DDP and How to Provide Us With Your Master

cd

Eyedea Worx creates many CD projects for bands and musicians who have a new release to share with their fans.

Before we can replicate a musical project, however, we need to have a master that we can accurately re-produce while ensuring that the track order and audio quality remains intact.

There are several ways to provide us with a master, but our preference is to receive a DDP (Disc Description Protocol) or a physical replication-ready CD.  A DDP  file is basically a digital version of a completed CD, with all of the relevant information already attached to the files, including:

  1. -Files labeled DDPID, DDPMS, and DDPPQ (or SUBCODES) that all describe and organize the disc
  2. -A file that contains the audio data for the disc
  3. -A file that contains the CD Text information for the disc

A DPP is typically provided by an audio engineer or a mastering house and is the simplest, easiest, and most accurate way for Eyedea Worx to receive your master. DDP facilitates direct upload for duplication or replication and is a flawless delivery method to ensure that your copies will be exactly in the order that you intended.

ddpp

If you don’t have a DDP or a physical CD master, we can accept .WAV files. We prefer to receive these files through Wetransfer, a free service that allows users to send larger files.

Once received, we must burn a physical copy of those individual .WAV files in order to create the master copy for replication or duplication.

In order for us to take individual .WAV files and create a CD that matches what you envision for the final product, however, we will need you to send us some instructions before we create the master copy:

  1. -In what order do the tracks need to be sequenced? Even if the .WAV files are numbered in the file name, having a track list will ensure that we can get the order correct.
  2. -Do you want any gaps between songs? Typically there is a 2 second pause between each track on a standard CD, but we can create the master with either a 1 second gap or no gaps if necessary.
  3. -Do you want the project’s information text embedded  on the CD? This means that the master and all copies created will have the artist name, album name, and all track titles embedded onto it so that it automatically displays the information when played in a car stereo or in a computer player like Itunes or Windows Media Player.

Creating a physical master from .WAV files does require some time on our end, so there is a $25 fee to create a master from .WAV files. Embedding the text information also requires additional time, so there is an additional $25 fee to create a text-embedded master. Once the physical master is created, we will send you a test disk (there will be a shipping charge if you’re not in Denver) so you can double-check that the master is exactly how you intended before we make any copies.

So while we can receive .WAV files to create a master for replication, it is overall quicker and easier to send us a physical master CD or DDP that you’ve already reviewed to make sure that it is exactly the final product you want to create!

Live Music Video and Live Music Streaming from Eyedea Worx

We here at Eyedea Worx love live music and are happy to work with so many talented musicians.

We sponsor as many music festivals and events as we can, and had a great time at last weekend’s Higher Ground Music Festival in Denver. Over two days we got to see many great live sets from bands around the country, and took TONS of video for you to enjoy! You can find the full playlist from the 2015 Higher Ground Music Festival below:

We took video for new bands we had never seen before and were happy to meet like Calliope Musicals and Me Like Bees but also local bands we’ve worked with in the past like High Five, Red Stinger, and King Cardinal.

Eyedea Worx is also a title sponsor for Mountain Size Presents, Live at Evergroove. A monthly live show from Evergroove Studio in Evergreen, CO, the broadcast streams LIVE as the action happens and has welcomed local Denver acts and national (and international) touring bands alike.

Last night, Evergroove welcomed Texas rock band Jack Kerowax for a live streaming show, and you re-watch the live stream at Youtube here:

Quick Turn CD Duplication With Eyedea Worx

Eyedea Worx and Notion Worx are here to help our clients to create their high quality custom projects in the easiest and most affordable way possible.

One of the more common requests we get from Colorado musicians and bands across the world is for a quick turnaround time for CD projects; often times a release party comes up quicker then expected and bands just need something to promote their new release. Typically, a CD order of 100 or more pieces takes 5-10 business days, depending on exactly what kind of CD package is requested.

However, there is one kind of CD or DVD package that can be produced in as little as 3 business days: a slimline jewel case.

The slimline jewel case

With a plastic body similar to a full-size jewel case but with half the weight and size, a silmline still showcases all of the artwork for a new release and makes a great package for a new release. The quick turnaround time is possible because the printing can be done as an insert instead of a completely new package, making it simple and quick to create the complete item without sacrificing any quality.

Slimline jewel cases can be printed with either a 2-panel insert (front and back) or 4-panel (front, back, with two pages of full color print in the middle), so the package can still be customized to fit the particular project’s needs. Full-color disc face printing in full color (600 DPI) and disc duplication or replication is included; shrink wrap is also included if desired.

Pricing for a quick turn around CD project

Give us a call today at Eyedea Worx if you need a quick turn CD duplication project completed for your upcoming CD release show!
