Creating Audio CDs
Overview of creating Audio CDs
An Audio CD is a compact disc (CD) that you can play on both Audio CD players and computer CD-ROM drives. With Music Disc Creator, you can make your own Audio CDs by recording tracks from other Audio CDs or audio from DVD-Videos, and from audio files (MP3, OGG, WAV, WMA or other supported formats) stored on your hard disk and other discs.
An Audio CD consists of a single track list, which can contain up to 99 tracks. You can span the Audio CD project across several discs—Music Disc Creator automatically adds disc breaks, or you can add custom disc breaks. Additionally, you can add fade-in and fade-out effects to each track, as well as transitions between tracks.
The following list shows the basic steps for creating Audio CDs:
n If it is not already selected, choose Audio CD as the project type.
n Add tracks to the project.
n If there are too many tracks in the project for a single CD, add custom disc breaks. For more information, see Spanning discs and adding custom disc breaks.
n Add transitions between tracks, and also add fade-in and fade-out effects. For more information, see Adding transitions and fading.
n Optionally, you can add a data track to the audio CD, creating a multi-session disc. For more information, see Adding a data folder to an audio CD.
When you have completed your project, you can burn it to disc or save it as an image file. You can also send selected tracks in the project to a portable device, such as an iPod® or PSP™.
Note: To send tracks to an iPod, you must have iTunes installed.
