A Couple Things...

by Chris Randall

1. Just a quick note as a reminder: if you are sending me a track for the comp, DO NOT SEND ME AN UNCOMPRESSED WAV OR AIFF. Read the last two paragraphs of the instructions again. I want an MP3 with your name and contact info in the metadata, so that I know who made the track, and how to find you again. I am, of course, not going to put the MP3 out. But if I have a folder with 70 files in it named things like "submission_1.aiff" there's no reasonable way to organize it. Just follow the instructions. If I pick your track, I will contact you about getting me the uncompressed, unmastered version, and the format I need for that. Don't try to be fancy.

2. Ricochet is now 32/64 on all platforms, and is now in the AD store for download. I forgot to mention this here. Go forth. Should be a seamless transition, and it contains a number of minor bug fixes, as well.

3. Young Americans records is releasing a quadruple album set of some of the highlights of the Daphne Oram tape collection. Looks like a really nice set, even if you don't care for this sort of thing; it is available here, and there are images of the set and three sound samples here. I just went ahead and ordered it, because these things don't come along often, and it would be nice to have. If you're not clear on who Daphne Oram is, get thee to ye olde Wikipedia.

If you pick my tune you can keep the earnings to go toward the charity of the $800 cmu-810 on ebay thats been sitting there forever.
