Count me in for the Looper's CD along with the $100.00 to get it done.
There is a very good article on doing a project like this (CD over the
internet) in the latest Keyboard magazine - Janurary 1998. The article
describes the internet compilation CD "Giant Tracks." It ended up being
completed in a very professional way, many people contributed their
talents and they did the web site thing with samples of each tune. There
is included a breakdown of costs and they actually sold enough CD's to
make a little profit. Anyways I'll check to see if this article is on the
Keyboard mag web site.
