he's saying the only thing that burns real PMCDs are sonic studios/sonic solutions rigs.

and audition 3 burns fine "master CDRs" for replication (it does disc at once/redbook compatible)

Most software will burn a CD. It's CU errors you have to worry about, so you need a Plextor drive or similar with error checking software.

I think Ben is saying that you need a Plextor drive and/or a similar error checking software and drive that will let you check for error's on the master you've burnt. There is no guarantee of a error free master no matter what you use.

RB Cd's can be rejected for many reasons. Defective Media, Defective Drive, The Software it was burned on got discombobulated etc...

So the only way to know how your master is going to fair at the plant is to test it for error's.

It's also a good idea to send 2 copies of the master to a plant.

thnx Tom....i kinda knew that but since i work with Architect and this generic drive, I don' think i've had that many problems....i am just changing the sequence order and burning new discs...no pq code editing or, isrc coding or text, none f that ....too little to do for CD Arch. , but this Audition thing should work with relatively no problems plextor or not right??....and yes, copy/back ups always a good idea.....

I use CD Architect for making my redbook discs, I have A3 also but laying out a CD there is a bit clumsy, CDA is so much easier. I can't remember specifically what it was that made me shy away from it, but I just remember going "forget it, I'm good with CD Architect."

I don't understand what you mean by:

"no pq code editing or, isrc coding or text, none f that ....too little to do for CD Arch."

B'cus CD Architect does all of that. I think CD Architect might be a little bit more picky when it comes to drives than Audition though. I seem to remember having to download some kind of file to be able to use my old Plextor 8/20 (SCSI).

this is all very accurate information. (coming from someone who tested and tech-supported ME's burning masters for replication at a plant for years)

plextor is usually a good drive, with the software or without. any drive can go sour though after enough use or with enough dust. Including two identical masters should be second nature. only takes another 5 minutes and can save you loads of time and stress later.

believe it or not, toast and nero are almost always your best bets for burning masters, especially nero for including cd text. many high end dvd/audio softwares just don't pass our tests for various reasons.
