At one time that's how you sent audio files to a CD pressing plant.

I never did it that way, but you could also send CD-ROM images.

My first experience with recordable CD-ROMs was in late 1991, so
I never bothered, but someone I know had a "digital studio" that did
as late as 1996. I lost touch with him then, I don't know how much
longer he used it.

The one CD ROM I was personably responsible for was in Feb 1992, and was done
by mastering it on a CD-ROM recordable on a PC and sending them the
recordable as a "master". Saved a $500 mastering charge which cost
almost as much as the production run of CDs.
