Before we get to the Kickstarter, a simple plea to all our loyal TFCog fans…
As many of you are aware, a major aspect of this website is the work that some of us have done piecing together tracks from the original G1 series. The tracks are for the most part great, but here and there, there are a few sound effects left in due to the fact that it is the best clip of that particular track available.
Recently, I have been contacted by Jim, who is an audio engineer and an audiophile who wants to see the cleanest version of these tracks available. As time goes on, it becomes less and less likely that we’re going to see an official release of the original Transformers G1 soundtrack.
So Jim has a proposition – he wants to clean all of these tracks up. However, removing SFX from music is no easy task. To do this, he needs to purchase professional software. The software retails for $1,200 typically, but he’s been able to get a deal for it for $650 for two weeks only.
To reach the goal of $650, he’s going to need your help. The best part is he isn’t asking for you to give him $650… He’s not asking for $250, or $100 or $50 or even $20. All he asks from you is $1 via Kickstarter. Of course, if you have more to donate, then you can donate as much as you want. If you’ve never used Kickstarter before, all you need is a credit card and you won’t be billed for this unless the goal is met in 15 days.
So, since I know all of love the music provided on this website, there should be no reason why we can’t make this goal.
G1 music. SFX free. Just think about it.
Update (08/22/14): A quick thank you to everyone who has supported this project thus far. It was a modest goal to begin with, but in only two days, the project has surpassed even its second stretch goal, more than doubling the original target. Needless to say, this Kickstarter was a humungous success. Jim is not looking for any more contributions.
