Merging Tracks On Audio Cds

Question

I used an old Creator 7 version that allowed me to drag and drop multiple tracks from a Source CD, merge them into one track, and burn them to a destination CD as a single track. I'm looking for this feature in Easy CD & DVD Burning (red box) and can't find it. Is it available? Or is it on the NXT version? Or is there some other software I should be getting?

I don't have the Red Box version, but looking in Creator 2012, I don't seen an option for merging tracks, which as you mention, used to be available.

 

What's the advantage to you of one single track vs. multiple tracks with no gaps?

The classical music source CD will have several suites, say, and each suite is recorded as three, four, or more movements, each having its own track. If I add one suite to my mix, and play it back "randomized", the suite doesn't stay together and play back in sequence. Instead, a movement from this one, a movement from that one, etc, etc. What I want from my randomization, is one suite from this composer, another from someone else, etc. But I need the whole suite each time.

Right... got it, and I understand what you mean. I hit the same thing with some of my randomly played music too. I'm hoping maybe someone else will jump in here and point to an option I didn't find that does what we used to be able to do.

Regrets JonRob and Dave,

 

That was something the old fully functional Creator Classic could do in version 7.0 / 7.5 [see below]

That was removed from Creator when Sonic ate Roxio and the Sonic people started to castrate Creator Classic in favor of their own 'simplified' modules. I don't know of any option to merge tracks like that in what we have left. :(

 

Regards,

Brendon

Thanks, Brendon. I suspected that was the case.

 

But, JonRob, if you're determined there's a way.

 

Here's a link to a zip file for WavMerge. Once you install it, go to "Edit -> Add" and add the tracks you want to merge. Then you can save that as a single .WAV file. So, you'll have to rip the tracks from your CD to your HD first, merge them, then you can write them to CD as a single track. (Or convert to .MP3 as a single track.)

 

Hope that helps!

It has some other options such as increasing or decreasing the speed of a track, but it's just a simple resampling. Change the speed, change the pitch.

It is probably because I don't understand the Question :lol:

 

Using Sound Editor, isn't this about what you are after???

Dave, Brendon, Jim

 

Thanks very much to all of you for your help. I put together the steps from Dave, and got finally, a mix CD that I was after.

 

I'm going to try Jim's method next, looks like it will work much like the old Creator 7.

 

As you guys can tell, this is my first effort to use the internet and communities to get technical help. It's been great and I appreciate it much.

No Jon we really could not tell your beginner status at all!

 

You asked a clear question in the right forum with some background information... Not at all what we usually see from someones first attempt -_-

 

If you have other questions or just want to bounce some ideas around, by all means post them :D
