Once you’ve recorded up your music, the next stage is to get it into a format you can distribute to your customers. There are many options for this, such as CD replication (Pressing up more then 1000 CDs), CD duplication (Pressing up less then 1000 CDs) or converting your music into a digital format such as MP3 download.
