Using Toast For Creating Audio Cd Red Book Master



Hi, I am not too familiar with the Toast software line. I have heard that you can create audio master red book CD's using this software, however, I wasn't able to get much of a description from the product stats.


Can I use Toast to do the things that I have done before on Windows using CD Architect? I basically need to layout my album tracks, create cross-fades etc... and be able to burn a master red book CD that can be used for manufacturing CDs.


If Toast cannot do this, is there any Mac program at all comparable to CD Architect?

Roxio used to sell Jam 6 which has all these capabilities. However, they chose to put most of Jam 6's capabilities into Toast 8 and then improved them in Toast 9. My understanding is Toast 9 is Red Book. It has cross fading and many other fine adjustments and writes its "disc images" in Sound Designer 2 Format (sd2f). It does lack a couple features that professionals have complained weren't ported over from Jam 6. By the way, I'm pretty sure Jam 6 still works very well (at least I haven't heard that it doesn't as I haven't used it for awhile) but you'd need to find a used copy.


I suggest searching this and the Jam 6 forum to learn more about what the audio professionals have discussed.


You can purchase Toast online from Roxio and return it for a refund within 30 days if you are not satisfied that it meets your needs.
