Borrowing some of the high end features that Sonic Studio is known for, PreMaster CD provides key functionality not found in many digital audio workstations. In addition, available options allow savvy engineers to customize the applicationâ€™s already strong collection of functions based on client need. This new release consolidates all the maintenance changes incorporated into the code base while adding the framework needed for the 3.0 release, an upcoming Universal Binary version.
PreMaster CD offers expert premastering chops, including completely adjustable Start, End and Index mark placement, ISR and UPC/EAN Codes, plus automatic and semiâ€“automatic PQ generation. Sonic Studioâ€™s exclusive Smart Fade Tool and background CD writing, along with easy drag and drop resequencing makes quick work of CD refs. The Master Section, with large, adjustable metering, a master fader with dim, and convenient management of redithering parameters, offers centralized command and control. The Manual DeClick II option and DDP File Open for both split and consolidated file sets adds another level custom functionality while the ability to export BWF or AIFF back to your favorite DAW rounds out the feature set.
Every engineer needs special tools to compete in their market. In a career spanning two decades, Rob Beaton has produced and recorded artists as diverse as guitar hero Buckethead and the top shelf Budapest Symphony Orchestra. Beaton finds PreMaster CD a perfect fit for his diverse clientele. â€œThe Sonic Studio name and reputation made this purchase a noâ€“brainer for me.â€� Considering the current business climate, he qualifies his statement with the following adviceâ€¦â€œItâ€™s hard to stay competitive technologically with the Aâ€“list mastering houses, and PreMaster CD is one of the ways that I can. To be able to tell my clients Iâ€™m using Sonic Studio to make my CDs and DDPs is very important.â€� His customers also notice an improvement to his deliverables. â€œIâ€™ve gotten a number of comments from my clients, especially the ones I have a long term relationship with. They do hear the difference! The combination of PreMaster CDâ€¦along with high quality media, all adds up to a better sounding CD, and thatâ€™s what itâ€™s all about.â€�
