Well, after 8 years of loyal and faithful service, the GTK Studio Computer has bid a sad farewell. And of course, this leaves something of a gap in the studio itself as it means no work can be done until a replacement is found. Which it has been.
A new modern computer will be taking over the duties of recording etc within the next week or so, but it comes at a cost - the Roland JV-2080 gave of itself so that GTK Studio could continue. I posted her off this morning to her new home with Radio Massacre International's Duncan Goddard - I know she will be happy there and live a very full and fruitful life. I will miss her.
But, life has to go and so, after two difficult goodbyes, I now await the new computer with much excitement. Having an Intel dual core processor, 8GB of memory and working in 64 bit will be a massive leap forward in terms of processing and ease of work flow for both music and photography.
