I need to know how to increase track external recording.
I am mixing non-stop music from an external source and recording into my CD recorder. The entire mix has only one track. There are 14 songs in the mix. I would to know how to do the tracking so that the CD will have 14 tracks. Please help

What you need to do is find an option called "normalise" this makes the sound at the same level for all tracks on the CD. However I should point out that even some commercial discs are recorded at much greater levels then are needed. In otherwords they are loud!
You can use a free software audio editing and recording program called Audacity. Using this program load your stereo track(s) into Audacity, then look in the effects menu and select normalize. Make sure to set highest loudness level to 0 db, which is the maximum digital volume level. You can hear the difference in volume when you use the test button. If you can't still get enough over all volume level with the normalize feature then you will need to compress and limit the stereo track, but I don't suggest getting your over all loudness levels that high because it ruins and lowers the dynamics of your music. Another words when you compress and boost the over all loudness of your album then all your music is at the same highest audio level which is very ear fatiguing. It may sound better to you at first at louder volume levels but you will quickly learn to hate it over time because it does not sound natural. That is why most music today is all about loudness and ear fatigue. And because of the loudness wars going on today every Record company is trying to have the loudest album out there thinking it will sell more copies. It is all false baloney, it really should be about the quality and dynamics of your sound instead of how loud it is.
MANUAL RECORDING FROM COMPUTER HEADPHONE SOCKET.. FIRST RIGHT LEAD REQUIRED YOU NEED STEREO 3.5mm stero jack plug to lef right phono male leads...
prepare for manual record place jack in computer headphone socket. check correct socket play track on computer their should be no sound. if sound present in wrong socket... if ok place phono left right into analogue aux inputs on cdr recorder.next make shure you have blank scratch free cd .next press ext(ernal) source repeatedly until the required input is selected i.e digital analogue optical etc..when auto track is on the disk will number automatically.with auto track on it their needs to be 2.7 second gap to rec number change. with the recorder stopped press rec type five times to enter in the manual record standby mode. manual start s to flash and the display shows REC EXT MAN followed by WAIT.after a few seconds press record . play the source track ie on your computer to set record level on cd recorder.. adjust audio card settings or volume control on pc etc .rotate easy jog/enter key until on the record /play level bar all the blue led are alight but not the red( clipping) display shows xx decibel eg 3bd. stop the source material (track on computer get ready to record ii.e to start track again..to start recording set you track going wilst pressing RECORD on the cd recorder, and immediatley the source material playing. the track number and recording time left appear in display . if check input message is displayed check the connections are correct etc .to stop recording press stop on cd recorder . update lights up and arrow goes out. after recording display will show UPDATE FOR SEVERAL SECONDS WRITTING TOC.. IF YOU WANT TO PLAY THIS DISC ON NORMAL CD PLAYERS YOU NEED TO FINALIZE THE TRACK . HOPE THIS HELPS..yammandan.
• To switch off the Auto Track function you have to enter
If you wish to increase track numbers manually, press
TRACK INCR(ement) on the remote control. For further
instructions see Menu mode.
ON (AUTO): The track increments are automatically taken over
from the digital source material or after 2.7
seconds silence during analog recording.
OFF (MANUAL): While recording track numbers can be
incremented manually by pressing TRACK
INCR(ement) on the remote control.
(Minimum track length is 4 sec.) (This can
also be done in Auto track ON mode.)
First off I assume you have the manual for you're 5700. if not a PDF copy is here http://ec1.images-amazon.com/media/i3d/01/A/man-migrate/MANUAL000027911.pdf
Assuming you have a standalone tape deck that has phono inputs and outputs connection and recording recording should be easily achieved. Forget the coaxial unless of course your tape deck has digital outputs. Assuming it hasn't just connect the two output sockets from the tape dec which may be labelled REC out left and REC out right to the Line in (L) and Line (R) of the CD recorder. The physical setup is now complete. The increment level they refer to in the manual offers you a choice of 3 final decibel output levels in other words how loud it will be when it is finally recorded onto the disc.
the last paragraph on page 16 is relevant to the setup described above.
Page 15 of your manual is all you need to achieve tape transfer to CD. follow the steps below and choose ANALOG the source to be played is your tape deck so once the process has begun press the play button on your tape deck and you should get a decent recording. Leave everything else at their default settings until you get a better understanding of how to tweak your recordings. Personally I transfer audio tapes directly to my PC and Audio edit them until they are perfect but I've been doing this for years.
here's a snippet
To record from an external source: 1. Turn power ON. 2. Place a recordable audio disc (CD-R or CD-RW) label side up in TRAY II. 3. Close TRAY II. (When a blank disc is placed in TRAY II, the display will show BLANK.) 4. Press INPUT until the source you want to record is selected. DIGITAL OPTICAL: record a source connected to the DIGITAL IN (OPTICAL) terminal. DIGITAL COAXIAL: record a source connected to the DIGITAL IN (COAXIAL) terminal. ANALOG: record a source connected to the analog LINE IN jacks. 5. Select the desired mode of track division (track number assignment) by pressing the MANUAL/AUTO button (see the ADVANCED RECORDING section for more information). 6. Press the RECORD button. The unit enters record pause mode. The PAUSE [ ] icon and REC blink on the display. 7. Press the PLAY (ENTER) [ ] button of TRAY II to start recording. 8. Play the source to be recorded. • During digital recording, if the input signal stops for 5 seconds, recording will stop. • During analog recording, if the input signal stops for 20 seconds, recording will stop. • If the unit detects copy-prohibit signals during recording, CAN’T COPY appears on the display and recording is stopped. To stop recording: Press the STOP  button To temporarily pause recording: Press the PAUSE [ ] button. Remember that every time recording is paused or stopped, a new track number will be assigned.
The 788 can be used to play music from a SCSI attached CD-RW drive, but the record (and all other mixing functions) are disabled so you are not able to record the CD output onto a track using the SCSI attached drive.
Your options are:
1.) Rip tracks files from the CD onto you PC as wav files. You'll have rip (or later convert) those files to mono 16 or 24 bit wav files at 44.1kHz, use the old dos 8.3 naming convention for the filenames, and them burn them onto a CD-R or CD-RW as data files which can then be taken and imported into the 788.
2.) Play the CD through with an external CD player or stereo and route the output into an input on the 788. Assign the input to a track and record. Be careful to use a line level output, like an aux out (or try the CD player's outputs directly into the 788) if you are using a stereo. Avoid using a speaker output as the signal from a speaker output will be too strong and can damage the 788.
I'm not totally familiar with that Boss Digital Audio Workstation but it sounds like what you want to do is record both the music and vocal track at the same time. If that's the case I believe you can push both "Line" and "Mic" input buttons (perhaps not exactly named as such) at the same time to record both simultaneously. Otherwise I would suggest copying the music to it's own stereo track (or two individual tracks, each panned opposite from one another to maintain stereo) and then record your vocal track separately. That way you can record several takes and edit down the best parts to one final track.
I hope that helps.
