You also have to understand that, I am a man of relatively humble means, I am not rich. So with that in mind if I decided to ditch the old gear what would I do with it? Sell it on eBay and I would get bloody sod all, pennies. So I will just be stubborn and bloody minded and vow to keep using the stuff 😅😉👍I think old technology is a waste of time if it ties a hand behind your back, but some of it still works pretty well - so why not keep using it? Some of course, was rubbish when new. Things like Philips laserdisc - it was pretty good technically, but nobody wanted to buy them. I had a digital recording system in the late 90s - Soundscape. I bought it because the BBC were using it locally. Dedicated cards for the PC - so I had the software and 16 tracks of digital in and out and it was really, really horrible. The software was the problem. The cards I carried on using for quite a while till there were no more drivers. Everyone understand windows and how you drag and drop, select things with mouse clicks and that really basic stuff. Soundscape did everything differently and it was just nasty to use. It was pretty reliable - but just totally non-intuitive. Cost a damn fortune too. Dumping it and carrying on with Cubase was the best thing I did.
