    I produce DJ mix CDs from vinyl and also listen to commercially produced mixes such as Muro's Hot Dog Breaks on Blue Note but I am encountering a big problem with iTunes.

    iTunes insists on putting its own gap between songs when there is none in the original CD. This destroys the continuity and flow of the mix and is really annoying.

    I have tried adjusting the settings eg no crossfade or gap between songs but to no avail. This problem occurs regardless of whether I'm burning an MP3 or Audio disc. Is there any way of getting rid of this problem?

    I don't think iTunes is really the tool for proper DJing.

    Something like DJ 1800 is good for live mixing: meshes perfectly with iTunes and your library but you need two sound cards to get the most out of it. It's only $40 though.

    For mixing for CDs, something like Toast with Jam should do the trick.
