Using Cakewalk Pyro 2003

To burn your WAV file to an audio CD, you’ll need a CD-burning application such as Cakewalk’s Pyro 2003. Pyro is very easy to use and provides a number of useful CD-burning features. To burn an audio WAV file to CD using Pyro 2003, follow these basic steps:

  1. Start Pyro 2003 and click on the Make Audio CD tab to display the audio CD burning screen, as shown in Figure 17.6. The bottom half of the screen shows all of the resources available on your PC. This includes your Windows desktop, the hard drives, and all the files stored on your computer. The left pane is the Folders view, and the right pane is the Files view. The top half of the screen represents your new audio CD. Initially you’ll see only blank white space.

  2. In the Folders view, choose the resource or disk drive containing the audio files you want to burn to CD. For example, if you have some files on your Windows desktop that you want to burn, click on Desktop in the Folders view. The Files view will then display a list of all the folders and files available on the desktop.

  3. In the Files view, select the audio files you want to burn to CD. To select multiple files, hold down the Ctrl key on your computer keyboard as you click on the files with your mouse.

  4. Click on the Add button in the top half of the screen to add the selected files to your audio CD project. The files will be added to the audio CD project area, as shown in Figure 17.7.

  5. To delete a file from the audio CD project, click on it to select it, and then click on the Remove button.

    NOTE

    LIST VIEW

    You can also view the tracks on your audio CD project as a list by clicking on the View button.

  6. To move a file to a different track location in the audio CD project, click on the file to select it, and then use the Move buttons to move the file left or right in the project (left being toward the beginning of the CD and right being toward the end of the CD).

  7. Repeat steps 2 through 6 until you’ve finished adding all your files to the project.

  8. Put a blank CD-R disc in your CD burner and then click on the Burn CD button to display the CD Burning Options dialog box (see Figure 17.8).

    Figure 17.8. Use the CD Burning Options dialog box to choose the drive and the burning speed you want to use.


  9. Choose the drive you want to use from the Select a Drive for CD Burning drop-down list. If you have only one CD burner attached to your computer, it should be chosen automatically.

  10. Choose the burning speed you want to use from the Burning Speed drop-down list. If the list doesn’t look accurate, you can have Pyro scan your drive by clicking on the Update button.

    NOTE

    CD BURNING SPEEDS

    When choosing a burning speed, be sure to read the label on the blank disc you are using to determine its maximum speed rating. Some CDs are created to withstand high burning speeds and some are not. If you choose a speed that is higher than what your disc can withstand, it might not burn correctly.

  11. Click on OK. Pyro 2003 will display the Burning CD dialog box and show you its progress as it burns your new audio CD.
