When submitting a master for audio CD, you can either mail us the “master audio CD” or upload “audio disc image”.
We accept audio disc image as DDP or BIN/CUE format.
A DDP file set is the recommended format for uploading the audio CD image. A DDP file set contains the audio and all other necessary information, it also can include CD-TEXT, ISRC codes, etc.
BIN/CUE format is used to store a disc image, which is composed of a cue sheet file (.cue) and one or more bin files. The cue file is a plain-text file, which stores the information of disc and tracks. The bin file is a binary file, which stores the raw sector-by-sector copies of the tracks in the disc.
While most disc imaging software supports the above format, you may choose to use Imgburn (a free version). Download ImgBurn
If you do not provide us “master audio CD” or “audio disc image” and provide MP3 files or WAV files, we can help prepare a master image for a fee of $75
