Is it so much better than Gimp? I've been trying to figure that one out -- it's a little complicated, but it's free...!

Bojko gave feedback to Ryan Toth for “please”:
the colors are awesome and strikingly beautiful, the noose adds a dark contrast, but the colors win out, very interesting not quite sure what it makes me feel....which is even cooler...nice, good job

thank you, i personally hate the photo because it is a piece that (to me) shows the hurt of one of my young family members. where the grass is it represents being curious and child like, it has a picture of that family member in the grass. just really hard to see. then the noose boldly in sight shows how clearly doomed he is even though he has no clue.

RustyRedRecords gave feedback to Victoria Robinson for “Bloody Cape”:
That's a pretty innovative idea. I'm not really one for art only because I don't usually understand most of it. I'm not exactly sure how to react to this piece in particular. Maybe if you gave a longer description it would help some. I Like the idea behind the piece I think that in and of itself is brilliant. The best thing I think is to tell you how I feel when I look at this coupled with the title... Here's the result and I'm probably way off so try not to laugh to hard but... When i read the word BLOODY I automatically question why it wasn't painted red. When you add CAPE to that i automatically think of a superhero of sorts. Because of what the piece actually is (used paper towels) it makes it become almost like a personal history of yours being that each piece of paper has its own individual story. When you add all three elements together I come up with in my mind that this is the end result of going to war with a palette armed with paint, a brush, and your ideas. This piece being the end result of a long fought mental war it has all the pieces of used paper towels that you used to clean your brush on other projects (wars) you fought. Similar to the Bloody cape of say superman after he goes to war with one of his enemies. I don't know but that's how this makes me feel when i look at it. I hope I didn't offend you because like I said before I'm not very much of an art person. Anyway nice work. Respect.

RustyRedRecords gave feedback to Interpret for “Reprecussions”:
this instrumental is beautiful bro. nice work. respect. the kid that spits the third verse has a SICK flow.

this is a nice track bro. the only thing i would have done differently is put some reverb on the piano or let the notes echo out. also double the notes at an octave lower to give it a fuller sound all around.

Kode of Bliss gave feedback to B34R for “Passage”:
Man the intro sounds a lot like my Twilight Flight (Raptor Mix) piece, so my guess is you are using Sytrus in the piece. First off, it is a bit short. I would add some more instruments as in places it sounds minimal. Overall it was a pleasant listen. So what DAW are you using?, my guess would be FLStudio.

Yeah, Right on the nail with your assumptions. This is when I first started and I haven't touched it since. Thanks!

The Middlemen gave feedback to The Airvents for “(deleted)”:
Hey dudes -- this is really good -- I think you're going from having fun in the garage in some of your earlier tunes to really kicking ass on this track.

I see Kelly B mentioned it, but I think the recording could be a little bit better. I've been doing recording for more than ten years, so I might be able to give you guys some tips. 1st, what DAW are you using? Garagband, Protools, Audacity?

Hey! thanks for the support. Its always appreciated. As for the DAW, we have been working with Audacity. I don't know much about the recording aspect of music, if anything at all, so any amounts of help we can get is perfect.

You're welcome. I use audacity sometimes, too. How big are your project files? If we can figure out a way to get them to me, and if it's OK, I'd like a crack at remixing/remastering. I think that I can help you guys -- I'm not looking for any credits or anything -- could use the practice working with other people's mixes, though...

Thanks, KB! It's a free download -- I like this recording -- lof-fi as it is...

On another note we just rolled out support for Flash games and applications. I know you're a programmer, but I don't know if you have any of your stuff ported to Flash, or if any friends do.

We'll be mentioning this in our next newsletter (probably October 30th) so it could be a nice boost for any early adopters, as we usually get a boost in traffic from newsletters, and a lot of attention for the new features we roll out. Commission-free sales too!

Thanks again,
