  • Pressing up cds

    This may seem like a stupid question, but i've never touched CDs in the context of pressing them up. I know loads of tips etc for vinyl, but not CD. So does anyone know any important points on mastering for CD - is it a good idea to try and compensate with extra warmth for example? Do many of you sit in on a mastering session for CD, or do you just send off your master recording? Are their any special things to consider when sending a master CD, do you even master onto CD, preferring DAT instead etc... There's a term called 'Red Book' which is a universal standard that all master formats need to comply to. Is there anything more to that other than having correct time codes for DAT, or making sure your master CD works on all machines?

    Basically, any considerations unique to the CD format.

    Thanks in advance for any pointers!
