is a host-based premastering application that opens AIFF, WAV, BWF and SD2 stereo files. It edits, sequences and provides essential PQ support while costing one third less than our more full featured product, soundBlade. Yet, it shares the same engine that all our products use, for the best fidelity bar none.
The program features Sonic Studio\'s familiar and accessible NGC user interface, allowing any Mac running OS X 10.4 to open, play back, edit and adjust gain of audio files. In addition, PreMaster CD joins soundBlade as the only Mac OS application to save completely compliant DDP image file sets back to disk.
Of course, PreMaster CD also creates \'CD refs\' in the background, so your system is freed up to do other work. These CD-Digital Audio-formatted discs are playable by your clients on any audio CD transport worldwide.
PreMaster CD; OS X native for stable, secure operation. We invented desktop premastering on Mac OS way back in 1990. So, trust our knowledge gained from thousands of high end customers who rely on Sonic Studio gear for non-stop, reliable replication workflow.
