    Quality Of Cd

    The project of making a CD from all GSO users has inspired me to make
    my on CD for family members, etc.
    My question is: With all the memory these songs need, what is the
    limit of songs whioch can be used on each level of burning?
    i.e. BEST; 12 X; 2X.
    Thanks,

    Gary Mosse

    not exactly sure what the question is, but, the memory needed to create the songs in gpo has nothing to do with the amount of music on a cd or the speed at which it burns. the size of a cd is constant - 700mb, a little over an hour of music. the 12x, 8x, etc. is the speed at which your cd software and hardware will write the cd. all CD audio uses the same amount of space regardless of how it was created.
    once you have finished the songs in gpo, gos, jabb, etc., mix them down (bounce) to single stereo files with a sampling rate of 44.1k, and then you can fill up the cd with a little more than an hour of music.
    hope this helps.

    Are you asking if the speed that you burn the CD at has an effect on the number of songs you can put on a CD?

    If that's the case, don't worry. It doesn't have any impact. It just affects the speed at which the CD is made, and possibly the number of errors. The newer drives don't appear to produce nearly as many errors though, especially with the buffers between the data being sent and the laser carving them on the disc. If you have a fast enough PC and you aren't running any apps on it except for the burning software when you make the disc you'll be fine at any speed. Just make sure the speed you're burning at (ie 52x) doesn't exceed the rating for the CD-R media (ie 40x). That's when you'll definately need to adjust your speed.

    CD-R's will hold around 700MB of data, which translates to about 80 minutes of music.

    Don't forget to set your bit size to 16bit. Higher quallity audio won't play on a standard CD player (ie 24x48 or 32x96) The only one guaranteed to work on all CD players is 16X44.1
