Of course. Feurio has some friendly details (only sometimes
) and when it sees that you're trying to burn MP3s without pauses, then it tells you that is impossible.
With WAV files that problem doesn't exist, so it doesn't tell you anything because it's not so smart to analyze the WAV files for silences at beginning and end.
However, I could still hear momentary silence between tracks even with that setting, undoubtedly because the source was the MP3 files.
Exactly. The only option is to remove manually those silences, as I said before.
Open Track Editor and use "Set start position" and "Set end position", if your choice to do it is Feurio.
It's a pity that "Remove silence at the end of *.cda tracks" in Nero doesn't work (that setting does nothing, AFAIK, and the help says nothing about it). Let's see if Feurio 2 has something to delete those silences automatically (it can do it when ripping like a lot of programs).
I'm seeing that there's a visualization bug in the Track Editor. The blue bar separating tracks changes its position a bit when you move along the track, and the end changes depending on position. Well, I don't know how to explain it, but it doesn't happen with WAV files.
So, if you're going to use Feurio to remove the silences (I find it quite fast) better decompress to WAV before.
The results with EZCD burning from WAV files produced a barely noticeable silence glitch between continuous tracks, but the results were pretty good.
I've been checking one MP3 track now, and the silence at the beginning is around 25 miliseconds and much less at the end.
If you do the work to delete that silence, and use a typical program like EasyCD, you'll lose a bit of the job, because silence will be added at the end to fill the CD-DA sector.
Feurio has 2 choices:
- Minimal pauses, which does the same as EasyCD (fill the sector with silence).
- Do not insert pauses betweeen tracks, wich fills the sector with the beginning of the following track (you'll lose slight precision but it's the only way to have seamless playing).
The added silence to fill the sector won't be bigger than 587 samples of course, which is around 13 miliseconds.
This problem doesn't happen with WAV files ripped from CD, because those tracks will be multiple of a CD-DA sector, obviously. This is only a issue with MP3 tracks or WAV non multiple of CD-DA sector (588 samples).
By the way, Nero is the only program I know that removes the portion of last sector instead of filling with silence. So, there's a possibility that Nero only removes the silence at the end of the MP3 track, but there's the option that Nero removes a little bit of the music (without warning
