I’ve created an Audio Montage for my new album, complete with all the plugin processing I want to use.
I have set out all my track markers, but instead of using track start and end markers (apart from the first and last track of course) I have used “splice markers” between my tracks.
Where I wanted a longer gap between songs I just pushed the next clip along which created a space then stuck the splice marker at the start of the next track, knowing that WL7 would render this silence into the file of each song so that my download album tracks play the same as my physical CD’s.
Everything passed the CD checker as valid for a Red Book CD.
When I go to render this into a new montage (which I do before I create a CD (as I’m using a lot of processing) I tell the preferences to copy the track markers to the new montage. Then I press render.
This is where things go wrong, and I’m really confused!
The newly rendered audio montage now fails the CD checker because the original “splice markers” have now been replaced by track start and end markers - with the track “end markers” being placed within the boundary of the new regions at the point where the original clip ended, the silence has been rendered as part of the new file, it’s just WL7 has kept my Splice Markers so now the new audio montage fails the red book standard.
I tried rendering with “audio in pauses” switched on but it makes no difference, plus I don’t think this is the issue.
I hope you can understand what I’m saying here - the file lengths are correct, the “gaps” I created between songs albeit very short, are getting correctly rendered as audio (as I have an active dither plugin) but WL7 is creating an “end marker” at the exact point where the original “real” file length ends, then there’s a bit more of the file (which was the original silent gap, then there’s the start marker for the next song!!
I’m using render as multiple sources “between track markers” which I’m presuming means splice markers also, is this the problem, is it treating the end of the physical audio file as an “end maker” instead of the place where the “splice marker” is - surely between track markers must also mean between two splice makers as well as they are a type of track marker, no?
Sorry if this sounds complex - but I’m hoping someone can help and save me hours of having to create a new set of track markers.
