TCM Mastering now supply DDP files free of charge with all Album and Singles Mastering orders.

A DDP file, or Disc Description Protocol file is now the industry standard format used by all professional pressing plants worldwide.

Nowadays you can deliver your final master to a pressing plant in two ways, on CD or as a DDP file.

CD’s are okay but no matter how good your CD burner is, or the quality of your media, there will always be inherent errors in the subcode data which is not ideal. These errors can cause problems when the pressed CD is played on different CD players.

DDP files are usually delivered electronically or on DVD data disc and the DDP file has a far superior error correction rate and this ensures that your master will be as error free as possible.

Let TCM Mastering take care of all your professional mastering needs and let us make sure that you have a trouble-free replication experience.

We can deliver your DDP file and data directly to you, or alternatively to your contact at the replication plant. It’s all part of our ongoing committment to excellent customer service.
