Electronic Music other: Ochre Download Store!
Written February 06 2008 , Tags: digital downloa, mp3
I hope it works, as I'm not much of a web developer, but I've cobbled together a download store based on E-Junkie - please have a look. link
It's a potential contentious move given I was previously giving the music away, but here's how the current arrangement stands:
- Free complete 128kbps 22.05kHz mp3
- 320kbps mp3 =$0.79
- FLAC =$0.99
Plus about 30% discount when buying the whole bundle - $20 for 31 FLACs, $15 for mp3.
Does that pricing sound fair to you? Does the page work well? Am I too stingy with the free mp3 quality? Too generous?
If you could have a quick look to make sure it works in your browser, that'd be great. Feel free to 'test' a purchase too. :P
$15 will, what, get you a major label release in mp3 format? like, 10 songs total? And you are offering 31?
Seems like a fair price for that much music. But I wonder if it'll seem like a lot to pay all at once for an idie release?
As a consumer, I'd rather see two "albums" for half that much.... its easier on the brain.
Plus, two albums looks more like "I have two collections of work here, get my whole catalog for cheap!"
as opposed to "I've got a bunch of random files on my computer I wanna sell.
I notice that "Circadies" isn't there anymore, but all the rest of my favorites you used to post for free are. Where did it go?
$20 for 31 FLACs seems like a fine deal. But mlbot's suggestion is worth considering. Can theses 31 tracks be put together into two reasonably cohesive albums?
i like the whole spectrum of things, from free to lossless
happy day for me.
this would be an ideal way for me to purchase video, investing in more quality as i can afford/ am interested in.
so all the money goes to you?
Okay, I got one major beef.
When I get to the download page, I gotta click every single one?
Please make a .zip folder
That's my big beef.
mlbot, you dumdum.
You can download all of them at the bottom of the table.
Yes, but when you do it sends you to a page where they are listed individually for download.
And I am totally confused which one's I've actually clicked and which I haven't, as my computer is a bit slow
what I mean, is you can pay for them all at once, but not download all at once.
Oh, my bad, you meant paid for trax
Ah, I'll make a zip option too - I had started to do that, but it means uploading everything twice as it's not an option to zip up the existing uploads on the fly the way Bleep does, unfortunately. Shall do that. And yep - I perhaps should offer some sort of split package deals, but I'm not sure how to separate. Perhaps chronologically? Alphabetically?
But thanks ml - my first customer!
You should organize them.... autobiographically!
;) I dunno, but the way my player organizes files, I'm gonna have to go input an album name for all of them anyway... so you might as well take that power out of my hands and into yours.
PS, now that you know what my real name is, I hafta kill you.
I'm sending my dog chuck norris to get you.

Hi Nick - I finally decided to take Circadies down in preparation for the next album release, though it won't be for a while. I intend to alter it slightly too.
