The last stage of matering a CD is to actually burn your tracks to CD, i.e. authoring. What software do you use? Does it let you select how much blank space there is between tracks? Is that one setting for the entire disk or can that be set per track?

Some tracks are meant to run together with continuous sound and others require some silence. I am not interested in all the various ways people accomplish this using run-of-the-mill music players that also happen to allow you to rip and burn CDs. At this point of my investigation, all I want to know is what are the "proper" mastering/authoring programs that are available.

Simply a Red Book compliant authoring application? Do you plan to send a file to a CD manufacturing plant? Or do you plan to burn your own CD-ROMs?

A proper red book CD is essentially a continuous stream of data, and the "songs", offsets, or tracks are written in the TOC that is at the start of the data stream. You will also want to handle the ISRC. And also DDP.

Excellent question. The anwser is "Yes." Wink

I'd want to be able to do both. Sometimes, a release needs to be manufactured and sometimes a CDR release is good enough.

I've dealt with ISRC codes before when releasing albums for my Progressive Rock band Pinnacle. I'll have to google DDP. Thanks for the link. I'll read up.

These days DDP is the most sensible way to deliver your CD for duplication.
