I use Cool Edit Pro to split my WAV files into tracks and it works 90% of the time, but sometimes there's a little "blip" at the track change. Everybody I ask about this tells me about "snapping", so I adjust it and it doesn't fucking work. Everyone says it works fine for them.

Is this a common problem? Should I download CD Wave and try that?

I assume these are sector boundary errors?

IIRC, if you zoom in enough - even with snapping on - you can wind up creating a SBE.

Umm, sure.

In terms of SBEs, don't most burning programs take care of this? I've never had an issue in Jam...

Most are supposed to; many don't (like, say, every single fucking program I've used throughout the years). Thankfullly, I usually do the one-big-wave-CUE approach when indexes matter, i.e. with segue material.

Now that I know about SBEs, I generally run SHNTool before burning just in case.

Snap to zero crossing always works for me.

I'm using CD WAVE right now, and it seems to be working. It's just a bit of a pain in the ass to use.

That would prevent any pops/clicks, but you still could get gaps that shouldn't be there. You just wouldn't notice them as there wouldn't be any large amplitude changes.

"Trader's Little Helper" is the best tool I've found for fixing any track split I've made:

I wanna cut where I wanna cut & this lil' doo-dad saves the day...

...pretty handy for other stuff as well.

Haha. OR you can just make sure the number of samples in any track is divisible by 588 (44100/75).

I never knew that our Windows-using friends had to deal with such dilemmas. My condolences to you all.

I've heard of it for years, but never experienced it. Well, many years ago (1998) when my buddy got his first CD burner, I had him burn the first run of LALC. Sure enough, there were pops between the tracks. That said, I don't know if it was his (crappy) burner, some issue with WAV files created on the Mac, or SBEs.

Lately the only burning I've done on the PC has been whole images.

As I type this from a PC...
