C64Audio Kickstarter Status Page
Last update: 1st July, 2020
Welcome to the Kickstarter status page: a one-stop-shop for seeing what status our various Kickstarters are at, since many of them have multiple albums.
A note on digital file delivery
"Digital files? What digital files? Why did no one tell me?"
All digital files released in our Kickstarters are put into a permanent file area for that Kickstarter on Google Drive. A link to that area is usually given to backers through the Kickstarter messaging system. Messages sent that way usually show up in your regular email inbox, but sometimes get spam-killed.
If you've received nothing, then log into Kickstarter.com, click in the top right on your avatar, then click on "Messages". You will probably have messages there with links on. Or click here.
C64Audio.com and SendOwl: orders through C64Audio.com generate a link to the same file area through SendOwl: when new stuff is uploaded, I sent out an update through SendOwl. Basically: whitelist SendOwl.com!
NOTE: Once you have visited the file area once, it will show up in your "Shared With Me" menu in Google Drive. This means you don't have to worry about retrieving the link via Kickstarter or SendOwl.
Summary: Double album of orchestral remixes played by the Czech Studio orchestra. Not to be confused with "8-Bit Symphony Box Set", which is renders of the same tunes, plus a lot of other stuff.

|Blu-Ray ISO||In preparation by Lee Bolton of Elerby Studios from gameplay videos intercut with live orchestral footage.|

We were unaware of how much work score correction and music prep would be when the Kickstarter was financed.|

|Physical Box-sets||Dispatch expected to start in August 2020|
|Rob Hubbard Reference Manual book (digital/physical)||Material 80% finished but needs editing and structuring. The 8-Bit Symphony Pro recordings in Prague represent the end of the book timeline/narrative, as they represent the pinnacle of a very long career. No ETA, there's just too much work still to do, but it's being prioritised. The book will ship separately to everything else.|
|Rob's Life digital download (game)||Finished and released.|
|Rob's Life signed cartridge||Production started.|
|Mugs, disks, etc.||Will be shipped with box-sets, expected dispatch August 2020, may be later with signed tuings.|
|Hubbard '80 Vinyls/Cassettes||Vinyl: by end of year, since vinyl timelines are very laggy. Cassette: company we did quote with doesn't exist any more, trying to source other supplies.|
In progress, nothing released yet. ETA: December. Jarle has finished most tracks.
