How to create Hybrid SACD?

Postby prg1099 » Tue Jan 27, 2015 11:20

I am new to SACD authoring. After reading manual and try and error, I've managed to send SACD UCMF with CD DDP to the factory. This is their reply:

""Hi Mr.

Our Japan mastering engineer checked both masters (HD layer), and found that

content of HD layer is single spec (SCS), not Hybrid (SCH).""

So, I went through the process again. But can't find anywhere that I can set the disc to Hybrid disc.

Please tell me where is the Hybrid setting function? Or, how to correctly prepare a Hybrid Disc?

Many many Thanks

Here's a picture (attached) of the location of the 'Hybrid' SACD Disc selection field.

It's strange for you to have this problem, as 'Hybrid' is the default. The most common mistake is to forget to change the channel layout to 5.0 from the default of if that applies to you, check the channel layout ,too.
