This is the list of all contributions published in this section, in chronological order.

Starting last month we lengthened the period of time to download your purchased music from 10 days to 99 days. So all music purchased even 3 months ago may be redownloaded at:

We also implemented a function to download with no cookies activated or cookies deleted. On the page you will find a box and some easy instructions to follow...

We have just started a work of transference of our files to Amazon Web Services. In terms of navigating the site anything won't change while there will be significant improvements in download files in high quality (.wav): the downloading of files is certainly faster and more stable.

In a few days the transaction will be completed and the results comparable with the current system.

Due to various requests we have just implemented the payment method with PayPal. Purchases will be easy, fast and secure as before: from the page of payment (ex. you can now choose between the options: BankPass and PayPal.

Good listening!

We have just launched a new different version of with some variations. The first one regards the new player (see on the pages dedicated to the album, here); this is entirely programmed in Flash, Javascript and HTML5. All recent versions of Chrome, Firefox, Opera and Explorer have been tested for it, so, keep your browser up-to-date!

The previews, unlike before, are no longer 64 kbps full-track, but of 35 seconds and high quality (192 kbps MP3) to test the recording quality (which is our main goal). I hope you'll understand the reasons behind this choice: in fact, other than an economic reason, we hope that by hearing such a great sound you will then want to download the entire album. Remember that artists earn 50%, with the only exception of a couple of albums; on the purchase page it will be specified when you are donating half to the artist and when not.

Another implementation is about the art look of our site, which we have "modernized". We have always kept the site very simple so that neither you (nor us) are distracted by anything other than our recordings.

We have further expanded the database adding some useful data for better understanding how the recordings have been made. In fact, on the same table as for the player, there are two other windows: "Album Introduction" and "Info"; in the latter you will find some technical detail about the recordings, including credits and recording location and instruments used.


Dear customers,

(ZIP files) - OnClassical is currently working to ensure faster album downloads by uploading zip files on our servers. Each file will include all the tracks of an album, so that you will have one file to download rather than many files. Only a few days and our team will be done!

(HD tracks) - Many of our customers are asking to make our master recordings available, rather than CD-quality files. This would be possible, and it was OnClassical's original intention. OnClassical was the first label in Italy to make .wav files available online, so why not be the first label to sell HD tracks? Our current server would allow us to do so, and in the very near future our customers will have some of our hi-fi recordings in 88.2 kHz x 24 bit to download as well.

(Hi-res covers) - Once more, we regret not to have published the cover art-work, but our limited production time only allows us to produce the cover image. However, all covers are made with care by using high quality images purchased within the public domain resources (high resolution images have a cost nonetheless, even when the images are free). For our customer's greater satisfaction, all our covers will soon be available in 1440 x 1440 pixels x 300 dpi (print quality), and will be available as you access each recording's profile.

The team at OnClassical will be away for a few days, April 24-27. For assistance, please contact studio@(ourdomain) or call +39 339 3162931.

We at OnClassical hope that you will enjoy the improvements we have made to our website!

We are moving the site into a new server. The modifications should be terminated within hours. We regret for any inconvenience.
