I'd like a command to write a file, rather than a CD.
The idea is to first build a .wav file, play it on the
computer, before actually wrinting a CD.

    I think this would be great. I spend a lot of time writing
    a CD, making a small adjustment, then writing another. It
    would be nicer to "proof" it right on the computer.

    It will be great if both users can take a look at gcdmaster,
    it will allow you to listen to CD images, move track marks,
    cut tracks, ... last version is 1.1.5.

    Yup! gcdmaster is great. But it still can't write a .wav
    file. I have to burn a CD, read it back, then build mp3's.

    Yes, but if the only reason to build those .wav or .mp3 is
    to listen before burning the CD, you can just "play the cd
    image" using gcdmaster, even adjust silences and track marks.

    Yes, but gcdmaster makes a terrible cd player. I just
    finished a project using gcdmaster to preview, but kept
    burning CD's anyway. Gcdmaster is missing transport
    controls (pause, next/last track, scan forward/back).

    But if all I am doing is making .mp3's, the intermediate
    step of burning a CD is also awkward! Why write a cd, read
    it back (possibly introducing errors), then make the mp3?

    Yes, better play controls are planned, but not a priority.

    What's the source for writing the CD? If you don't want to
    write CD's, probably a Wav editor will fit you better.
    What's exactly what you are trying to do?

    I have several thousand .wav files. I'm using a perl script
    to build a cdrdao toc file to master a CD. It's a complex
    perl script, and not suited to a gui. The result is meant
    for both CD & mp3. I also use gcdmaster to preview the
    results.

    If you already have the .wav files, why do you need to burn
    the CD to make mp3?

    The cdrdao toc file specifies the spacing and order that the
    .wav files must be assembled in.

    I imagine other people will use the gcdmaster GUI to
    assemble a set of audio clips, and want to preview it, or
    build mp3's, rather than build cd's.

    To be clear: This would be most useful in cdrdao, because
    then cdrdao can be used as a utility to assemble sound
    clips, and build EITHER Audio CD's or MP3s. The output of
    cdrdao would feed directly to a MP3 builder, rather than
    first building a CD, then ripping it, then converting to
    MP3.

    I'll file this as an 'Export as WAV file' feature request
    for gcdmaster.
