Gnome CD Master

Hi! So far, I have been using K3B for burning CD's but after reading the post by Quentin in http://www.64studio.com/node/290 I think that GDC master is what I need for burning audio CD's from my ardour projects. However, I'm having some difficulties with it. To tell the truth, I'm lost with the "configure devices" window. In K3B my burning device was detected with no problem, but here my device list is blank. Rescanning doesn't help. I've tried to add a device but it doesn't work. I don't know exactly what I have to type in the "device", "vendor" and "product", let alone the device settings. According to K3B my burning device is TSTTcorp CDDVDW SH-S203B. I've tried device: 0; Vendor: TSST; Product: CDDVDW SH-S203B to no avail. The device list reports "status not available" for such device. Any help? I'll keep on trying anyway. Pablo

Hi and thank you! OK, I see that the .wav files can't be tagged. But I can't understand how on earth a CD created by me shows strange names for the track and album. Anyway, if I can't tagg an album created from .wav files, how can I do it otherwise? Have a good time Pablo

Yes, you are right. Wav tagging is not possible. GCDMaster uses a .toc or .cue file to import these, and it gets included in the sub channel information with the error correction info on the Redbook CD master. This is used for CD text enabled music players.

Tagging WAV

I don't think ID3 tags work on wav files, it breaks the container. I have heard of limited tagging for .wav but ID3 is for mp3/ogg and the like. But if there are fields in GCD Master (I am not familiar with it) it looks like it should accept those.

That would be great!

I don't know how to tag the albums. It's all very weird. I have tried with a export.wav from ardour (30 seconds of a bass guitar recently recorded by me). I have "appended track" in GCD Master (this export.wav) and filled all the fields for the album and the selected track (just a test). After burning I have played it with Sound Juicer (it sounds fine). Strangely, the perfomer and song are there, but the track's name is "Strong Enough" and the artist "Stacie Orrico" (!!!???) (I wrote "Prueba" and "Pablo" instead). A tutorial on this would be great. Thank you for your interest Pablo

Excellent!

I think I'll check up on the other guy (not that he uses it for creating CD's - Live music man... I think I'll write a quick howto for exporting red book compliant project data for gcdmaster from ardour if I get a bit of time. Should not take too long Cheers, Quentin

Thanx Quentin, I have just solved this issue. I've run from the terminal: sudo gcdmaster and the device was recognised. Just copied the device, vendor and model to a piece of paper, close the applicaction and open again, this time as normal user. Add the device and ready to go! Pablo

Seen it before...

I have seen this before in another system. The DVD drive of the system was not recognised in the application. I don't know if it was fixed though... I'll have to dig a bit deeper
