade capability?" I'm looking to buy a new copy and, as a DJ, I NEED that capability. Any assistance would be most helpful.

Did you buy the old version of Creator "?" only for the audio features or did/do you use any of the video/image/back up parts of the program.

 

I can't answer your question until you tell us what the"new" version program you tried to use. Open it and tell us what is in the title bar at the top.

 

If you are using it only for the audio ; there may be other options including those from other companies.

Yes, I was using only using the audio version. And it was a much older version of Creator, somewhere around 6.0, I believe, while later versions only had that 20 second fade in/out feature.

That is way before my Roxio time so I don't know the program that gave you the extended fade time.

 

I tried to see if the "Create Music Disc Projects in Creator NXT 2 Pro would allow me to set a 30 second fade in/out time. It did but when I went to listen to the transition, I was not convinced that I really had that much time. You can buy it,try it and return (in the allowed time) it if you are not satisfied

 

The audio editors in Roxio's stable are not professional programs. Personally, I would look for a more dedicated and professional audio editor. Have you looked at Gold Waveor its sister programs?

You can use Windows to burn your cd/DVD

I took a look at GoldWave, and it's not what I had in mind. Roxio allowed you to burn multiple songs to a disc. I'm going to use 5 as my example (all using similar BPM). I would fade in track one for 30-45 seconds, allowing my to do an intro to the song live in the radio booth over my pre-recorded set (the CD). At home, I would have put the 5 tracks in the best beat match order (by ear). Say track one had a long exit (as most dance tracks do), and track 2 had a shorter entrance. I would fade track 1 out for 45 seconds while simultaneously fading in track 2 by 30 seconds thereby effectively combining the two tracks and making them sound as seamless as possible. I would continue to do similar things with each of the next 3 tracks, with each having different fade in and out values, depending on what sounded the best for each, with Track 5 usually having a final fade out of 30-45 seconds, depending on how the ending sounded. Around 2006-7, I purchased the newest version of Creator and hated the fact that they had changed that fade portion to only 20 seconds, as it severly constricted what I wanted the program to do.

 

I do appreciate your answer, though, and hopefully, another old Roxio fogey like myself will be able to point me to the best version.

Sorry I couldn't help. At this point, "Create Music Disc Projects" would be perhaps the best Roxio alternative.

Not a problem. The reason that I was asking is that Amazon still sells old copies, so I was hoping to pick up one.
