Remember those mixed tapes you lovingly recorded for friends and family over the years? Today they're a thing of the past. Mixed CDs are where it's at in 2003. But chances are, unless you run with a pack of music-crazed teenagers, you have little idea how to burn your own. Here to help is the ultimate guide to recording audio CDs from any source, be it an existing CD or a scratched LP. While the book's focus is exhaustive—covering the range of CD-R and audio restoration software, CD-R and CD-R/RW drives, audio file formats, and audio sources available today—the information is delivered in easily digestible, jargon-free chunks. A troubleshooting chapter describes how to deal with some of CD burning's most common bugaboos: long silences between tracks, a CD that works fine in the computer but fizzles on the stereo, and more. Also included are new chapters on capturing and recording digital audio streams and creating discs that include both audio and video.
