what i suggested is a download of an image file from which you doing physical DVDA to fulfill purchase orders.Hello Otto,
one can see, that downloads don't help the big industry before some loss. And we self like the physical discs. I trhink, producing music is a total artwork including packing, cover,information prints.
there are different prices, quite often fluctuating up and down, depending on availability, rarities,By the way, please write me the prices in the USA for a DVD-Audio (in the past), SA-CD (most classic) or music DVD. In Gemany those discs cost usual araound € 20,-- which is of corse a few more in $.
I third for Omega. Their quad albums (200 Years after the Last War, Omega III) were released by a German label, Bellaphon. Dietrich, I do encourage you to contact Bellaphon to discuss about the possibilities.Hi, I second the recommendation for Omega. They released two sq quad albums. Perhaps some others could be remixed if you made a deal. I don't know who owns the masters now but they originally recorded in Hungary, can't be an emi size company.
now an answer for different askes. By the way - those discussion may be imossible with people or managers from Universal, Sony Music, Warner etc. An advantage of an fan-own label.
I am not sure, if for "Omega" exist by other fans also a big interess. But it would be a nice example. I can ask the label Bellaphon generally, how many are the costs of a studio recording rough tape of 16 tracks, when they would sell or lend it out for a re-mix of quadraphonic sound.
Hi Dietrich.Actual our DVD-Audios are burned (DVDRs?). But they sound the same well as pressed. Pressed DVD's are unfortunately four times more expensive as by burned. When we have approximate sales of 250 pieces for each production and feel, that also the next will have the same numbers, we will also press the DVD-Audios. Each production cost € 4.000. So we need 250 sales to have only a balance of costs and earnings - without looking for a profit. We make our activity with the Quadro Surround label anyway by idealistic intensions. If we would have in future profits, we would take the money only for bigger productions. But now we are on beginning. DTS is also a well technic for surround and was taken for some DTS CD's. But present we work with Dolby digital. I have heard it too and the result is excellent.
