I was on a mailing list once that did this maybe about ten years ago....

It took a long time to do, and a huge amount of effort to organize, but the overall result was worth it. There was some talk about doing it again, but I believe at the time the effort was just too much.

Another list I was on tried the same thing about three or four years ago and, as far as I know, it never got past people posting their tracks on an FTP site.

So its a good idea, but those organizing it have to be behind it 100% and there has to be enough interest from the forum in purchasing it.

techically i think it should be very simple:
- ppl will send their tunes to someone via yousendit, mail, msn or something
- someone (or a few reliable ppl) will download them, make a selection and mix them
- someone will host the mix so that everyone on forum can download it(for free of course!)

but, honestly - i don't think we have enough producers willing to do this, yet

dubway-

The two lists I was on were concerned with full on commercial release CDs.

That the first group could acheive it ten years ago when most of us were still on dial-up and CD burners were quite expensive was quite amazing. As it turns out, it was a properly pressed CD with professionally done artwork.

The second group should have had an easier time with the lower cost of recordable CDs and drives; essentially I think too many people submitted tracks.

maybe choose a selection, and have multiple people mix it---and decide on which mix to use.

idd if a few of us mix it would be cool, but maybe, you're the best person to decide what actually ends up on the mix-cd, coz it's still your forum

I don't produce - but I'd sure be keen to the the packaging artwork if you were to release it as a CD. (ie. not just a DL)

But yeah, cool idea - it's just a bit of organisation and collaboration that is needed to make it happen.

I'm sure one of the label owners that frequent this forum could offer some advice on CD production and distribution.

Make it happen guys!

this looks great..
BUT we have only 5 producers still.. and if you ask me - we need 20.
don't get me wrong but if we don't have 20 good tunes - we can make a perfect selection, mix, artwork and promotion - but cd will still be shit..
