Question

With Toast, is it possible to create an audio CD with additional content such as a quicktime movie? I am considering buying the program, and if I knew that it could do this I would feel a lot better about my purchase.

 

Plus, it seems like it should, but while I'm here I'll ask. Toast can convert AIFF to MP3, no?

 

Thanks.

Yeah, you know, after posting that last comment I started diggin through iTunes and I found that out. The only thing is that I am looking to convert aiff's that I made on my computer, without having to burn a CD and then import it again to do the conversion. Oh well. Its better than the alternative, which involves spending money I don't have.

Why would you need to burn a CD from the AIFFs in order to convert them to mp3? In iTunes you can select the AIFF tracks and - if you've changed the preferences to mp3 encoding - choose Convert to MP3 from the Advanced menu. You'll end up with both the AIFF and mp3 tracks in iTunes. You do have to burn an audio CD using iTunes if you want to convert any iTunes Music Store downloads.

 

Another excellent mp3 encoding application is Audion which became freeware last year. You can download it here.

You are probably looking towards making an Enhanced Disc. Here are the steps to try

 

1. Launch Toast

2. Click on the Audio Tab

3. Select "Enhanced Audio CD"

4. Drag the audio files that you wish to use for the audio portion

5. Click on the Data Tab

6. If you intend the data files to be read on PC or Mac, I suggest using either Mac/PC or ISO 9660

7. Drag the data files that you intend for the data portion.

8. Cllick on the Audio tab again.

9. Click on Burn.

 

The resultant CD will play on your audio player as well as the data content will be read on your computer. No Toast does not have any option to convert to mp3. I believe, Roxio did not re-invent the wheel since Itunes does a good job.

Thanks a lot for the info.

 

iTunes converts to mp3? So far as I know, iTunes converts to m4a, not mp3.

In iTunes preferences you can choose to have iTunes encode mp3, AAC, Apple Lossless or AIFF.
