Pantelis, I think La Fenice is a hidden gem - much more cozy than La Scala. That must have been an excellent performance! I won't be in Honfleur, but will be in the South of France in September if anyone's there?...
The Houses of Satie are very interesting, but don't miss out on the port and estuary of the Seine River for amazing landscape photography!
Thanks Sarah. I try to fool myself into thinking that winters are for working, and summers are for sailing, and travel. I am trying to squeeze music between the two.
Andreas, if you have WaveLab 6, don't bother with 7 - more menus to go through to do the same thing on certain functions. Version 6 is the best audio editing software! Leave it to the Germans to design something right! As for Logic Pro, I use it as a workstation to create ensemble music, and synthesize new sounds, and create new tracks. It's not so intuitive and easy to navigate like WaveLab for 2 track editing. However, I've got a new plug-in from Vienna Sound Library - Konzerthaus Organ, which is a digital recreation of the Rieger Organ in Vienna's Konzerthaus. I am curious to use it in Logic Pro - I've heard Bach on it and the fidelity of sound is amazing!
Monica, "Power... Power... Count to 10... OK, maybe 20...
Certain big programs and workstations, like Sony Vegas Pro, automatically create project folders for working files - check those other folders. If you ever want to search for files in a sea of folders, try downloading a program called "Everything." It makes "lost" file searches a snap. When you bought your computer, was your hard disk partitioned? I place all my program files in C-drive and all my docs in D-drive. It makes searches much easier. PLUS, I save my docs on an external HD full-time. If your hard disk is not partitioned, just get another 500GB-1TB hard disk and make that your docs drive, and use the old disk for programs only. I don't use my new computer for internet unless I am updating. I use my 5 year old computer for the internet, and that way all potential viruses are quarantined on one machine that I could care less about, whereas the new computer stays pure as a vestil virgin... Don't panic yet, the files will turn up when you least expect it.
Let me know.
Happy Easter to everyone!
