Where do you buy this
There aren’t any yet. I’m sure you’ll hear about it here when released.
Any minute now…
Ordered! excited to finally listen to Octave Record recording
Please tell me a download will be available. I am spinner challenged.
Edit, I ordered it anyway for the collectors value (To me if nobody else) and to support PS Audio’s new endeavor. I’ll figure out a way to play it.
Just ordered my copy…
Just ordered my copy!
I purchased a copy. Looking forward to hearing it in hand. The server is very slow unfortunately. Hopefully it’s not going to crash.
Thanks guys, this is a special one! As of now, there won’t be a download, but it does come with a data disc for easy ripping.
Got the email, just ordered! Around $70 by the time shipping and exchange rate hits us here in Canada
Just ordered mine… no vinyl from Octave RECORDS?
It sucks with our crappy dollar. That’s the price we pay for Canada’s policy to stimulate manufacturing with cheap dollar instead of efficiency.
I asked and I received just ordered
It’s been nearly two years since we moved into our new digs in Boulder. The most exciting part has been watching our recording/mastering studio, led by engineer Gus Skinas, come to life. Gus is a close friend and one of the nicest and most humble gents around. The world knows Gus from his work on projects for Pink Floyd, The Rolling Stones, Stevie Wonder, Elton John, Al Kooper, George Harrison, Queen, Joni Mitchell, Chick Corea, Frank Zappa, and The Police (to mention a few). His talent is unmatched, and we’re proud to have him in the hi-fi family.
Yesterday, we made a big step forward. With Gus at the helm, PS Audio has launched our much-anticipated music label: Octave Records.
Almost every time I give a tour at the new facility I get questions about Octave. With hundreds of labels out there, what makes Octave different? You and Paul make components, why the expansion into recording? Are you just doing this because it’s cool?
Guilty as charged!
In truth, we started Octave Records for the same reason we design audio components—because we know we can make a difference. We know we can produce albums with superior sonic quality and we also remain keenly aware of the challenges faced by so many music creators. Labels have been known to sacrifice quality for profits and for mass-market appeal. For albums-sold, most labels compensate artists with pennies on the dollar. Oftentimes, labels insist on owning the artist’s music. We believe the music deserves high-quality presentation and that the artists deserve to be honored for their contributions. It’s the artists, after all, who give rise to our entire industry.
So we decided to build a label the way we think it ought to be. Octave Records uses the finest studio equipment, all centered around the acclaimed Sonoma DSD recording, mixing and mastering system. We asked Gus to personally craft each recording. And to better support musicians, Octave Records covers 100% of the studio, mixing, mastering, production, distribution and marketing costs. We also provide artists with a direct-share of retail revenues, which are ten to twenty times that of other labels. At Octave Records, the artists own their music, and we give them creative control. They’ve earned it…and we get to enjoy the fruits of their labors on our hi-fi systems!
It’s with great pride that we announce the first album from Octave Records: Out of Thin Air, a solo piano performance from renowned pianist Don Grusin.
Offered in SACD, native DSD (DVD-Audio) and CD formats, you can learn more about Octave Records and listen to samples of Grusin’s new album here https://www.psaudio.com/products/out-of-thin-air/ If you are interested in picking up a copy of this limited edition, they are available with world-wide distribution (direct from us in Boulder), however, this album is not available for digital download at this time.
I hope you enjoy listening to the album as much as we have enjoyed making it. This is the first of many.
All my best,
I Just orderd one. I can’t wait to hear it.
Must be a lot of activity. The server is S L O W right now. I’ll try again later.
Got my copy. Now, crack the whip on the new transport.
We’re not planning on a download for this one. There is a computer data disc included you can throw into your computer and RIP.
