Vinyl records are back in fashion!
CD-Burn.DDP.Master makes it extremely easy to prepare your music for vinyl distribution. Special markers define which tracks go on which side of the record. The predefined maximum length of the vinyl record is checked automatically.

Multi-CD Projects

Whether you’re working on a live recording, audio book or other long projects: a single CD is often not enough. With CD markers you can manage any number of CDs in one project and burn as a batch process or export as DDP images.
