Happy New Years

Well, I've been working on several things while getting used to my new Apple iBook. One of the things that I've been trying to get a handle on is the new music set up that I have. I got a USB Midi Controller by Evolution that can be used in Garageband to control software instruments. The neatest thing for me is how much the instruments sound like what they're supposed to be. The Grand Piano is one instrument that just blew me away. I mean I guess it shouldn't because it's just a piano but the realism and clarity that comes from the instrument sounds as if I'm playing a Stienway or something. Another soft synth that I found was one of the rock organs. It sounds like a multi-thousand dollar rock organ that Led Zeppelin might have used. Here's a link to that song... click here

I got Microsoft Word 2004 for Mac which I'll be using to write my next book. I'm not altogether sure what I'm gonna call it or even what it's gonna be about but I'll have the right tools to write it, that's for sure. Alright, I think that's all for now...
