Acoustica Software Tips!
MP3 CD Burner tip #1: How to shuffle your song list in burner 4.0
People have really loved the new version 4.0 and its mixing abilities, but wondered where the "shuffle button" went!  The good news is that the shuffle feature is still there. Just select "Shuffle" from the "Song List" menu!  Or, you can hold down the Ctrl key and then press the L key for quick shuffling!  Download MP3 CD Burner 4.0 build 96
MP3 CD Burner tip #2: Help on using the music library.
The music library represents your music files found on your computer.  Each song's name, album and artist is derived from the 'tags'.  A tag is a portion of a file that contains text information about a song.  Not all songs have tags!  Those songs will be found in the "Untagged" area of your library.  To see your "Untagged" songs, go the the "Music Library" and click the [+] next to "Untagged".  You can get songs out of the untagged area by right clicking on them and filling in their artist, album and song information and clicking "OK".  Download MP3 CD Burner 4.0 build 96
 
CD/DVD Label Maker tip #1:  How to do more with your text (rotate, colors, etc)
In order to keep the interface simple, we have hidden some lesser used features.  When you click on some words or text within the label maker, a small toolbar will appear under the "text box".  You will see a small 'chevron' which looks like two greater than signs ">>".  Click that and you will be able to do the following:
  • Set a background color to the text box
  • Make it a thought or speech balloon, oval or other shape.
  • Rotate the text vertically or horizontally.
  • Change margins and alignments.
  • Much more! Just try it!

CD/DVD Label Maker tip #2: How to use both CD labels on a sheet
When you print, simply change the number of copies to 2 or more and the print preview will show that both CD labels on the sticker sheet will be used.  This will save you from having to print, rotate the paper and then print again when printing multiple copies of the same CD label!

Note: The software cannot batch print different label designs at the same time.
