Help Configuring Membership Plugin

I have a website in which I release a new audio mp3 each month and I want to use the Membership Plugin to allow users to subscribe to my website monthly to get access to the audio download.

I would like each member to be able to login and hear each months audio either by listening to it on the website or by downloading it.

Each audio file will be released with a website page / post that includes images, text an audio teaser and the actual audio file.

The only content I really need to protect is the actual audio file and audio download button.

I want the public to be able to view everything else including the audio teaser so they are motivated to sign up.

Now, my main questions are these.

If someone signs up in the first month, that works out nicely because they have access to everything as it becomes available because they started at the beginning.

But, what if someone signs up during month 3 ?

I don’t want them to have access to months 1 and 2 because they have not paid for it yet, but i DO want them to be able to buy it if they wish to.

I have been running this program for a year and I have about 100 monthly subscribers. Each month I add new subscribers but, I also add new audio so most people are signing up somewhere in the middle and their subscription starts with whichever audio file is for the month they signed up in and then all audio going forward.

How do I handle the months that they missed?

Should I start new subscribers at the beginning?

My audio files are sometimes time sensitive so if someone starts at the beginning … they may be viewing out dated material.

thanks in advance for all help

best,

Israel
