  1. hej fra Copenhagen 😉

    a refinement on your point about ‘gaps’ in opera: you are of course right in
    suggesting ‘single track recording’ but note one cannot access a particular
    e.g. aria.

    Solution/workaround

    1. download the excellent free snap’n’drag prog from ambrosia.com

    2. load the cd into the mac; it appears in iTunes

    3. access CDDB for track details

    4. launch snap’n’drag and take a picture of ‘Window’

    5. record cd as single track as per your suggestion

    6. drag snap’n’drag jpg (see 4) into the artwork window of the single cd track

    7. when listening to the cd, access the artwork/snap’n’drtag window page for
    approxomation of when e.g. a particular aria is playing

    Thus all is accessed from within iTunes

    Hope that helps

    • It’s SnapzPro, and you can even use the Finder on the Mac: just press
      Command+Shift+4, then use the cross-hair cursor to select an area of the
      screen to shoot.

      Yes, it’s a good idea to keep a record like that; it’s just as easy, perhaps, to
      scan the liner notes…
