I guess you've found you get better results when you manually split 
the files from your LP session than depend on auto-splitting.  Needle 
noise usually messes that up.

And Gracenote can only recognize digital signatures that are created 
from the exact digital image of a CD that has been ripped before by 
someone. Party mixes and your project of course won't be recognized.

The best plan is to transfer with, then name the regions as song 
titles in Sound Studio, use the split regions to aiff files feature 
and then import the AIFFs into iTUnes. The named AIF files will 
appear in the lists and the onboard label printing or external 
printing pgms can use the info.
