    I have a couple of those tracks. one is called "%%%%%%%%%%%%%&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&@@@@@@@@@@@@@%%%%%%%%%%%%"

    I didnt buy it tho, i got it for free off another web site.

    Its a really interesting concept however. Its like FUTURE music.

    if you dont mind me asking, which site did you get it from?

    actually, if there were some layers (i.e. mixing some of the existing tracks) to get some more depth, it could be quite nice.

    Hmm, I have noticed that printers are really quite musical...The music is often frustrating because the more of it there is, the longer you have to wait.

    But this IS an interesting concept that I'd be willing to check out...For free.

    good idea. maybe ill pull them into Garage Band like everyone did with the Howard Dean Scream. ;)

    i put 3 of those dot matrix songs on my ipod. after 3 secs i skip them. they just needs more.

    someone submitted a track off this album to DailyTunes a while back, and I refused to post it thinking it was a joke, like the person who submitted a track from the fart album. Agreed, it's different, but not in a good way. This album is a prime example of a middle-aged person living in mom's basement and collecting computer parts and recording equipment. Now he has an outlet for selling the 'songs' to fund his growing collection. :D

    ha! i actually bought this cd off itunes a few months ago. could do with some more sequencing and layering. but what it is great for is sampling. i took one of the ink cartridge hitting the side of the caseing sounds and processed it into a kick drum. heres a rough mix.

    very cool. what mixing software did you use? :)
  12. macrumors newbie

    i use logic pro, and various other stuff (mpc's, synths, etc)

    Well, at least yours is ... um ... musical.

    Neither is exactly in my tastes, though I could imagine a dot-matrix "song" that might be interesting in the way trained seals playing bike horns is interesting.
