FILE MANAGEMENT
We will keep your files plus a back up during production.
Please bring in a hard drive or USB stick for file transfer.
Depending on the project your files may be up to 10 Gb or more, so please ensure there is enough space on your drive.
The drive should be formatted to a MAC compatible format. Windows formats (FAT32, exFAT) should work, too.
Please make sure that the read/write permission allow access for non administrators.

You may not want all files, which is fine. We will keep a copy on a hard drive after the finished production, but can not give a guarantee that these files will be accessible forever (if the drive should fail, they’re gone).

MASTERING
If you are mastering your project at Pughouse, we will create
– an Audio Master CD
– an Audio CD listening copy
– A DDP* Image file
*DDP stands for Disc Description Protocol. This is a data file of the entire CD and is commonly used when larger quantities of CD’s will be produced (replicated).
A DDP file is an error free copy of the CD Master and can be sent via FTP server or delivered on a USB stick, hard drive or DVD Rom.
Smaller runs of CD manufacturing (generally less than 500 units) are commonly done by copying (duplicating) a Master CD.
As CD’s contain errors, which are compensated for by software in the player, this is a less favourable method.

Have a chat to the CD production facility of your choice. Most of our clients have had their CDs manufactured by either  http://implant.com.au or http://www.replicat.com.au

You should consider obtaining ISRC codes for your project.
This does not cost any money and is highly advised.

CREDITS
We’d appreciate if you could credit the studio on the CD cover (and where else seems appropriate).
It’d be fantastic if there would be a space for our logo, too.
