Fast Edit gives you the features you really need, in an uncluttered, straight-forward layout. GEAR customers are entitled to preferred pricing on Minnetonka Audio?s great software solutions. Multi?channel distribution systems like Windows Media 9 are ideal for the Internet, but when it comes to a multi?channel equivalent to the audio CD, one possible solution is the emerging DVD?Audio format. Of course, DVD?Audio isn't just for surround: it's also a solution for higher?quality stereo, since the audio streams stored on the disc can be at much higher sampling rates and resolutions than our old friend the Red Book audio CD. Unfortunately, though, a parallel situation hasn't really materialised in the audio world, and although DVD?Video discs can obviously contain audio, they're not designed for stand?alone audio playback in the same way as an audio CD is, for example. Authoring solutions for the specialist audio DVD?Audio format have, until now, been prohibitively expensive. Enter, stage left, Minnetonka's Discwelder Steel, the first 'affordable' DVD?Audio authoring software on the market. Installation commenced as soon as I inserted the program disc, which is a standard CD?R, and on first running Discwelder you get prompted to register the application with Minnetonka. You don't really get a choice in this matter because Discwelder uses a challenge?and?http://davidgiro.com/userfiles/brother-2040-user-manual.xml

response?style copy?protection mechanism, and the application has to be registered within 14 days of your installation in order to get an authorisation code to prevent Discwelder from 'timing out'. In practice, Minnetonka contacted me with my authorisation code within an hour of installing, so at least they seem to be fairly efficient. If you own a DVD writer already, or are considering purchasing one to use with Discwelder, it would be worth checking the compatibility with Minnetonka beforehand; as a guide, most Pioneer models seem to be supported. The reason for this latter requirement is that Discwelder always creates a disc image of your disc prior to burning, and you obviously need space to store the original content in the first place. So Minnetonka recommend the 10GB figure based on the fact a DVD?R disc has a maximum capacity of 4.7GB. Discwelder is ready to create a new DVD?Audio disc straight away after loading, and the main display features a Windows Explorer?like file browser in the upper half of the screen, with the contents of your disc in the lower half, which is referred to as the Album area. Discwelder can handle Wave or AIFF files at 16.The only caveat is that all the files for the channels of a 5.1 track do need to share the same properties, as you might expect. Unfortunately, you have to drag each of the remaining five files to the correct channels manually, since Discwelder has no way of intelligently assigning multiple files to the correct channels. Dragging a stereo file creates a stereo track, as you'd expect, and each track can easily be renamed and configured by double?clicking its entry and entering details into a window, including a pause time. A group is essentially a structure for organising DVD?Audio discs: each group is able to store up to 99 tracks, and although a DVD?Audio disc can contain many groups, Steel only allows one group to be created per disc.Discwelder's Album Properties window allows you to set up an on?http://www.energiacurativa.com/images/brother-2070n-user-manual.xml

screen menu for your DVD?Audio disc that can be seen if a TV or monitor is plugged into your DVD?Audio player. Aside from setting the font and TV system (PAL or NTSC) there's not much else you can do, with a fixed background watermarked with the Discwelder logo. This is an area of the application where Minnetonka have limited the features for the price range — far more elaborate use can be made of the visual potential of a DVD?Audio disc in more expensive software. Although writing the actual content to a DVD doesn't take long (a 4.7GB DVD?R can be written in approximately one hour at 1x speed), it can take around 15 minutes to finish off the disc because of the high capacity of DVD media. As a guide, though, burning the test disc shown in the screenshots took about 17 minutes. DVD?Audio hasn't reached anywhere near critical mass yet, a fact not helped by the fact most DVD?Video players can't play DVD?Audio discs, but Discwelder Steel is another step on the road. It enables you to create DVD?Audio discs that can be played back in any DVD?Audio player supporting DVD?R media, enabling you to easily try out your high?quality stereo and surround mixes in other environments. And Discwelder Steel doesn't have any competition in this price range either: it really is the only affordable solution, compared to Sonic Solutions and Minnetonka's higher?end offerings that cost thousands in any currency. If you need to create DVD?Audio discs on a budget, this is the software to do the job. One of the most significant differences is that Steel doesn't support MLP (Meridian Lossless Packaging), which is part of the DVD?Audio specification and enables a larger amount of audio data to be included. Note that this is, as the name suggests, a lossless form of compression, so there is no reduction in the audio quality, unlike MP3, for example. MLP is required for DVD?Audio discs to contain multi?channel audio at higher sampling rates than 48kHz.

Chrome also allows more control over the visual menu system and supports up to nine groups, allowing you to create DVD?Audio discs containing 891 tracks. This is a format required by some duplication houses for the mass production of DVDs, although most mastering houses will now accept the DVD?R discs you can produce in either Steel or Chrome as masters.

Two DVD-Audio players report the same f(s) as DVD-Audio explorer, so I've convinced myself that the disc really is being burned this way. I've tried gapless and non-gapless. I've tried moving the tracks around (a track that was 192 became 96 when moved). I tried with track images and without. Chrome reports that I'm only using 51% of a DVD-5 (4.8GB) disc. So, I'm very confused as to what is going on and how to keep the tracks from being modified.

