Dear Brandon,
    May I make the following suggestion as another answer to your problem.
Insert a digital delay-line between (a separate) analogue-to-digital
converter, and the CD burner. (The delay-line should preferably be the type
which gives a display that moves from left to right as the delay is
implemented, so you get a visual display of - say - announcements between
pieces of music; but this feature will often cost twentyfold more).
Personally, I find about three seconds of delay is optimum. Then, listen to
the signal going *into* the delay-line, and you have three seconds in which
to react to the change in subject-matter, so you can press a track-increment
button at the correct place.
    Another suggestion is to go to CD-RW, and clone the result to
non-rewritable CD when you have completed a CD's-worth. Mistakes are less
expensive that way!
Peter

I need something along the lines of Masterlist CD that will allow me to
insert
track numbers into an alreay existing and already mixed piece.  Example: I
have
a 58-minute oral history interview I digitized from reel tape and my client
wants me to insert track numbers every, say, couple of minutes as a way to
assist researchers.  More of an indexing situation than individual *tracks*
but
I think you know what I mean.  The piece still needs to play through without
interuptions.  I read that Digidesign has discontinued Masterlist CD and, as
far as I can tell, Toast won't allow me to do this unless I give it a "raw"
(i.e. unmixed) feed.  And that doesn't do me a lot of good.  I need to be
able
to define tracks at will into a file that I have already mixed.  Any
suggestions.....?
