Despite this annoying ad campaign, I’m treating myself to a new computer. It’s a Dell Dimension 4400 (P4 1.7Ghz; 512M; 40Gb). It’ll come with Windows XP, but I’m uncertain that’s what I’ll keep on it. I want to run Cakewalk’s Pro Audio 9 and I don’t think it will run on XP (blow me). I’m interesting in recording some of the songs I’ve written. I also want to trying to become better at sequencing. We’ll see. All this talk of Peter Gabriel has led me to listen to his catalog with a fresh ear. Reminds me why I learned to play in the first place.
