Submit stereo interleaved (no LR-split) file. When ordering the DDP master, add the CD track number to each file name.

When submitting the label copy in DDP master production plans, you can use Label Copy Sheet. Your own sheet is also OK, but handwriting is not accepted. Please be careful of mistyping.


- Delivery Formats -

The same formats as the above can be delivered. If you need some adjustment in the mastered track such as for online distribution, you can order from Another Version.

In DDP master production plans, DDP image files are delivered online as the CD press master. However, individual tracks are not delivered because the sound data is formed for the master production. If necessary, you can order from Individual Track.

'sls0' is added to the file name of the mastered track; 'add0' is added to the file name of Another Version/Separate Track. At the 1st retake this number changes into '1', and the number increases when retaking.
