I have hybrid synths, but I'm very very busy ATM... What did you think in terms of dates? I think it would be best to just fix a deadline...

If you're willing to contribute a track or have the time to do so, what would you need? A week? 2 weeks? I probably won't push it any further than 2 and that's only if there are others that can add something by then. I still need to wrap up my mix which I should be able to squeeze in by the end of tonight, but that only makes 3 submissions.

I'd say let's keep the deadline to make it fair to those who tried to meet it. (Yes, I'll have mine in by EOD.) Those who want to participate can join the next round.

Personally, I've got no issue with waiting a while longer, but if it's gonna be longer than another week, it'd be nice to know that there are people who will submit something at the end of that time...

If it's an extra week I'll be able to submit something, won't have anything done by tonight though.

h**l, I'd like to hold out for Stab's entry just to hear the hybrid-modular approach...

Very well. I'll push the deadline until the end of the day next Sunday the 9th. That gives everyone who wants to try a full week and weekend, plus, I also want to hear what Stab does. I understand wanting to keep the deadline, but there are only 4 submissions including mine at the moment.

Also, I still need to submit mine :? . It would have been up sooner, but I haven't been able to do the mixdown yet. One of my roommates is on a new job with a graveyard shift so I haven't had as many opportunities to mix on my monitors without waking him up :P.

I'll probably do it during the Super Bowl, everyone will be awake for that, especially here in Seattle with the Seahawks and all.

I got something 3/4 done but not good enough for anyone to listen to, sorry. Had an album come in that someone wanted mixed in a hurry that took up a lot of my time this week.

Well, we've still only got 4 submissions and I wouldn't want to see something you worked that much on go to waste so I'll give you some more time. How much time do you think you'd need?

Sorry for the delays, but I just wanted to hear back from Stab to see if he would be able to finish his song in the next couple more days or so. What does everyone want me to do, start voting now or give Stab a little more time?

I reckon go without me, I might have a chance to finish it off tomorrow but don't want to hold things up more cause chances are I'll have to do something else anyway.
