Airshow Mastering (Boulder, Colo.) has published a comprehensive guide on producing Super Audio CDs (SACDs), The Artist's and Producer's Guide to SACD. Intended to help artists and producers make optimal use of the high-resolution format, the guide is available for free at the Airshow Website, www.airshowmastering.com/sacd.html.

"We saw a need to help producers understand how making an SACD differs from making a CD," said David Glasser, Airshow's chief engineer. "Quality control, getting reference discs for approval, the manufacturing timeline and even test pressing are some of the important things that are different. Plus, there are entirely new dimensions of multichannel audio, text publishing and authoring. So, we combined the experience of our engineers with that of our SACD clients to produce a soup-to-nuts guide to creating SACDs."

Airshow has released 80 SACDs to date, including a surround reissue of Mike Oldfield's Tubular Bells, as well as mastering SACD releases for the Telarc, Delos and Groove Note labels. In 1999, Airshow was one of the first studios worldwide to install Sony's Sonoma DSD workstation, and has continued to beta test new DSD and SACD production gear. Airshow plans to update the guide as new equipment appears on the market.
