Cd Spin Doctor Help Needed

Question

I have made two recordings using CD Spin Doctor 3.0.2 - each one from one side of an old cassette tape. How can I put them into one file? I don't see an option for copying and pasting....

 

I running Mac OSX 10.4.4

The easiest way is to start over and do it the same as with LP's. Start a new recording and record the first side of your tape. Now in Spin Doctor don't push "Stop", instead hit "Pause". While it's paused turn the cassette over, then hit "Record" in CDSD and then Play on your cassette machine. When the second side is done hit "Stop" and you'll end up with one file for defining tracks...

You want both sides to be one file? Usually people want to split the file into separate tracks. In that case it doesn't matter that you're starting with different files for each side.

 

As for joining the two AIFF files you can do this with Quicktime Pro or with a variety of audio editing applications.

 

One thing you might try is placing the two files in Toast's Audio window with audio CD selected as the format. Then choose Save as Disc Image from the File menu. When that is finished, import the disc image to iTunes. I think it will import as a single joined audio file.

 

hermie54's suggestion of starting over but pressing the pause button between sides also is a good solution.

I know it doesn't really matter for tracks and stuff, but I backup the edited AIFF as a data file and I'd like to have both sides of a record in one file which is named Artist - Album name. Makes archieving a lot easier. For me the A and B sides belong together, being one record. But I suppose other people do it differently...
