Try Audio Cleraning Lab by Magix- I paid about $ 50 for mine at Best Buy.
My old version worked at over 4 seconds. Drop in 5 or 6 second silent
breaks in your original signal. Magix will automatically make index points
when you invoke the proper spell: go to CD along the top bar. The drop
down menu offers "Set Track Marker Automatically." Do so. Make your CD
through the program, also simple.
I haven't yet tried the upgrade, so I'm not certain that 4+ seconds still
trigers the indexer.
