A master disc should be exactly how you’d like the copies to be.

CDs AUDIO CDs
We recommend you use a professional mastering house to
master your music and create a master CD or DDP for
production.
Use high res audio files.
CD audio is encoded at 16bit, 44.1 KHz. It’s best to make your master CD from files that are at least
16 bit, 44.1 KHz. We don’t recommend making a master CD from MP3s.
Burn as audio.
DO NOT burn a data disc. Data discs can not be read as audio in a standard CD player.
Use verification.
Verification will compare the burned disc to the original audio files and check for errors. Use a disc
burning program that does verification.
Listen to the burned disc.
As a final check, listen to the burned CD in a few CD players and make sure it works and sounds how
you want it to.
If you’re supplying DDP files send us a download link or a USB
drive.
DO NOT burn the DDP files as data on a CD or DVD disc.

To make a DVD that will play in a DVD player you’ll need to get
your movie file encoded to the DVD video format. We
recommend you use a professional production company to
produce the master DVD for you.
