Three days later, I think I’ve finished installing all my software on the new computer — except for CakeWalk Pro 9 which, I think, doesn’t like Windows MX. Maybe I’ll try it again later. It took me a couple tries to get Vegas Audio to install properly.
That doesn’t seem to portend well for the reason I got a new computer — to be able to do decent audio recording. But maybe it’s just one of those keep-going-and-don’t-let-anything-stop-you things. I easily become discouraged far too easily, especially around my musical aspirations. But I keep going.
