This was a lot of work. But now, the prerelease for Verschluckbare Kleinteile has been completed. By now, you readers should already have gotten your individual download codes via email – if not, please let me know!
First things first – this thingie below is to make use of your download code!
With all the documentation so far, there’s not that much that I want to tell you – but there’s still some things that I need to tell you. So here goes, right below the notorious player…
1. About this Prerelease
This is a prerelease, and it will differ in some detailed aspects from the final release – scheduled for 12-12-12.
- a “Hammer guitar” part by Neil Alexander will be added to Promenade,
- Wehgetan will receive an acoustic hihat part,
- the mastering details might change if something comes up,
- cover art is in an early mockup stage right now – this will change the most.
The release is supplied in two audio formats: 44.1kHz/16 bit MP3 (in individual files) and 48kHz/24bit as a single FLAC (together with replication sheet, if you want to create individual tracks out of this). This means for you:
- If you want to give it a quick spin on your mp3 player, use the individual MP3 files,
- If you’re for audiophile listening, take the big FLAC (you know you want to!),
- If you want something “in between”, e.g. individual 320kbps 48kHz MP3, start from the FLAC and replication sheet, and use your own tools.
2. What I want from you
Feedback! For simple feedback (especially regarding mastering, because this is something that can still be changed for the final release) I’m always happy, and I suggest you use the comment function below.
If you want to write a review – that would be more than fantastic (I know some of you, like Thomas Mathie, do great reviews)! I’d like to ask to postpone publishing the review until December 12th (that’s when the proper release will take place, remember? 121212!).
Also if you know someone who should have this prerelease (like: I’d more than welcome additional reviewers!) – send me an email, and I’ll give them a d/l code.
3. What I really want from you…
Enjoy the album! And be proud of yourselves! You’re all part either of this #secretalbum project or of my (very tiny) fan base, so in a way, you’re all part of this becoming what it is – a rather odd, but still accessible, and most of all beautiful album! Thanks so much!
