Question About Importing a CDA Wave File into Sonoris DDP Creator

This might not be an issue at all but wanted to ask as I'm new to DDP Creator.

Basically I import my Wave from CD Architect which has all of the track breaks, ISRC codes, etc. included but I noticed that the ISRC code for the first song is alligned with the 2 second break before the first song. Is it just assumed that the break is attached to the first track so it's all the same?

How to Make a DDP From My Sony Architect 5.2 File?

Hey, I've done some small time mastering for some local bands and friends and have delivered the masters in CDR format but now I'm thinking of expanding and trying to get some internet global business. I realize that a lot of clients will ask for DDP images but I really don't know that much about it. I don't have a MAC so it doesn't look like I can get Wave Editor (the cheap option which I hear great things about). How about Sonoris for roughly $250? Does the same job but for PC?

Well explained but have some questions:

What is the file you receive?
I always thought "making sure all tracks flow together as a playlist" was part of standard mastering.

I'm still using a DDP as my main compressor/limiter. I've had this thing for about 5 years now and have not had any problems. And I know there's others that'll make it look as if you're using this thing like a Alesis 3630. What I'm wondering is, will I need to upgrade to a better compressor or have an additional compressor added? My other's are software based. And Personally, I like the DDP with it's array of presets and other useful stuff. It sounds good too. So what should it be?
