it works great. My only complaint is that with Audio CDs it adds a 2
second delay at the end of each track. The Astarte CD-Copy gives you
control over this (seperate program) or CD-DA (which is also seperate).

Unfortunately, there are no longer any Toast related pages on the Astarte
web site (with the exception of software updates which can be found at
, since Adaptec now owns both Toast and CD-DA.
Just a bit of clarifiation as well, CD-Copy does not overcome Toast's
2-second gap limitation. CD-Copy does audio extraction, which helps you in
duplicating audio CDs, but when writing that audio back to CD, Toast (at
least the current version) will always put a 2 second gap between the
tracks. CD-DA (which writes discs in Disc-at-Once mode) does remove this
In addition, Adaptec Toast 3.5 (it'll be out any day now!) will remove the
2 second gap limitation, too, provided you have a recorder that supports
gap editing in track-at-once mode ...
