Friday, October 30th, 2009

DVD and CD duplication is a process which is done by burning data on a blank CD or DVD. The duplicated CDs are high in quality and can be played in most electronic hardware devices.

The importance of CD duplication

Nowadays, music companies use this process to release their songs and videos. The maximum number of CDs that can be created with the help of this process is up to 500 and the minimum CDs should be more than 100. So, if you are only planning to order 2 or 3 copies then this process should be done at home. The process of duplication is fast and it is done without compromising on the quality of the CD/DVD.

The process involved in CD duplication

There are two ways to duplicate a CD or DVD. By pressing the music on the discs or digitally transferring the music on the CD or DVD, this is done by using state of the art industrial duplicators.

The artwork

The artwork on the CD or DVD in this process is generally done by inkjet printers. Otherwise, the printing on the CD is usually done at the time of pressing.

Thus, this process is much faster and cheaper than the process of replication.

Piracy robs the movie and music industries of their creativity and ingenuity

Wednesday, October 21st, 2009

The music and movie industries face a lot of problems due to piracy. The effect of piracy is hurting these industries right where it hurts them the most – their pockets. These industries are losing lots of money on a regular basis as a result of piracy and its effects. Anti piracy laws have to an extent curbed the level of piracy, but piracy by and large is prevalent even today.

The deadly effects of piracy on different industries
The music, movie, software and gaming industry loses billions of pounds every year due to piracy encroaching into their industry. People purchase pirated CD’s and DVD’s because they are available at a very cheap price. They may be cheap, but they do not have the quality of original CDs or DVDs. As a result, the artists who create the CDs or DVDs do not get the benefits they deserve. Even those directors and writers who come up with blockbuster movies do not reap the benefits after they put all their efforts into them.

Piracy stifles the creativity of artists

Piracy does not only take a toll on the profits but also affects the level of ingenuity and creativity of the artists. This as a result stifles the creativity of the industry. Artists will not create original work if they know they will not benefit from them.

CD mastering will improve the quality of the audio on the CD

Sunday, October 18th, 2009

Many people try to make their songs sound better by recording sections of the song separately and then using mixing equipment. People also record different songs for their album at different locations. This style of recording each song at a time in a recording studio results in different songs having different EQs. Hence, each song may have variations and peaks at different levels.

CD mastering can solve this problem and it helps you by unifying the sound of the songs across the CD. A mastering engineer will create consistent sound tracks by eliminating the unnecessary noise in the background. And, CD mastering enhances the overall quality of the songs by altering the space between the audio tracks.

The importance of CD mastering

The recording of songs can be done very easily and anyone can do it with some knowledge. CD mastering on the other hand needs a professional touch because mastering is a very important step which calls for editing and polishing of the audio track.

The three major steps of mastering a CD

• Editing – This step eliminates the unnecessary noise and errors.
• Sweetening – This will help to bring the overall sound of the CD to the same level.
• Quality checking – This is the last step before releasing the audio CD to the market and it eliminates all the errors which have not been rectified in the earlier steps.

Thus, CD mastering will improve the quality of the sound and even a casual listener will make out the difference after mastering. So the CD mastering stage is the final and most creative step when creating a CD.
