Forget what you read, quality counts.  Our 96kHz files outsell our CD Quality 20 to 1 !  

We've also seen that sales of singles encourages the full album purchase.  While full length discs don't sell as many numbers as singles, dollar for dollar, customers are spending the same.  All you need to do is send us the disc, we'll do the rest.

Capture those fans?  We can add a ReverbNation mailing list/ fan collector or other widgets to the DN! site.

Tired of no flexible pricing?  You set price.  Have a 9 minute song?  Make it $4, not $0.99

MIchael Gaither Interviews Cookie Marenco on Production Techniques

OTR would like to thank Michael Gaither for coming by in Feb 2010 for these impromptu interviews.  He did a terrific job.  Michael has also interviewed many terrific artists who have recorded at OTR.  You can visit his website or subscribe to his blog here.

Transcript from Michael's blog. 
In episode #83, Cookie talks about her history in the music industry, why she never left analog tape, and why she loves working with acoustic artists. This episode includes two examples of Cookie's work: A cover of Warren Zevon's "Mutineer" recorded by Jenna Mammina and Matt Rallings and "Make It Rain", the title track to the new release from Keith Greeninger and Dayan Kai. (Not uncoincidentally, Keith and Dayan will be the guests on the next episodes of "Songs and Stories.")

Episode #84 is an audio tour of Cookie's Belmont, California studio. I've learned to just hit RECORD as soon as I start talking to someone, which I have to admit was a very good idea in this case. With the tour, we get even more insight into Cookie's approach to music, recording, and her engineering intern program.
