You mean the "Align sector boundry" box right?
 I was just curious because right when frontend  is done with the last track it says something to the effect of " Info: 42 zero samples have been appended"  what is that about?

I'd say neither...do it by *set*. Otherwise you'll get a split-second of the first set at the beginning of the second. Usually not a big deal if you have fade in/fade out, and it's such a tiny fraction of a second it doesn't really matter, but that's how to do it right, I'd say. :)

Another suggestion, if I may:

Make a WAV MD5 before compression so that if someone ever for some reason switches the FLACs over to SHN, or if there are any questions with the FLAC FFP or MD5, the WAV MD5 will take care of it.

I use FLAC and SHN interchangeably, depending on what my mood is at the time.  But I've gotten in the habit of making WAV MD5s.  I don't quite trust the internal check on FLAC and I'm not a fan of the FFP.  I also don't like making FLAC MD5s, because I remember something about most ETREEers not liking that...  But whatever, it all works... 

And yeah, Mike Wren should be able to tell us, but I'm pretty sure the SBE fixer on Frontend now works just fine.  I end up using SHNTOOLs, though.

And DNSacks suggestion that you trim the first and last 0.01 sec off your recording in CDWave is key!!!  This further prevents SBEs and is just good habit - nice clean ends...

Godd luck,

Terry
***Do you have PHISH, VIDA BLUE, JAZZ MANDOLIN PROJECT or any other Phish related DATs/Tapes/MDs that need to be transferred???  I can do them for you!!!***

I will return your DATs/Tapes/MDs.  I'll also provide Master FLAC files via DropBox.  PM me for details.

is 0.01 sec, enough off the end, pertaining to a sbe?  i don't know the numbers off hand but should we trim more?

Actually, .01 second could potentially not be enough since sector boundaries occur at 1/75th of a second intervals.

Regardless, since cdwave only will cut on sector boundaries, any cut/track split you make using cdwave will be on a sector boundary.  Thus, cut as close as you want to the end, cdwave will make that cut on sector boundaries and if you instruct it to not save the stuff after the last track you want, the last track will be cut on sector boundaries.

busted :)

Seriously, I knew the time interval between sector boundaries was VERY minimal after Jay Ashley's bitching about how aligning on sector boundaries would eliminate his creative/artistic control over tracking was thoroughly debunked a while back.
