Machinae Supremacy has not left my playlist since the start of this year... I guess my love of the music is boardering on unhealthy obsession... YAY!
I really want to get my hands on the album only songs and did not find much information I'd consider to be acurate while searching the forums (couldn't find a straight forward yes or no on anything...), so I joined to ask some questions of my own.

(Yes I am aware of the fact I could have missed something obvious while searching the forums before joining)

---

Does the band have plans to, or will the band ever offer the option of buying downloadable versions of their albums? (FLAC would kick many an arse)

How many copies of Deus Ex Machinae are available to be sold when the store opens? (I think I remember reading "~300" somewhere.)

How many copies of the underground edition of Redeemer will there be? (I may have seen a figure somewhere, could not find it again.)

What what will the prices be, either definite or estimated, for the above mentioned?

Are you able to ship to Australia? (I found an answer in the forums that was neither a yes or a no...)

What would you estimate postage costs to be?

What methods of payment will be accepted when the store opens?

---

If any of these questions have already been answered clearly elsewhere, a link to the relevant topic will do just fine as an answer.

Will you love me any less, if I hurt you any more?

Yeah, as far as we know, you'll be able to get the the CD shipped to anywhere in the world (likely through air mail), and payment will be be credit/debit card. Plus, I believe you are right about there being ~300 remaining DXMs.

As for the other questions, only the band knows, so we can't help ya there until Robert comes on.

Thank you both for the answers so far.

I hope Robert can answer the rest of my questions and possibly go into a little further detail on what has already been answered, if it so happens that there is more to know.

if you need snappier answers, try talking to rob in the irc channel (address is on the website somewhere)

Very good questions. I was about to ask them myself. Especially about price, since there are so few middle hands and most goes to Machinae themselves will it be a slightly lower price than a cd from a big label where like 1% goes to the artist?

So... how often does Robert even check the forums? Do I need to go to the IRC channel to get his attention and then convince him to come here to answer the questions? (rather than ask them again...)

He's around here somewhere. Lurking in the General topics perhaps.


(Oops, maybe I should answer... Don't have time now... I'll be back.)

The image I shrunk and went overboard with the sharpening filter on is:

:( ...and the one I was going to use that didn't seem to like being shrunk is:

When these questions get answered perhaps this thread/topic should be made a sticky, as most of these questions are asking what most of us want to know at this point in time (and are all in the one place).

It'd be good to have these questions stickied but, hopefully, the Machinae shop will be opening in the next week and all of our questions will be answered :)

Oh, and TY! :D
