Well, I've been having a lot of problems with my DAW lately but that didn't stop me from getting in on the Black Friday software specials. I bought the Garritan CFX Concert Grand, which ships on a thumb drive. I also bought all the inexpensive Embertone wind instruments that were 40 percent off. I also picked up Cinematic Strings for $319. I've always wanted that one but it was $500 until recently. I wanted a few more but I had a $600 limit.
Also, I decided that trying to use two computers over a LAN was getting too complicated so I auctioned the Mac Mini off on eBay. It was my first auction or sale on the site. Apple discontinued offering a quad-core option on the Mac Mini and mine was the fastest model with a Fusion drive and 2 years of Applecare left. They are highly prized by geeks and serious users. They go in minutes if not seconds at the Apple Store refurb section now. I ended up selling mine for $1580.80, which was $100 more than I had into it. eBay and PayPal take their pound of flesh but I still did really well for a year old computer. A real fluke!
It looks like I'm going to have to learn a new DAW. The one I've been using keeps stalling for unknown reasons and pthe file also goes bad. The developer has soured on Apple so they are mainly working on the Windows version and not much on the Mac side. So no 64-bit ever on OSX.
I bought Logic Pro X last spring and I'm starting to learn it. I just ordered a 550 page instructional book for Logic Pro X which got good reviews. Oh boy!
