Adjust your recording options to remove gaps of silence between tracks. Thursday, May 10, 2001 Close those gaps Adjust your recording options to remove gaps of silence between tracks.
When you create an audio CD, there is usually a two-second gap between the audio tracks. Some folks find this annoying, so you can remove those gaps by adjusting your recording options. After the tracks are selected for recording, click the Create CD button. In the CD Creation Setup screen, click the Advanced tab after making the first screen selections, and select the last option (Disc-at-Once). This will set the software to write the CD without turning the writing laser on and off, eliminating gaps between the tracks. If you want to add more audio to the disc later, you will need to leave the recording on the Track-at-Once setting, and just live with the gaps.
