suggestions for adding track numbers to long dj mix
 
i need to purchase software that gives me the ability to record my long dj mixes, edit the audio if necessary, then add track numbers and burn to cd. can anyone suggest something useful. a free download would be ideal but i'm willing to buy something that will do the trick. thanks.

I have done stuff like that and I had to use a dedicated audio program to do it.
I created a mix that was one long track and then went into Sound Forge, sliced up the individual tracks and made them their own files. Then I took all of the tracks and put them into Nero for burning and set the time between tracks to "0". I could do this now in Sound Forge 6.0 but 4.0 did not have the ability to burn CDs.
That way you get all of the cross fades and can now create a dedicated track for each song.

did that but...
 
i did the same thing previously (cut up the file into multiple tracks and reassembled in cd burner software) but it added artifacts. even though i set the time between tracks to zero little pop or clicks could be heard between the cd's tracks. perhaps i was just using bad software. could that be the case?

I have not had that problem so I can't say for sure that is why you are getting popping but I would guess that a bargain audio editor may or may not be able to create data that translated out to other apps accurately.
You get what you pay for so to speak.

Steinberg Wavelab
 
Makes that whole process super easy, using the audio monatge feature. I'm not sure if Wavelab Light has full functioned audio montage, but you should check it out!

Zero crossing point
 
You need to cut the track at what is called a "zero crossing point" - this will prevent the pop you describe. Most audio editing software has a feature to automatically select a zero crossing point within a selection of the file.

cheers,

Another German co, Magix
 
I got Magix Audio Cleaning Lab cheap ($20US) to clean up old LP's. It can do this track marking-automatically (silences) or manually. It has pretty good basic audio editing capabilities. It can import or record. It does it's work non-destructively, only after you are done do you export a file or burn to CD. The original is never touched.

And it is VERY good at cleaning up different kinds of noises. I have sliced up a song or a side of an LP in many pieces, some very tiny, to apply different levels of cleaning, or to zoom on in and remove a pop. It also has a 10 band EQ, a compressor, and an stereo imaging dohicky, and some effects, including pitch and time shifting. The noise stuff is: De-Clicker, De-Crackler, De-Noiser (take a sample background noise/hum print, and pull it out of the mix), and a De-Hisser.

They have a number of products like this. Maybe they have one without the cleaning stuff. Some are not cheap at all.

I don't really know much about the more standard stuff most people use, but I like this one.

DJDM,
HOw can you do this using SoundForge6? I have version6, placed some track markers in my mix and then when I burned it, it was still one track. Did I miss something? N E Help is appreciated!
