IRSC & Gracenotes Information

IRSC

Studio-D recommends that you add ISRC codes to your CD production master. ISRC helps log any radio play royalties and will ensure that you receive accurate royalty payments.

To register for ISRC visit www.ppluk.com. PPL will then supply you with an owner code and then you create codes for each track on your album.

Once you have your ISRC codes, please forward them along with your .wav files as they can then be embedded into your master for manufacture.
