CD ripping software, you can take audio tracks

from a CD and them into audio files for use on

your computer. You can save them as WAV, MP3, OGG,

or WMA audio files. The term "ripping" is the

term used to describe this very process.

same audio files for your computer.

how good the software is - if you can't use it.

When you explore the options of CD ripper software,

make sure you also check the software's editing

abilities. With most programs, you can select

the output format for the music. This will

include the bitrate, channels, and even the


Quality ripper programs will also tag the

encoded audio files with medadata, which will

contain information about the artist, song title,

track number, and even the album title. This

will automatically be input for the file.

Another great feature with some ripper programs

is the ability to delete the silence at the

beginning or end of song tracks. Some programs

will even give you the ability to edit the

songs themselves, giving you full control of

the sound provided by your files.

For those who enjoy to listen to their music

from a CD, a CD ripper can aso be used to

select your favorite songs and create a mixed

CD. Some rippers will even let you rip audio

tracks directly from a CD then burn them to a

new CD - without having to save them as a new

audio file.

Intro To Cd Mastering

(category: Cd-Duplication, Word count: 436)
Share this article on: Facebook, Twitter, Whatsapp

Even though many assume that the mixing of the

seperate audio tracks is the final step, a recording

should always be mastered well in order to sound

great. CD mastering is the final chance for

creative input when you create a compact disc.

After the discs has been mastered, it can be printed,

reproduced, and then sold.

The process of mastering a CD actually involves

several steps. The first step is putting the songs,

or tracks at this point in the correct order. The

length of time between the songs is also adjusted,

along with the editing of the songs. Any unlisted

or secret songs on the CD are normally added at

this point as well.

There are several ways that you can go about

mastering a CD. First of all, the mix can be

sent to a professional CD mastering engineer,

which is what professional musicians normally

decide to do.

The mastering engineers will often work in their

own mastering facilities, which are very different

from standard studios, in the fact that they have

much less gear and are designed for the best

possible playback of the mix as possible in

order to fix anything that's wrong.

Aside from mastering engineers, CDs can also be

mastered at home using computer software. This

option is normally more realistic for unsigned

artists or musicians who are just starting out

with their music. Depending on the software

quality and skill of the individual doing the

mastering, the CD may turn out perfect or it

may sound very unprofessional.

You can also refer to online CD mastering as

another option. Cds that are mastered online

can be great, as instead of sending a mix to a

mastering engineer, the mix is instead sent

via the Internet. To do this, you'll need a

high speed Internet connection.

The cheapest way to go about mastering a CD is

with free mastering. Artists and musicians may

choose to use free mastering programs with

demos or other earlier recordings that artists

will use to send to major record labels to

generate some interest in their music.

The major differences with a professional CD

and an amateur recording is normally found in

the mastering. Every song that you hear played

on the radio is thoroughly mastered in order

to sound better.

While you can master using free programs or

your computer, a professional CD mastering

engineer is normally the best way to do business

if your band is looking to make a profit from

your music.

Copy Like A Professional

(category: Cd-Duplication, Word count: 310)

Anyone who has burned CDs in the past has had to

have encountered this problem - your CD doesn't

want to play in certain CD players. You've probably

tried switching to a different brand of disks,

switching the writing speed of your CD burning

software, and yet nothing seems to work.

Most professional CDs that are purchased from a

retail outlet such as Circuit City or Best Buy

works in any type of CD player, which probably makes

you wonder what they are doing that your not. All

of us wonder this, especially when out duplicated

CDs don't want to play back like they should.

Much to the contrary, it's because the music

industry burns their CDs differently. Instead

of simply duplicating CDs, the music industry

chooses to replicate CDs. Even though the

terminology may seem synonymous, the process is

actually totally different.

CD replication is used for the mass production of

CDs, which is normally more than 500. Instead

of writing the data to a CD using a laser as

with duplication, CD replication uses a glass

master to stamp (or press) the data onto the

disc. This helps to eliminate almost all of the

issues associated with playability that are

encountered when burning CDs at home. CD

replication is a far superior process of burning


Important to note, is the superior quality of

CDs that are pressed using replication doesn't

come cheap. Even when using independant CD

duplication companies such as Absolute Disc or

Oasis, there is still going to be a very high

cost associated with the replication of disks.

For your next project, try having your CDs

replicated rather than duplicated. This will

ensure your project is very high quality, even

though you'll need to order more than 500 CDs

to recive this process.

With the increasing amount of CD duplication options

for equipment, its very important that you read the

reviews for the different types of equipment you

are considering before you make that final decision

and choose your model.

