Why not use CD Architect?
Originally produced by Sonic Foundry, now a Sony product, I've used CD
Architect (and Sound Forge) since version 3. The beauty of CD Architect
is that you don't need to do anything while digitizing the source.
Simply open the file in CD Architect and drop the CD track ID's wherever
you want. You don't need the Redbook required 2 Seconds of silence which
is why I used it in the first place; to make CD's of live recordings
without having to separate the songs by 2 seconds of silence.
If you want to do any editing or clean-up, you need to do that
beforehand. CD Architect is not a comprehensive editing program.
