Ideas for our Sleep CD's
We are always looking for new ideas for our MP3 downloads. Email me with any you have!
After pondering our options, asking lots of questions, and flipping a coin I have decided to begin selling audio CD's as well as instant downloads of our sounds. The reason for this is two-fold as we also want to start a distribution company to get our relaxation and sleep sounds out into the brick and mortar world of retail sales. If I have to put the infrastructure together for that I might as well sell relaxation audio CD's on this site as well.
One of the biggest drawbacks of selling high quality audio downloads via the Internet is the size of the files. A sixty minute recording done in studio quality audio can be upwards of 100 megabyte. While this is no problem for those with high speed computer access it can present a problem to individuals with bandwidth issues. Other sites squeeze the file size down by recording at a lower Kbit/s (kilobits per second) but then the quality of the relaxation sound is greatly compromised. I will not do that.
As of today we sell not only MP3 downloads but audio CD's as well. I have not included all the sounds in this venture yet. None of the recordings in the Specialty Vault are included and some of the shorter dreamscapes are not included yet. (i.e. Snowy Mountain Hike and Jungle Canoe) but hopefully I will figure out a way to get them on CD, also.
Selling and distributing relaxation CD's will be a challenge but I am looking forward to it as I believe whole heartedly in this new kind of sleep methodology.
