CD mastering

Good Imprint is greatly experienced in the exacting discipline of professional level audio CD mastering. It provided this service to the world music magazine Songlines for almost all of its cover sampler, bonus and annual Awards discs from shortly after the publication's inception in 1999 up to and including the October 2022 edition. It did the same for Gramophone from January 2000 until the October 2010 issue after which the magazine discontinued its CD, and for Classic FM Magazine from 2001 until the publication's demise following the April 2012 issue. In total Good Imprint has mastered more than 500 of these sampler CDs.

All aspects of Red Book production are catered for, including waveform editing, level matching, custom track point and indexing, coding for ISRC, copy inhibition and SCMS. Proof copies are provided either online via a customised, cross-platform DDP Player or physically on CD‑R and duplication masters as a DDP disc image uploaded direct to the replication plant.

Website design

Good Imprint is much occupied in the design and implementation of websites, large and small and has supplied this service to clients in the academic, arts, broadcasting, charity, consumer electronics, consumer magazine and industrial design worlds. Good Imprint specialises in 'clean', functionally elegant websites that are inviting to look at, informative and quick to display.

Options include database-driven pages using MySQL with PHP, an approach conferring many advantages, not least the option of including a sophisticated, in-house developed content management system that enables the client to use a standard web browser to add pages or to update, archive or delete existing material. Many of the sites shown in the sample Portfolio above are configured in this way.
