    I am after a bit of software that will let me mix my own cd. I want to be able to take a track, match beats to produce and add effects to end up with a seemless album.
    Any ideas?

    Apple just released a package called GarageBand. It's very inexpensive and I've seen a couple of reviews that gave great feedback on it.

    Also, there are plenty of packages from Sonic Foundry (which is apparently a Sony company now). Take a look at its website for the different software that is available.

    You want to mix what exactly? Tracks on your computer? You'll need some "DJ" software for that, but it's all useless and unless all the files you have are uncompressed WAV's, then I wouldn't recommend making a CD from them.

    Traktor is very cool for that kind of thing.

    WTF, maybe i don't get what you're saying, but wav's are essentially cd tracks.

    No, wavs are uncompressed data files. CD tracks are a completely different format.

    What I was saying is if the files are mp3/ogg/wma/whatever, what's the point in making a CD from them? Making CD's from compressed files is a bad idea.

    Ah, but can't you compress the wav into MP3 then make a CD from them?-

    Why would you do that? Just burn wav directly to cd. Compressing it just makes it sound bad, and wastes time... :confused:
