Hey, go buy a record...

by Chris Randall

Since Diamond Dave is planning to have my Creative Commons license revoked (!?!) I better release everything now! In that light, my latest as Micronaut is now available at shopPOSI. Pick up a copy, and you'll be enabling my snobby gear habit. Digital only release, $6.00 a throw.

Note that if you want an audio demonstration of Audio Damage products, there's no better way than to pick this album up. Other than the Eclipse and the usual Waves limiting products, every effect on this album came out of our shop.

Would pick it up, but I think I'll wait until there's a real CD, if you don't mind Chris. Personally, I'm too snobbish to be satisfied with just digital files, I want to expand my CD collection. It hardly impresses any chick if I pull out my HD from pocket, and say; "Here's my album collection, over 1500 albums, babe." As opposed to showing a wall full of CD's and LP's - like now.

I think you might be waiting a while. It doesn't seem like it will be available in a tangible media unless you do the footwork yourself.

Well, if you want to wait for a real CD, you're gonna be waiting a long time. This one is digital only.

I vastly prefer CDs myself, but I rip 'em as soon as I get 'em, and then the CD sits in a box for what reason I can't name. As a label owner, I'll actually be quite bad when we don't have to devote a whole wing of our house to holding boxes of stock. I figure the days of the CD as a viable medium for delivery are quite numbered. In 5 years (sooner, hopefully) you won't be able to buy one at all.

For what it's worth, all our shit is encoded in LAME alt preset standard, and sounds (to my ears, on my monitors) basically indistinguishable from what's coming directly out of Nuendo. Take that as you will.

Tsk, well, deal breaker for me. Although with the current exchange rates that's not big of a price. Will think about it.

Er, just something that I thought about and I am actually rather curious. Does that comment that it sounds same as in Nuendo mean you work in 44100/16bit projects? Personally I always work in 24bit and 48000 and I always notice rather clear difference whenever I downsample to 16bit and 44100, no matter the dithering algorithm.

I work in 44.1/24, because the highest quality delivery mechanism my music ever appears on is 44.1/16. I don't have enough free time in the day to sweat the fact that 99.999999% of the people in the world think that 96K MP3s played on a stock car stereo are the pinnacle of audio achievement.

i enjoy the copy protection you have on your plugs. curious how you protect your files, or if you dont?

i'm in the process of considering releasing a little thingee myself, and fear ye olde --> karma. as i, back a while, used to engage in music sharing. and i don't mean mix tapes...

so, any thoughts on this? particularly as you see the feature become discless?

We don't have any copy protection at all on our music releases. Most of the albums are released under a Creative Commons Sampling + license, and it goes against the terms of the license to have any DRM on them.

Your karma is your own business, of course.

Uh... did someone just say they were gonna wait for a CD because it wasn't just digital files?
