So what’s the diff between Real-Time and High-Speed cassette duplication?

 

When entering your cassette duplication order, the first question you face is whether you want to duplicate real-time or high-speed. So what’s the difference? With real-time cassettes we load the tape according to your longest side length. From there we duplicate directly from your audio files, allowing us to use a high quality 24-bit source, even higher resolution than CD. Our frequency range is 20Hz to 20kHz, meaning that we can maintain extreme highs and lows while still dubbing at a loud volume and with low tape hiss. Each cassette is manually quality controlled to ensure the A-side sounds correct.


Our Tapematic 2000 loads tape into cassette shells for real-time duplication.

High-speed is the economical choice. The cassette is loaded into a digital bin and then duplicated continuously at high speed onto bulk 8,200 foot pancakes. Each tape is separated by a cue tone, which the Tapematic loaders use to locate, cut and load the tape into the cassette shell. Each cassette is consistent in quality with a frequency range of 20Hz to 16kHz. By being able to duplicate higher quantities at a faster rate we are able to offer a lower price per cassette compared to real-time, and just like real-time we are able to duplicate the cassettes at a loud volume with low tape noise.

Summer daze

If you’re back in school this September you may find yourself sitting in class reflecting on the summer that just ended. Concerts, parties, unbearably hot weather, and everything in between. Looking back at the past few months at Duplication.ca, I gotta say, this was a hell of a summer.

The big news is that we’ve massively expanded our CD and printing department. After 30 years of business we’ve acquired a new production space in Scarborough, Ontario, allowing us to increase our CD replication and duplication production. And it’s not just the sheer volume of jobs that’s improved, but the overall quality of the products and printing as well. We’ve got one of the best silkscreen technicians in the world meticulously working on your CD orders to make sure the colours are perfect. Our new offset printer is out of this world, allowing us to create new packaging solutions to your album releases at the highest quality.

Of course, we’re not limited to just CD-related production. We’re printing books, magazines, catalogues, and even large vinyl banners. Check out this behemoth:

One thing we’re particularly psyched about is our new cardboard sleeves. We love ’em because they’re high quality at a very affordable cost. These sleeves are thicker and sturdier than ever before, with higher resolution print than what we previously offered. And depending on how big you want to go, we have 2-panel, 4-panel, and 6-panel options.

So, yeah, a pretty good summer. We want to share our excitement so we’re throwing a little sale. We’re offering free standard shipping to North America on every CD replication order with 2-panel cardboard sleeve packaging! This offer expires September 14th, so you better hurry.
