Yes we really need computers. There aren't enough real audio engineers left and there aren't enough real talented musicians out there to make recordings without the magic of a CPU whether it's in a Mac/PC or stand alone DAW.

haha but it's all good reel to reel tape or DAW. Now when is some listening worthy music going to take the world by storm again? We're long long overdue!

You are quite right - thanks! I dunno how I got stuck in integer land.

Disregard.
You did have the most to say - did you not expect feedback?

Can we?

Call me old fashioned but dammit I love a great control room.