The best CD duplication equipment for your project

will all depend on the volume of CDs you plan to

duplicate at a time, and the amount of money that

you are planning to invest on a particular piece of


Your best source for reading reviews of CD duplication

equipment is on the Internet. There are many

different consumer websites out there that will allow

users to post reviews of equipment, then rate them

on a five or ten point scale. Anytime you are

reading reviews, it's very important that you get

your information from a trusted and reliable source.

Websites that are up by the owner of the product, or

those that are trying to sell you specific hardware

normally aren't the best to turn to when you need to

read a review. No one who is trying to get you to

buy a certain piece of hardware is going to tell

you about the flaws the equipment has, or even let

you know about a competitor who has a similiar item

for sale at half the price.

All across the internet, you can find many different

websites that offer the information you seek. There

are several that offer forums, where other users

will tell you honest opinions and give you feedback

about the equipment they own. This can be a great

way to find out about the duplication equipment

your interested in and what else is available for

you to purchase.

Another excellent place to look for CD duplication

equipment reviews is trade magazines and even

electronic magazines. Magazines will normally test

equipment then share their their opinions with their

readers. Always be sure when you are reading a

review that it's an article sponsored by the

magazine and not a paid advertisement.

CD duplication reviews of equipment are a great

resource when trying to find a piece of equipment

to use. With so many on the market, its always

good to have resources when you need to make

an important decision. A review will also tell you

everything the label and description of the

product leaves out, which can help to ensure you

get the best piece of duplication equipment for

your hard earned money.

Copying CDs is something that is very popular now more

than ever. When CD burners and duplication was first

introduced, people caught on although it wasn't nearly

as popular as it is today. These days, millions of

people throughout the world copy audio, data, and

even video to CDs.

To make a copy of a CD, you'll need a master to copy,

a blank disk, a CD-RW drive, and the proper software.

Most newer computers include either a CD-RW or DVD-RW

drive. If your computer is older, you'll need to go

out and buy the drive, which doesn't cost much money

and is very easy to install.

If you have a DVD-RW drive, you'll be able to copy

both CDs and DVDs. The rate of copying will vary,

with 4X being the slowest and up to 48X being the

fastest. If your drive supports 48X, you can duplicate

a CD in a matter of minutes.

Once you have the CD-RW or DVD-RW drive and some

blank CD-R media, all you need is the software to

duplicate. Nero is among the most popular, as well

as Sonic Record Now and Easy CD Creator. There are

many different types out there, from those that cost

money to the freeware software that doesn't cost

anything to use.

Once you have everything you need, simply run the

software and create your disk. You can copy many

types of media, including pictures, video, audio,

and even data from your computer. Depending on what

you want to copy, all need to do is select it from the

software menu and let it rip.

CD duplication is a lot of fun and easy for everyone

to learn as well. You can back up a lot of things,

or just save pictures of your special memories - the

choices are entirely up to you.

Just a short while ago, the only people who had

access to CD duplication were professional musicians,

record company executives, and the higher end

recording studios. As technology increased and

became more affordable, private CD duplication

companies began to pop up all over the United States

and other major music centers throughout the country.

These days, CD duplication has never been more

accessible or more affordable. Most home computers

and laptops come with a CD-RW burner and software

that is very user friendly, making CD duplication

very convenient.

Even if you are new to computers, you'll find

CD duplication very easy to figure out. You don't

have to be a computer expert to use the CD-RW

burner or the software, as most of it is self

explanitory. All you need to do is give it a run

and see easy things actually are.

Those who are needing a large quantity of CDs

duplicated or simply wish to have a professional

company burn their CDs, there are several out there

that offer great rates, package deals, and quality

recordings. You can get as many as you want, with

quality that matches that of the master copy.

Most CD duplication companies offer packages that

will include inserts, tray cards, and even

packaging should you choose to take your duplicates

to retail sale.

You can also choose to have your graphic work

imprinted on the inserts or have the CD duplication

company design a totally new design for your very

product. If you are worried about the inventory,

barcodes can be imprinted on the CD case or the

sleeve by the same company.

For whatever duplication needs you may have, there

are companies out there that offer duplication or

you can do it yourself. Either way you choose,

you'll get the copies you need in no time at all.

Disc Quality

(category: Cd-Duplication, Word count: 291)

The high demand and dramatic increase in CD media,

plus the competitive pressures to squeeze out

every possible cost and improve the profit margins

have given rise to many manufacturers of CD related

media. To help reduce the costs of increasing

capacity, many of these firms have relocated their

old manufacturing lines and hired staff that learn

on the job.

