One big reason begins with what could arguably be a confession: I am currently a student. That being said, while I'm taking only two classes for this final semester, those classes alone drain a lot of my time.
Another reason is correlated to my last post about my new Emax II. I spent at least a week trying to find a way to effectively abandon the Zip drive that came with it, a type of storage known for its high failure rate. These attempts even went as far as looking into the science of how floppy disks worked and why I couldn't effectively port Emax-formatted floppies to my computer. While I have since come upon an effective solution, it's somewhat inconvenient: while the Emax can read from CD-ROM's, it cannot write to them simply because CD's are a type of media that needs to be burned, so any sounds I'd wish to use on the Emax would need to be premade on my computer, and then burned to a CD.
Thankfully, I might have more time on my hands later than I originally anticipated from my offline life, though the reasons for this don't matter much. As an additional consolation, Scythe, a project headed by fellow synthwaver and soundtrack nut Jon of the Shred, is nearing release, featuring a collab track between me and him. This track will be available for listening soon, and the preorder is already available on Bandcamp.
Thank you all for your patience.
