|audio cdr / ddp image - which Format for your replication master?
image file option
This delivery format contains an image of your
project. It's a series of data files that can be
read by CD replicators. These are not music
files that can be played on a standard CD player.
These are strictly data files and represent the most
of submitting your project to a
replicator. However, some CD replicators do not
accept DDP Image files. It's best to check with your
replicator of choice before proceeding with this format
audio cdr (the
most common option)
This delivery format is an Audio CDR that can be played on
standard CD players. It's
accepted by most CD replicators, but
can be problematic if
not prepared properly. All audio CDs and CDRs contain Digital
Errors For a CD replicator to accept a CDR master,
it must be within their specifications as outlined in the preceding
link. You can be sure that our Audio CDR
are properly prepared and are well within the
specifications of CD replicators. When
choosing this option, we provide you with written
documentation on the quality of your master. The
sound quality of your replicated CDs will be identical
whether you choose a DDP Image
file, or an Audio CDR as your replication master.
You can select your preferred option on our Project
Please Note: If you're going to have your CD
duplicated rather than replicated, It can only be
duplicated from an Audio CDR. Therefore, you should choose
the Audio CDR option.
When choosing the Audio CDR option, you must send the
physical disc to your replicator. When choosing the
DDP Image File option, you can either send the physical
disc, or upload the data files from the disc directly
to your replicator.
Whether you choose the Audio
CDR option, or the DDP Image File option, you can be sure that the master we
prepare for you will be of the highest quality.
