CD Manufacturing Services
Did you know… that these days musicians who want to popularize their songs and promote themselves are turning to CD manufacturers for assistance? Unsigned musicians and record labels looking to replicate or duplicate CDs are all contributing to the success of businesses offering CD manufacturing services, an field that has been widening relentlessly for decades. CD manufacturing services are currently the most practical and convenient way for artists trying to break out into the music industry to present labels with professional looking demos, thus displaying a sense of entrepreneurship otherwise not so readily shown toward music executives.
The art of CD manufacturing presently takes two forms, CD duplication, which TechWeb Network explains as the “creating CDs and CD-ROMs by writing blank CD-R discs in a CD-R drive on a personal computer or by using a CD duplicator,” and CD replication, described as “manufacturing CDs and CD-ROMs by stamping blank plastic discs from a metal die that contains the predefined pit pattern (binary pattern).” While companies such as Music Manufacturing Services offer both methods of mass production, they also provide their clients with marketing strategies in order to help them sell their music to potential consumer.
As experts at Music Manufacturing Services mention, “the first step in disc manufacturing is to cut a glass master, which is used to create the stamper that will press your discs. Normally, a glass master is cut at high speed, sometimes up to eight times the normal playback speed. Most CDs are produced this way – it’s an industry standard.” But they also note, however, that “for some audiophiles, the best possible CD sound comes from having a glass master cut at the exact playback speed of your disc,” referred to as “real-time,” which can also be customized and purchased through Music Manufacturing Services upon request and at no additional charge.
For artists looking to get their careers started in the ever so competitive realm of the music industry, seeking the help of companies offering CD manufacturing services may be the best place to start.
