Mastering Live Poetry Recording

Discussion in 'Mastering' started by southlakedave, Dec 30, 2002.

  1. I am a Recording and Live Sound Engineer. I am a MAC user and use Roxio(Adaptec) Jam CD Burning Software.
    I have a 4 Hour Poetry Event recorded. There is an Introduction of each poet before he/she recites a poem. There is applause after each poem followed immediately by the introduction of the next poet.
    I would like to master the CDs of these recordings with the audio of the introductions and applause in the pauses between tracks(instead of silence) and only the poems themselves within the tracks.
    I loaned my JAM manual to a friend who proceded to loose it. Roxio only offers technical support for 90 days after registation and I''ve had it more than a year, so they are no help.
    Does any one here know how I can do this?

    I've seen this sitting here a while, but I'm not sure I understand the dilemma. From what you've described, it sounds like you just need to hit "record" at the beginning of the program and hit "stop" at the end. Take it home, apply whatever tweaking the recording requires, BINGO ... done. Ummm ... but I'm guessing I'm missing something here. Perhaps you could clarify ???

    I personally after much thought if you gave me the project to do, have you put a sheet together with where exactly you want the tracs to start and stop and do a running CDR, from analog it and punch track advance manually for my master.

    SOS, he needs to flag each segment so he can have an addressable CD so you can skip to different parts. He just needs his tracks alighned and I would do it with SF CD arch. but then again, I can nail a punch up advance on the fly..hell that is what I get paid to do if it is continuous program anyway.

    That is what he wants, but on a MAC platform. Got any other ideas?

    Dude, I will do the whole thing for you for 100 bucks if provide a tracking chart with down to the frame (30fps) times. I can set my machine up top do this..manually or autop, I pretty competant at a one frame punch and with cdrw, I can fix it later if I miss a few. Up to 99 tracks is fine.
