Does Beatport/Juno sell vinyl rips?

Post by Themis » Fri Jul 05, 2013 5:22 pm

i bought this today on juno

http://www41.zippyshare.com/v/80602190/file.html

the audio level increase in the first 2 seconds is in the file - its not a result of my editing.
huge background noise
and at the end 10 seconds of needle vinyl noise

WTF

if i want to play bad sounding vinyl rips i download them from a blog, and not pay even more money for a WAV download.

for me thats an absolut scandal.

what are you guys thinking?

I think they do. Bought a track from juno download (Enrico Mantini) that has a slight bit of surface noise in the beginning. It must be a (good) vinyl rip. It doesn't sound bad though and is perfectly playable.

I have some myself. They sell what labels send them I suppose. Not their "fault". It will be nice a little info note or something like "vinyl rip" in the title of the release.

I agree.. I've had some things that added mins but no sound. like 4 mins of silence afterward.. and wrote them, (beatport), it was years ago, but I think that was the response they sent too..

it was what the label had sent them..

Ive got Kerri Chanlder - Three on Vinyl and it is quiet, like really quiet. Then I stumbled across it on beatport too the exact same quality maybe worse. In my opinion they defo do!
Whatever that is, What ever that is!

i wrote them and got my money back, in my opinion labels should only be alowed to sell the real deal when they selling digital.

to rip a vinyl and sell it is not whats expected if you buy a track digital, so that is misleading at least.

You'd think it would be easier for the label to send the bounced audio file to the distributor/online store, rather than ripping it?
