I record my church's services and, after editing, I burn the audio onto CD's. My problem is that recently I have more audio than the CD can take.
I am aware that video can be compressed so that a DVD holds much more but can it be done with audio?
I have Audacity but have not used it - too complicated for me!
I am burning the CD's using Nero from a mixture of .wav and mp3.
Are you recommending the whole thing is converted to a single mp3 file? Is that file then just copied to the CD?
The concept of a single mp3 file does not fit with the model: I separate distinct parts of the service into tracks so people can easily repeat some bits and skip others. The longest part is the sermon that is about 30-40 minutes and is in mp3 format ready to be "dropboxed" onto our web site for a wider audience.
The length of the service exceeds 80 minutes by anything from 10 to 20 minutes.
