Incidently Mobineko will press 100 CDs from a glass master, in 4 panel Digipacks, you provide your own artwork for 450($700), They include the Digipaks free saving an additional 210($330) but for people who sell a lot less than 100 it is still not cost effective



Have you seen any examples of Mobineko's products? I've heard mixed reports as far as quality.

Hi Mike,
No unfortunately I haven't seen any CDs manufactured by them, yes there are mixed reports as for quality and it is a little worrying considering the high unit cost if you go for the 100 option = 4.50 per disc ($7 approx). So if they sold for 10 each you would need to sell 45 to break even, if you paid someone to do your artwork your probably going to have to sell them all, and that could be a long process, and if there are quality issues, then absolute nightmare. At least doing your own CDR if it goes bad then I can replace it, its in my control, and it is instant for the purchaser, which is very important, as they don't want to be messed about to-ing and fro-ing between artist and manufacturer, they just want to listen to the music they have bought, and hopefully be able to listen to it for many years.

As an artist who releases CDR and who sell less than 100:-
For my CDR releases I use Taiyo Yuden discs, which are supposed to be very reliable, if anyone knows of any other more reliable please let me know, so I try very hard to make the releases as high quality as possible, fullsize jewel cases, colour booklets,tray cards etc,as mentioned in earlier posts.
I will also guarantee the CDR so if the disc decides to stop playing because it has "gone bad" I will replace the disc completely free, including shipping it to you, whether you have had it 1 year or 10 years plus, in fact for as long as I remain on this planet I will offer that guarantee. All you need to do is contact me.
Question:-
Does guaranteeing a free replacement disc make a difference to you guys out there who don't really buy CDR for the fear of them going bad?

Oophoi and Faryus - Forgotten Rituals



what's this one like Dave?

Have you listened to MG's Dissolution?

Deep, dark and totally absorbing, nice package too, A5 folded card with a smaller card inside for each of the three tracks. Nice collectors item.

Yes I have Dissolution by Mathias Grassow, I like him a lot and his collabs with Tomas Weiss

I have removed This Desolate Place from Musiczeit. It is now available at Bandcamp still in FLAC and high quality mp3 but at a much more reasonable price. :)

Just released a compilation of released and unreleased music.
The album contains different extracts of music from the four current Phobos albums, plus music which has appeared on my Soundcloud page but was not available to download.
The album also contains a full track from the next Phobos album "Darker" to be released sometime in 2012, as well as an extract of music from my recent live performance at Awakenings.
It is available in FLAC, mp3 etc, best of all it is free, and you can download it from:-

I hope you enjoy it, and thanks for listening.
Regards
David

Its another way for the majors to make money fast, why bother making a cd when people( the younger generation) only want a track or two. My kids who are 20, 18 and 16 buy downloads, but they don't buy downloads of whole albums, no its a track here and a track there!! My wife and I buy them Cds in the hope that they will "learn" but to be honest its lost on them. I showed them a vinyl lp a few months ago,
ooh thats cool, what do you do with it?
Well you play it on this ( a turntable) and you sit and listen to it.
What do you do while your listening to it?
Nothing, you SIT and LISTEN
Don't have time to do that
!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
