Re: [ARSCLIST] Preservation media WAS: Cataloguing still :-)
Thansk. I hope this isn't too off topic for people!
I use Protools and Peak - and nothing I know of will edit the final MP3
encoded files, which is why I asked. PT will make regions, and those
can be read as tracks on CD burning, but i don't know if it will with
MP3 encoding. I'll find out!
Audible was innovative, but they were so slow getting to Macs and the
audio so abiminable was why I stopped them after one try. If they make
MP3s from cassettes no wonder! But they did not use their best encoding
for a very long time, so lost my business permanently. But I like
producing audiobooks, not usually listening to them that much. And yes,
few can afford it except the major publishers who no longer hire
freelancers such as me... Their loss!

In Soundforge, which is what I use, I'd have my full edited recording
file. Then, there's an option to "create region marks every XX
minutes." Then there's an option to "save each region as its own
file." Now, of course the PITA factor comes in because it is a
computer -- the user needs to first name each region something that
make sense like "Disc01-Chap01" or some such thing. Then the files get
saved as those names in whatever folder you specify. The main file
doesn't get changed except to insert region marks. You can then
save-as the main file in any format you wish (MP3, Real, WinMedia,
I'm assuming whatever software you have has the same or similar
features buried among its menus.
