CDMaker will begin to offer audio mastering to its music cd duplication service to new clients starting June 1, 2013.
— Starting June 1, 2013, CDMaker, an optical media duplication and manufacturing facility, will offer full service audio mastering to its list of services for music CD duplication.
Audio mastering is the process of preparing and transferring recorded audio from one source containing the final mix to a final source configured for optimal audio results on the desired playback device or system.
"Its way more than just running a sound track through a pre-set filter, like many duplication and replication services offer for $99 a track," said CDMaker owner and manager, Carolyn Holzman.
"What we're doing is a continuation of actually beefing up industry standards. Other CD duplication services are lowing the paper weight and quality and replacing plastic with the kind of plastic found in plastic liter bottles and they're doing the same thing with mastering. They run a track through a preset filter say for a rock music sound and calling that mastering. We will be having an actual engineer actually sitting there and listening and making adjustments as needed."
CDMaker is partnering with an actual mastering studio to provide hands on track by track mastering for a reasonable price and within a couple of days depending on how much is in the queue. The current plan is that mastering an album will run $700, an EP will run $500 and a 2 or 3 song pack will cost $250.
During the month of May 2013, in conjunction with the 25 year anniversary of CDMaker, complimentary mastering was offered on all music cd orders. The orders in mastering now will be released most likely in June or later this summer.
