We're going to be pushing it as hard as we can. So far, the media reviews have been great.

Is there a particular song we should push? I assume one song should create buzz over and above, the album as a whole? Is there a strategy? I know nothing about marketing a cd. Did you ever hear back from the radio station I sent info on? Is it available to listen to online besides at Spotify? Even a preview?


Didn't want this post to get lost due to my other reply. I am not sure, but I bet "Jesus Wept" might be the one they push.

The distributor was having trouble meeting demand. I had to rush them some more cds last week.

Distributer having trouble meeting demand. . . well that is great news!

I will call the local station tomorrow to request "Jesus Wept." I do believe this might be the most immediately accessible and radio friendly song on the album. I also believe the Christian radio stations might be partial to it as they like to have their quota of JPMs.

what is the format on a CD?
i'm guessing downloads use MP3 and CDs use something better.
is that correct?

Audio CDs don't use a file format I don't believe. The laser shines up towards the bottom of the CD, and either reflects back or doesn't depending upon if there is a hole/bump in the aluminum metallic layer or not.

yep, iTunes store uses aac (mp4) at 256 kbps and amazon
uses MP3 variable rate of V0 and both are lossy formats. The reason
I prefer cds Big Grin .

On the other hand a cd contains WAV files which are lossless files.
This WAV files contain the uncompressed audio in the linear pulse code modulation (LPCM) format which is the standard for cds.

Wav files are uncompressed lossless (CD quality) audio files that are used by PCs and often the source file used to burn a CD master. But, the format of a CD's audio in a CD player is not a wav file. Technically it would be considered a CDA file, but really there is no such thing as a CDA file they are really just created by the operating system to show representations of the audio tracks on a CD. There really is no 'file' format to an actual audio CD. It is more of a continuous stream of raw digital data in a continuous spiral starting from the inside of the CD and ending at the outer edge of the CD.

It's basically like a digital record, the laser being the needle follows the tracks and shines upward onto the track and reflects back a binary signal based on those bumps/holes.

I have always thought that wav and CDA (CD-DA)files were the same thing. But then it is just the way the computer interprets the music in the cd. I always thought of the wav as a container for the PCM data. So the computer sees the container as a format??? Is this right?? I found this article

The audio is stored digitally on a CD via a technique known as PCM, or Pulse Code Modulation. PCM data consists of snapshots of an audio waveform’s amplitude measured at specific and regular intervals of time. The CD format consists of 44,100 measurements of the waveform’s amplitude per second, so is said to have a sample rate or sampling frequency (fs) of 44.1kHz. This is important, because the Nyquist Theorem states that the high-frequency limit of a PCM digital audio system is dictated by the sample rate, and that the sample rate must be at least double the highest frequency that will be recorded. So a 44.1kHz sample rate can theoretically store frequencies up to just above 20kHz, approximating the theoretical upper limit of the best human hearing.

PCM is a ‘raw’ or uncompressed format, meaning that all of the data that is captured is stored and all of it is used to recreate the waveform on playback. In other words, the bit-stream entering the system when recording is, theoretically, identical to the bit-stream reproduced by the system on playback. To put CD quality in context, most professional PCM audio recording systems currently use 24-bit word lengths — resulting in a theoretical 141dB (144 minus 3dB for dither) signal-to-noise ratio — and sample rates of up to 192kHz, for increased high-frequency response.

PCM data is commonly stored as WAV or AIFF files, which are relatively large files when compared with compressed formats. That’s no surprise, of course, because the whole point of audio data compression is to reduce file sizes, so that content can be more quickly downloaded over the Internet, and so that more songs can be stored on your iPod.

A wave file is a PC format file. There really is no CD player file format in that same sense. Windows assigns CDA file format to the directory of an audio CD. I think what can be confusing is that the data in a wav file and the data on a CD are both in the Linear pulse-code modulation method of encoding audio.

I don't like to quote from wikipedia, but it does talk about this in several articles.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/.cda_file

"The .cda files do not contain the actual PCM sound wave data, but instead tell where on the disc each track starts and stops."

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CD-DA

"Unlike on a DVD or CD-ROM, there are no "files" on a Red Book audio CD; there are only the physical pits and lands, which in turn represent a single encoded data stream, which ultimately represents one continuous stream of LPCM audio data, and a parallel, smaller set of 8 subcode data streams. Computer operating systems, however, may provide access to an audio CD as if it contains files. For example, Windows represents the CD's Table of Contents as a set of Compact Disc Audio track (CDA) files, each file containing indexing information, not audio data."

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/LPCM

"LPCM is used for the lossless encoding of audio data in the Compact disc Red Book standard (informally also known as Audio CD), introduced in 1982."

"On PCs, the term PCM and LPCM often refer to the format used in WAV (defined in 1991) and AIFF audio container formats (defined in 198Cool . LPCM data may also be stored in other formats such as AU, raw audio format (header-less file) and various multimedia container formats."

This is pretty good too;

SMACK! that should unstick them

thanks for the notes guys - got the basics i think:
a CD is like a record in that the information is continuous (not sampled, right?), but differs because it uses optical technology to record and readback, and digital formatting because optical can't record an analog signal...?

From Bob Bennett

DA ALERT: Oh my. I honestly can't tell you how I got to it. When I'm sick at home, I'm all over the map. Books, magazines, TV, busy work, music. Somehow I found my way to a MAGNIFICENT new song from Terry Scott Taylor and DA (a new album titled "Dig Here Said the Angel"). Find a way to hear/buy the tune "Jesus Wept". The lyrics are SO great. And Terry, you know how it is ... I can't subsist on my own "cooking", so THANK YOU SO MUCH for this song and all the stuff you've outlasted to still be doing this kind of incredible music. I've never been everyday-close to you, but we are Brothers in Song and in Grace. (Also not surprised to see Alex MacDougall and Derri Daugherty in the credits!) FB Friends ... find, listen/buy, you can thank me later!
