    Hi

    I need to send a demo of mine out to someone by email but I've lost the original audio file. The only copy I have of it is a cd that's been divided in separate tracks. Does anyone know an easy and effective way to take those tracks and save them as one long mp3 file? I've got a mac with Logic Pro 7 and Audacity. The only way I can think to do it off the top of my head is to snap each track next to eachother in Logic and bounce to mp3. I've got a feeling this might sounds rubbish though, even with a tiny bit a of crossfade between them. Does anyone have any better ideas?

    Cheers :2thumbs:

    Thats a fine way to do it, if you zoom in to each join, and make sure the files are matched up perfectly there shouldnt be a problem, as long as theyre not over lapping.

    steinberg sequencer...
    import cd all tracks...
    chose to load all tracks in
    the same channel...
    use glue tool...
    export...

    should take you all of about
    5 mins and that includes
    the time it takes to rip the
    cd...

    there's a million ways to do this (as with f***ing everything in prod) but i would use an audio editor, open the first file, cursor to the end, copy and paste, repeat until done. this has worked for me before, and no bouncing.
