I feel better now.
Much Better Now.

Everything runs smoothly after a few benign hiccups.
Everything seems to run smoother and Pro Tools has better features than ever.
Almost time to do some real recording.
It’s past time.
Gonna set up the acoustic drum set tomorrow.
The acoustic drum set is put away in the attic for now. I have an electronic drum set and use Steven Slate Drums as a plugin in Pro Tools to give me organic drum sounds.
