Re: Problems with Toast 7.0.1

If all the original FLAC files share this report
Code:
CD-quality properties:
  CD quality:                 yes
  cut on sector boundary:     yes
  sector misalignment:        0 bytes
  long enough to be burned:   yes
then I can see no reason why Toast would feel the need to pad anything with silence. I give up but, just for interests sake, how does Toast cope with burning an audio disc straight from the FLAC files without prior decompression ?

Which burner, at what speed and is its firmware bang up to date ?

Re: Problems with Toast 7.0.1

Oh yeah, as I'm sure you could guess, same thing burning from the flac files.

Next up.... transferring the show to hubby's mac and burning from there (he has a one year old tower).

Re: Problems with Toast 7.0.1

Well, I found another firewire burner sitting around here, hooked it up, and burned one of the shows again from the flac files. I listened to it and it sounded just fine. However, upon opening the wavs in Audacity again, there is still that 0.012 (or so) second 'flat spot' that I posted images of on the first page. I am baffled by this. It was burned on a totally different drive (a Mitsumi CD-48X9TE according to Toast). This was burned using Toast 7.1 . Isn't it weird that the same gap appears after burning it using two different drives? Is it possible that this is 'normal' for Toast and I just never before looked at the wavs in an editor and so I just never noticed it before?

edit to add: The size of the gap appears to be about 1 sector. Hmmmm

Re: Problems with Toast 7.0.1

I've spent most of the day trying to find apps for joining lossless (yes, I completely forgot I already started a thread for that topic) or uncompressed files and resampling/dithering. I finally get around to asking the question here but I see the subject has already been discussed. It's always the last place you look.

Thanks Lynne and Ffooky.
