CD-Text testing complete on Half Moon Bay

One of the really important tasks of pre-production with music CDs is making sure the CD-Text feature reads correctly. That's the info displayed on the screen during playback - album name, song title, track number, etc. We reached that stage today with Half Moon Bay.

CDs are considered by many to be old-school tech, but I believe they're still a great way to distribute & play back music, especially albums. MP3s are cool & efficient, but with CDs you get album graphics, liner notes & a physical, tangible "presence" to recorded music that harkens back to vinyl records.

Those of us old enough to have bought records back in the day remember the thrill of opening a new album for the first time, pulling out the inner sleeve, reading the liner notes, looking at the pristine black vinyl & carefully placing it on the turntable.

Magic!
