If you visit the studio, also enjoy Mary's paintings while being sure to mention this offer, because we post this stuff online and totally forget about it, so a few days ago, somebody paid for a CD when they actually qualified for the free upgrade.

* NOTE:  All Mp3 files are my fully owned copyrighted works; but, in most cases I'm not likely to track you down if you grab them.

Be nice and don't sell them yourself or pass them around as your own.

In November of 2006 Mary and I were with a young friend in a book store, and we thought they would enjoy going to the music department, because we almost never saw them without their ear-bud music playing.

However, when we got to the music department they seemed to be distinctly underwhelmed—picking up a CD player and saying, "Wow! I didn't know they even made these things anymore."

By December of the same year a somewhat older person was in the Endico Watercolor Studio.

Mary told them about our younger friend and the apparent demise of CD's.

The person looked down lovingly at their newly purchased Factory Preset CD and said, "Well, some of us still like to own something!"

However, there is a proven group of people who will never get to hear Factory Preset on CD and certainly never get to enjoy the original cassette tape version, but they still deserve a chance to hear it, so the Mp3 versions are posted here for download.

Currently the CD version remains the audiophile published version.

It would be kind of you to send a note to Bob via the QUERY FORM and mention you are downloading files, so he can be reminded that actual people (not just bots) are having their way with this website. Also use that form to report any problems with the files.

Otherwise enjoy listening here to what was historically the first ever midi music of all electronic, all original tunes produced using PC based MIDI software.


Little Help for My Friends
