    Hi,

    I'm putting together a playlist to be played at my wedding (!) and then I would like to burn a few audio CDs...

    I was wondering if it's possible to crossfade the songs? it seems that in iTunes I can only burn an audio CD with no gaps between the songs...

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks!

    Under the iTunes Preferences > Advanced > Burning, there is a selection for no gap between songs. I've never burned a CD with that selection, so I don't know how it will turn out.

    You didn't really read the question, did you? haha.

    I don't think it's possible to burn CDs with crossfades. You might need Waveburner or Toast (+ Jam?) to do something like that.

    You will either need a CD player that supports crossfading or you will need to remix the tracks into 1 big track with the crossfades between each song.

    I'm as well quite curious to solve this challenge..
    Important for me is to keep the tracks separated.
    Can you help?

    Think outside the box. Surely if you don't have an iPod then someone will be willing to give you one as an early wedding present. Instead of CD player->audio cable -> Amplifier + Speakers use iPod -> audio cable -> Amplifier + Speakers.

    Garageband mixes the songs together, I've done it before but it will show as one track when you import the songs together

    First you need to make the mix, using whatever DJ software you prefer (or even just plugging your mixer into audio input device). Then import that mix into something like Fission to break the mix into separate tracks, then import into iTunes and burn with the no gap option on. You'll end up with a mix with both crossfades and broken into tracks that plays seamlessly.

    Well that's interesting. Care to share with the rest of the class the steps needed to accomplish this ?
