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.

Musicians And Cd Duplication

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.

Essentials Of Cdr

The simple rule of thumb is that whatever you have

stored as a file on any other storage medium can

also be stored as a file on a CD-ROM. To the

recorder, a file is a file, and an ISO doesn't

care whether or not the file contains pictures, text,

or even audio sound.

There are a few special cases, as to where you

would want to record a file to a CD in a special

type of format. The most obvious here is CD-DA

audio. If you wanted to record an audio file to

a CD so that you could play it back on your home

stereo, you would need to write a CD-DA (or Digital

Audio) disk.

When you copy data to a CD, you need to ensure that

your data doesn't exceed the capacity of the CD

that you will be recording to. Due to the audio

requirements of CDs, the amount of information a

CD can hold is measured in minutes/seconds/sectors.

Each second can contain 75 sectors, each of which

are capable of holding 2,048 bytes of Mode 1 user


By using the CD Size command in the edit menu, you

can set the capacity of the set you wish to

produce, which will help you to prevent exceeding

it. The status bar will show you how much space

you have used, how much remains free, and the

percentage of each one.

Even though this may sound a bit confusing at

first, keep in mind that it may take some time if

you are new to computers. Even though copying a

CD is quite easy, knowing the limits and how things

work is a bit more complex. Give it some time,

and you'll be copying files to CD like the pros

do it.

Disc Quality

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.

on Froogle, such as a 50 pack spindle of blank CD-R

disks for less than $12.

Those interested in CD duplication at home, will find

that many of the newer computers come packages with

a CD burner included at prices under $500. If you

already own a computer and want to add an internal

CD burner, several retailers have brands for under

$50. You can also purchase an external CD burner

for all your needs for under $100.

Making cheap duplications of CDs even more affordable

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.

Cd Mastering Engineers

If a recording artist or inspiring musician has

any hopes of having their songs played on the

radio, they'll need to have their rough mix

mastered very well. The best way to do this, is

to hire a CD mastering engineer.

Professional mastering engineers can make a

decent audio mix sound great and a good mix

sound completely amazing. There are many different

things that CD mastering engineers can do. They

will work with the artist to decide what order

the songs appear on the CD, and also equalize

the volume of the different instruments in each

song and across the entire CD.

They can also help to add more definition and

clarity to the instruments in a song. Then,

they will adjust the introductions and ends of

the songs, choosing the length of time between

the songs and adding crossfades or other nice

effects if they need to.

The order in which the songs on a CD appear

can greatly affect the way the CD progresses

when it's played. If similar sounding songs

are placed side by side on a CD, it can lead

listeners into thinking the artist has a very

limited range. It's ultimately up to the

CD mastering engineer to work with the recording

artist and choose the order of songs on the CD.

It's very important that the instruments in a

song and the songs on the CD be at an appropriate

volume level. Within a song, the different

elements must be mixed appropriately in order

for the song to sound like it should.

The CD engineer can also give clarity and

definition to the different instruments in a

song. The engineer will also have the task of

assuring that the volume levels across all

of the songs are the same, in order to help

the CD sound more cohesive while still leaving

room for dynamics.

The CD mastering engineer will also determine

how much time there should be between the songs

on the CD. They will also fade and crossfasde

the intros and endings of the songs to make

them have a better flow.

For an interesting career, CD mastering engineers

is a great choice. They make excellent money,

get to work with top artists, and enjoy what

they do. If you like music, this career may be

what you've always wanted. For those who are

already in the profession - it's a job unlike

any other out there in the world.

What You Should Know

(category: Cd-Duplication, Word count: 417)
Share this article on: Facebook, Twitter, Whatsapp

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.

Tips For Cd Duplication Side Business

(category: Cd-Duplication, Word count: 446)
Share this article on: Facebook, Twitter, Whatsapp

The process of CD duplication has arrived in a very

big way. Teenagers these days are using their CD

burners to rip MP3s from their favorite artists and

bands. Companies choose to use CD duplication to

make backups of their software and important


Federal agencies on the other hand, are scrambling

to define and interpret intellectual piracy and

copyright laws as they relate to CD duplication and

the industry of music as a whole. The movie industry

is also seeking how they can profit from using CD

duplication. With so much attention being focused

on CD duplication, now is the ideal time to turn

your home CD duplication hardware into a very

profitable side business.

Believe it or not, you may already have everything

you need to get your CD duplication process going

in the right direction. All you need to get your

business started is a computer, CD burner, CD

duplication software, and a few blank CD-R disks.

Contrary to what you may think, its that easy to

get going.

If you don't have a computer or a CD burner, you

really shouldn't worry, as purchasing a CD duplication

device is actually very affordable. The cost of

stand alone CD duplication software has reduced

quite a bit over the years.

Almost all home computers come with internal CD

duplication hardware (CD burners) and some sort

of duplication software as well. CD duplication

media, such as blank CD-R and CD-RW are very

low in price and can be purchased at almost all

retail stores.

The market for your CD duplication service or

company is going to local bands and musicians as

well as small businesses. Local up and coming

bands are often too busy perfecting their sound

to deal with the tedious and time consuming task

of duplicating CDs for their gigs. They also lack

the money to order CDs from the big time CD

duplication companies as well.

The smaller businesses are pretty much the same, as

they are almost always unable to financially

justify having a technical or computer staff to

handle the backup and data storage aspects of their

company. Many times, they will end up forgoing

needed data backups simply because they forget all

about it.

You can however, solve these common gaps, provide

needed service, and earn some nice side money by

starting your own duplication service that caters

to these types of clients. By offering a reasonable

price, fast rate of delivery, and a quality product,

you'll get many repeat customers and a side

business that will keep busy for as long as you

want it.
