While hiring the best company for your CD duplication is the only way to ensure that you are getting the best quality copies there are some things that you can do as well to ensure great sound quality. The key is to remember that the process of duplication doesn’t enhance the sound or remove any noises in the original; all it does is make an accurate copy of that original you submit.
The top CD duplication companies provide a range of different instructions for you to submit your original. It is important to completely read through those instructions and follow them accurately both for the actual duplication of the CD as well as when submitting any artwork or design layout for the case or CD.
Uploading for CD Duplication
While some companies may require a hard CD master you can also upload your audio CD to top companies providing you use the correct format. Most companies offering CD duplication will accept the uploaded master but it will have to be in DDP or Disc Description Protocol. Other types of data CDs can also be uploaded using an ISO or disc image file.
It is important not to send other types of audio files as this will only delay your order. Sometimes people assume that mp3 discs or files can be interchanged and used with CD duplication, but this is not the case.
Ensure Top Quality Originals
It may seem obvious but any background noise or sound distortion on the original file or CD master is going to be repeated through the CD duplication process. The company does not “clean up” the tracks or the disc, so getting the best possible quality original file or disc is absolutely critical.
This means using top quality equipment throughout the production and recording. Even something as simple as a poor quality microphone can have a major impact on the quality of your original. Every aspect of the recording should be done professionally and exactly how you want it to be copied.
When you are choosing a CD duplication service always choose a company with a proven track record in the media industry. You want experience, expertise and top quality duplication equipment working for you on your order.
