Now I just want to test it if everything is ok, because the CDTEXT file opened in a notepad is not displayed correctly.

I do not understand how yours and Andreas's DDP tools could assist me. I've opened DDP To Cue Writer.exe and there is nothing I can do with it - I can not find a way to load those files etc.

cdrecord.exe and ddpinfo.exe tools can not be opened as a standalone - so I guess they are trigered by the DDP To Cue Writer.exe.

Did this in R 4.76.
I know I missed something, but just can not find it. Should I use your tools only instead of Sergejs integrated DDP render?

My wish is either to test the DDP for possible errors or if this is not possible to burn a CD from those files.
Hi,
My DDP program works with a DDP file set that's already been rendered. It does not create DDP files. It converts DDP to a cue/wav for cd burning

Can you send me you Reaper project file(Just the RPP file)?
We'll get it figured out.
Thanks, Wyatt

Ok, thanks!

Oh just noticed something - perhaps it is the problem that I use wavpack files instead of wave???

Yeah, I would use wav files.

I see a couple of things in your RPP file that I would change to be on the safe side.

In the project settings, set the project framerate to 75.



Then in your snap settings, set that to frame.



Then right click on the ruler, and select hours, mins, secs, frames.



You can save this as a template, and name it something like DDP Setup.

This will allow you to set your markers exactly on a CD frame.

Then render to dpp files to an empty, or new folder.

DDP To Cue Writer works with directory's instead of filenames, so whether you checking MD5 checksums, converting, or burning a cd, always select the folder where the ddp files are located, and you should be good to go.

Here's a quick animated gif showing converting to a cue/wav.
http://stash.reaper.fm/23764/Convert_DDP.gif

In the example above, you can save the cue/wav to a separate folder, keeping them out of the folder with the ddp files (recommended).

If everything went alright, you should have three files in that folder e.g. (image.cue, image.wav, image.cdt) that is if you use cdtext, else then you would just have two files(cue/wav).
You can then open the cue file, and burn a copy to CD.

The "Write DDP" Button basically does the same thing, except that it does the conversion to a temp folder, then writes the CD, and deletes the temp files after the process has completed.

Sorry that I don't really have a written manual yet, but most stuff is self explanatory. If you hover the mouse over the different buttons, check boxes, etc, you'll see tooltips explaining what happens.

Hope this helps.

Let me know if you get it going.
Thanks, Wyatt

Thanks Wyatt, my settings were ok, wavpack was ok (why not saving space),
it was the procedure with your tools that is rather confusing - your GIF is explanatory though. A user needs to choose/doubleclick (not open) the DDP files directory and then browse into the desired directory.

Perhaps I did also something wrong, but can not figure out what that would be. It is surely working now. Thanks!
Perhaps put the gif into the ddp tools zip package.

Great ideal! I'll do that when I get a chance.
Glad to see you got it working.

Default brilliant work

I'd like to thank everyone for their brilliant work on this DDP feature. I registered just to say that. Andreas, love your utilities!

This might be the final straw that pushes me into the Reaper camp, though it's hard to give up a decade or more of commitment to another product.

Welcome aboard.

If I can do anything to help you regarding DDP, let us know.
Thanks,

Exclamation multiple INDEX sub codes

Hello,

is there any way to specify multiple INDEX subcodes for a single track within Reaper DDP export utility?

According to Help button in render dialog only INDEX0 and INDEX1 are supported:

"
- markers starting with "!" character represent INDEX0 position for the following "#" track
- markers starting with "#" character represent track metadata and INDEX1 position
"

If not: is there any way to add them with some other tool?

Hello fellow DDP people.

I've been working on Sergej's marker list utility code that he kindly shared with me not to long ago, and I have a working windows version. It doesn't effect Reapers current DDP render plugin at all, it's just a gui and it makes the process of putting in song titles, cd text, album info, etc. a whole lot easier. Here's a demo of what it does.



Would any of you extension guys be willing to help me so I might be able to get a version to work for Mac?

Any help would greatly be appreciated.
Thanks,
Wyatt

Hi Wyatt,
I'm going to use for the first time DDp exporting in Reaper in the next month, and I'm on a mac.
Your GUI is very interesting and it should make really simpler to write the cdtext instead of the marker's code, so if there something I can do to help you with the mac version I can be a beta tester

Hi,
Thanks for your interest. Sorry to say that I don't have a working version for MAC yet to even beta test. I wish I did. I'll post here when I do.
Many Thanks,
Wyatt

Hi all.

I just finished updating DDP To Cue Writer (Windows Versions Only).

There was a buffering bug that was random, and sometimes the last bit of text wouldn't display in the textbox progress log.

All processes now run in a separate thread, and that fixed the problem, and the GUI is more responsive now.

Special thanks to user SonicAxiom for reporting the bug, and testing.

The new version can be downloaded from the original post, and the links have been updated too.
See new links here.
http://forum.cockos.com/showpost.php...&postcount=294

Or see my signature for the links.

Thanks, Wyatt

Hi Wyatt,
First, thanks for all the interest and effort you show for the DDP mastering format. About this "ddp_marker_list" utility (windows version), is it already fully functional and/or shareable?
Thanks in anticipation.

Excellent thread for all who want/need to author DDP files!

Thanks very much to all of the clever people who have made this possible in Reaper and also made the checking of DDP files possible.

I've used Wave Edit on Mac in the past with no problems. I'm now on PC and have been asked to provide a DDP to the CD replicator. After looking at a few different programs and searching through various threads on different forums I stumbled across this thread and it's been invaluable to me.

I created a test DDP file, tested it with the tools in this thread and downloaded demo versions of commercial DDP players to check that everything was working fine. All is fine. Now when the real project is with me I'll be ready with confidence to author the DDP in Reaper.

Thanks again!

Hi,
Could you send me your Reaper Project file (Just the .RPP file)?
Thanks,

I'm having trouble reproducing this.

Are you using Windows or Mac?

And what version?

Thanks,

I have read your messages, and I will try both versions to see if one will work. Thank you so much for your help!

Here's a quick animated gif example of how the Vista Win 7 folder browser should look like.
