I didn't find Jam on my boxed upgrade of Toast 8.

Question

I just installed Toast 8 which was supposed to include Jam. What's up?

I tried to contact customer support using many methods. About half of them don't even work.

Jam is not a separate application. Choose Audio CD as your format in the Toast Audio window and the Jam features are present. You may want to keep Jam 6 on your hard drive for some special purposes. If you search this forum for "Jam" you'll find some threads that deal with changes in Toast 8.

I do not have "Jam" from the past. I have been using Toast for years, but have never purchased Jam before. It's inclusion in the Toast 8 bundle is a major factor in choosing to upgrade. I have been using Masterlist CD from Digidesign until moving to a G5 OSX computer about a year ago. Some of my clients want to see Jam.

Just to be clear, there is no "Jam" as such. The Audio CD window in Toast 8 is where you find the features that previously were in Jam, plus some new features that weren't in Jam. If your clients want to see Jam, then choose Audio CD as the format in the Toast 8 Audio window. There you have it. It's not called Jam any more.

 

Tips on how to use those features are in some articles on the Toast Support page here on Roxio's site.

Toast 8 includes features from the product previously called Jam... these features are accessible in the audio CD project area... these features include:

 

crossfading

track trimming

gain adjustment

normalization

PQ subcodes

ISRC/UPC information

dithering

 

As tsantee says... there is not separate product included with Toast 8 called Jam... but the features are available in Toast.

If you are doing mastering in a pro setting, you should know that Toast 8 will not allow you to print a timing sheet, which is required to submit CDs to replicators. So you will not be able to use Toast 8 for this purpose.
