View Full Version : switching format flac

2014-07-02, 11:55 PM

I was wandering what format that I have to use to make beautiful bootleg-cd's of a flac-file. Most of the time I get 2 or 3 seconds of silence between 2 tracks. What format do I have to use to fix this problem. I use Switch sound file converter. Anyone an idea?

check with schmoe75's info about O.N.E.S and go gapless by default.

The problem isn't the format, it's the settings you use when burning the cds. I don't know what software you're using to burn your cds, but you need to set it to DAO (disc at once) to burn the cd without gaps. I'd suggest doing a search for a guide on how to burn gapless cds with the softwre that you use.

If the problem is the burning software, there are a few good ones: Nero, Toast, CDBurnerXP, etc. Those allow gapless burning.

Try decoding flac files to .wav files using flac frontend, or TLH if you're still finding a problem with track seams. Switch seems ok but I don't know if it's as reliable
