Altavoz has pioneered the development of Distribution as a Service (DaaS) for other distributors. And we want our suppliers to know our business is a service not your music. With that in mind our parnters can choose how they want the release to come out via our distribution deals.

Physical Distribution Deal
Cassettes, CDs and Vinyl are still selling
Ask anybody “in the know” and they’ll be quick to tell you that’s digital distribution is where you should put your music. After all, everybody gets their music through iTunes, and nobody bothers with physical media. That’s common knowledge. Of course, it’s also completely false. The truth is, 60% of all music sales in last week according to MusicCaptilist were either CDs or vinyls, sold at your average retail store.
The Altavoz Difference
We think you deserve that chance. The big labels are out to wring every penny out of artists, but we don’t think that the music business has needs to say that way. We think that it is better to partners with our artists, rather than adversaries. We don’t think it’s right to conjure up contracts hundreds of pages long just to confuse people. We’re out to help artists, not use them until there’s nothing left and our plan for physical only distribution is very simple.

Altavoz Entmt is pleased to announce the addition of Manufacturing on Demand Music MODM as a new service. Our label SOV just made this press release available. This is a new choice for Artists, Bands and Labels when considering whether to offer a physical release, especially in CD format vs Vinyl or Cassettes. This new approach to manufacturing will also our whole supply cycle to truly use the BuyingThis(TM) capabilities of Altavoz to pinpoint and deploy physical music in nearly in real time – based upon our Fan Heat Map and pre-sales from Amazon.com Bestbuy.com FYE.com Target.com and Walmart is part of our promise of being the Future of Entertainment Today(TM).
What is MODM Simply ship us or digitally transmit printer-spread paginated artwork, that is stored in our print-ready reproduction process; include music in WAV or FLAC formats, choose a Template format give us the permission to offer this Dic-on-Demand services in the form of album burns to Redbook CD (meaning only one burn may be provided to purchasing consumer per sale of said album) and we’re ready to go into mass production from 1-100000.
MODM for our Libary Distribution Deal(TM) and School Music Deal(TM) partners moves the conversation from should we to why not. The risk is asymmetric to the advantage. Since Altavoz has already seen the power of having product in the digital and physical music ecosystems. Making it happen when and only there is a demand is the next logical step.
In the words of our partners at AMPED “MOD maintains the fire and viability of physical CD’s by preserving and expanding the titles currently available to consumers today. Because we’ve reduced the risk down to the cost of an one-day seminar.
This is truly unprecedented for large catalog owners of labels that are running on dreams and shoestrings.

The Data of Music from an AltaData.co
The ability as content aggeraotors that assign or manager Artists, Bands and Labels ISRC, UPC, and manager the uploading of Data of Music into SuperFile, NARMEDI425, HooplaDigital and all following DDEX standards means that Altavoz is in a unique position to watch the flow of data from conception to fans and have been doing since longer than any company on line.
Altavoz 1st showed up at Narm 1995 with a full domain that allowed us by 1996 to supply our stores including BestBuy with the log file information about activity on our website. Which is the ground work for our ClickstoBricksDistribution.com strategy which has been the hall mark of Altavoz since it restarted in 2011.
Today beyond our participating in global intellectual property efforts, and developing Distribution as a Service #DaaS or which combined with our Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) appoach to software for Supply Chain management. When added to BuyingThis(TM) FanHeatMap and MusicTryOuts(TM) Altavoz is now aggregating and collected our own Crowd sourced data. This data combined with the sell thought data, our existing data plus partners data means that the Data of Music is really at our, and soon your, finger tips.
As many are now taking up the mantel of the Blockchain which Altavoz covered during the Panel on CryptoCurrency and Alternative Payments MusicBiz2014 and CEO Nelson Jacobsen blogged about on MusicCapitalist.com back in March of 2014. And they like us understand how important to entertainment and in particular music; And, how they can take advantage of the Distributed Automatic Corporation aspects of Crytpo. It won’t take too much research to realise that having these keys encoded from the very start into the music making supply chain so no matter what the format array of audio file types, like AIFF, Blu-Ray, MP3, FLAC, Wav the public and private keys are always with it. Which would allow the DAC part of Crypto to actually work.
To that end will be submitting to the MetaData gather during MusicBiz2015.com a proposal to use two of the unused EDI 425 File slot to hold a public and private encryption of key which Altavoz will start to use with our CryptoCurrency the AltavozCoin As Facebook rescently posted
“The amount of traffic from Facebook to Internet – we call it “machine to user” traffic – is large and ever increasing, as more people connect and as we create new products and services.”
What’s involved in generating a Public and Private Key. From something as simple as loving into Terminal on your computer and typing in ssh-keygen -t rsa to bitcoin and other cryptocurrenties the process of generating a key pair (looks like this 0C28FCA386C7A227600B2FE50B7CAE11EC86D3BF1FBE471BE89827E19D72AA1D) one private and one public.
AltavozEntmt believes that assigning the Public Key to the Metadata of current DDex, Musicbiz 425File, VSDA and new unforseen format field will protected the creators and ensure this new age of the blockchain is embraced by the Music Biz and we look forward to talking about it during MusicBiz2015.com
PS. The future is here and next generation CrypoCurrencyData(TM) and MusicLyricsData(TM) will be needed to be interoperable with not only DDEX standards ones that DAC’s will require and that starts with a Public and Private Key Pairs..
