DAEMON Tools Lite 10.14.0 – is one of the many tools available for digital audio work, music production and mixing. It is used by those that like to record, convert and mix their own music. This authoring and recording software has been developed by DAEMON Technologies Ltd. The company also produces Music Maker 1.
What You Have to Get From DAEMON Tools Lite 10.14.0
DAEMON Tools Lite 10.14.0 is a stand-alone disk image and virtual drive authoring tool for Microsoft Windows and Mac OS X. It can be used on all versions of these operating systems. With the use of a CD or DVD to mount the virtual drives, all the components of DAEMON Tools Lite are ready to use. There are four partitions that make up the DAEMON Tools Lite virtual drive.
One partition is dedicated to the graphical user interface, one to the command line interface, one to the library of computer code for the application in question and one to the actual data files. The fourth partition is intended for use with the Linux operating system.
When you first open the DAEMON Tools Lite 10.14.0 setup window, you will see a boot menu prompt. From this point, it is a simple matter of copying the installation CD to your desktop and then following the on-screen instructions to install the program.
Once installed, you can launch the program and use it to record your own music. If you already have some physical CDs saved as a backup, then DAEMON Tools Lite will allow you to use these physical discs to back up any of the music you want to burn to a CD or DVD.
In order to use DAEMON Tools Lite 10.14.0 with Linux, you need to have the supermount utility installed on your Linux machine. Supermount allows Linux to properly execute the setup CD after it boots up. Then you need to mount the DAEMON Tools Lite disc image onto your Linux system and then mount the DAEMON Lite virtual drives. Supermount will allow the DAEMON Tool to read the files from the disk image. To permanently mount the disc image, you can use the ‘hoffs’ command that Linux comes with.
By default, DAEMON Tools Lite will mount all three types of disc images. You may want to change this behaviour though by using the –permanent-mounted option. This will cause DAEMON Tools Lite to mount all three virtual drives – CD/DVD – directly instead of the daemon’s virtual drives. You may find this Makes Programming The DAEMON Software Easier!
Now that you have your new DAEMON Tools Lite 10.14.0, let’s go back to the question at hand: How do I burn music to my Linux machine? The answer lies in the Linux Music Master Disc burner that is bundled with your operating system. You can use this program to read and write music information to both your CD-R and CD-RW discs.
If you have a desktop computer, you are ready to go; if you are on a laptop, you are going to have to connect your laptop to your Linux computer via a USB cable for the data to flow properly.
