Update #20

The End is Near - In a Good Way

Good news. Editing is complete, we are now mixing the music and adding finishing touches. I am spending all of my time listening through everything very carefully. We are close enough that I'm going to be submitting an order for t-shirts this week, and begin preparing everyone's gifts. 

I will send an update before everything is mailed, in the meantime I am figuring out a way to get the original ProTool files online so donors can download them and mix things themselves

Thanks for your patience and for sticking through this with me, hopefully you will all be as pleased as I am with the final result.

      Wow, it's been a long road since i first heard about Kickstarter via this project back in 2010. Happy to see it still going well!

      @Grant I did, it's on his server and I've asked him today the best way to link to it publicly.

      Yes, ultimately I should try to discuss the results in a way that is helpful to future kickstarter-ers. The amount of music we aimed for was ambitious and very challenging, but ultimately it was worth it.

      I'm beting this project turned out to be about 1.000 times harder to complete than you originally hoped. :) I'm glad you were willing to see it through.

      About 500gb+, too much for my home bandwidth. I'm looking at a few options though which should work

      How big are the original protools files, out of curiosity? Maybe you could set up and seed a torrent for them?
