Can I send a DDP File? Yes, a Disc Description Protocol is a format used for CD duplication or CD replication. This file has embedded CD text, ISRC codes and UPC codes.
What are ISRC codes and how do I get them? ISRC, or International Standard Recording Codes, are 12-digit unique identifiers for your recordings. They allow an artist or label to track sales, airplay and royalties. ISRC codes are required by most digital distribution companies and music purchasing sites in order to sell your music online. This is different from a UPC code, which is used to track physical merchandise like CD’s and vinyl. Apply for ISRC codes, and learn more about them, at www.usisrc.org.
WHAT IS DUPLICATION? The content of your master is transferred to a hard drive. Then, the data residing on the hard drive is 'burned', meaning it is transferred bit for bit to a pre-manufactured write once CD-R. From small orders from 1 unit to the many 1000's we can support you with all your CD duplication requirements.
CD authoring are set at £15.00 per order plus VAT.
