Well being waaaaay waaaaaay older than dirt, my wife has finally talked me into to it.
With a tear in my eye this will be the last year of running my studio.
Ironically this has been my 2nd best year ever; financially speaking. —go figure.
We will be closing up just after Xmas time.
I want to thank all those in this great Cubase community for all your help
and suggestions etc etc over the years (you know what I mean)
Also want to thank all the mods and the ‘Powers That Be’ for maintaining this place.
I have alway felt at home and welcomed here.
It was also kool to have been made a mod. Tanx to all the other mod guys for that.
I started doing DAW work in Toronto in 1993 with Cubase 2.8 and Finalé and I have never looked back.
SMPTE time code laid onto one track of a 4 track Tascam anybody? Ha!
Outboard sound modules all over the place. MIDI jitters anyone? Ha!
Hell I even remember burning my 1st CD. Ha!
Well I finally ended up on Maui using Cubase 8.5
with everything ‘in da box’ and have never been happier.
I was able to buy a home here and put my daughter thru school all by using Cubase.
I can’t think of a better testament to the Cubase programme than that! Thanks Charlie.
In the future I will still ‘pop in’ here from time to time to check on
‘whaaaaaaat’s uaaaaaaaaaaaaap’ in Cubeland. It’s been one hell of a run.
You know what they say about what free advice is worth.
That being said. here goes:
