I have a few q's that have been causing endless frustration and affecting productivity. Any help of suggestions deeply appreciated. 1. If one were to take an out from the pre running phantom power and absent-mindedly plug it into a DI (MOTU 828) with the phantom switch ON, would that damage either piece? 2. Sometimes when I burn CDs, a Ghetto blaster can't read the indexes, while you can on any computer media player. Why? I asked this question before thinking it was about the burner (MAC) but somebody mentioned the problem wasn't likely the burner but the marker. I just put all the tracks into toast and set the seconds, is there way to set markers which CD players can read within the mixing software (DP 4.5)? OR something else that I'm missing? (IE not enough lead in time?) Or maybe I need different CD burning software for MAC? (Well, that was a bunch of questions) 3. As mentioned in a previous post, I am producing a sh*tload of dialogue CDs. For mastering, I have been bouncing out the mixed tracks reimporting them as stereo tracks into a new file, then mastering through a Finalizer and Brent Averill, recording a new track and then bouncing out again using a little of the built-in MW limiter. Just wondering if there is any advantage or disadvantage to doing the first step at all and simply record into a new stereo track in the same file. It would save some time to avoid it and if I missed something in the mix its right there also saving time. Well, is it a big no-no for some reason that I haven't thought of?
