Do mastering engineers deal with compiling the data content to the audio.
Other than an orange book multi-session cd-r is it possible to create blue book DDP files / PMCD, or is the yellow book session added at the replicators?
thanks for your help guys
Rarely is the data portion added at the replicator. Sometimes I will master a few open session CDs and the client will add the data portion and close the session. He then sends that master to the replicator as blue-book ready. But I prefer to add his data myself and close the CD so I can QC the disc and error check it. Unfortunately, "QC" in the case of blue book often is not that conclusive on our part. We assume that the client's data was tested thoroughly by him and we just see if it runs on the PC and/or Mac.
I don't know how to do a blue book DDP, it's all been CDR. And lately, haven't seen many blue book titles myself, I think everyone is putting their energy into DVDs.
