    Default Free Mac app that allows you to create and burn a .cue?

    My Google-Fu has let me down, been try ting to find an app that allows you to generate a .cue plus burn it as well. I have a good on PC, and am now looking for one.

    Any suggestions out there?

    Are you trying to burn stuff you downloaded (legally or illegally…don't care for the purpose of this discussion, so leave it ambiguous) or a DJ set you've recorded?

    If it's the later, you don't need a cue file. Split the big, long audio file into tracks (Audacity will do that) and export each one…then you can use iTunes with the gap set to zero. Works every time.

    I have no idea how to do the former.

    DJ set, but if it's really that easy then I'll give your process a try

    Will Garage Band do this with their podcast thing? I remember doing a DJ set in it once and I could skip through it with chapters, but i didn't burn it to CD so it may not be what you want.

    IHNFC. When I did it in Logic, I bounced the output and imported it into a new track…used the cut tool at every song break, then just right-click and choose the option to do something like export or bounce or whatever seems to make sense (I never remember what menu commands are actually called)…put them somewhere…then iTunes playlist it and burn.

    I'd imagine Garage Band can do basically the same thing, and I'm sure Audacity has a cut/split tool of some kind.

    IDK…maybe cue files would be easier…but it makes sense to me to just keep using the same software you used to record it (unless you're using Traktor's internal recording or something).

    Nero isn't free thought, or is it?
