Just drag and drop the MP3s files you want in a project.
It will ask if you want to decode it to WAV while “dropping” it in the project (there’s also a box to choose if you want to be asked again or not).
I don’t decode it to WAV unless it’s corrupted (another advantage over Nero). If you have a slow CPU, then decode first.
(Green = MP3 / Black = WAV)
Take a look at the message about the pauses between MP3s.
There will always be pauses between them because of the MP3 format.
Once arranged, press “Burn”.
It will ask you again if you want to decode first. You choose.
Probably it will show a message if you are using 80min CDRs (almost always).
You can set a default behaviour for decoding always or never in the CD-Manager and CD-Writer Program Parameters.
- Does anyone use the track editor first ? I’m sort of confused about the amlitude settings.
It’s easy for manual settings.
You just choose the amplitude you want in the box below the waves. It’s made on the fly. The original file is never touched.
To do it automatically: Extras -> Adjust Amplitude (whole project).
You can see the maximum and average volumes.
But Feurio’s normalization is based on peaks, so probably it’s not as good as Nero’s (if Ahead programmed it correctly).
For info in 0,1% settings and so on, press F1.
- Any other things I should know ?
I’m evaluating Fuerio, but I’m still at a loss, after looking at several web sites where they study this, why Fuerio is better than let’s say Media Jukebox, which has a unique way if burning MP3s.
It appears that Fuerio decodes the MP3s into wav files, then burns to a audio CD.
No, Feurio decodes to WAV first if you choose it. I usually do it on the fly, because the quality is exactly the same.
To delete the silences between MP3s is easy in Feurio.
First set “No pauses between track marks” in the project’s “Settings”. Then go to Track Editor, zoom to the silence and press “Action” -> “Set end position” to select where you want the song to be finished…
What you hear with Track Manager or Wave Player is what you’re going to hear in the CD.
PS: “Set end position” cuts the final of the track if that track is one MP3 or WAV file. If the songs were ripped in one long WAV, “Set end position” will change the end position, without cutting out anything.
Also there’s nothing faster to divide a long MP3 in several tracks. Just press “Split Tracks (linked)” to divide the song.
