Re: Burning Lossless Files to CD-A; Why the f@$k do SHNs take so damn long?

I still use Winamp most times for aesthetic reasons and the fact that I also use it as a video player. I use foobar2000 mostly as a conversion/tagging utility.

Like iamhydrogen said, it decompresses the files first - more precisely, it creates a Nero image file from them, which is burned afterwards. This is to avoid running into problems with file formats that cannot be decoded quickly enough for burning on the fly (think La or OptimFrog; maybe less complex formats on outdated computers too)

(oh and for the record, the result is the same no matter whether you burn with a temporary wav/image file or not, the only difference is that with the temporary file you need enough harddisk space to accommodate the entire show in decoded form)

Yes, in fact it exclusively burns cds as DAO/gapless

If that's the only difference, then I don't care about using Foobar - Though from what other people here have said, using Foobar to SHN > WAV > CD-A goes much more quickly than using Nero to decode on the fly (SHN > CD-A)

Re: Burning Lossless Files to CD-A; Why the f@$k do SHNs take so damn long?

Also, one more quick question - I'm installing FB2K right now, getting ready to follow Five's tutorial on conversion - Is it ok to run the conversion while other system intensive apps are running (ie, Azureus), or is it one of those processes that can't have it's process thread interrupted or it will create errors?

it's okay to do a conversion with other stuff running, I've done this many times without any errors whatsoever. After the conversion, just do a bit compare (or SHNtool cmp or generate .st5s for both sets and compare, what have you).
