Hello, I'm new on this forum and I wonder if it's possible to import MP3 files into CD Architect?
If not, can anybody advise me on witch software similar to Architect that can do the job?
Thanks for any advice.
Yes, CD Architect can open just about any type of audio file. You may have to register the MP3 plugin before you can open them, but it's an easy and free step, just click the "register" button when it shows up.
Note that CD Architect will only create standard Audio CDs. When you've burned the CD it won't be a data disc containing MP3 files. The audio will be expanded to uncompressed PCM format, so you'll only be able to fit 70 minutes on a disc. If you simply want a disc full of hundreds of MP3 files then use any burning software that creates data discs.
Thank you, that’s exactly what I want to do, burn many MP3 files on a CD or even on a DVD.
Do you think I can do that with DVD Architect or even maybe with Vegas? (I have those programs)
Or is it going to be Nero? (I don’t like Nero much)
I would also like to be able to NORMALIZE because I intent to mix all kinds of music genres on a CD/DVD.
What you want is NOT an audio CD, which is what CDA or Vegas will produce.
You want a CD-ROM with mp3 files on. You can create this natively with Windows Explorer as already sdetailed. Or if you want to normalise them, then the easiest way is with Nero (get used to it !) or any one of the many other equivalnt apps like Musicmatch Jukebox.
If you do go the tricky way of loading them into Vegas, the yes, could could normalise them, but then you would need to resave the normalised results and burn a CD-ROM as before. You could use batch-converter in Sound Forge.
