Logic 9 wave editing....

    Is it best to master with an external wave editor? ...or...will the Logic sample editor do everything external software would do? I've had Logic for some time but I've done nothing using the sample editor.

    I've downloaded Audacity. It looks pretty bare bones which might be ok for the simple stuff I normally need to do but something more sophisticated would seem best for mastering. I'd appreciate any advice.

    Logic' Sample Editor is worth exploring since you already have it. It does have many useful features for editing audio files.

    I still use and like Waveburner for CD mastering/burning, but it's no longer available to new users purchasing from the App Store. Hopefully Apple will fold in Waveburner's functionality into Logic as in Studio One.

    But for Mastering within Logic I would do something along these lines, with most if not all of the work being done right in the Arrange window: http://www.logic-users-group.com/forums/showpost.php?p=36713&postcount=6

    Regarding external editors, I've used DSP-Quattro in the past, and it's a big bang for the buck package which includes CD mastering. http://www.dsp-quattro.com/dspquattro/Site/DSP-Quattro.html

    Sonic Forge is now available to Mac but currently has no CD burning/mastering features which the PC version has. http://www.sonycreativesoftware.com/soundforgepromac

    Triumph is grabbing my interest at the moment.:

    Here are a couple more to check out:

    Thanks for the very useful info. The link to your post was especially helpful. It looks like a good methodology within Logic. I'll check out the other links you provided.

    You're very welcome. Post additional questions if needed as you work through procedure. It can be abbreviated once familiar with the steps and outcomes of each bounce. Let me know when you've reached a successful end point.

    Regarding the other links, I know that DSP-Quattro has two lanes for two stereo files that can overlap for cross fades yet have song markers that can be identified by a CD player. (See attachment) Same with Waveburner.

    It's not clear to me if Triumph or Amadeus Pro has this feature which is critical for CD "assembly".

    An iTunes playlist is great for burning a collections songs for listening. But is you want to create songs from one continuous file like a live recording, or to cross-fade tunes, then a application that provides multiple lanes is necessary.

    Right now I can say that DSP-Quattro can do that. It looks like Amadeus Pro can. Not sure if Triumph can unless it is done through it's "Layers" feature. Maybe someone who knows can clarify this.
