The recording is on DAT from an LP. The music in question is Blaze of Glory by Joe Jackson.
Each track flows into the next when listened to on the DAT but when playing the album FLACs on my NAS there is a 2 second silence between tracks. This is spoiling my enjoyment as you can imagine.
In the tutorial on splitting a recording into separate tracks you give this advice…
Sometimes songs on live recordings flow together. If you want to split a live recording into songs but want to maintain an uninterrupted flow from song to song on the CD you need to have burning software that is capable of burning a CD in “disk-at-once” (DAO) mode, and is capable of setting the “gap” or “pause” between tracks to 0 seconds.
That suggests Audacity lacks that feature. I understand that. If I bought Sound Forge v10 would it give me the capability to make the music seamless?
Thanks for your reply. It’s a bit more technical than I imagined. I’ll explain how I got to where I am now…
After recording the whole album I added a point label at the start of each track. I then added Meta Data and then chose Export Multiple to create a FLAC file for each track.
I’m playing the FLACs from a Synology NAS through a Yamaha RX-A3010 amp using a Yahama app for track selection. It’s playing the music this way that is causing a 2 second gap between tracks even though I have not specified that anywhere in the process. I’m struggling to understand where that 2 second gap is stored. In the FLAC file I guess. Or is it within the Yamaha app?
That’s the conclusion I’ve come too having researched it. What seens to be the problem is buffering the next track in readiness to be played. I’m sure the Synology 212j has the capability and everything is through ethernet, not wireless. Well, apart from the iPad.
I’ll see if there are any alternative apps but the Yamaha is nice as it allows me to control volume etc.
