I got up today and went downstairs to get some breakfast. I got on with some work as usual and then at around 1pm Sooz had some problems with some possible spyware. I took a look and it seemed to have taken the net connection down. I unplugged the cable modem and lo and behold, […]

Cubase SX 2.0 arrived today and wonderous it is too. It really is a superb piece of software. What makes it shine however is the Groove Agent VST plugin that I have been using with it. This plugin is simply amazing. I can’t wait for you to hear the music I am writing at the […]
