Whats going on with Vai Tunes ?

#1 Post by tk777 » Tue May 04, 2010 7:17 am

Whats going on with Vai Tunes? The first track was very cool and then we were told there was going to be more, one every month. That was nearly 3 months ago and there is still no sign of the second track. I know Mr.Vai and the people that work for him are busy people and want everything to be done perfect but I'm sure his fans don't enjoy having promises made to them which cannot be kept.

Yeah, it's a bit disappointing...but I think they said something like "hopefully one new track each month"....
in reality it'll probably be more like every 2 to 3 months...I know the Vai camp handle most of these
things themselves and there's a lot that can slow down the releases...so after the multiple WTWTA dvd release issues
I'm not surprised by this at all.

Releasing a song can took a lot of time sometimes. Be patient :)

With ALL RESPECT to Steve, I get the vibe that with all the unfinished projects (Passion & Warfare -book, The Jewel Box, Real Illusions trilogy, VaiTunes + many others) Steve may easily get excited with his ideas and eventually doesn´t have the time to bring them into reality. Luckily he has the tendency to surprise us...

I can assure you that the VaiTunes scheme is alive - just you wait for The Moon and I, it is beautiful. I have also read that Steve has been working on track number 6. Just be patient!

The Jewel Box will be finished over time too, I'm sure, as will the trilogy.

The only one I doubt now is the Passion and Warfare book, but who needs that?! We already have the audio book!

Couldn't find it yet in itunes. Amazon had it, but their downloadstore is closed for the Netherlands. Preview was really nice though. Can't wait.

The song is on iTunes. Only, if I want to buy the "album" (song + booklet), I have to pay € 8,99. What the...? Only the song is € 0,99. Is this a mistake? How can this be solved? I'd like to have the booklet, but I'm not going to pay € 7,99 for it. This is about the Dutch iTunes store. Do other regions have the same issue?

The PDF booklet for "Without Me" is available on the VaiTunes page on vai.com, so maybe the booklets for the following songs will be available here, too. Maybe you could buy just the track on iTunes and then wait for Mikey to update the VaiTunes page.

I have the same problem, but am from the same region (Belgium). Having the pdf booklet as a free download on vai.com seems fair. iTunes are selling it for 0,50€ on Without Me, which is already too much considering they're more expensive than amazon on the track itself... And, if I'm correct, are overall the most leonine partner in digital distribution. Well.

I think the 8.99 was an iTunes issue. It's .99 Eurocents now. Go get it :)

Not was, i'm afraid. It still is. The seperate song is .99 cents, the whole album (song + digital booklet) 8.99. I already bought the song. Couldn't wait. Is there a way to get the booklet any other way? Legally that is.

By the way, the song is great.
