Transfer Of Crossfaded Audio


rostasi

Question

I'm using Jam 6.0.2.

After spending much time

putting together a podcast program -

some tunes having long crossfades,

I find that I am unable to actually do

anything with it now. I can't drag it into iTunes...

I can't burn it as an audio DVD.

The closest I've come to making it useful is

that I've saved it as a disc image and was able to

drag that into my iTunes as one huge file (without tracks).

Any suggestions? It would be nice to be able to eventually

use the audio with the new Apple Podcasting software, but

there appears to be some bumps in the road.

 

Thank you,

 

Rod

Do you think an upgrade to 7 would make any of this easier in the future?

 

I appreciate your help!

 

best,

Toast 7 is a big improvement over Toast 6 so I definitely recommend upgrading. Toast 7's audio export options are AIFF, WAV, AAC, Apple Lossless, FLAC and Ogg Vorbis formats

Hey, well I've just made a great discovery re: post above. I want to lay out my program, with tracks, crossfades etc., then spit it out as one file, like a mixdown. I just discovered that saving as a disc image (as mentioned), is actually a Sound Designer II file - which, when opened in Quicktime Player, comes in as one single track (which is what I want).

 

Accessing this disc image (sound designer file) in either Toast or Jam keeps the seperate tracks in order, (which you may want), but opening the Sd2f in Quicktime Pro then let's me export a mixed-down version to whatever I like!

 

Hope that helps you, as much as it's helped me -

Sharon.

You can open the Jam disc image in Toast 7, select the individual tracks and export them to a variety of formats. If you don't have Toast 7 you can select the individual tracks in Toast 6 and export them as individual AIFF files from which you can use iTunes to convert them to other formats.

OK, thanks a bunch! It looks like it just may work!

I'm in the middle of exporting the disc image tracks from Toast 6.1.1

to a folder on my desktop...soon, I'll plop them in iTunes for conversion

and away I go...

This is funny. I think that I helped both of us unintentionally! :)

 

I see what you mean about this.

Actually, I've thought recently that

your way is probably the best

for podcast...all we have to do is direct folks

to a single mixed file...and then, we can just tell them

when the songs begin:

 

00:00 Song A

04:33 Song B

08:10 Song C

etc...

 

much easier...Thanks! :huh:

I do exactly that with my podcast The Best Radio You Have Never Heard (http://www.bestradioyouhaveneverheard.com)

 

and it works fine. Jam to disc image to converted one file mp3.

But be advised, if you import the individual tracks to iTunes, it will not be seamless. There is glitching at the crossfade breaks. And as my crossfade are generally nowhere near the actual song break, this is highly annoying and unacceptable to me.

Stay with the single file mp3's for you podcast
