Yep! Every project is archived on multiple hard-drives and is saved for at least 5 years.
DDP (digital description protocol) is a format used in CD manufacturing. Much like a master lacquer in vinyl pressing, the DDP file is the master file from which CDs are duplicated. The DDP file also encodes essential information like track titles, track order, ISRC codes, credits and copyright information.
If your release plan involves CD duplication it is a good idea to send a DDP file (rather than wav files) to the manufacturer. With some distributors it is possible to have CDs made using wav files, however details like gap length between songs can’t be controlled and will be left up to the distributor or manufacturer.
If your release plan doesn’t involve CD duplication a DDP file is unnecessary.
However some instrument recordings can be done in-house, for certain projects this can be accommodated. For most other situations (ex: band sessions) I will try my best to refer you to a nearby recording studio and engineer that I would personally trust to deliver great results (depending on your location this may or may not be possible).
