    MLCD messed them up too. IMHO the only workable choice is to "Save
    playlist as sound file" in SDII and then bring that new file into your
    disc program. In the case of Jam, this may raise the question if track
    indexing discussed elsewhere in this very thread. MLCD and, I think,
    WBP both handle this just fine.

    I do. For some reason back in the thread this is not what I perceived the
    issue to be when exporting to Jam or MLCD after the files had been put together
    in Sound Designer (all the indexes and PQ complete) and someone didn't want to
    deal with the extra 2 secs of inbetween track space.

  3. I recently did a project, burned in Jam, that had inter-track sound. If you
    play through from the previous track, you hear the sound while the clock counts
    negative, then the selection starts at 0:00. But if you skip to the track, it
    starts right at 0:00, no preceding sound. If I remembered what I did to make
    that happen (it seemed obvious at the time), I'd describe that, but all I can
    say is that it did exactly the thing that seems to be the hot topic here and
    elsewhere in this very thread.

    I've never once had MLCD mess up a SD playlist and I've owned the
    software since it first came out and used it on a lot of different
    Macs. And you wouldn't believe some of the lengthy, complex playlists
    I've had just for one chapter of a talking book. (Not the best v/o
    talent.)

    One thing to remember, you have to save your changes in SD before they
    will be changed in MLCD.

    That's when you edit the file to shorten the applause to something
    that feels comfortable when you're not at the concert.

    Okay, to clarify, MLCD tends to mess up if you try to do crossfades
    between Masterlist items when those masterlist items are SDII
    playlists. Or, as mentioned earlier, if you go back and make changes
    to the SDII playlist after you've already brought the "old" version of
    the playlist into MLCD. It's definitely possible to get the two to
    play together, but I've always found it worlds easier and more reliable
    to do all the crossfades and edits in SDII and then generate new,
    linear files to bring into MLCD.

    and then you have to "Update Item" in MLCD too ...
    but otherwise I love MLCD/SD2 as a combo

    We've been given Jam for a studio refurbishment,
    & I just don't get the hang of it
