But everything goes thru Elementas before the final mix for the CD is pressed, and every artist sends him their own digital master ..
If Mentas sent DLSite each individual song master as he received them, then it's a true digital web lossless release ..
If DLSite just ripped the CD in .wav and Mentas agreed to let 'em sell it, then it's a CD rip ..
Some people just like to rip their lossless audio in different programs other than iTunes, like EAC & Foobar ..
Either way we all win cause A-One receives a portion of the sale＋royalties ～ and the artists participating in these compilations get exposure & fans！
I like the CD too cause of the spiffy photography & stuff .. but it's definitely a nice deal for people that can't obtain the physical release for one reason or another！^^ ～ ♪
