The comments have been great. But they've left me with some questions.
I have 79:54 of material at this stage, which includes fade transitions,
but no actual intervals.
The duplicator I spoke to told me that a full 80 min CD can lead to
problems in the duplication process - that the closer you get to the
middle, the greater the potential tracking problems. That comment was
the genesis of my question. Should I be concerned? Can this be mitigated
by a higher quality blank? Should I expect a percentage of CDs to
exhibit playback problems on the first couple of tracks, and if so, are
we talking about 5% or .05%?
I did consider running a compression in Audition as Lou suggested. But I
know that to shrink an image file by an odd figure can leave some
unpleasant artifacting, and I assume the same may be true for audio
files as well. If I bought myself 20 seconds by squeezing the tracks,
will that prove to be problematic? It probably would be for those with
If a person with an older player not designed to handle an 80 minute
disc attempts to play one, what would be the result? Would he not be
able to hear the beginning, the end, or would he just have tracking
