Default Pre Master Problem

I've just created a pre-master of a track I've made. All the parts were recorded at 24bit 48Khz and it was rendered to this as well (Using Ableton) The WAV file on my computer works fine when I listen to it again in the DAW but when I burn the file to a CD-R and drag and drop the WAV in there are dropouts in the sound of the file.


Im going to send the disc off for a final master and just wondering if the drop outs are coming from the disc reading slowly (therefore meaning the file itself is actually OK) or if I need to do something else to try and avoid this problem from happening? Anybody got any ideas on this?

Firs of all (to be a pedant) that is a final mix, not a pre-master. Bizaarrely the pre-master is what you get back from (the master is the process of cutting a glass/vinyl master).

Now, pedantry aside, as you trying to play the cdr in a player other than your daw? If so, the likely problem is that most players (aside from expensive high end ones) cannot play 24 bit cds.

Burn a couple and send them. The ME will call you and tell you if there's a problem.

Is there some reason why it needs to be at 48Khz? It needs to be send to mastering at 24/44.1 unless it's a embedded audio for a video file.

No reason in particular, I was working under the presumption that the 48khz would mean a better quality file and all the parts were recorded at 24/48. I spoke to the mastering engineer and he advised and explained why its prob best to do things 44 for future projects but was happy enough to accept the file.
