Title: Precursors Albums Question
Post by: Chad on November 17, 2003, 11:59:23 pm
Question:

I'll buy every single album released on this page, provided I understand exactly what it is that I'm getting?

http://www.ampcast.com/music/24875/albums.php

Can we get more details?  Is it a CD-R with the music burned in CD Audio format?  Front and Rear Cover graphics printed in color and the appropriate size to fit in a case?  CD Label applied?

7.99 include shipping?  One shipping charge for multiple CDs?

ETC, etc.  

Would make groovy christmas presents.  ;D

The Soundtrack albums are from the mp3 files (192kbit) on a CD-R (silver I think) with gray scale print on it (not sticker), covers printed with color laser printer from high resolution images (higher than the ones provided for download). Jewel case with black tray. Shipping, probably not. You should join as ampcast fan and see yourself. Precursors gets $0.00 from every sold cd.

When those cds are ready, we have plans for completely new album, new songs, remixes, even inspired originals. CD mastered and in full CD quality (means, not from mp3 files, but from the original master audio) - CD-R still though. But more about it when it's time..

Are the CD-R albums simply the MP3s copied to the cd to be played in your favorite PC with a mp3 player or are they CDA (CD Audio) so that I an stick it straight into my car CDA music player?

CD Audio. Basically you could make the cd yourself too, just by burning the downloadable mp3 files as audio CD, but from ampcast you'd get nice covers too (thus the low price for the albums). I haven't seen any sample CDs myself, so I don't know how it really looks, but should be just fine and nice quality.

And as I said, later there will be high quality mastered CD, not from mp3s, but from real song masters.
