Filled iPod for music licensing
A few film-makers have asked us over the years to fill their iPod with our music, so that they can easily browse everything in the Magnatune catalog at their leisure, as well as pull up the songs when they are editing the film and don't have access to the Internet. Also, a lot of people simply prefer browsing through music on their iPod (such as listening in their car)
I've decided to make "we'll fill your iPod" a standard offering for people who are regularly licensing music.
If you're a film-maker, video editor, ad-agency or other organization who is regularly licensing music, give us an email or call (contact details at the bottom of this licensing page).
You'll postal mail us your iPod, and we'll mail it back to you with the entire Magnatune catalog on it, all nicely organized into genres, artists and albums.
The Magnatune web site is making much greater use of CD cover art now.
When albums are listed in genres, their covers are also now displayed:
On the artist pages, instead of a text list of albums, you'll now see small versions of the covers, and clicking on the covers plays the album:
The downside is that it's a bit busy looking at times, and can make the really long pages slower to load.
However, I personally like the striking visual effect of all those covers, and it's another, perhaps interesting way to look at albums you might be interested in. Also, the images are all a standard size, and quite small to download, so it isn't too much slower.
I think it works especially well on the artist's pages, which used to look like this, which I thought undersold the albums on the page:
