Technical Issues with Giving Away a few Terabytes of Free Software

Well, due to overwhelming response for the ZomBass 2 giveaway, Dropbox had a hissy fit and no longer wants to provide the hosting for the files.

Right now I’ve moved the files over to a Google Drive – so we’ll see how that long that lasts. If you download the files now by running through the check out process again, you’ll get the Google drive links. You may have to add .zip to the end of those files to get them to work.

Also, Tomislav Zlatic is working on mirroring the files on his awesome site, Bedroom Producers Blog, so we’ll have that mirror in addition to alleviate the demand!

Merry Christmas,

Alex
