We don't want to stop CD, but we can't press more than 200 for most of our releases. So 500 to 200 as written.

Best regards,

Lucas Giorgini,
Label manager,

The Omega Productions Records,


Thanks, Mr. Giorgini. I understand now that you are limiting units to 200. It's either 200 CDs or no CD pressings at all, so you are reducing 500 down to 200.

It is interesting to note here that according to Mr. Giorgini - he wrote this in the French Underscores forum just a few days ago - the vinyl editions of their titles sell much better than their CD equivalents. Therefore the vinyl releases will NOT be reduced from 500 down to 200 units.

Exactly right!

Our last release is the proof than pressing 500 CD units isn't a good thing for us for the moment: more stock, more fees. And the sales aren't so good than the vinyl release (more than 300 units sold).
So, to continue to having a coherent catalog, offering the analog / digital combo like the golden age of the soundtrack and for the respect of our fans, we "just" prefer reducing quantities for the CD.

200 CD units are perfect for erotic / porn soundtracks, "vintage" horror like Jean Rollin, and for some very recent horror movies without a hugh fanbase, more as a technical release.
We can adjust to 300 units for some Jess Franco, and we stay at 500 or 1000 for some very very popular releases like we did for Ghostland.

We are very conscious about our limits, and we know we aren't like Varèse or Intrada: pressing 3000 CD or just 1000 units is suicidal for our little market.

Thank you for your understanding,

Best regards,

Lucas Giorgini,
Label manager,
