    It appears that my copy of Sonic Foundry's wonderful "CD Architect" will not work on my new PC. I think it's a Windows XP problem, it doesn't see the CD Recorder. I am going to ask on the Sonic Foundry forum if there's a way to get the program working in XP.

    But assuming that I can't, what is some good Audio CD Mastering programs? I need something that will allow me to load very large WAV files (a whole LP album side or longer) and split the WAV file into individual tracks.

    Philip,

    can't you just use CD Architect to split the large wav file into smaller tracks, and then burn those with whatever recording program you have?

    Yes, but that is a huge pain in the ass compared to what I'm used to - simply dropping the large file in and tracking.

    CDWave will split tracks.

    I'm using SoundForge to do the recording. That will split tracks perfectly, as well as normalize, etc. It's a big pain compared to just setting up the tracks in CD Architect. I'm downloading the 2000 update to CD Architect - I hope it works...

    EDIT: Success! I'm back in business with CD Architect, the best Audio CD authoring program EVER!!!!
