ok, thanks for the tip, Icit... getting it all together right now, may start tonight... just double checking that all my files/data are backed up... trying to find install discs for all the software I want to re-load... deciding what to jettison...

I have a band that played in Gold Coast in 07, Coolum the following year... it was funny both times, the Saturday right around Jan 26, which I had no idea going in... I had to ask, do they always drink like this, party by the thousand in the afternoon, and yell oy oy oy! so much... but the locals clued me in, what the party was all about... went to Byron bay, a great day that was... what I remember of it...

cheers!

Pro Tools may be something to avoid too, if it is a tweaking tool.

Glad to hear you're running well!

no worries mates... Pro Tools is a digital audio workstation platform for Microsoft Windows and Mac OS X operating systems, by Avid Technology. It is widely used by professionals throughout the audio industries for recording and editing in music production, film scoring, film and television post production, musical notation and MIDI sequencing. Much of pop music these days is recorded/produced using ProTools, on MUCH larger systems though...

I'm trying to record music demo's. It's the reason this PC exists at all, pretty much. Thanks for the concern though gents, your good intentions are appreciated.
