Ah, regrets.. I've had a few.
I regret deleting all my music software!
So here I am, re-downloading, re-installing, and re-authorizing. Ugh. For HOURS.
The one good thing, such as it is, is that this has made me focus on what I'm going to actually use as compared to what I grab on the off-chance I might use it someday. So, my stable of instruments is small, my effects few and professional-level, and the best of my loop libraries will be ready to hand.
Not having over a dozen software synthesizers and over 100 (!!) software effects will help me spend more time composing and less time wondering hich flavor of reverb/ech/phaser/etc. I really want for a track, which frankly was a productivity killer.
Jury is still out on a physical instrument.. there's no finger pain typing now, but I haven't tried long-term pressure to them so I need to buy a finger exerciser and see where that goes.
Regardless, the Synthetic Aurality music project rises from the ashes!
Scrivener and Jutoh are both installed, so I can get back to my writing, and I've copied all my music to this machine so I have tunes.
