After a year of doing no composition (and with only 1 piece as real evidence that anything got done), I’m resurrecting the keyboard, VSTs, the USB interface. It was all complicated a bit by the fact that I have moved to another laptop… but not too much. I was concerned at first that Windows 10 does not support music and latency etc. as 8.1 bit, but I think that is down to the laptop speaker… which I don’t particularly care about.
Although this is only a bar or 2, I got there by using the LesPaul section from my ProDimension pro VST… which is a lot of VST for the £9 or so I paid on offer.
