Woes and me

Due to a misunderstanding on my part of how the site configuration worked, I accidentally deleted about half the files on the site. Sorry to anyone who tried to check out a song, only to get a "Page not found" error. I've restored almost everything at this point and am working to get the few remaining files back in action. Sorry again,and I promise better backups in the future!

Vocoid on Myspace

We recently set up a Myspace page for Vocoid, so if you have a Myspace account, come be our friend!

We searched the myspace ranks for artists we liked, so if you're looking for more music, we'd recommend you check them out. Links to their projects can also be found under the Links page under the friends section. We hope that, after we're finished setting up the site, some of them will be interested in contributing new content.

We're also looking into some 3rd party solutions for digital distribution for Vocoid so new artists (and maybe some of the current ones as well) will be able to sell tracks here.

EOI updates

I've updated the EOI site with some new (old) content that was on the previous site. I added two live sets, one from the 2nd Annual Guerilla Music Fest, and the second from our show at "Under The Radar" in 26mix, SF. The 2ndAGM Fest release even includes some (oh so exciting) footage of EOI in action. Now you can (once again) hear and witness EOI, completely unedited (as opposed to mostly unedited from the album releases).
