    Hi all, quick question for you: I'm looking for some CD sequencing software that will let me put seamless transtions between songs on a CD. For instance, I want the feedback at the end of track 2 to ring out into the intro of track 3 all while changing the CD track from 2 to 3 without any pops or skips. Sometimes I can use cubase, make one long track, cut the tracks where i want to split them (on null points of the waveform) and then use nero (turning off the 2 second pause between songs) to string them together. This works about 40% of the time. I need software that I can make the entire CD how I want it and then just burn it directly to the CD. Any thoughts?? Thanks.

    One word..... Wavelab!

    The Audio Montage features are top class and allow you to do just about anything you could possibly imagine to do for a CD!

    In fact Wavelab allows you to do CD other words you can add a video to the audio CD for use in a computer! Pretty cool stuff I tell ya!

    Opus :D

    Wavelab is indeed great stuff. Can't go wrong with that tool.

    I believe that Nero Burning Rom also allows to specify a "zero gap" in between songs (standard is 2 seconds) in which case there should not be any interruption in the flow from one tune to the next ...

    I have not tried this myself but I know others here have done it for e.g. with live-CD's.

    fontenel: You can get the results you want by modifying your current methodology only *VERY* slightly.

    Instead of cutting up your tracks in Cubase, just export the whole thing as ONE 16/44 stereo .wav, then load it into Nero and do the track slicing in Nero itself - Drag the .wav into the audio CD list, then right click-->Properties and go to the splits/indices tab. The graphical display is so painless to use it's almost funny. :D And the transitions are seamless anywhere, since the source file is a single .wav and Redbook audio is a sequential format (The track indices are stored seperately - they don't interfere with the audio)
