    Guys I was just wondering... I'm not in music business at all (I don't have any active release, I just buy and mix tracks that I like), but why do big labels still contribute to create a war between vinyls and digital tracks?!

    I chose to go digital not only because it's cheaper, but also because if I buy vinyl they don't provide me my non-lossy track file.


    Why don't they just give away "both" formats (maybe with a little discount on the digital release) if you buy vinyl?! Everyone would be happy!

    Nice one, cheers! :)

    Thing is I wouldn't like to see a special thing like vinyl die just because they're a little bit more expensive than digitals...Even if I run digital atm.
