I think
  1. everyone will have at least a couple of these songs...
  2. don't think anyone will have all of them
  3. I thought maybe one of them, no one would have and
  4. one of them everyone will have.

But on further reflection, I'm sure you'll take care of No. 3

As far as my experience goes, any of that stuff has no effect on burning. Only playback within iTunes.

I learned today that it makes a huge difference in the rip.

I have a custom equalizer setting ('cause I like midtones).  It's not extreme at all, but it blew out something in a couple songs so that they sounded staticky — both in iTunes and on the CD.  I thought there was something wrong with my song, so I actually re-ripped from a cd... and it did the same thing.  That's when I looked at the equalizer.  When I set it to flat, the static went away.
 
I am very confident that something else is going on. Your experience notwithstanding, I can't find any information that tells me the EQ settings modify the songs when burning.

Yes, always rip flat, no EQ's or extra settings.  You can affect the tracks later and see how they work or don't work later.  Remastering music (thanks to Aram) has become my primary hobby now and there are some songs that come out great the first time, some that take many versions and mucho hours to get right, and some that never work.  If you ever uploaded the stuff I used to put up in the journals, you will know what I mean.  What I do now is way different from what I used to do.  I think I've gotten better at it.  I guess some of you will find out when its my turn to burn.  And how long a song, eek, I guess it depends on the groove you're working on.  Judge that on playback, you can't please everyone, just look at the song comments.  Go with your gut and heart, that's what this is about, at least to me.

I always like to include at least one 8 minute or so jam right in the middle.  You know, once the listener is in the groove.  Something to really sink into.  And then a quick splash in the face afterwards to make sure they haven't fallen asleep.

I tried to use its start and end time function to clip silence at the starts and ends to tighten up segues and it worked great in playback but the ripped CD it's back to 0:00 for all songs.
 

I use the button that fixes the loudness so one song isn't at a totally different volume as the next.  Whichever that button is.  And it is vital - VITAL - since my songs come from such different sources.

I've clipped songs but had to permanently change them.  I kept a back up copy of the original, of course.

And yes, every single time I have to relearn how to do the entire thing because no one likes keeping their perfectly good software exactly as it is.  And no one seems to think that keeping buttons in the same spot version to version is a priority.  Not that I'm bitter.

How the heck did you people find room for 20 songs? I am making my list now, and searching still for a couple of songs. But the 15 i have so far will barely fit on one CD.

I barely squeezed 16. 

It depends on the CD and on how long the songs are! 

And what edie said.

Um... another question...

I screwed up the sound on my test tape because I had tweaked the equalizer.

I figure I'll set the equalizer to flat.

Any other suggestions or advice??
