CD Audio Problems Now As Well....

Recommended Posts

We all know about the issues with burning DVD and Blu-ray Discs from ProRes files. Now I'm noticing issues with burning audio CDs from 88.2k files. Previous versions had no problems with this procedure.

 

Can someone double-check me on this and post the results? Thanks!!!

 

Starting to wonder if ANYTHING in Toast 18 actually works. Checking for updates via the support tab inside of Toast now seems to just get hung up and I have to force quit the app. Really helpful that now there is no other way to download updates from this website.

Tried multiple file types last night. The only file that does not create distortion in the audio CD is 44.1k, 16bit. That seemed to burn okay.

I guess they removed the ability to use higher quality audio files in Toast 18. 

 

I don't think I'm much of a fan of Toast 18. I guess I will need to reinstall Toast 15 again.

Please try to understand the definition of an Audio CD. It IS 44.100 and 16 bit. Anything else resolution wise and it cannot be an Audio CD conform its specs. Yes, you can burn Data CD's from those hires files, but they will NOT play in a standard Audio CD Player.

Wikipedia: Compact Disc Digital Audio, "Compact Disc Digital Audio (CDDA or CD-DA), also known as Audio CD, is the standard format for audio compact discs. The standard is defined in the Red Book, one of a series of Rainbow Books (named for their binding colors) that contain the technical specifications for all CD formats".

As for ProRes, according to Wikipedia: "ProRes is a line of intermediate codecs, which means they are intended for use during video editing, and not for practical end-user viewing". Which may explain your problems. It's simply not a format for burning.

Oh yeah, well aware of the "standards" on red book vs. orange book. On our CD reference masters we still use SoundBlade with DDP shells. My only point with the CD burning is Toast 18 is that in past versions we never had to "dumb down' audio files to burn quick check discs for clients.

Not a bing deal, but it did save a little time in the day to not need to add an extra step. Just being nitpicky that some of the cool aspects of Toast seem to keep disappearing.

Thanks...

It's probably too simple, but the very old Burn has been updated recently. Also, NCH in Australia I think has Express Burn, perhaps it's worth a try? I have only used it for Data disks and that went fine, no idea about how it does the rest though.
