Problem Saving As Disc Image For Audio Cd

Question

I have to duplicate a bunch of audio CD from an original which I created in another program. I wanted to create a "Production Master" CD, quality-control check it, and then open it in Toast and save as a disc image, so that I could make a bunch of duplicates which would be identical to the original. The last version of Toast with which I had experience was Toast 8 Titanium, which could do this just fine. That version is on my work machine, and I was doing this at home, so I decided to purchase Toast 11 Pro, expecting to be able to do the same thing as on Toast 8.

 

Now, having purchased, downloaded and installed the program, when I load up my master audio cd, save as disc image, and then load the disc image to make copies, the end of track marks appear to not be there, and the lengths of the songs are longer than they were in the original program. Toast 11 is apparently ignoring the end of track marks on the master cd, and adding the space between songs to the end of each song. This is NOT OKAY! Am I missing something in the preferences, or some setting checkbox somewhere that will fix this? Toast 8 will read this just fine and will show the space between songs exactly. Why would this funtionality be taken OUT between version 8 and version 11?

 

Frankly, this was the ONLY reason I purchased Toast; just so that I could do this. Does the 11.0.1 update fix this? Does the software actually burn the CD copies properly and just not display the between-track time? Please help...

There's another thread where a user discovered that Toast 11 doesn't do custom crossfades correctly. So something is amiss in the audio CD portion of the application. What you describe may be a bug in Toast 11 because it hasn't come up as an issue in the Toast 9 or 10 forums. I'll try to set aside some time today to do some tests with the audio CD functions. You can send feedback to Roxio via the link in Toast Help. There also are a couple Roxio folks checking in to this forum.

Just as a test last night (very late), I saved as a disc image, loaded the image and burned a new disc from the image. This was after I had updated to 11.0.1, so I was using the latest version available. The duplicated disc did NOT have the track end marks properly placed. My original showed negative number counting down between tracks, but the dupe counted up until the next start ID.

 

This makes me wonder if the bug is only on:

 

A) saving an audio cd as a disc image

 

B) loading a disc image

 

or C) creating a new disc from scratch within Toast 11,

 

or some combination thereof.

 

The reason I wanted Toast in my workflow is that the program I am using to create the master cd is taking 24-bit, 96kHz files and doing sample-rate conversion and dithering on the fly, and outputing a red-book cd. If I burned from that program (which I can certainly do) there is the potential for having the data to be slightly different on every cd. I don't want that. I know it works in Toast 8, so perhaps I need to call Roxio and get a download and authorization for Toast 8 so I can do my work...

That's supposed to be B
