I think he has a Swiss pupil about to arrive.
I searched around for material that might be developable with Gilbert. There was more than I thought there would be. Maybe I will have to join You Send It if we are going to be swapping WAVs. I am gradually getting the hang of Kristal - not that it's all that tricky but the effects are parameterised in their own sweet way, especially the compressor. I think I may soon be embarking on a big editing job in that software. I worked up something that fell out of an experiment I made earlier this year with a trial copy of an inexpensive Sony DAW - which I decided not to buy. Then today re-reading about a related heavily discounted product I put in an order to Amazon. It has some interesting MIDI features and I have bought a MIDI/USB cable.
