There is. That's why there's only a video for the new song, because the rest of them are not ready and I don't want to release MP3s until it's structured together. It's going to be another themed album, trying to tell a story through the music. I'm just slowly pecking at it right now, but I've recently been wanting to get a new one complete.

The 24th of March (2 days) is the one year anniversary of publishing the album, might be cool to have something new come out after the year mark, although it'll be at least a month or two.

Once I do that, I'm pondering putting my MT-32 to some use in DOS. See if I can't get a good sequencing program over there and mess around with a new sound, maybe make a new guide... Although nobody has an MT-32 so I'd be speaking to myself mostly. haha

Ah, but you never know. It might inspire some folks to go hunt one down or pull it out of the attic. It's a fairly highly sought after piece of retro MIDI synth kit, right?

The new album - do you envision it to be more an EP length, or a full-on album again like last time?

LP. Go big or go home. 40 minutes minimum.

The MT-32 is very sought after, I've made two videos on it, both of which performed better than the Amiga music guide. Of course part 1 is also my most disliked video ever, as well as one of the most liked... lol.... But I'm certain it's because in the first minute of the video I told everyone that their adlib FM music sucks about 10 times. :D I wouldn't be making a video on the MT-32 if I thought Adlib was any good, and they wouldn't be watching it either.

Truth hurts. But it also goes to show you that the people watching it don't actually have the thing, they just want to learn about it. No other reason to dislike my guides other than not liking me, because they always get the job done.

- My Amiga music video was an effort to do it the "right" way in my mind. Part 2 of the MT-32 stuff had me messing around on a keyboard, going through all the instruments... Which was really fun... But the Amiga inspired me to make a full album. Do the guide, and then go all the way, make something worth its weight on the internet, something truly creative, something nobody else could ever copy, because people have copied my MT-32 stuff I'm pretty sure. Making an album on the MT-32 along with a special video would be the way I wish it would have been in the first place... Of course the MT-32 didn't originally inspire me to do such a thing, it was the Amiga that did that.

An MT-32 definitely is on my list. As is an Apple PowerCD.

... When and if my Amiga and my C64 are finished. Too many things going on ...
