All levels of the 2004 thru 2019 conventions are available.
The 2003 convention has most tips available but some Advanced tips are missing.
Please do NOT make and distribute copies of this material. Copyright issues
aside, proceeds go to help support future AACE dances. This material is
being made available to the square dance community at a very reasonable
price. Please purchase legitimate copies for your tape groups, and help
support future AACE dances!
Can I really order any tips I want? Can I select the sessions, callers, etc.?
Yes! Since all master recordings were done digitally on computer,
I can easily select the tips to copy. Cassette tapes are recorded directly
off the computer. Copying MP3 files is even easier.
Why are the MP3 files so much cheaper than the cassette tapes?
Because the media (blank CD's) is so incredibly cheap (the postage costs
more than the CD). Burning MP3 files onto a CD is also MUCH faster than
recording cassette tapes.
How many MP3 files will fit on one CD?
About 300, more or less (compared to 8 tips on a cassette). The entire
AACE weekend (all levels) fits easily on 2 CD's with room to spare.
Why aren't all the California (AACE 2003) A2 tips available?
Because I had only 5 computers for recording, and there were 6 halls.
I couldn't record A2 while C4 was in session. And I didn't always have
time to move the computer between the halls. But I am getting more
computers for future dances.
What about minidisc (MD) media? Why isn't it available?
If there is enough demand, I will purchase an MD recorder and make
MD's available. I just don't have one right now.
