I burn Pro Tools files all the time and I've never encountered this problem. I never use WAV, however, as I've found it to be unreliable for some things in the past. BWF or Broadcastwave is preferable, if your system is recent enough to output that (although the extension still often shows up as WAV), but I find AIFF is still far and away the best choice for this sort of thing, so maybe you can try that.

 

Otherwise, maybe there's an error in your Pro Tools output settings? Perhaps there's a sample rate pull up or pull down that isn't apparent, or else perhaps it's your drive or even the write speed you select that's too high?

 

I'd be interested in an update. What sorts of artifacts are we talking about, anyway?

 

Seems the problem was a L1 Ultramaximizer plug in. All sample rates on output settings,bounce and dither etc are set correct. When I remove it the noises go away. Not a lot of them but 2-4 per CD w/60 min music on disc. Same drive and write speed as always and I use the L1 UlMax alot of the time. Going to try reinstall or ask Waves what they think.

Noises are only there for 1/75 sec or so, ,,just weird little blubs or skips. I was burning broadcast wave From PT 7 TDM sys on mac G5dual 1.8.

Thanks for your concern.
