Default What do you use to burn REAPER bin/cue in Linux?

Just wondering what other people use (with an emphasis on GUI apps). In the past I have exclusively used CLI and specifically cdrdao with the --swap option given that it expects a BIN file to be big endian whereas REAPER generates a little-endian BIN. I've forgotten this a couple of times and ended up with static noise coasters

Anyhow, just wondering if something like K3B is clever enough to figure out the big/little endian thing before I waste a blank CD-R (only a handful left on my spindle). Despite it now being 2022, I have a good number of clients that still like pay for a couple of discs so they can easily play on their aging but very expensive hi-fi systems.

As far as I can tell, xfburn is a no-go...

Problem with Brasero, AFAIK, is that it can only do TAO and not DAO (if you go the individual track files route).

Ah, ok
I just burn CDs for one guy, the only one left lol
All the CDs I made for him work on his old players (not computers)
I think I have two blank CDs left, that'll last me one year
What's Disk At Once for?

DAO is for when you absolutely don't want any silence between tracks such as on live albums where the background noise continues through the whole disc, or where two or more songs/movements might naturally follow on without gap/pause.

I suppose I'll just stick with the cdrdao cli route and maybe create an alias so I never forget the --swap option

The only other slightly more cumbersome way I can think of is creating a DDP in REAPER and then using ddpinfo -w (http://ddp.andreasruge.de/) to generate a wav/cue combo that cdrdao can handle with no other options required.

Now that REAPER has r8brain free as the samplerate converter it's great to generate everything in the box.

Hi Beth,
may I ask, just out of curiosity, why that --swap option, please?

Yes, that part I did realized, but why use it if burning reaper-created WAV/CUE ??
Is there any bug or what in "cdrdao"?

see first post.

I see that you can still get the latest version of Nero for Linux, but I don't know if it will work today, I haven't had a DVD drive in X years. The support allegedly ended sometime around 2010

REAPER creates BIN (not WAV) + CUE. But its BIN file is little-endian not big-endian as expected by cdrdao. So, no, it's not a fault with cdrdao. Honestly, I find it odd that REAPER doesn't instead create WAV+CUE by default given I've always associated BIN files with data disc rips. It would be nice to have the option even if said option is buried deep in a settings menu. Indeed, it should probably be default for Linux given I can't find any GUI app that can handle BIN/CUE.

You can render a long WAV and then create a CUE with latest scripts from MPL but for me it was always a workaround because there was no built-in SoX or r8brain so I did all my distribution formats outside of REAPER from a hi-res WAV/CUE master.

A quick update: Nero Linux 3.5.x (AUR) and 4.0 (rpm link above in quote) both directly burn a BIN/CUE from REAPER! For any Manjaro/Arch users, I simply copied the included files in the rpm into the relevant directories (/etc & /usr). Thanks for the tip, Martblek! I suppose it might be worth my while to create a pkgbuild file...

Thank you, BethHarmon, it's kind of you to share this info. Although I don't do much CD burning these days, I still need it very occasionally (I used to use ISOburn on Windows), so it's good to know about this all-Linux solution as I continue to gradually migrate!

Oh, I see, thank you for explanation Beth.
I thought it can be that, but was not really sure it can make compatibility problems these days.
