So 14 real tracks. track 15 is a 5 mins of silence. track 16 is the 'secret track'

That way, when folks rip the CD, they can just throw track 15 off of their playlist...& also, track 14 will show the correct running length in the CD player, so won't scare a Radio DJ when they load it on their system !

Won't be very hidden or secret if people can just skip right to it with the Track Forward button.

You can put the track in the pre gap of track fifteen by choosing 'audio starts in gap' on the track index window. This way, when track 14 is done playing, a countdown will begin to track 15 before 0:00 of track 15. Any blank space you want must be at the beginning of track 15 file. Then when track 15 is over, the counter will say 0:00.
So if you try to skip to track 15, all you'll hear is some silence, unless you rewind before track 15 to however long the song is.
Kinda confusing, but once you figure it out it's pretty cool.
