Subject:Creating track id's 4 live Dj Mix Recording?

Hello All,
Quick question...

i've received a 1 hour live recording dj mix containing 12 songs. I've been asked to insert track # id's so that a listner can scroll without having to listen to the entire cd as 1 long track.

I'm using Sound Forge 6, how can this be accomplished so that when i burn it, the 12 songs will have 12 markers?

Thanks in advance.

Can't do it. Sound Forge does not have this capability. You need Vegas, CDA or any number of other programs that have disc at once (DAO) burning. Its a huge limitation in my view. Even SF 8 doesn't have it.

It's a cut and paste operation.
First, open in Sound Forge.
Find the exact beginning of the 2nd song, press "M" on your keyboard to place a marker. Double-click to the left of the marker to highlight the region of the first track. Press the cut button (the one with the sissors) Press the New Folder button (far left on the toolbar) to open a new window. The new window will be named "Sound 1" Press the paste button, (2 buttons to the right of the cut button) The first song is now in the window named Sound 1. Click the x in the upper right corner to close the window. a dialog box will open asking if you wish to save the changes to Sound 1, click yes. Pick where you want to save Sound 1. My Music, create a new folder, naming it "DJ Mix" would work.
Find the beginning of the 2 song, and repeat. the next new window opened will be named Sound 2. Repeat until all of tracks are in the "DJ Mix "folder.
Close the original file. Save the changes if you don't need the original file.
Close Sound Forge.
Open your CD burning program. Find the "DJ Mix" forder. Start with Sound 1, and add all of the tracks in order.
Burn the disc in the "disc at once mode" making sure that there are no spaces between the tracks. (normal is a 2 second gap)
Follow this exactly, and you will make a disc that will play without interruption, and have tracks that any CD player will recognize.
Good Luck; Steve
