I don't understand why you want to do this project this way. Just pay someone to sit at a computer and rip the CDs into the hard drive using either Exact Audio Copy or dBPowerAmp CD Ripper. It will take someone about a week to do 200 CDs, maybe less if the discs aren't in bad shape and can thus rip at maximum speeds. Set a person up with 2 or 3 computers and someone with mad skills can get this done in 2-3 days. You'd then need to combine the contents of all the rips into one place (do not rip across a network unless you want SLOW ripping speeds). -- Tom Fine ----- Original Message ----- From: "James Roth" <[log in to unmask]> To: <[log in to unmask]> Sent: Tuesday, December 15, 2015 11:11 AM Subject: Re: [ARSCLIST] separating tracks using Sound Forge 9 or 11.

The now obsolete Peak on Mac does that. I keep a legacy version for that reason among others. It isn't hard, so there should be something that will do it on Windows! <L> Lou Judson Intuitive Audio 415-883-2689 On Dec 15, 2015, at 6:16 AM, James Roth <[log in to unmask]> wrote: > I WAS HOPING there was a command in Sound Forge to separate the tracks automatically if there was > 3 or more seconds of silence. > Wouldn't that be nice?
