What I Mainly Want For Cd Burning

Question

Okay, so I'm thinking about getting Toast 10 Titanium, but I was wondering if those of you who have it can shine some light on specifics. What I use my burner for most often is compilation CDs.. what can I say, I'm old school and enjoy making 'mix tapes' for car rides (let's not get into the iPod discussion here ;) .

 

1) I know Toast can manipulate the space between the tracks, but can you have a gapless transition or does it still have that split second of silence with live stuff?

 

2) Again, mostly with live stuff, is there a way in the program to fade in and out if there's just one live track in the midst of album cuts?

 

3) Does Toast equalize the sound across the whole CD (some songs are louder than others depending on the original recording)?

 

And I think that might be all my questions! I thought I had more.. maybe I'll think of them later. Thanks for any help!

Hmm.. I guess I misunderstood the answer to the 'gapless' question.. there's still a split second of a gap between live stuff. Not a huge deal, but it'd be nice if it were gone. ;)

There should not be any gap at all. Check the Recorder Settings window and make sure DAO is checked and not TAO. Which settings did you use in Toast? If you were in the Audio CD setting in the Audio window were the pauses set to zero seconds? If you click Preview in Toast you'll hear a silence between tracks but that won't be on the burned audio CD.

Everything seems a "check" from what you've said, but still a slight gap. That gap that you hear in preview is what I get on the recorded CD.. odd if you don't think it should be that way I think..

Is it possible the audio file itself has a slight amount of silence at the end or start of the track? I've seen that with some mp3 tracks I've downloaded from eMusic. What I've done in that case is use the track trim feature in Toast to clip off a few hundredths of a second where the silence appeared. If you don't hear a click when previewing in the custom crossfade window then it isn't what I've just described.
