About Custom Burned CDs
The sections below detail OPTIONAL features. If you are satisified with using "Track01", "Track02", etc for track names for Custom Burned CDs, you can skip this page. Just click File > Import Audio CD. A playlist (Script) will be created in the Automator.
A Custom Burned CD is one that you burn yourself with a CD burner (ie not a purchased manufactured CD). It will likely not be possible to retrieve the track names for these CDs from the Web. However, if you want to have actual song names for these CDs in Sound Mill, this page describes a way to do it.
In general, these are the steps to follow:
Set Soundlist Name to the Album Name.
Set each Sounditem Name to the related song name. (there is a productivity menu item below to help speed the work involved)
Save the CD Info to My CD Collection for future use.
The next time you load the CD with Sound Mill, the CD Info will automatically be applied from the collection.
'My CD Collection' is a way to save the CD Info for your Custom CDs for future sessions. If you save it, Sound Mill will recognize the CD next time you insert it into the drive and the previously created CD Info will be used. 'My CD Collection' is available to all Soundlists. After making edits to CD Info, you need to click Save CD Info to 'My CD Collection'.
