      Hi AJ,

      CD & Tape will be released & sent out end of January to tape & CD backers. Vinyl depending workload vinyl factory. Test pressing is arriving end of January, and waiting times have gone up from six to fourteen weeks. They will give me the final delivery date once I give my OK for the quality of the testpressing.

      Yo! I seem to have lost the email/can't find the update where you've mentioned when the 12" Vinyl will be posted. Sometime in January wasn't it?

      Cheers.

    13. Craig Grannell on December 17

      Do you have album artwork available? There's nothing embedded in the MP3s, nor in the download archives. (Just started listening!)

    14. Koen De Brabander 2-time creator on December 17

      Thanks, I'm sure we'll work this out, I might have misread the description.

    26. Koen De Brabander 2-time creator on September 8

      Well, I thought the description of what to expect was quite clear t.b.h.:

      "The 1980s were a very unique decade when we're talking about music. The synthesizer reached its adult years, and record producers started seeing it as a real instrument. Synthpop bands such as Depeche Mode, Eurythmics, The Pet Shop Boys, Duran Duran, etc. were very popular, using mainly synthesizers to create their music.

      In that same decade the gaming industry reached its adult age as well. Music was a very important part of experiencing gameplay, and one home computer stood out because of its unique synthesizer chip: the C64. The use of the hardware SID chip resulted in sounds and music never heard before.

      Hey... Why not combine both?"

      Having said that, If you are unhappy, get in touch via PM and we'll sort this out.

      Kind regards,

      Koen

      I know, but I would love to see the project would become more like the demo. Everything is vocal, except the bonus (cd2 and digital), tape and vinyls are vocal, whilst the demo is not vocal, it only has some samples in it.

    28. Koen De Brabander 2-time creator on September 8

      @Dj Koelkast: a full instrumental version will be on CD2 and digital.

      So I pledged this campaign because I liked the Navigator Infiltrator demo. It has some vocal samples, which is fine with me, but now it seems like this is an almost completely vocal (sung) album :-( If I'd known before...

    32. Koen De Brabander 2-time creator on September 8

      New update has been posted! 7" will feature 4 instead of 2 exclusive songs, one of them will be a haunting SID influenced version of The Cure's La Ment.

      Good to hear! Indeed it seems update alert e-mails sometimes end up in the spam folders. Best to check the updates here from time to time. Next update half september. Cheers!

    34. Graham Raddings on August 16

      Edit:

      Apols can see updates now. Impressed and makes my new investment in a record player worth every penny!

    35. Graham Raddings on August 16

      Never did get that release did we. I'm sensing bad vibes here now. Hope I'm wrong, I even got a new player for this!

    36. Koen De Brabander 2-time creator on July 25, 2017

      We are at work in the studio and will be happy to release a new song later this week. #workingbehindthescenses

    37. Graham Raddings on July 25, 2017

      Any update on this project, seems to have dropped off the Earth!

    38. Koen De Brabander 2-time creator on June 18, 2017

      Coming up this week!

    39. Weblaus on June 18, 2017

      So... it's been seven weeks since the campaign was funded successfully. I believe it's not unreasonable to think that by now, maybe at least a tiny update on how things are coming along would be in order?

    40. Alex Goldblat on April 30, 2017

      Congratulations for the funding the project. can't wait to see the result!

      Kind of confused on what exactly a cd digipack is. Is it a physical cd or digital?

    44. Koen De Brabander 2-time creator on April 28, 2017

      Cheers Metalmantr!

      Eight to ten tracks for SID Waves + bonustracks.

      Thnx for your support!!

      This sounds awesome! Pledged! I am curious, do we know how many tracks might be on the album? Thanks!

    46. Koen De Brabander 2-time creator on April 19, 2017

      I was wondering where you were, dear Seppo. Started missing you!!
