Yes - you would need to package up the album contents as a .zip file and sell that via the vault

But how would I display it if say it had 14 tracks that needed a soundclip, I thought of some kind of flashplayer with all the songs in it? we need a buy whole album button

You would have your tracks available individually and uploaded as normal, and an additional vault file which is the album zipped with artwork, lyrics etc. The visitor can preview each of the tracks and buy separately, or can buy the entire album with a single click.

sounds like a soultion , But a mod would be better like a buy whole album price, This kidna sucks , because we will loose sales a potential customer is not going to know to look in the store to buy the whole album.

You would use ranking to display the album vault item on your album page.

You could set it up to retrieve the vault_name which you would make the album name, or possibly make the vault tag (category) the album name.

I agree. I have been requesting this mod since i purchased the first release of ver.3.x.
It makes more since to have the customer select all tracks at a special price and then download that way, instead of zipping a huge file and uploading it.

Yes this would be a very handy feature. Some check boxes next to each song perhaps?

Having albums separate from songs would be good too as a lot of record company sites have things like 'top albums' as well as 'top songs'.

Displaying "Top Albums" is done by ranking your vault sales and using a custom field checkbox for "album" or perhaps checking for the .zip extension.

If you wanted to combine album sales with individual song sales you would need to use smarty {math} in your template.

However, this will only show sales from your site, and most labels/artists will want to show their actual top albums rather than the site sales statistics. So you would most likely want to do the same as other sites and record labels, and choose the albums that you want to market in your "Top Albums" slot manually.

Most music sites I've been to have this feature.
Where you can buy the entire album, etc. It will show the picture of the album,. list
all the tracks and
have a album price and ind. song price.

Any developers out there that know how to do this?
Or is this some expensive custom coding?
