My apologies in advance if this has been covered here. I have been away from the program and the forum for several months. I am also sitll only at 7.01, so if this is a bug that has been fixed in the interim, just tell me. If my technical understanding of what I am seeing is flawed, also just tell me. My issue:
In pursuance of remastering an album I recorded 17 years ago, I was setting all the track markers, CD text, ISRCs, etc. I’m using a combination of short gaps between tracks (longest only 2 seconds or so) and a couple of track splices for the very short spaces that I had originally sequenced to DAT in '94.
For some reason, and with no relationship to either the length of the gap or whether or not there is a splice in place, a little more than half of the tracks are displaying pre-gap and post-gap numbers (post-gap is always zero) as opposed to the asterisks. In addition, these numbers are not making any sense to me. There are a couple of pre-gaps listed as -1, and a couple listed as either 8 or 9. 8 or 9 what? -1 what? Certainly not seconds, and frames do not seem to make sense either.
My initial attempts at moving the markers does not seem to make any difference with these values.
There is nothing in the help menu about these pre or post-gap numbers.
Can anyone clue me in here?
I am running on XP, which I know is not supported, but I would at least like to know how these columns of data should be working before I write this off as running on the wrong platform…and I will be changing to Win7 shortly…just can’t do it today.
I have put together a couple of other CDs on this same system with WL7 and have not noticed this behavior before.
