With our Sonoris DDP Player OEM software (an $80 value we offer to you for free)
TSM can now provide an easy way to audition the reference files we send you. With the DDP Player you can easily hear the starts, spacings and transitions between tracks as we have set them, as well as check all entered subcodes (such as UPC, CD Text and ISRC) for correctness, directly on your Mac or PC.
DDP Player also can give you the ability to reliably burn CD-R master discs to Red Book specs (including all the indexes and subcodes we have laid out for you), at your own location directly from the files we send you online. This can save you both the time and the cost of us shipping physical masters to you.
Download the DDP Player installer for your platform here:

When installing enter the activation keycode by copying and pasting it from the email we will send you when you place your order.
After the DDP Player has been installed load the files we have sent you.
If we have you provided you with .cue + wav files -
make sure all of the files we have sent you are unzipped and in the same folder together
and then browse for the .cue file by choosing in the menu:
Import > Cue Sheet
If we have provided you with a DDP image browse for the DDPID or DDPMS files by choosing in the menu:
Import > DDP Image
To burn a CD-R master from this choose
Burn CD > Audio Disc
You can save each of the CD's tracks as individual wav, aiff or flac files by choosing:
File > Save Audio Files
Tips for burning your own masters:
Use good media - we prefer Taiyo Yuden / JVC silver-blue 52x compatible CD-R's -
using 8x or 16x burning speeds (with current drives) for best results.
It is also highly recommended that you listen through your burned master disc once in its entirety using a reliable tray loading (NOT slot or caddy loading) CD player to make sure it is correct prior to sending it to your replicator.
Make sure when handling your master disc that you do not scratch or touch the playing surface.
If possible perform an error check on your disc.
