DJ M.o.E 8:04 PM - 15 March, 2007
Hi All,

it's like this....U make ur own continuous mix...& then u go to break it into separate tracks...so when or b4 u put it on CD how do u establish no delay between tracks...so when u go to listen to final product (CD) & it goes from track 1 to track 2 (for example)with no delay.....


Thanx in advance....

I record all my mixes in adobe audition 1.5, I make the entire mix, then mix it down and then add the tracks later, where ever I want to add them. I then name the tracks so that it shows on some of the newer car radios. There is another program that I used to use Music Studio, bought it from Best Buy $29, works pretty good but only has 2 Tracks.

it depends on the software you're using... as it says above check your preferances. in some cases as you progress through the sequence of screens one of them will have an option for that. typically i have seen 1 sec 2 sec or no gap... good luck!

Record your mix continuous mix to your computer as WAVE file.
If you record into CD, rip that CD as a continous WAVE file.

You can use Sony's CD Architect to assign track start/end locations. Then from within that same program you can record your CD with these new tracks.

i have a g4 ibook, will any of the programs that people have mentioned cause to much of a load on it? i have a fear of running 2 programs and having a prob with the song playing smoothly

FYI, Some CD players will preduce a gap no matter what you do... if you've tracked your mix and are getting a gap between tracks, play it on another CD player to confirm that you've split it correctly.

Take the final mixdown from audition into Nero, it burns MUCH faster and better than Audition's built in burner. In Nero you can insert markers where you want the tracks to begin. Before you burn you can select pause time between tracks... first track (before track one) is two seconds by default... leave zero seconds for the rest of the CD and burn away. Works like a charm. Just remember... don't insert cue markers in Audition since Nero won't read them and you'd be wasting your time - just use the raw mixdown.

theres no way you will be able to run serato and the recording program @ the same time on an ibook g4 1.42 ghz processor. period. did you ever check your system activity when you run serato? Its like 80-90%. As for no pause mix with multiple tracks. Toast with jam.
