Just did a great mix - but due to accidentally hitting the auto-track button my cd recorder has incremented the track number during silent sections. The end result is that this great mix is track 6,7,8 and 9 instead of simply track 6. The cd recorder does not offer a way to correct this. Is there a way of removing the track markers for 7,8 and 9 but leaving the data intact - thus merging the track back into 1? Some cd editing software for pc or mac perhaps? Free or shareware software would be nice as I really don't want to spend lots of money on a pro package just to correct this one mistake!

You can fix this easy. Put the CD in a mac, drag out the files ( OS X will pad the CDA stream so each track will be visible in the GUI as a .aiff
Use Audacity or a similar Audio editor to assemble the lot into one file.

There are also simple apps that will rip a CD as a stream and banging the lot into one file. That might be OK to try too. When you grab stuff off CDs like this, don´t rip the audio into a compressed format like mp3. Go for .aiff or wav at 16bits/44.1 khz.

Thanks guys. I don't know why but I stupidly thought that the join would not be perfect - but I used Audacity, which I'd somehow overlooked, pasted the files together, and it's perfect.
