I do all my tracking and mixing in my 32xd. I am looking at this program for finish mastering and making a red book compatible master. I would import the wav. files from the 32xd into this program. Any thoughts?

Best damn CD writing program ever made.
Now if they would just make a Mac version all would be right in the universe.

Can't beat Nero 6 in my opinion. Even better is using Wavelab to burn your final red book master.

cool, thanks for the opinions. Has NE one used much of the mastering plug-inson the program? I am specifically interested in EQ and Compressors. I would only use the mastering plug-insfor a little extra sheen at the very end, as most of the effects on tracks are done on my 32xd in the box.
P.S. Sorry about the double post back there. Don't know what happened. :roll:

Nero 6 and Wavelab are my choices after you pass the big workstations, Sequoia, Sonic, Pyramix, etc...

The Best?????

I don't know abou that. there are a lot of good ones out there.

well, you could always write a program in MAX/MSP that could greate random trackmarks, random fades and even random burning speeds... how cool!!

...random level... even cooler!!
...random satisfaction... now we are really getting somewhere!!!

I'm totally into the MAX random CD mastering program.
The clients will ask me "Can you make me a kick ass rock master" and then i will answer "hmm... maybe... you can stop by some time and then we can see if my program is up to it".

Maybe that's the trick to incorporate contrast's in the pop industry??

Someone mentioned NERO for Red Book Cd making. Isn't that program pretty cheap (I think like 90 bucks). Does it offer any of the fade in and mastering applications like the CD architect.

surprised

I was pretty surprised with Nero 6.
Hey, I hated that demo styled Nero 5, unlogical GUY, etc.
I just hope that at the plant they will be able to read my cd text info, like ISRCS, track names., artist It is my first master with Nero. 6.
Bye bye Masterlist and scsi burner.
Any experiences with Nero 6?
Thanks

I think Sony CD Architect should work just fine.
If you are thinking about buying it be sure to get the bundle.
Sound Forge/CD Architect/Noise Reduction bundle. It cost same as CD Architect alone. All full versions.

You can get it at AudioMidi.com. $250
You'll have to check other sites like Sweetwater to see if they also sell this package.
