CD-Burn & DDP program is a fantastically simple tool that can play more than a minor role in your studio. A great, relatively cheap program that just works.

appstoreVery good at what it does 5 Sterne

… the workflow and features are great for the money, much better value than other DDP authoring apps out there for mac. After using another app to create DDPs that constantly failed the CD plant’s pre-flight tests, I gave up and bought this instead. Support is very good too – fast to reply and know their stuff – and were happy to hear my feature wishes. In all, very pleased with the purchase. Cheers.

… I want to sincerely thank you for an excellent software!

CD-Burn & DDP works like a dream. It is very obvious that you are very good and very professional at your work. The program is so easy to use that if there is something you don’t understand it is definitely not the programs fault. DDP folder with md5 and all plus the option to do a zip folder at the same time tells that you have thought everything that the users save time and that they have a reliable DDP image for replicate. Price for this great tool is nothing. So, thank you!
