The Extract Audio From CD command is faster and provides more control, including the ability to optimize drive speed and rename tracks.
In the center of the Extract Audio From CD dialog box, Artist, Album, Genre, and Year information is drawn from the specified CD database by default. To adjust these entries, do any of the following:
- To customize information, overwrite current entries.
- To insert original information from the database, click the Retrieve Titles icon .
- If a message indicates multiple matching records, click the arrows to insert different database records.
- To specify a different database and file naming convention, click the Title Settings icon . For details about each Title Settings option, position the mouse over it until a tool tip appears.
Note: If multiple Artist entries are detected, Audition automatically selects the Compilation option. In the Title Settings dialog box, enter a Separator For Compilations character to separate Artist and Track Title for each track.
This extraction method can greatly degrade Audition performance. The Extract Audio From CD command is usually a better choice.
The Open command lets you extract tracks in AIFF format but requires Audition to continue reading audio data from CD, slowing importing and editing.
