That slingfile site is good for big files, but does seem a bit on the slow side which is a shame. I just left it running while I was at work. Took 6 hours for the bigger file! But was downloaded when I got in.

Cannot make tunes for toffee, but will be looking very forward to hearing the remixes people come up with too. And through pure selfishness, being able to grabbing a copy for myself. :D

I had a look at Renoise a while back and nearly had a heart attack!!! Should maybe dig it out and see if it'll be any more clearer now. Even though I'd be likely to get it finished by 2025!!! :o

I have a few vids I knocked together to help with renoise - if they're of any use let me know & I'll see if I still have links for them.

@ Elusive - got mine - hopefully I'll find time to get something done.

Ah no worries mate, If you just want the Piano I can do a mixdown with just the Piano if that makes it easier? Or other elements of the track, just let me know!

I've had no time - and what I have had, being doing stuff for the vinyl / paranoid.
Hopefully will get an hour of two in the morning.
It's been a busy few weeks - if a fair few who you've sent packs to are parents, there's been getting things ready for school which started a couple of weeks back.

If you're able to, try extending the deadline a couple of weeks - hopefully get a few more entries come in.

Another reason could be trying to make something decent enough to stand up against the original.

The only reason there is a deadline is getting the pressing out in time for Christmas
It is gonna be October & you already know how long it takes, that is if the pressing goes well & there is no faults
It will be the few weeks before Christmas & no one will be buying vinyl if we leave it too long
True - will take anywhere from around 4-6 weeks after the masterings done before you've got it, and posting at xmas is a pain.
Extending for a couple of weeks would probably mean you'd be ready to ship mid(ish) November all being well.