The biggest problems with CDs occurs when discs are

produced using older equipment then end up failing

when you try to use them. Luckily, most of these

types will fail when you first try to record on

them. There is however, a likelihood that the disc

will complete a burn and the media won't play at


The agony of taking your photo or video treasures

and putting them on CD or DVD and then deleting them

from your camera or computer only to realize that

the copy is corrupted is far too much to risk. The

brand name company's such as Verbatim choose to

guard their reputation for quality and durability

by using only advanced recording dye and other

types of technology to produce high speed discs.

The stability of the recording dye is very critical

as heat, humidity, oxygen, and even UV light can

degrade the dye. Verbatim research has also proven

there is a strong correlation between the production

and bonding processes of disc quality.

For data and personal pictures that are important,

you should always buy quality CD media. Then,

before you go ahead and delete the source file,

trying playing the disc back to ensure that it

copied correctly. This way, you won't have to

worry about losing your precious files and photos

when you remove the source from your computer.

Musicians And Cd Duplication

(category: Cd-Duplication, Word count: 306)
Share this article on: Facebook, Twitter, Whatsapp

These days, technology is always available for any

inspiring musician to record, create, and even

duplicate CDs. The duplication of CDs will involve

CD-R media. CD-R media prices have dropped a lot

over the last several years, making them affordable

for anyone who wants to use them.

If your band is ready to start selling CDs, your

best option may be to have your CDs replicated.

Replicated CDs are the same CDs that you'll find

in music stores by major label artists. They all

have excellent artwork printed on the CD inserts,

nice tray card inserts, screened art on the CD,

and they are even shrink wrapped.

The retail CDs that you buy aren't duplicated, they

are replicated. This means that an exact replica

of your master CD has been stamped out on all of

the other CDs. If you are serious about selling

your music for profit, replication is the way to


The fact is, most stores simply won't sell duplicated

CDs. Duplicated CDs can be against the law,

which is the main reason retail stores simply

won't carry them. Replicated CDs let the stores

know that the CD is legit, and they will almost

always carry those CDs.

For musicians and inspiring bands, CD duplication

can tend to be a bit more expensive than that

of replication. To duplicate CDs, you need a

computer with a CD burner, your CD-R media, cases,

and a lot of man hours.

With CD replication, you can get many more copies,

professional artwork, a barcode for inventory, and

cases included. Replication is obviously to

expensive for those looking to simply back up

pictures and data on a personal computer, although

the prices are just right for musicians looking

to make profit off of their CDs.

Differences Between Cd Dvd Media

(category: Cd-Duplication, Word count: 441)
Share this article on: Facebook, Twitter, Whatsapp

Even though both CD and DVD disks have the same

media size and shape, the things they have in

common ends there. There are many different

things between the two, such as what they hold

and how much they hold.

Data pits and lasers

A disc has microscopic grooves that will move

along in a spiral around the disc. CDs and

DVDs both have these grooves, with laser breams

applied to scan these very grooves.

As you may know, digital information is represented

in ones and zeroes. Inside of these discs, very

tiny reflective bumps known as lands and non

reflective holes known as pits, which can be

found beside the grooves, reflect both the ones

and the zeroes of digital information.

By reducing the wave length of the laser to 625mm

or more infrared light, DVD technology has

managed to write in smaller pits when compared

to the standard technology of CD. This will

allow for a greater amount of data per track

on the DVD. The minimum length allowed for a

pit in a single layer DVD-R is .4 micron, which

is obviously more than the .0834 micron that a

CD offers.

The tracks of a DVD are narrower as well, which

allows for more tracks per disc, which also

translates into more capacity than a CD. The

avaerage single layer DVD holds 4.5 GB of data,

while a CD holds a mere 700 MB.


As stated above, a DVD has smaller pits and the

lasers need to focus on them. This is actually

achieved by using a thinner plastic substrate

than in a CD, which means that the laser needs

to pass through a thinner layer, with less

depth to reach the pits. It's this reduction in

thickness that's responsible for the discs

that were only 0.6mm thickness - which is half

that of a CD.

Data access speed

DVDs will access data at a much faster rate than

a CD can. The average 32X CD-ROM drive reads

data at 4MB a second, while a 1X DVD drive reads

at 1.38MB a second. This is even faster than

an 8X CD drive.

Universal data format

The recording formats of CDs and DVDs are quite

different, as DVDs use UDF, or the Universal

Data Format. This format allows data, video,

audio, or even a combination of all three to

be stored in a single file structure. The

advantage to this is any file can be accessed

by any drive, computer, or even consumer video.

CDs on the other hand aren't compatible with

this format.
