Limited Runs of Physical Audio CD's
As well as making our audio productions available for digital download, we are also asked frequently if we sell our work on physical audio CD's. Until now, we've struggled to make them available because they work out too costly to have produced for us, plus designing and creating them takes a lot of production time.
However, after some careful planning, we decided to experiment with a cottage-industry-style approach and manually produce some CD's ourselves, right here at home on the kitchen table.
So far, we’ve designed and produced a small handful of physical CD’s (listed in our CD shop here), and we will be adding new CD titles to the collection as we design and make more, provided there is demand for them.
These discs take a long time to design and make so it’s important that we spend the available design time creating CD’s that people actually want. Please do let us know if you are after a particular track/album on CD.
What Track(s) Would You Like on cd?
It’s important that we spend the available design time creating CD’s that people actually want, so please do let us know if you are after a particular track on CD.
There are two main factors that govern our ability to produce CD's...
1) The length of the audio track...
Audio CD's can only hold up to 80 minutes of audio on 1 disc. This is why producing an entire sleep album on CD will be almost impossible as it will require multiples of discs. However we can produce individual or multiple recordings on s CD, provided the sum total of the tracks do not exceed 80 minutes per disc. We could also produce a 2/3/4 disc package, with each disc holding up to 80 minutes.
2) Copyright license
Some of the audio we produce is governed by strict licensing and we are not able to sell everything we publish on YouTube. The audio we have available in our CDBaby shop has all been cleared for sale, and therefore is a good way to check if a certain audio production has the necessary licensing/clearance to be produced on CD. We can also potentially use some of our more recent tracks from YouTube.
