Reaper - advice please on burning to CD

I'm trying out Reaper software for the first time. I'm new to this and have got to the stage of creating six audio tracks (not using midi at all) for one song. I know how to mix them but can anyone tell me please the stages I have to go through now to burn the song to an audio CD? Thanks in advance.

when in doubt... Wiki! The below link tells you how to render your song out of Reaper. Once you have an audio file, (whether it be .wav or .mp3 or something else) you can just burn that to an Audio CD with Nero or other burning software. Windows also has a built in audio burning program powered by Roxio.

Also - once you've got several songs rendered out to WAV files (which is what you should choose over MP3 when looking to burn a CD), you'll probably want to normalize the volumes of the songs, perhaps when burning them to CD even. For example, Nero has a normalize setting - just drop the tracks into a blank nero audio cd window, highlight all the songs, right-click -> Properties -> Filters , tick NORMALIZE, and select MAXIMUM for the normalization method, and then select something like 95%. Then apply the filter.

That will ensure all your songs are burnt to the cd at a similar volume, instead of accidentally making a cd of your songs where one is super quiet and the next happens to be super loud.
