CD Production from the UK’s largest CD duplication company
CD Production UK
At Alpha Duplication, we utilise two types of CD Production process. These two processes are CD duplication and CD replication and they are often either mixed up or are presumed to be the same thing. In actual fact, each one is a very different process from the other and here is a quick summary of the main differences.
Process 1: CD Duplication
This process of CD Production involves the procurement of blank CD-Rs (CD Recordables). The CDRs that we buy in, have a silver printing surface which can receive a direct screen or lithographic print and a silver recording surface. Read More

About our CD Pressing Service
What is CD Pressing?
CD Pressing is the expression that you may occasionally hear used to describe the process of transferring audio, video or data files contained on a CD or DVD “Master” disc to a metal stamper. The stamper is then used in the “pressing” or replication of many copies of the master disc.
If you require a large run of several thousand CDs or more and your deadline for delivery is not too tight or at least flexible, we would then highly recommend CD pressing as a manufacturing method for your discs as a significant cost saving can be made over a large run of duplicated CDs. Read More
Alpha Duplication CD Mastering Service for the UK
The right CD Mastering Service is essential. When you’ve worked for months or years on your music project and have spent countless hours in the studio with your engineer on the CD mastering process, you need to be sure that final master is perfect before producing multiple copies for retail.
What is a CD Mastering service?
Whether your project is a major label release or an independent release it needs to be mastered to prepare it for radio play and retail sale. In the recording studio you will most probably have recorded each song independently, you may even have recorded them at different studios or maybe during a live set. The end result is a collection of tracks that all peak at differing levels. Your CD mastering service engineer will ensure all your tracks have a consistent sound using EQ, gain and compression. During the mastering process your engineer will also be able to increase the volume of your album, get rid of noises between tracks and employ many other tricks of the trade so that it sounds fantastic on any sound system.

Welcome to the UK’s premier CD Manufacturing Service
CD Manufacturing UK
At Alpha Duplication, we use two methods of CD manufacturing. CD duplication and CD replication. These two terms are very often mixed up or assumed to be the same process. In fact they describe very different processes which are explained here.
Method 1: CD Duplication
This method of CD manufacturing involves buying in blank CD-Rs (CD Recordables). The CDRs that we source are silver/silver CDRs which means that both the recording and printing side of the disc are silver, the printing side is easily identified by looking at the printed codes in the centre of the disc. The discs are loaded onto spindles which are, in turn, loaded into our screen printing facility or litho printing facility for the printed image to be applied. Read More
