That was a really nice musical journey, Don.... very tasteful music to welcome in my morning here in Australia. I love the 12/8, 50s rock feel. All the best, Noel

Someone suggested that I "really aced the Santo & Johnny vibe." That certainly was unintentional but I had played with a young fellow in Minnesota who literally "owned" S&J on a pedal steel. Your encouraging comments have made my day/week/month/year/decade. Thanks ever so much.

1920 resolution has worked fine for me once I get things how I want them and save the file. For the hidden window; trying to mouse click when this happens has been futile for me historically (I haven't seen this behavior in years though), however, going from memory, using the minimize/restore shortcuts worked more often than not when this ocurred. Worth trying. /If the beads don't work maybe try a dream catcher

Man, does this ever capture the best of 80's rock. And for us there's Springsteen and Petty and not much more The image rich lyric is absolutely standout. Old write or not you got it going here! Great listen... J&B

Screen resolution is 1920x1080 I attribute my crashes to generating and auditioning too many realtracks for a 32bit system, no vst's loaded. Yes Iam using asio. Long ago I started mixing in sonar 64bit for the extra available memory. When the realtracks window opens behind the tracks view, (Not often enough for me to pull out my hair) mouse clicking on the tracks view gives me the microsoft ding ding bell sound you can't do this. Not sure if I tried to resize window or just clicked on the clos

Thanks for sharing this link. I like the way this guy both explains and demonstrates things and have subscribed to his YouTube channel. I've got a feeling this VST will make life easier for me once I get a handle on using it. I don't know if you noticed but the copyright for the VST is 2015 so it has actually been around for awhile. I did a quick overview of the VST user manual and it is a well written and comprehensive manual.

Ha! Love it! Super catchy, well written and produced song that you can't help but smile about. The Aho/A Whole was brilliant! Great job David! You were VERY smart not to make this song about "A Hoe." We don't need a song about a tilling and/or raking implement. For what it's worth, the chorus is stuck in my head now. Congrats on your anniversary btw!

Anyway to your questions. No need for mp3's as long as you have a sound system to plug the output of your computer into. NOT your Roland guitar amp. That's for guitars only, it sounds like crap if you try to play a CD through it for example. Like lots of old guys are you a stereo person, d
