Recoding large audio files on CD

Recommended Posts

I have a set of 23 AAIF tracks, whose total duration is 86 minutes and whose total size is 1.37 GB, which I want to burn to a CD. I have some 90 minute, 800 MB, recordable CDs. As far as duration is concerned, my recordings will fit onto one of these disks.

My question is: will Express Burn reduce the total file size during the burning to fit the disc’s capacity of 800 MB, or should I first convert the AIFF files to more compressed ones such as mp3s?

Thank you in anticipation of advice.

Thank you for your reply and suggestion, Chris75. Actually I jumped the gun and, as an experiment, did set Express Burn to burn the 1.37 GB set of 23 files to an 800 MB recordable CD. It did so without any problems, reducing the size to 911.9 MB and producing a good recording of all 23 tracks.

Your link for Switch is, unfortunately, no use to me because my computer is a Mac and will not open .exe files. I would try reducing the sizes of my files and burning another CD in order to compare the audio quality. Does Switch work on a Mac?
