I realize this thread is a few years old…but I’m just discovering it after tearing my hair out practically the same amount of time.
There’s a bunch of info here that I’ve picked up over the years and/or already knew…but the problem I’m having doesn’t seem to have a solution anywhere…at least that I can tell… and I’m hoping someone here can address it.
I’ll lay down the basics first and then describe my problem.
I’m using WaveLab Pro 9.5 on a 2019 iMac Retina 27", 3GHz 6 Core i5, 64GB RAM running Catalina 10.15.6.
I use Montage to make mix CDs for myself and friends.
I burn directly from the montage on a stand alone Super Drive.
I’m familiar with the CDText edit and its functions/fields.
In CD Text Edit, I give each disc a specific album name, usually a variant of the name of friend who the CD is going to.
In CD Text Edit, I rename or adjust EACH track’s name because sometimes the import name is kinda wonky.
In CD Text Edit, I edit the artist name on EACH track because…well… it’s a mix CD… and that’s kinda what mix CDs do.
Stay with me because here is my problem…
When I take the CD to the in car player (2014 Camry) ALL of the text edits I’ve made in CD Text Edit appear on the car display …except one. The name of the artist/performer is blank. Track is correct, album is correct… but no individual performer… NOW here’s the rub… if I make the artist/performer text the SAME across the entire CD… for example, each track is “The Beatles” (even though the track may actually be the Stones )… it shows up on my car display…on every track.
This makes ZERO sense to me… if the player is reading a field in one instance… WHY isn’t it reading it in another instance?
Someone… PLEASE help this simple minded music lover who just wants to share his love of music.
Thanks so much in advance.
