I hope someone can give me a hand solving this problem:
I used EAC to rip a CD-Audio (Uncompressed image + Cue file), the last song is actually made of two songs with a long silence in between (I think it's called a "ghost track"), EAC sees them as a single track.
- Is there a way to have two separate tracks in the .cue file?
- Would burning a CD using the .cue file in wich the last track is "invisible" output a disc including the ghost track too?

Thread: EAC and ghost track
#1 - yes, use a text editor (or better, cuemaster, cdrcue, and other good cuesheet-specific editors) and add a Track (or Index if you prefer it that way) # to the end, using the time at which the "ghost track" starts. May have to try a few times to get that right
#2 - If using the ORIGINAL cue (and bin/wav/iso) file, yes, it would include the "ghost track" (SHOULD - if the app+burner are doing proper DAO cue-sheet burning)
Understand that a track designed in this manner isn't REALLY a separate track at all except in your mind, just a continuation of the previous track with a gap of silence in-between. The difference would be whether the Track# increments or not. I've seen it done both ways with these kinds of tracks, but the kind with the additional track# isn't really "hidden" any more, just delayed.
I've heard the term "hidden track", and even "surprise track" before, but not ghost track. I kind of like it.

Thanks for replying.
Well, if you had an audio editor that read the full cue sheet, you could just scroll to the start of the hidden segment, read off the time (in HH:MM:SS:FF, where frame=CD frame= 1/75sec), then use that # for the time of the new track#. That would get you pert near exact, as they say.
Imgburn is fine for this.
Glad you like the term.

audacity (along with the rest of the CD of course). Select and delete silent part. Save. Create new CDDA project and disc, or convert to *.mp3.Stop feeling suicidal just because he unfriended you on fezbuk.
