Outputting your Digital Audio
Once you have worked with your digital audio, have edited and tweaked it to perfection, and mixed it up as much as you like, you must think about how to distribute your audio. If you are considering distributing your audio to the general public, you will want to learn how to encode your music onto compact discs. This series will look at the steps you would take to encode your music on CD for general distribution.
Step 1: CDs defined
Compact discs are removable storage units, capable of holding a finite amount of data. For the purpose of this series, we will be looking only at record-able compact discs and not re-writable compact discs.
Step 2: Buying Compact Discs
There are two types of compact discs you can buy -- data discs and audio discs. In practice, there is little difference in the two when used in a computer.
Step 3: Data CDs
Data CDs are capable of holding at a minimum 74 minutes of music, regardless of the file size. However, realize you can, with editing, include a number of songs on one CD.
Step 4: Audio CDs
Audio CDs are used in recording audio CDs on machines designed only to record audio CDs, such as those from Panasonic. The Panasonic recorder will not recognize a data CD and thus, will not allow you to record on it.
