For mastering my old albums to CD I use audacity for the recording & cleanup,
then use gcdmaster to create the CDs. It won't auto-split into tracks, but
the gui shows a waveform of your wav file - you can then position track
markers wherever you like & burn to CD. I always found gramofile seemed to
chop tracks a little short with it's autosplitting & I could never tweak it
just the way I liked it. This way, if I want individual tracks, I just use
the CD: grip -> ogg vorbis (gotta love my iRiver!). I find doing it that way
that the tracks don't end so abruptly and fade-outs properly fade out.

Now if audacity had this ability to apply track markers & generate a TOC file
for cdrdao, I wouldn't need gcdmaster at all ;-)
