I have tried the DVD-A function in Samplitude. It is limited to 48k, which
was a disappointment - I wanted to make 96k discs to share with a friend who
is big into hi-rez media. I think Sequoia does do that. DVD-A seems like a
dead thing, unfortunately, so I'm curious why you are concerned with it,
Tom. For surround productions?
There is a free version of Nero that works on W7. Best to get Nero 9
Essentials from a free-ware site (CNET?), as the latest version has some
annoyances. It is good enough for data discs, and has a verification

Subject: Re: [ARSCLIST] what are people using these days to burn DVD-Audio
and regular CD-audio discs?
Sorry to be late for the party but among several projects including helping
to honour Neil Muncy's wishes about his "stuff", I've been swamped.
I have always burned CDs out of Samplitude...from the days it was called
"Red Roaster"...as in burning red-book CDs. For several iterations, it has
had a Burn DVD Audio button next to the Burn CD button--and although I'm
usually a very curious person, I have not done that, despite having one
personal project I'd consider doing that with (two organs, big church, two
great organists, 4 track 1/2-inch master).
So, I split the burning chores between Samplitude for audio discs and it
handles the CD Text reasonably well, including showing it on the timeline
once you've got it entered.
The only thing I use Nero for is burning CD/DVD/BD ROMs--as in delivering
files to clients for computer use only. I bought the suite thinking I'd try
other pieces of it and then when it came time to upgrade to Suite 10, I
continued. I did need to upgrade to version 10 when I went to W7-64 bit, two
years ago now.
Before I started with Red Roaster, I found a bunch of horrid programs to
burn CDs. One of the best (and I sadly forget its name) was a text-driven
program, but it made nice CDs. That was in 1998, probably. I forget when I
started with Red Roaster, but I'm pretty certain it was on the Windows 95/98
machine which I got early in 1998. It might have been from then or within a
year or so. I was certainly using it in 1999. That was a 333 MHz machine
with perhaps a Pentium II? It was my first personally owned Dell, starting a
trend through 16 personal/family machines and several more I bought for
