Welcome to the new BlahBlahCafe!

We have migrated to a new server. As with every migration, some things might have been lost in translation (at least, that's my experience in software development). The main problem is logging in into the boards. These could be caused by several reasons:

- Your browser cache & cookies need to be cleared because we moved to a new server. If you get the error message whilst logging: "The submitted form was invalid. Try submitting again.", you need to clear your cache & cookies. You can find a "Delete cookies" option at the bottom of this page.

- There is also a chance that your password is not correctly converted to the new system. This is a known bug with migrating the system. The only solution is to request a new password, there's a link on the form that will send an email to you to create a new password. If that fails, I can set a password for you, you can contact us at the "Contact us" link at the bottom of the page.

On the back of the lid, there's a certificate with a signature of JMJ and a number.

Just to make sure - you are talking about the back of the lid of the first box, shipped last year? Please don't tell me, you received the content of the second part in an extra box with lid... :|

Something different: What is so important / interesting on the DR values. I'm not very familiar with those kind of things, but understood it is 'dynamic range'. But what does it actually tell someone / whats the benefit? Does it work for wav files only?

Thanks for enlighting me :)

Cheers

No lid in my shipment. I only got the vinyls, the finger prints, the usb stick, CD, poster and liner notes. They were not inside a box.

Are you talking about the lid of vol 1, which came in a box, and where I'm obviously supposed to put the contents of vol 2?

No one did, we all just received the two vinyl's, posters/fingerprints, CD and USB packed together. You're apparently supposed to insert in all into the box you received last year. Despite showing a photo that we'd apparently receive a second box, this is seemingly not the case.

No it works on pretty much all audio files. But the Dynamic Range shows how much space there is between the highest highs and the lowest lows in terms of volume (and the average of course). The more space there is, the better. Although the range of course largely also depends on what the genre is. Trance for example usually has an lower average because that's simply how the music works. This YouTube Video, while not going into the technical details shows very clearly what it is and how it effects music.

It seems you're supposed to insert it into the boxset of the first album. I've done so and it does fit rather snug in there.

Most of the track stories are from E1, IIRC the remixes were horrible (aside from Rising Star(dust)) and I'm not really one of those people who dig "Electronic Press Kits". Guess I got lucky when I cancelled my E2 preorder and just bought the CD instead...

Quite the shame.

Now where's that Paris La Defense inedité BluRay?

:punch:
It's not supposed to be a box on its own. What's in the Part 2 shipment is supposed to be placed in the Part 1 box. There was an extra CD slot for the Pt. 2 CD, a slot for the Pt. 2 thumb drive.

There was never supposed to be a box for Part 2. The box that came with Part 1 is designed to hold all the contents for both volumes

Electronica Deluxe Fan Box

Elf, underneath the lid of the original Part 1 box is where the JMJ signed and numbered certificate is supposed to be ...

@ Christophe, re: What You Want 7"

I received the single a couple of days ago. There is no difference between the US release and the EU release: clear vinyl, one sided, made in Germany. Which makes sense after JMJ said it was a 1,000 copy release worldwide.

By the way, does anyone know the number of copies for the Exit 7"? It was released on Record Store Day in several countries in Europe, so it was limited for sure, but since release day of Electronica 2 it's been available in the US on Amazon (and sold by Amazon) and it's the same record, and they still have it in stock. Granted, it's for hard-core fans and completists only, but I'm surprised there are still copies around if it was just a small batch of singles...

So, this is a bit confusing. A couple of weeks ago, I got an email from MyPlayDirect reminding me that I hadn't ordered Fan Box 2. I prompty ordered it (May 19) and it had an estimated ship date of May 25.

However.... I haven't received the item, and today when I visit the site to check on my order, the site has completely changed to PopMarket.com and they have no record of my order?!?!7

Can anyone please advise?

Email the new website, they should know the details of your order. The old site has merged with a new one and all old information you had access to has been completely removed.
