About Codafile

CD’s are so out of style. In 2000 everybody was hyped about iTunes and now we send you with your very own download code on tour.

Nicolas Kuri
Futuristic? Yes, maybe.
The right time? Long time overdue.
We got the answer for all of you who complain about not having a CD player anymore but only have the opportunity to buy CD’s on concerts. Finally a download is no longer used only as a virtual good rather it can be combined creatively with physical products.
But first try Codafile on your own on www.codafile.net and download your PDF-File with the Code "Codafile".

Services

We are all natives to the music business and have over 10 years of experience.

Nicolas Kuri
Our vision is to give all of them which normally use a CD as a data media a new solution, which is much cheaper, has a higher user-friendliness and helps to achieve more sales. This is all given by our in 2015 founded service Codafile. Most oft the customers buy CD’s nowadays only to
upload it on their laptops, MP3 Players or smartphones. After that, most of the data media is going to get dusty in the cabinet or thrown into the bin. Our basic idea is to pass over this step and to make the main content – the music – easier to achieve.

Experience in all areas sets us.

Jonas Liedel
For us, it’s not just our task to offer you a nice portal, where your fans redeem your codes. We also want to combine a conventional physical product with a download, so that your fans have a nice object to take home with. In here there’s no limit set to your creativity. For your inspiration we also got a small collection of ideas,
which should help you to get creative and set your own ideas free. We are looking forward and are providential for every new and unprecedented implementation and distribution of a codafile code. As we are experienced designer and graphic artists we also help with the implementation. Just contact us.

Made by musicians for musicians. Fairness and underwriting are our basic ideas.

Tobias Rehm
To not demand a big basic amount from bands is a basic idea since the beginnings of Codafile. We wanted to found a service, which is included in the selling but also takes the risk of a publication. No selling, no bill from Codafile. If you have selling, therefore we receive downloads on our server, we
send you a monthly bill. The costs from the bill do only cover our costs like development costs, server costs, administrative effort and last but not least GEMA license fees which come back by 85% to the author of lyrics & music. If you have any questions about the GEMA we’ll be happy to help you.

Steady in the pulse of time and always a will to perfection.

Guiding principle of Codafile
We founded and programmed Codafile, because we observed the direction in which the music business is leading. In 2015 the time was right to establish Codafile, to give bands the opportunity to sell their music in a economical and modern way at their shows.
Data security and a 24/7 customer service are our highest priorities. Your music as well as your personal user data is sheltered on our high security servers. We try our best to support your requests within the first 24 hours to offer with it unbeatable support.

The newsletter became such an elementary path of information.

Nicolas Kuri
In times where social media platforms inform your fans with nearly nothing but paid postings, the newsletter became such an important path of information to your fans.
A basic idea of Codafile was to give you the opportunity to log the email adresses of your fans on our servers, to make them available for you afterwards.

Prices

Codafiles pricing model for bands and musicians is quite easy. It’s important to us to participate you as an artist in a fair way and to also take the risk of your selling. To put it in a nut shell, there a no high starting payments. You only receive a bill from Codafile, when one of your fans honours one of your codes. The biggest part of our variable costs is license payments to GEMA which we have to raise. If you’re registered at the GEMA and you fully own the rights of your songs, you’ll get back instalments in the form of royalties. To find out more about our pricing model just use the download button on www.codafile.net with the code "Preise" to get a PDF-File. That was easy, right?
