Adding Meta-Data  CD TEXT AND ISRC CODES

Meta-Data is loosely described as being 'data about data'. In the CD manufacturing world, this most commonly means CD Text and ISRC Code information that is included on the CD disc itself.


CD Text

CD Text can be used on audio CDs to store low bit-rate information on the disc in two ways: (1) To identify each individual song with its track number, track title and artist name, and (2) to identify the disc itself with the album name and the performer/band name.

Specific devices and applications that are able to read and display this information will recognize it, retrieve it, and display it to the user. To further clarify, the information is not contained within the individual audio tracks but it is stored on the disc itself.

Typically, CD Text is added at the conclusion of the Mastering stage, when the songs are being assembled and burned to CDR as the Master used for manufacturing purposes.

ISRC Codes

The ISRC (International Standard Recording Code) is the international identification system for sound recordings and music video recordings. Each ISRC is a unique and permanent identifier for a specific recording with can be permanently encoded into a product as a digital fingerprint.

The ISRC system is the key to royalty collection for the recordings in the digital information age, and provides a means to automatically identify a recording for royalty payment.

Register for your own ISRC Codes from AVLA.

If you're having CD's manufactured, the ISRC Codes would be added at the same time as your CD Text - at the conclusion of the Mastering stage when the songs are being assembled and burned to CDR for use as a production Master.
