hey kidsmoke...yes it is in

hey kidsmoke...yes it is in fact all here. I just saw the one disc and thought the rest were missing in the mail perhaps. After inserting the disc into my drive everything is in fact coded onto the disc : )

I will send the disc your way as soon as i finish the transfer to my machine.

I think so..

I only got 1 disc, it's the shn files on dvd, guess the wav files didn't get reseeded. I can't decode the shn files right now, so I'm just hoping it's all there and all good.
