Gracenote CD Database & CD Text: August 27th 2020

Thursday, August 27th, 2020

Gracenote CD Database and CD-TEXT

We live in an age where all things exist on the cloud, but this is only partly true for the text information’s we see when playing CD-Audio disc.

There are in fact two ways to add track text info to a disc:

In the beginning, not long after CDs were released in the 80s, an update was made so small amounts of text could be added to a CD. This text lives in sub channels of the disc so it won’t effect playback, but a CD-TEXT enabled player can read and display the information. Nowadays these players are less common, but still used in most car stereos unless you’re driving one of a few higher end vehicles.

A common assumption is that most computers read CD text, however this is not the case; iTunes, Windows Media Player etc. do not use CD-Text at all. They use a more modern system, the GraceNote – Compact Disc Data Base (CDDB). With this system none of the text used is actually stored on the disc, but all saved on the internet.

When you insert a CD and view through iTunes for example, the computer identifies the disc and then looks it up on the web. If it cannot find a match it will not display the text information, or may display a close match (from another artist!). So even if you have a CD which has CD text, but is not registered with the CDDB, its unlikely the text will show up on a computer at all.

We have customers who have experienced this problem and fortunately its very easy to correct.

We recommend using iTunes as it’s one of the easiest ways to upload your CD information.

The below link will show you how to do this in just a few minutes:

Once submitted it can take a couple of days to update but that’s all you need to do.

Make More Money From Your Music: July 17th 2020

Friday, July 17th, 2020

In the covid world, with less opportunities for live music income, artists are looking for  new opportunities to earn money.

Here’s an idea that will make you money.

Go back to all of your albums and release special versions only available on cd ….. the key here is not to upload this to

Spotify. You then give your fans a reason to buy your album!

Ideas to make it exclusive include:

For the Audio:

1.New tracks not on the original album

2.Remixes previously unreleased

3.Outtakes

4.Live versions

5.Instrumental versions

6. Lockdown Sessions

  • You can also make the album art unique and desirable in itself.
  • Many albums of course have the lyrics but what about explaining to your fans the background to how / why it was written
  • Anything that makes it interesting…. that you can’t get on Spotify for free!
  • Hope this helps to make you money let us know your success stories .

To help you even more add FREE4 in the special code box as you check out and we will give you 4 extra units free of charge.

You can check out our prices on the instant price calculator here:

Without Venues We’re Nothing: June 12th 2020

Friday, June 12th, 2020

I was struck by the title of  a CD that we duplicated for a customer this week:

“Without Venues We’re Nothing”…  although we are living in a digital age of downloads and streaming nothing will ever beat a live musical performance whether it be a local gig or West End Musical.

We all look forward to happier times when we will all be able to enjoy these again.singer clapping on stage , audience clapping happy muic gig

Ordering Online: May 29th 2020

In the duplication process we have to use a hard copy disc master to work from, and in the past our customers have largley sent these to us by post…..and many still do!

We have however found it particularly helpful during the lockdown period that we are able to accept customers masters digitally and create a hard copy master to work from here. With queues at the Post Offices because of social distancing and less staff working it has been a really helpful.

We can create masters from your files if you have an electronic image in ISO, JMG, NRG, DDP or BIN /CUE or you can send us audio or video files which need authoring.

If you need any more information about this the FAQ’s on the website can help you or you can call us on 01702-530 354 and ask any questions.
