Mastering/CD Burning software question
I'm stepping out of my leagues a bit to venture into the Mastering forum, but I'm looking for some software and figured you folks would know where to turn.
I do a little bit of budget mastering on the side, basicly for clients who can't afford to go to the cheaper guys in town. I always tell them I'm not a professional mastering engineer, and that they're better off to spend a few hundred more bucks to go see the other guys, but I still end up doing an album every month or two. We're talking $300-400 jobs here. I'm just doing it in ProTools and running through the best outboard I've got.
I need some software that can allow me to drop track ID's into two tracks that are fading in/out of each other. Right now I'm only able to bounce each song down and then burn a CD, but there's always a gap between. I've just been using Toast (please don't flame me too hard... I know I know...) and the best I can do is set it to "0" seconds between tracks, but that obviously can't do a proper fade.
The catch? I don't want to spend much money. All I want is something where I can bring in the tracks, drop my track markers, and burn. I don't need to be able to edit, compress, or EQ or anything within it.
