    I'm pretty sure toast can burn an audio cd from wav files. What do you mean by cue sheet?

    On a windows platform it is possible to burn one long wav/mp3 file to cd. A cue sheet is used to by the burning software (on a pc i usually use a program called 'CDRWIN' ) to place track start points onto the cd. Thus burning a cd without noticable 'gaps'.

    I use it when burning my dj mixes to cd without having to split the big wav up before burning.

    An example '.cue' sheet contains data that looks like this:

    ----------------
    PERFORMER "mk_set_edit"
    TITLE "mk_set_edit"
    FILE "mk_set_edit.aif" AIFF
    TRACK 01 AUDIO
    TITLE "oochiepop"
    INDEX 01 00:00:00
    TRACK 02 AUDIO
    TITLE "drop the pressure"
    INDEX 01 06:26:00
    TRACK 03 AUDIO
    TITLE "doomsnight"
    INDEX 01 12:17:00
    TRACK 04 AUDIO
    TITLE "yeeow"
    INDEX 01 17:32:00
    TRACK 05 AUDIO
    TITLE "get busy"
    INDEX 01 21:53:00
    TRACK 06 AUDIO
    TITLE "pleasure from the bass"
    INDEX 01 27:33:00
    TRACK 07 AUDIO
    TITLE "salty"
    INDEX 01 34:23:00
    TRACK 08 AUDIO
    TITLE "so gone"
    INDEX 01 41:19:00
    TRACK 09 AUDIO
    TITLE "jam the box"
    INDEX 01 46:40:00
    TRACK 10 AUDIO
    TITLE "bring me down"
    INDEX 01 52:48:00
    TRACK 11 AUDIO
    TITLE "cant handle this"
    INDEX 01 57:30:00
    TRACK 12 AUDIO
    TITLE "flashdance"
    INDEX 01 63:05:00
    TRACK 13 AUDIO
    TITLE "slave"
    INDEX 01 68:49:00
    TRACK 14 AUDIO
    TITLE "soul vibrates"
    INDEX 01 73:09:00
    ---------------------

    i believe there was a panther program called 'firestarter' that did this, but the final beta is now expired.

    i tried a cuesheet using toast 6 but it states that it is the wrong format.

    Ok got it. You can do something similar with PEAK. Also JAM may be able to do it. Waveburner was the best but I don't know if it is OSX compatible these days. With waveburner you just dropped a visual like where your tracks started.

    I'm going to check into waveburner again myself as I'm a registered user.
