Administration and manufacturing
In these days, working as efficient as possible is very important. This is why we offer various services to third parties, which can be implemented as external additions to the client’s existing setup. Most services are modular and can be added individually to obtain the ideal workflow.
Administration and label deals
daredo media offers professional administration services to third party labels. Starting with manufacturing via product management, collecting neighboring rights and processing third party (sub-license) deals up to creating the royalty-statements – everything can be securely outsourced to our administration team. Together with our administration partners, we create an individual setup which allows the label-owner to fully concentrate on the creative work process.
Some of the labels we administrate:
Blu-Ray, DVD, CD and vinyl manufacturing
Due to our long-time experience in working with pressing plants all over the world, we are the perfect contact if you want to manufacture your own physical products. As long as we know what you are looking for, we will find the right pressing plant for your individual requests, even for colored CDs, shaped vinyl or special packaging. We can handle all stages of manufacturing for you.
We also can provide you with professional advise regarding all questions you may have about copyrights, mechanicals, neighboring rights, publishing rights and other main features (e.g. FSK), which are important to know for manufacturing physical products.
Manufacturing CDs in small quantities
As a rule, manufacturing CDs at pressing plants only makes sense financially if you have at least 500 to 1.000 CDs pressed. Due to the declining physical market, many albums are nowadays released in digital form only. As a solution to this problem, we offer you the new special service of manufacturing CDs in small quantities (starting from 100 copies) that have a professional look, contain high-quality artwork, and – if desired – are shrink-wrapped (sealed in foil). Furthermore, we can assist you with any potential copyright or mechanical questions.
CD, vinyl and mp3 mastering
It is no secret that proper mastering is highly important for any sound recording. Professional mastering is not only essential to enhance the sound experience for the listener – it is also very important to increase sales on business. Mastering is a science and to achieve the best results, it is substantial to work with specialists. It’s not just that different formats need certain editing, also different genres require suitable treatment in order to achieve the right individual mastering for a specific track.
daredo is working with mastering studios in England, Germany, France and The Netherlands and carefully selects the best mastering studio for each client assignment.
