    Delay and reverb is not being added. Just ignore any discussion about that as it isn't happening.

    The last one is uploading now. Should be ready in about 5 minutes. i made a mediafire folder for them, hope it works.

    Sorry about the wait, I'd explain but anything now would probably be a pretty worthless explanation.

    Anyway, http://www.mediafire.com/?b8zoiy1n71y3m

    please remove my Rocket Man cover, I realise Elton John may not find the humour in it.

    Phil Collins on the other hand, is still a joker. So here's In The Air Tonight.

    Annoyingly enough, having an issue with the download. It wants me to install the media fire tool bar in order to download, but when I try installing it, I am told that I need to uninstall the previous version of the ask tool bar. I don't have the ask toolbar installed...

    Edited:

    Actually, I just realized I can download one by one.

    I'll do a bit of work on it. There is a bit of an issue with the beginning of the song being far too soft.

    Edited:

    I'm not sure if kitteh-nator intended to throw a distortion pedal on the master bus.

    Edited:

    Alright, volume leveled it. Will need to another pass tomorrow. Also need to figure out the track order and who the artists of some of these songs.

    I think that you should switch things up a bit so that 2 songs by the same guy wont be right after eachother.

    What exactly is "In The Pines"?

    Edited:

    The current track order is

    Nocturne
    Comfortably Numb
    Avast Your Ass
    One Must Fall
    The Gaming Medley
    War?
    Always and Never
    Walking On Sunshine
    Green is the Colour
    Friday I'm in Love
    In The Pines
    In The Air Tonight
    Hit Me Baby One More Time
    Beat Goes On
    The Grand Medley

    If a person submitted more than one track, it was put at the end of the album. The order of the album is semi-random, semi-chosen. The chosen part are what songs are around a song, the random part is where those songs are on the album.

    The goal was variety and decent transitions. I am going more for an album type feel, so there are some crossfades and overlaps, but they aren't poorly executed. I feel as though the volume leveling is pretty decent, but it is important to realize that it can only be so good with

    If there is any disagreement about the order, crossfades, or anything else, please let me know. I'll be uploading the album today, so it might make sense to comment upon hearing it.

    FAQ

    Q: Is it really free?
    A: Yes.

    Q: You said it was free but it is asking me for a price.
    A: Try entering in "0" for a price. If that doesn't work we likely ran out of download credits.

    Q: If I donate money where will it go?
    A: It could go one of two places. The first being to download credits. Bandcamp gives you 200 download credits each month. Download credits allows you to download the album or a song in whatever format you want for a credit per song. When the album releases, the credits get eaten up pretty quickly due to how many songs are on the album. The credit package is as follows:

    $9 USD for 300 download credits
    $20 USD for 1000 download credits
    $75 USD for 5000 download credits

    After the amount of traffic slows down to a point where nobody is really downloading anymore, the rest of the money will go towards a charity. The charity in particular will depend upon a vote granted there is a decent amount of money. If there is only 30 cents left, voting or donating wouldn't make much sense for obvious reasons.

    Q: How was the track order decided?
    A: If a person submitted more than one track, it was put at the end of the album. The order of the album is semi-random, semi-chosen. The chosen part are what songs are around a song, the random part is where those songs are on the album.

    Since I made the front cover, I might as well make a back cover, even though it'll probably just be like purple text over a white background.

    would be nice to have all the album covers from which the songs are from.

    someone came up with that idea before.
