Re: Hidden tracks on cd?

I have an autechre ep with a "pre-track" on it. If I recall correctly 
you need to press play first, let it play for a second, and THEN rewind 
it. Also IIRC you can do this with CD architect, but I think you have to 
turn off some settings regarding red book compliance ;)
