An ISRC is the internationally recognised royalty code. A 10 digit code to identify your specific recording and country of origin on playback. It is important for ensuring royallties from radio play. We recommend all clients use ISRC.

The code will be embedded in both your Audio Reference CD and your DDP Image (CD Replication Master). Please note that it is not possible to embed an ISRC code into a WAV file. ISRC is embedded is your DDP Image and Red Book Audio Reference CD.
