      "company mergers leave consumers without support."

      November 20, 2012   |   By jatibi

      Version: CD Spin Doctor 6.1.2

      Pros

      Not much....

      Cons

      Many of the features of CD Spin Doctor was have been broken by updates to OS-X. Capture plug in was broken with 10.6.2. This is also when Roxio was acquired by Corel. Spin Doctor X

      Summary

      CD Spin Doctor was part of Toast Titanium 10 (Toast Titanium 11 has Spin Doctor X) Toast was published by Roxio. They were acquired by Corel a few years ago and this product is no longer being supported or updated by Corel/Roxio. CD Spin Doctor was actually not created by Sonic Solutions. Unfortunately Sonic solutions also has been acquired by Rovi.

      Based on their website they don't support CD Spin Doctor (Or Spin Doctor X) directly and with Corel leaving Toast by the wayside I can't recommend either of these products.

      Of note: Corel does at least make the appearance of trying to support Toast, although their support portal simply runs you in circles without actually finding any answer or being able to submit a ticket about toast.

      "Problematic in Lion; then, even worse after upgrade."

      November 05, 2011   |   By caponsacchi

      Version: CD Spin Doctor 6.1.2

      Pros

      Useful for converting LPs to digital.

      Cons

      Wave lines are virtually worthless for precise editing. Color and design outweighs function. Has no timer for setting recording made away from home on different days. Program does what it says it can do about 50% of the time (it's betrayed me numerous times when sending a file to iTunes that later proved unplayable or unedited). Roxio support is as cosmetic as their product.

      Summary

      Worth keeping an eye on but not purchasing until the company becomes serious about functionality and quality control. Recently, the program repeatedly produced DSSCoreAudio obstacle whenever I tried to use it. After download, it produced nothing. Wouldn't even open.

      "A piece of rubbish!"

      October 25, 2011   |   By phillat5dock

      Version: CD Spin Doctor 6.1.2

      Pros

      Little to find good when it is so hopeless!

      Cons

      I updated to Toast 11 Titanium from my existing Toast 10 Titanium mainly to get an up to date version of Spin Doctor and because I foolishly believed the advertising hype that has been sent to
      me for months that Toast 11 would be better, and that "Roxio Toast 11 with Spin Doctor makes it easy to recapture old favourites".

      Spin Doctor X is a disgraceful product.
      It is so full of bugs and inconsistencies that I am quite amazed that a company like Roxio would even think of releasing it in such an unfinished form.
      Spin Doctor X crashes, but worse than that, I found after three attempts at defining tracks that track names don't stick, there is no way of saving the file after each change to avoid losing data, menus just migrate over the screen and other issues.

      I have also discovered, after moving to Mac OS X Lion in the last day, that CD Spin Doctor in Toast 10 works.

      So why would I want to upgrade to a product that fails so miserably?


      Very unhappy.

      Summary

      Unfortunately this software in included in the Toast 11 Titanium download or CD. If you still have Toast 10 don't trash it. You can still use CD Spin Doctor in Lion.

      "Nothing simple about this and very buggy."

      January 29, 2011   |   By charbs51

      Version: CD Spin Doctor 6.1.2

      Pros

      Can't think of any.

      Cons

      Crashes repeatedly on my iMAC. Plus you cannot actually create a CD with CD Spin Doctor, you have to spend another $50 for Toast. Wasted several hours recording music before discovering this. Tech support is poor.

      Summary

      Will be asking for a refund.

      "Don't bet on it working!"

      January 08, 2011   |   By maggielondon2000

      Version: CD Spin Doctor 6.1.2

      Pros

      it's great when it works. which is rarely!

      Cons

      tried to get CDSD 6.0 to work on snow-leopard. only available update online was 6.1.1-doesn't work. many emails with roxio 'techsupport,' they finally gave up and refunded my money. check roxio support forums - MANY people having trouble with CDSD.

      Summary

      roxio apparently doesn't want to support this product independent of toast. question is - do you want to support their bottom line by buying their buggy software?
