And The Hits Just Keep On Comin'...

by Chris Randall

Just put away another 64-bit update, this time to Automaton. Every platform is now 32/64, and there are some minor bug fixes, stuff you probably wouldn't have noticed anyhow, but will definitely not notice now.

Free update, in the store now; if you're an owner, go grab v1.1.0, and don't say we never gave you anything.

In entirely unrelated news, to add insult to injury I seem to have gotten the Mother Of All Colds. Or a fairly mild flu, possibly. So I am once again bedridden. This has given me plenty of time to just sit and think, time I would normally spend doing shit without thinking about it, so everyone is probably better off.

One of the things I thought about today was as follows: the vast majority of AI readers are musicians with the ability to output some interesting music. I am pondering the idea of doing an AI compilation album. Now, when I say "album" I mentally picture an actual vinyl record, but there's no way I could afford to have such a thing made myself. (Believe me, I've been trying for years now.) But if we all threw in... well, something to consider anyhow. Is there interest for such a thing? It would be for a suitable charity, of course, not a cash-generating enterprise.

I'm most definitely down for a physical compilation. Well any sort of comp, really. I'd be more than willing to throw my money into it as well.

Also, sorry to hear that you're still under the weather. I remember when we moved to Pittsburgh. I don't think that anyone in the family was actually well for about two years. We had to get ourselves acclimated to the particular strains of germs and molds here. It was definitely teh suxor. But we got over it, and now I haven't had any bugs that lasted more than the standard week or so of a flu since. Hopefully once this is all over you'll be roughly immune to that part of America.

My first thought was yay, I would love to be on vinyl but then I thought what that would cost me. I'm not wealthy so I think I'll have to pass this one. I really wish you good luck though :-)

I think as it is Chris idea from the beginning then he should be the judge alone and decide what tracks to carve into that black piece of plastics. After he's cured from the flu ofc

I'll represent the NAMM Fusion track that kicks it into party mode.

not to put the cart before the horse but...

complete mastering in the NE is great. Dietrich Schoenemann is the man. will do short runs also.

of course there is united record pressing and archer.. both get pretty busy but i think also do short runs of high quality vinyl.

and +1 for "experimental electronic"

Oh yeah. Totally down with making this happen, whether any track I have would be up to the quality of the company I keep. I will certainly cull a few of my more finished tracks and put them up for consideration, vinyl or bandcamp. Regardless I will be a supporter and booster.

And, yeah, an ancillary release of remix exchanges could be a cool bonus.

I'm in... fucking absolutely.

Count me in !

To help with the charity idea, there could be an "entry fee"; and Chris could choose a local organisation for us to support.

And I'd be happy with either just CR as the judge or the small group- no voting.

Pay to Play ....hmmmm I put these kind of e-mails in spam .

Paying for the LP is cool .
