My name is Michael - I live in Cape Coral, Florida, USA. I'm 38 years old and one of my hobbies is djing and electronic music.

My current setup is 2 Technic 1200 turntables , a Rane MP24 mixer, my computer - which has a M-Audio Audiophile 2496 audio card and some other misc pieces of equipment such as a power amp, speakers, EQ, etc.

For software I bought Soundforge 8 and CD Architect 5 to help record my dj mixes and make cds.

I currently have a full dj mix saved in Soundforge - it is a total of 12 songs about 73 minutes in length - its a continuous mix; with no gaps in between the songs.

The problem I am having is that I cant seem to figure out how to transfer the dj mix file to CD Architect so I can burn a copy of the CD. The other issue I have is that I need to put in markers , or points for each of the 12 tracks - so that I can move to a specific track within the mix cd after its completed.

I have Scott Garrigans book - Soundforge 8 - Power ; that has helped me create my dj mix but I cant seem to figure out CD Architect. Ive tried other message boards, websites and newsgroups to get info but no such luck.

I was wondering if there is anybody in this forum that does consulting work with Soundforge 8 / Cd Architect 5 that could walk me thru the steps on how to complete my cd. I am fully prepared to pay a consultation fee for the help/experience. If there isnt anybody on this forum that could help - could somebody please recommend a website/ other avenue that I could find some one-on-one/ telephone help?

I would truly and greatly appreciate it.

thank you

Save your resultant file, load it into CDA (Media Pool - Open Media) , , put in whatever markers required, and burn .

But if your DJ compilation purely involved cropping, fading , level-matching, and sequencing the segmentss, then it would have been easier to do straight-off in CDA !

There are free tutorials and for sale DVDs in Products - Training And Support. But what you want to do is very straightforward and is covered fairly straighforwardly in Help, as well as Scott's book. Just a matter of getting familiar...
