I’m trying to complete an album of solo material in the studio and the engineer and I don’t know how to create a hidden track before the first track. He has a Mac with either Jam or Toast as burning options. We tried unsuccessfully to create a a track in the pre gap area of the CD, before track 1. I have a PC, and Nero says the same thing that Jam and Toast did: you can’t have more than 2 or 3 seconds in the pre gap space before track 1. The track I’m putting as hidden is 6:46 and I read about an album that had 9 minutes before track 1. There are many others.
So far we’ve combined the pre track and track 1 into one audio file with some space between the songs. Should we split them? And what software on a PC or Mac would allow us to do this, and HOW? thanks.
