Is this pro enough?greenspun.com : LUSENET : 3D Audio's Music Business Forum (SSS Temp) : One Thread
Okay, here's the scoop. I have a friend who just got promoted to a good position at a publishing company. 5 times a year these folks put out a compilation CD of new material. Basically it's a narrator introducing the new stuff followed by the music. Occasional fadeins/outs. Nothing really complicated. I'm getting ready to upgrade my system and have about $5000 to spend. I just want to make sure that what I'll be purchasing can do much more than they need (gotta stay ahead of the curve!). Here's what I have (in brief)

I,m jusr wondering if you are going to master for the production , Protools is only a 16 bit format...which leads to my question. I know of a lot of local studios who "master" in Protools. Lynn, Is this advisable?? Don't you really want to have higher reolution than 16 bits to do fades, EQ,...etc.????

JUST FYI - DO NOT DUPLICATE YOUR CD'S AT HEALY DISC IN CANADA!!!!!!!!!
A friend of mine had 500 tapes and 500 CD's made there, and they burnt him big time! First, they sent him 500 EMPTY jewel cases! when he called them to ask them about it, they told him to send them back. When he did they accused him of OPENING UP ALL OF THEM AND TAKING THE CD'S OUT!!!! After 2 months and a call from a lawyer, they admitted that it was a mix up in shipping and sent him another 500 CD's and said that the original 500 were completed, but were stuck in customs, and when they got out, they would send him those 500 for all of his trouble. WELL, he called the shipping company (Emery Shipping) and they said they had them in thier possesion all they needed to send the other 500 was a voice authorization from Healy Disc. He gave them the # and asked them to call and get authorization. They called back and said that Healy Disc absolutely would NOT give such authorization and ordered the 500 CD's back to thier plant. When my friend called Healy Disc back and told them what he had found out, they got EXTREMELY irate and said that just for checking up on them they were going to BURN all 500 CD's when they got them back to the pressing plant.
THIS IS NO JOKE!!!
Do not duplicate anything at HEALY DISC in Canada!
PASS THIS MESSAGE ON TO EVERYONE YOU KNOW!!! DON'T LET THIS HAPPEN TO ANY OF YOUR CLIENTS (or friends - in my case, both)
