Digital Formatting
These days, to have a successful audio CD release it is imperative that your music is available on iTunes as well as any number of popular music download services. There are several things you will need to ensure your CD is formatted properly for these digital distribution services:


1) ISRC CODES – An ISRC CODE is a unique number assigned to each track on your disc used to identify that track for digital download sales. Other uses include tracking royalty payments for radio play, as well as anti-piracy safeguards in the digital arena.

NOTE - YOUR MUSIC CANNOT BE AVAILABLE ON ANY DIGITAL DOWNLOAD SERVICE UNLESS YOU HAVE AN ISRC CODE FOR EACH TRACK.


2) COMPUTER MEDIA PLAYER DISPLAY – Many music fans listen to music on their computer. You will want to make sure that your CD is submitted to the Gracenote database to ensure that the artist, title, song titles, and genre information displays properly when played in most computer music players.

NOTE: IF YOUR CD IS NOT SUBMITTED PROPERLY, NO INFORMATION ABOUT YOUR CD WILL DISPLAY WHEN PLAYED IN A COMPUTER.


3) CD TEXT – Although not specifically related to digital download or proper computer media display, you will also want your CD formatted properly for CD TEXT. CD TEXT is a standard that allows disc and track information to be embedded on your audio CD making this information available for display on CD players that are compatible to read CD Text


(Up to 20 tracks. $149.00 21-50 tracks, $199.00 51-99 tracks.)

Digital Formatting adds 2-3 workdays to turn time for most orders.
