Re: Ripping from CD(R)

also do you know about burned-in TAO gaps and SBEs? you should look for those as well

you need wav editor for that..

so its a big hassle for nothing unless you have a 1/1,000,000 cdr. document each band and date, resarch on google, etree, archive etc etc

tell me if there's anything you don't understand. hope this helps.
I always check if there is a different or better source. Most of the CDRs were never traded, some older shows that came from tape I have myself on tape or in digital form. I don't bother if the quality is lower than what I have! Ripping and editing takes a lot of time, I try and prevent doing that whenever I can.

I will have to look into "burned-in TAO gaps" and "SBEs", will do that, thanks. Not sure if someone can do that by accident. The CDRs I have were burnt directly after transfer to hard disk, only track indices added.
