I’m not sure what you’re doing but the montage doesn’t by default make new files, it just non-destructively edits your source files.
The audio editor is a destructive environment but as you found out, there are no CD/album layout tools and options. I work in the montage nearly 100% of the time. The only time a new file is made is when I render new files after I dial in the sounds. There are a few other special processes that create a ew file such as SuperClips, or if the montage is a different sample rate than the source file(s) but generally speaking, the montage will not create a new file when you load in a file unless it really needs to.
100% of the time, my montages are simply referencing existing files, never making new copies.
I thought I was working in the montage section, but I guess I was in the audio editor. I just opened up a new blank project, and I dragged my hour long file into that, thinking it was a montage, then I added chapter markers, but I guess I was doing that to an audio file. I need to just go straight to an Audio Montage next time. The CD burned fine and imported into iTunes, which is what I wanted. BUT even though I thought I had filled out all the album and individual track info, it still didn’t transfer to iTunes. The tracks came up named “Track1, Track2” etc. So I had to manually enter that into itunes.
Is there a section in WaveLab that I can enter that info so my CDs can import with the track info? Do I have to have IRSC codes for that?
