I’m asking whether somebody can help me with an issue I have to do with ripping from a set of CDs I have.
I have a set of classical CD’s (Mahler/Bernstein) and, in each CD, new track numbers occur in the middle of movements. For one CD, for example, there are 5 continuous movements but 19 tracks.
If I play the CD on a “standard” CD player, the one attached to our stereo set, there is no audible transition between the tracks, as should be be the case; the music flows continuously. But if I play the CD on my computer, or rip from the CD and then play the tracks back without gaps, little gaps are heard and some music is lost.
This occurs on two computers I’ve tried, both with different hardware CD/DVD players. It occurs on each of 3 difference programmes. It occurs on any setting I’ve tried for “gaps” or format. It occurs during playback or after ripping.
It would appear that there is something on these CDs which makes computer CD/DVD players unable to reproduce the sound accurately.
I would be grateful for any suggestions as to what could be causing this problem and any possible solutions.
