"name field" in cd tab window

Hi,

In the cd-tab, there is the “cd text”-field, thats what comes up on a car stereo for example.
But there is also a field called just “name”, what is that parameter and where does it show up? Does the audio file I am working with get renamed on my harddrive if I change text in that field?

Thanks

Hi,

The CD Track name(s) can be the song name if you like
the CD Track name(s) can be the CD-Text name if you like

  1. First Song
  2. Second Song
  3. Third Song
    e.t.c

with the CD-Text dialog

  1. First Song
  2. Second Song
  3. Third Song

CD Track names will show only if you use CD-Text
but if you use ISRC code for every CD Track then this
info will show in CD database like GraceNote, Free DB e.t.c

Hmm I am sorry i dont understand :S

Ok,

Try with the WaveLab 9.pdf

The only info in the manual about that field is this;

"Name

Shows the track name. To change the name, double-click in the corresponding cell, and enter a new value."

:S

I think the real question is does the “Name” field that you show in the CD-Tab have any correlation to anything else, or is this just for internal WaveLab use.

I’ve actually never noticed it until now. I just rely on CD Track Maker names and CD-Text track names. This other “Name” field doesn’t seem to have a lot of real-world use. I’ve ignored it for over 5 years now!

The names in the CD tab are also the CD track start/splice marker names. If you change in one tab, it should change in the other tab. Make a change and go back and forth between the CD tab and Marker tab to verify that.

Ah, this is what I thought would happen but I was pretty sure I tried and tested it and that’s wasn’t what happened. Now that I go back and try again, this is indeed what happens. I think 99.9% of the time the “Name” and CD-Text would be the same but I’m sure there are special use cases.
