Skimmed this, chiming in.
I gave Brandon the OK to re-start this to eventually give this project a "real" release. Not an "OCR" release.
I've never intended for any of my projects to be OCR official because I personally believe it imposes too many restrictions and requirements. I'm not saying OCR projects are bad, it's just not how I do them on my own.
If Brandon wants to open this up to new mixes, get new tracks, and get a good sized (30 songs give or take) release and give it a proper release chock full of artwork and ID3 tags and disc numbers, rock on.
He even mentioned he wanted to do the massive medley that was originally what sunk my project.
I am behind this getting a real release.
I am NOT behind this becoming an official OCR project.
Again, no slight to OCR at all, you are all my homeslices, but I'm just not an official OCR-project kinda guy.
Technically, I gave him the OK to do what he pleased with the project as long as he were able to secure permission from the artists themselves to use each track. I encouraged him to get every track possible from the initial release, but I KNOW he won't be able to get Zeratul's track. Everything else should be fair game as long as he drops emails, asks nice and so on and so forth. I helped him get permission from a few people and hooked him up with some contact info for others.
Ball is 100% in his court to do what he wishes with this.
If he decides to make this an "OFFICIAL OCR" remix project, I really can't stop him from doing it, but I just want it to be known that that was never my intent. I fully support giving the project a real release that I wasn't happy giving myself, though.
Anywho, my thoughts on the matter.
If anybody has any questions or concerns about it, feel free to email me (joecamnet at the gmails) and I'll gladly chats you up.
But again, my wishes aside, Brandon is in charge of things now. If he wants to drop every original track and release 30 tracks of him farting over the original GameCube audio files, I guess that'll be KK Setlist. Personally, I hope he does justice to what I couldn't finish.
Kinda worried to see mentions of him running a half dozen projects, but to each their own, right?
