Good Reasons to Publish Your Music

April 4th, 2019

There is a great deal of information and research published about the health benefits of listening to and also of performing music.

Here at duplication centre we love to work with customers who are publishing as a solo artist or group/band and creating a hard copy CD,DVD or Blu-Ray to share with family, friends and fans.

Commit your work to CD for others to hear or just for your own enjoyment and pleasure.

Don’t forget to copyright your original music to ensure you receive any credits for use of your work.

You can find out about doing this on the PRS For Music website.

www.prsformusic.com

It’s satisfying and raises self esteem….and may even raise some cash!!

Heralding the BluRay

March 7th, 2019

People often forget that  a Blu-Ray can be played on a PS3, PS4 and XBox so you do not need to own a Blu-Ray player in order to buy and play Blu-Ray Discs.

Many of your customers may not even realise that they have the ability to play a Blu-Ray via one of these consoles!

Most families nowdays have one of these in the home.

We are promoting the Blu-Ray and have reduced our prices for you!!

What extra benefits do you get with a Blu-Ray over and above a standard DVD?

Greater Storage Capacity: Singe Layer BluRay can store approximately 25Gb data,this equals 2 hours of high defintiion information or 13hours of standard definition information.

Better Laser Technology: Blu-Ray players use a Blue Laser to read the stored information;the waves lengths are shorter and smaller in diameter than those of a DVD player, this allows for a closer and more precise reading of information on the discs.

Better Disc Construction:The Blu-Ray has a protective layer designed to resist scratching and in addition a harder coating than the DVD that makes it more scratch resistant.

Better Image Resolution:The Blu-Ray was designed for the high definition 1080 display. BluRay currently has the best image resolution on the market and looks amazing on HD TV, they are one of the few sources that display in Full HD.

Lastly and very importantly Blu-Ray can handle 4K (Ultra HD)….we dont need a new type of disc for our new Tv’s…you can have it all with the Blu-Ray.

We love it when our customers share a picture or video of their order with us !

Meet the Management Team

January 21st, 2019

Our Managing Director here at Duplication Centre was a Professional Musician majoring in the Hammond B3 Organ .

He is one of the only Hammond players in the UK to use the foot pedals and enjoys an eclectic range of music but his main love is Jazz and Jazz funk.

He has an amazing musical ability and an incredible ear for music and plays most instruments he picks up!

Martin owned a  recording Studio  and it was from this studio that Duplication Centre grew. It was here that he met Mark Smith our Technical Director.

 

 

Mark is a graduate in Computing and Design, a qualified sound engineer, well versed in Pro Tools and has an amazing natural ability to understand everything technical!!

Apart from all his other duties at Duplication Centre, Mark has an amazing affinity with the machines and is our Mr Fix it!!

She is a graduate with a Bachelor of Education and former teacher and brings the skills developed in that career to us here.

All of these gifts and talents combine to make a great team.

If you call us or email you will most likely speak to one of these people so can be sure that you are getting the best possible advice and guidance for your project.

Will my song titles show when I play my CD in a computer?

January 14th, 2019

Computers use an online database to display CD information, the most common one is known as Gracenote, a more detailed article on Gracenote can be found here Gracenote CD Database and CD-TEXT.

Tunes and Windows Media Player DO NOT read and CD-Text embedded on the actual CD, at all! This is common for all computer CD player software.

When the CD information is displayed on a computer, the info is coming from an online database. The database is usually Gracenote (the more common) or AllMusic.

The Gracenote database serves CD information to: iTunes, WinAmp, Quintessential Media Player, and Finder (Mac OS). The AllMusic database serves CD information to: Windows Media Player, Rhapsody, and Real Music Player.

Registration on these databases must be completed by you, the client, rather than us as no extra information is added to the CD for them to work.

You can find further information on how to submit your CD on the below links.
