Band CD Duplication Requirements

One of the largest markets within our business is Band CD Duplication. At some stage in their career all bands will have requirements for CD duplication or replication services. This could be in the form of simple demos or a full self financed CD album release.

In the very early stages of a bands development the demo CD is an invaluable tool for obtaining gigs and interest from management companies or promoters. These demos do not need to be produced to retail standard and very often a very simple silver disc with black text print inserted into a plastic sleeve is the cheap solution. These budget demos can be handed out at gigs or posted to prospective venues, promoters and managers.

Most early band recordings will just be of rehearsals or small live gigs but sometimes the raw talent of a band can be spotted even at this stage. Sometimes the sheer talent of a band can shine through even if the demos are a little lo-fi in quality. A bands very first recording is always the starting block and from therein all focus should be on improving the sound of the band during future recordings.

The natural progression with bands is once the gig money starts coming in. With a little cash the door of opportunity widens. A couple of days in an average recording studio with a couple of hundred pounds budget may then yield a lot higher quality demo or even a CD that is good enough quality for a small self financed run of EP’s. Once these recordings are made the next question is whether a band should opt for a short run CD duplication order or proceed to a full pressing using the replication process.
