Re: SBE (dropout at end of every track) do i fix it?

SBEs don't necessariliy cause the dropouts your are hearing - but when someone burns a bunch of SBE'd tracks to CD, the software sometimes "fills" that truncated frame with zeros.

There's an option to turn that off in most burning software.

If they're already screwed up like that, or if you have the 2 second gap problem (usually a result a past CD burning with had that option turned on), you'll have to edit the whole show back together (remove the gaps) as one WAV, then cut on sector boundaries into new tracks.

The links in my sig will get you all the editing software and fixing software (Trader's Little Helper) you need.

have fun
