How do you use this? I can find no documentation or other howtos on the net and all attempts to figure it out have only led to frustration. Here's what I'm doing. Adding a bunch of .wav files (this seems to work) and then I try to divide them into tracks. No luck there. Regardless of where I put the cursor, it just tells me I can't add a track marker there, or an index marker, or a pre-gap, or anything! I also tried adding the files one at a time and adding a track marker to the end before I insert the next file. Can't add track marker there. What am I doing wrong?

To select only certain parts of the project, select, Export, and choose export ranges to multiple audio files. You can then order the files in any order you need importing them in the order into gcdmaster The way I actually do it, is to create snapshots of the selections. I normally keep everything in the main poject until the end, save the project and then cut the pieces I do not need, order them, and save this compilation as a new snapshot. THEN CHANGE TO THE SNAPSHOT WITHOUT SAVING THE MAIN PROJECT. It is easier for me to maintain the complete project in ardour, and then export the whole session to gcdmaster.

Thanks for the input. One

Thanks for the input. One question, though. I was playing around with this and one thing I couldn't figure out was how to export just parts of and Ardour project in this manner. For example, if you record multiple versions of each song, and you just want to pick and choose certain versions to include in the export, and also, how to change the order of the songs after the recording is done.

It is possible to create the master directly in gcdmaster, but it has lots of limitations, that you will not encounter if you go the ardour - gcdmaster route. A disk made with gcdmaster is a proper red book CD, as it checks all the prerequisites before burning. I always use the process described in the link I sent you. (The example is actually a project I was working on at the time ;-)

This should point you in the right direction

Oh, I see. So gcdmaster is

Oh, I see. So gcdmaster is only for doing the actual burning? That explains it, thanx. I'll give this a try.
