What do you recommend...I need to burn CDs that will be going out for mass duplication and want to make sure I don't screw it up. Thanks!
Plextools doesn't work on a Mac G5 (probably does on the newer MacIntels running Win I believe...) but Plextor burners do work with Macs (mine does at least!)
Talking about software there is not much around.
Toast for basic tasks.
Jam which I believe has not been updated in a long time ( and I am not sure they ever will).
Waveburner (but you need to buy Logic as it is not longer sold separately)
Bias Peak 5 I believe burns from within the app (haven't had the chance to use it yet)
Sonic Studio Premaster CD or Soundblade (probably the most advanced of the lot as it offers DDP support and 2 stereo tracks)
These are the ones I can think of, I am sure I have missed one or two......
