When the community came up with the idea of a compilation album to generate charity donations in light of the terrible disaster in Haiti, einpuls started gathering tracks for the album and the monome community answered swiftly with more than 25 tracks being submitted in just a couple of days.

The minimum price for the compilation has been set to $1 with no upper limit. Every penny helps, so please donate what you can.
