You can have gapless playback if you make the audio tracks a single audio file. You can do this by adding them to the Toast Audio window with Audio CD chosen as the format and then choosing Save as Disc Image. The resulting .sd2f file should be seen as a single track. If you are wanting the quality to be greater than 16-bit, 44.1 kHz then you'll need to use some other app to join your audio tracks into a single file.

 

Personally I don't expect Toast ever will have zero gaps for its music DVDs. I believe this is due to Toast using the DVD slide show spec to create these rather than creating DVD Audio discs. There probably is something in that spec that has the DVD player seeking each chapter rather than continuously playing through the chapters. The laser's seeking of the chapter causes a brief silence.

 

You refer to Toast as a "Pro" application. It isn't. It is a consumer-level application. Roxio does use the term "Pro" to market the version of Toast that includes additional bundled applications and Blu-ray plugin, but the actual Toast application is no different in the so-called "Pro" version than it is in the standard version.

 

There are several things that professionals wish Toast could do that it doesn't do. DVD-audio discs is one of them.
