Pardon my inexperience... I want to "master" my own project for now... is there a way to produce a red book compliant CDR with less than 2 sec. gaps between tracks? (Old guys - remember LZep's Heartbreaker/Livin'Lovin'Maid segue??). Can this be done in compliance with Red Book. I'm using Sonic Foundry's CD Architect and it seems to require 2s.
Coming from the Macintosh world, I can give you my experience.
I started out with a USB CD burner using Toast 4.1, which would let you choose a time range between 0-6 seconds before burning your audio; however, even at 0 seconds there'd be a minute gap. So I blamed the software, and tried out Adaptec's Jam software which would let you do crossfades and such...except I discovered it wouldn't work with USB burners (at least, not the one I was using). So then I blamed my hardware. However, when I picked up Toast 5, I miraculously discovered it wrote CD's with no gaps between tracks, using the same burner I've had all along. Which made me take note that I was writing CD's with "disc-at-once"--which incidentally I thought I was doing all along.
In summary of the tale, Roxio Toast Titanium 5 can do it on a Mac, but I dunno what works on a PC. <grin> But just check if whatever package you use a) supports your CD burner (there's usually a compatability list on the software or hardware mfg's website) and b) supports disc-at-once writing.
Hope that was a little better than non-help,
