Sound Test X: About Time released!

It's About Time too!

The's own little music collection project has been on hiatus for a while now, much like the rest of the site has been. Sound Test 9 was released August 2006, and that's probably longer than anyone thought it had been, but the time just passes so fast these days I guess. We made the first forum announcement about the starting of the Sound Test 10 on 27th of February, 2008, which is when some of us started picking our tracks. We never set a schedule for it, knowing that we probably couldn't stick to one anyway. As I recall, we a got a fair amount of submissions reasonably fast, but as active members were but a handful, we came up short. As with everything else, we needed more people. And so it took us quite a while to get a CD's worth of music ready.

But even after that it wasn't smooth sailing. BAMAToNE, who was managing STX, got busy, and doing the finalizing of the files and tracklist took longer than expected. When he finally was able to do that, just a few days ago, he forwarded the final tracklist to silverDistortioN for the artwork. And even then our STX birthing troubles were not behind us. When silverDistortioN was making the covers, his Photoshop crashed and he lost the original cover. Which was apparently superior to the final (still awesome) cover.

So now it's finally out. If you know how to use BitTorrent, you can get it from The Torrent Tracker. If you don't know how to, fear not. Locke has now posted the album on our media server for direct download as well!

Pez: It crashed on save, which corrupts the file.

(Trying very hard not to extend middle finger.)

Thank you for your helpful advice.
