Comment by rakslice
about Sony CD Architect Jun 2011

In addition to CD burning features, CD Architect has extensive multitrack support, with adjustable track starts and ends with several types of fades in a DAW-like UI and has full support for DirectShow effects (putting effects on individual tracks or the master). I appreciate that some people see "CD Architect" and just use it for burning CDs, but for what many people use it for, an "alternative" that can't do audio mixing beyond crossfading a fixed number of seconds isn't really a good alternative.
