Don't be silly. It's 'F' of course :tongue:
So if I play three 'F's all at once...

Yep, that's it! 'The ace of spades, the ace of spades...' :D

At the risk of this sounding like my undergraduate days, will there be an extension?

An extension to the sacred deadline :shocked: :protest:

(Actually an extra day or two would be really handy, given that the synth I'd planned to use isn't here yet!)

Im ok with that but its really upto the organiser and how it fits in with his schedule.

The concept of a glass of free time over the Easter bank holiday is somewhat lost in the flood of lock down !

Guys - are we talking about a day or two? Or a week or so?

I'd be ok with moving it to the end of the Bank Holiday Monday if we all think that that will be enough time?

Thoughts?

Jon - deadlines are there to focus us. I usually start to focus a day or so before .... :D

OK - let's move it Monday. That way, we have something to look forward to for when we go back to work on Tuesday!

...right, I just got round to plugging mine in!

Think I need a break now.

(Well, it was quite stressful; troubleshooting ground loops, trying different interfaces, putting Firewire cables in upside-down...oops, still works fortunately. The ground loop issue means I'll have to sort out a separate laptop or something for control/sequencing, as I can't do it from the usual PC DAW. But I'll persevere. After a beer.)

Yo BJG - I got your submission via PM but can't respond back as you have yours turned off.

Can you please make that link downloadable? That way I can get the source file for it at the best possible quality for when I upload them all into the final playlist.

Thanks

Just a quick reminder : If you are submitting the track via SoundCloud, can you please make sure that you mark the track as downloadable so that I can grab it? Thanks

Nicely Drew. I have about a dozen already with at least a couple more due. Plus I have some 'bonus tracks' where people have submitted two tracks with the same synth, so I'm debating whether to put these in the main playlist, or do a secondary one for after the main set.

Lots of varying styles and at least one should raise a chuckle ;)
