Watch for a filename length issue in iTunes
Authored by: silentway on Feb 24, '05 03:28:43PM
Yes, indeed, seamless crossfade is possible with compressed audio files, and Apple has not implemented it (yet). There are plenty of pro-level DJ apps that crossfade seamlessly, instead of the non-seamless "fade-out-then-fade-in" method. eg. Traktor DJ Studio 2. They do it by loading the files into memory first.
And, to bring the thread back on-topic, I once hit the 255 character limit in the title of a song (from Flaming Lips' "Soft Bulletin"). (This was with an older iTunes, though.) After entering it manually (not via CDDB), the CD would lock up my Mac. I had to manually hack the iTunes Library file to remove the entry before it would eject!