I wish I had Surcode MLP since I could try that as well, but (unfortunately) I don't have an MLP encoder. Any ideas? Andy At least I know there is a way to make this work. HDtracks has the option for 4 types of formats. Verified disc properties are 2-channel. 6) Loaded the files by dragging the file from the file folder window in Chrome II onto the Group header in the bottom window. Repeated this step another 6 times (7 tracks total). 7) Renamed the tracks. Based on what you wrote, I decided to see if the wave wrapper from HDtracks could somehow be causing this. So, I re-saved the file in a slightly different wave wrapper (sometimes I have to use this version in ProTools for clean-up work). The bottom line was no difference in the outcome. I'm stumped. When you succeeded in doing this, how did you load the files into the disc structure in Chrome II. Did you drag each file individually into the group or use a different method. Thanks again for the help! Andy Will get back to you shortly (I have these files too) What build of Chrome II please?

The same tracks compile true in Sonic, and also true in Chrome if you remove the slides. Workaround: Use the track images as track associated menus instead, and create a custom menu structure rather than the generated one.I tried to reproduce what you did. I disabled all image files associated with each track. I then disabled all menus in album properties.

I also double-checked that everything that should be set to 2-ch (both the tracks and the album) were set to 2-ch mode. Unfortunately, I still get the same file structure. I suppose I could create one long file of the tracks and then split it like is done for MLP input files. Anyway, waiting on a reply from Minnetonka so I can try out the 32-bit OS. Did I miss a step with what you wrote? Luckily this is for myself so I've taken my time to try to solve. I burned a DVD-Audio disc with Wavelab 7 and the burned portion of the disc is larger (longer) than the Chrome build. So, that validates the input files. Still the strange menu structure. I have tried it with no images attached to each track, with no change. I even merged all of the tracks into one long file, loaded that into Chrome and then used trackpoints to divide up the tracks. Really deep bass that way but not a good way to listen to the song. Do I have to create a custom menu for this to work. I've almost given up since I can't seem to find the magic that Neil and LizardKing did.Created a custom menu (by editing the generated one) and compiled and again it was right. I did not try with track associated menus - note menus, not slides (huge difference). The trouble I had with Chrome is that it's abstraction layer gets in the way, and it has some nasty gotchas - one of which is this slideshow issue. I ordered the tracks from HDTracks in wave. That's one difference. But that doesn't explain why the same thing happened with the Hotel California tracks extracted as LizardKing mentioned above. I'm going to use what you wrote as the procedure and see what happens. I appreciate the help! Andy Building is indeed 2.0.30 with code from Minnetonka.

This seems an important feature for dvda-author to support because ofBut it's not going to be easy without anyRegards. Dave.For example, if. I am surprised that a mono track is illegal according to DVD-A specs. It would seem logical to allow for a situation where a mono track was desired so that narrative tracks could be included. I AM NOT surprised that Discwelder assigned the mono sound file to the center channel. This would seem to be a logical choice for narrative. One would definitely not wish to create a mono track with the soundfile assigned to the LFE channel as there is a large chance that a user may not have LFE channel output capability. (Actually, there is also a large probability that a user wouldn't have center channel output capability either and perhaps this is the reason that a single mono stream is forbidden.

A dual mono situation with the same stream assigned to both Lf and Rf would be a much better situation to author a dialog track.). PowerDVD was unable to playback. I'm a little fuzzy on what I tried. That is, all soundfiles on a single track must have the same bit-depth and sample-rate. I am not readily able to replicate the situation as I don't actually own a copy of Chrome either. I am a poor man with friends who enjoy better financial circumstances than I do and I am not afraid to ask to use their machines and their software for the purposes of evaluation (occasionally).

For the valid splitting of the channels into the two groups, see theDave.I'm not sure how the interface in Discwelder Bronze is designed, but I believe this is the procedure for the interface with Discwelder Chrome:In Chrome, adding a group also automatically adds a track with the channel format established from the global properties dialog. If your global properties adds a stereo track, right click on the track and change the track to a six channel surround with the track properties dialog. The interface is tricky so if you do not wish to useSee above. Yes. I read something about this and if I remember correctly, I tried it but perhaps I did something wrong. PowerDVD was unable to playback such a stream. I guess this might also indicate a limitation of PDVD rather than an error on my part. I'm a little fuzzy on what I tried.

I have not actually used DVDA Author yet and was hoping I could wait for the GUI version. I'm a Windoze user who has conveniently forgotten how to use command line apps.

Maybe it's related to this. Actually, it isn't really crippled when the SPDIF option is chosen. It is more like that when this option is chosen, the stream is passed to the DAC's on my soundcard unadulterated. I'm not quite intelligent enough to understand exactly what IS happening and I do not know how to examine the inner workings. Regards.

Regards. Dave.I saw your message posted elsewhere in which message topic appeared as above in this subject line. I suspect that your impression about Discwelder being limited to only 2 or 6 channels is incorrect. I think any combination for a number of channels would be possible by using the multichannel template and assigning only the channels that are desired. I'm impatiently awaiting a version of DVDA Author that supports multichannel audio. I have been following your project for slightly more than a week now. I doubt that I can provide much in the way of support other than words of encouragement. I know of a commercial DVD-A release that is not encumbered with CSS or CPPM. If you wish details about the release send me a message with a personal e-mail address that I may reply to.
