MM5 is now done. Full Album Downloads (and artwork) can be found here.

That was surprisingly fun. Took a couple hours and updated the: CD art covers, titles, tags, and some descriptions for the uploads. I have no idea why, just felt like it.
The CD covers are good in the project page, but a couple of them are still wrong in the ilst, even after refreshing. We'll see how long it takes for everything to catch up.
I never used tags, didn't bother. Since I opened up each one anyway, might as well - right?
Most description changes were adding the storylines to the Mother Machine tracks. It became much more clear to me that MM1 wasn't the only story project, MM3 and 4 are very much so as well. MM2 the exception.
It also dawns on me I should do a tribute track to Al Jourgensen and call it Surgical Mother Machine.

TL;DR - I started a Discord server, uploaded a bunch of samples I made for people to use, and want people to join and upload their samples for us to use. I think it could be fun to have a big room filled with people constantly collaborating and sending things back and forth (and talking, obviously).
Anyone who has talked to me about music for longer than a few brief moments knows I love tinkering. I'll sit and play with the same lines and pieces for quite a while. To that end, I caved and bought the Push 2 - it was on sale recently. I really wanted it anyway, so there you go. Since getting it, I find myself just crafting loops and samples instead of writing songs. I find myself splicing songs and creating new things. It's tremendous fun - for me.
Of course, I'll publish full pieces. I have a demo in the works right now, but it's just kind of disinteresting right now. I have this idea in my head about all these little snippets, I'm having with it. Push makes it easier, and funner, to make these various ideas I have kicking around. Live 9 is good, and Komplete 9 works just fine with it as well (albiet not quite as seamless, but we're talking about NI plugins in an Ableton environment - it's ok).
I could, and probably will, take all these clips and use them in future projects. That's more or less what I've been doing anyway. However, I think I'd like to make things available for everyone. There are technologies - like Discord - that make life easy for that. It's free, and easy. Join the server, drag and drop - done.
In my head, I'm imagining people not only using it as a real-time chatroom but a consistent place to exchange demos to listen to/critique and samples to collab with. An environment with which to engage more. I've collaborated with several people and file transfers have been annoying. This could make life simpler.
Alternately, I could just be having delusions of grandeur. It wouldn't be the first time.
