CD 101 - song start/end markers on crossfaded tracks?
Sorry for the "nubie" question but - is there an industry standard, or at least most common approach, for setting song start and end markers when tracks on a CD are crossfaded?
I don't believe Red Book allows a song END marker to be later in time than the following song's START marker, so no matter where you place them SOMETHING on two crossfaded tracks will be cutoff when shuttling.
I don't run into crossfades very often but have it on a current project. How is this typically done?
Yes, it seems the most common approach is to put the marker at the start of the fade in to the next song and not worry about the fadeout of the previous song. That makes sense since someone skipping around would likely play through the crossfaded songs but want to hear the start of each.
The next question is how to measure/document track times when the end of one song overlaps the start of the next? What shows up on the CD track time display won't match the actual run time of each separate song.
