Release Formats

Release Formats Descriptions

Depending on how you plan to release your project this will determine what masters you will need and, in some cases, how the mastering is done.

Streaming, Digital Distribution, & CD

These release formats all come in DDP filesets with a player application. The player exports various formats and can burn CD's if your computer has a disc burner. This gets you everything you need for standard release on streaming platforms through an aggregator, digital distribution through a variety of outlets, and/or masters for manufacture of compact disc.

The DDP image with an included DDP player application that runs on Mac or PC both is included. From this player, several formats can be exported including WAV files, MP3 files, and burn CD's.

Vinyl

Old-school analog physical product. Additional charges apply.

Apple Digital Masters

Special masters for the special iTunes store. Nick Landis Mastering is an approved mastering studio with Apple and can certify masters for this special program. Additional charges apply.

MP3

MP3 files sold/given directly to fans from something like a website or other non-aggregated source. MP3 files are exportable from the DDP master included with most mastering projects, but if you need ready-to-release files with all the metadata included click this option. Additional charges apply.

Radio

AM or FM radio broadcast.

Archive

Not planning on distribution or sale and just need a hard copy that will stand the test of time.
