Burning an audio CD of your Mastered (MIXDOWN) tracks.

2. Press F2 (CD WRITE). You can only use CD-R disks
and not CD-RW's for making Audio CD's.

3. Answer YES to" Write?" and YES to "Store Current", and
place a blank CD in the burner.

4. Cursor to L CHannel ( LEFT) source and set to the
Track and V-track you mixedown to in the MASTERING
ROOM. The R (RIGHT) will follow automatically.
You are basically just assigning it to burn the two
stereo tracks you mixed down too.

5. In the WRITE METHOD field, select TRACK AT ONCE if you want to burn one song to the CD at a time. Selecting DISK-AT-ONCE for Write Method is only used if you have multiple songs mixed downt to the exact same two tracks one after another and have placed CD track markers between songs.

6. Set the CD write speed to MAX.

7. If you want to continue to add songs to the CD, you must set FINALIZE to OFF, which will allow you to continue adding songs to the CD, but won't let you play it in an normal CD player until you do FINALIZE the CD with FINALIZE ON while you burn or select FINALIZE ONLY, which closes the CD and is then allowed to play in a CD player.

8. PRess F5 ( EXECUTE ), and answer YES to the next few messages involving STORING & OBEYING the COPY RIGHT LAWS.

More about FINALIZING a CD:
1- Write+Finalize - This function records the data from the VS-series hard drive, transfers CD Track Numbers and completes the CD by writing the Table Of Contents (TOC). When done, this CD is ready for playback in any CD player, and no additional audio may be added.
This option can be used on a partially recorded CD to add additional tracks and to finalize it immediately afterward. In this case, the total number of tracks previously recorded on the CD plus the number of tracks to be added cannot be more than 99. Also, the total time previously recorded on the CD plus the time of tracks to be added cannot exceed 74 minutes.

2- Write w/o Finalize - This function allows multi-session recording of audio on the CD. You can gradually assemble your songs onto the CD. A partially recorded CD cannot be played back in a CD player until it has been 'finalized' by writing the Table Of Contents (TOC). However, it can be played back in the VS-CDR (See section 'CD Player Mode'). Once the TOC is written, no additional audio may be added to the CD.
This is a good way to assemble your CD if you have a 540MB hard drive, or you're simply not ready to record the entire CD at one time. With this option, you can add songs to the CD at your convenience.

3- Finalize - This function finishes a multi-session CD, making it playable in all CD players by writing the TOC. Once the Finalize function is performed, no additional audio may be added to the CD.
