Subject: Re: [Puptcrit] sound question

I visited a Sam Ash music store about a year ago, and they had some 
CD players designed for Disk Jockey's with that feature.  When I 
inquired about MP3 players which could do the same, they said they 
didn't have any, but were anticipating some new models that did in 
the next year.  I don't know the current status.

However, I have faked the "single play" feature on a CD by adding an 
extended amount of silence on the end of a track.  This way when a 
track's audio ends, it just keeps playing silence.  When you want the 
next sound cue to start, you press the "fast forward" button to jump 
to the next track. Since MP3's files are compressed, I would think 
that the silence would compress very well and not take up any 
significant file space.  So, theoretically, you could have 1 hour of 
silence at the end of each track guaranteeing that you will never 
have a sound cue overrun its track.  But, I've never tried this.
