Vinyl Premaster

For the most part, a master created for CD or Download should work well on vinyl, but I can ensure that potential issues are flagged up and addressed

 

Areas that can cause problems during the cutting of vinyl are:

 

  • Excessive high or low frequency information.
  • Hard panned bass elements.
  • Song sequencing.
  • Running time.
  •  

    Vinyl pre-masters are typically delivered to the pressing plant at a higher resolution than CD (eg. 24bit 96kHz)

     

    A Vinyl pre-master file-set can be created at an additional rate of €12 per project.
    If you’re sending production masters created here, you can request a flat cut from the pressing plant.

    WAV and DDP files are included in the basic rate. Either can be submitted to a pressing or replication facility.
     
    DDP is a file format used in the manufacture of CD which includes the audio for the entire master. Track spacing and metadata are encoded into the file.
     
    A link to a DDP player software (Hofa) will be included with your completed pre-master.
